Oxford 5, Harpursville 2
OXFORD – Oxford scored three runs in its opening at-bat Wednesday, and freshman Kevin Davis picked up a complete-game victory for Oxford scattering six Hornets hits.
Richard Ryan’s two-run single plated Jeff Lawton and Andrew Golden to make it 3-0. Cameron Heggie delivered an RBI single in the second, and Matt Moore made it a 5-2 game in the fifth scoring an insurance run after an outfield error.
Davis used 92 pitches striking out nine and walking one for his first win this season. “Kevin pitched very well, He kept them off balance and only walking one was a key for us,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer
Heggie snagged an outfield line drive in the sixth inning, and threw to first base for a double play to end a scoring threat for Harpursville. Davis also picked off a Harpursville runner to help his own cause.
Oxford is 2-3 overall and it hosts Delhi today.

Windsor 12, Norwich 4
WINDSOR - Windsor scored four runs in its opening at-bat, and never looked back to hand Norwich its third straight loss Wednesday afternoon.
Black Knights pitcher Nate Wrighter was dominant out of the gate striking out the first eight Norwich batters he faced en route to the victory.
Wrighter, Josh Cady, Noah Jones, and Jake Conroy all finished with two hits apiece in the win.
“It was tough giving up the early lead, especially since we haven’t been hitting the ball,” said Norwich coach Rich Turnbull. “We started to have better at-bats later in the game, there just weren’t enough good at-bats throughout the game.”
Colby Griffin had two hits and an RBI to pace Norwich, and Rob Wheeler also drove in a run.
Norwich plays at Susquehanna Valley today.
