SHERBURNE – Gavin Giroux scored the first eight points of the second half and had 11 in the third quarter as Sherburne-Earlville was able to extend a four-point halftime lead to 19 in Friday night’s win

Giroux finished with a career high 21 points and 20 rebounds leading three S-E players in double figures scoring. Ben Khoury and Matt Hull each had a dozen, and Derek Capria was a perfect 8-for-8 from the foul line.

The Marauders scored the first 10 points of the game dominating the offensive glass. Giroux had eight in the opening quarter, Hull hit a three, and Khoury scored on a layup to end the period.

Clinton, just a one-win team this season, erupted for 26 second-quarter points closing the 13-point deficit to 33-29 at halftime.

Malaquias Canery spearheaded the comeback with nine points in the second, and two free throws from Kyle Morris drew Clinton to within 30-29 with 53 seconds left in the half.



After a pair of defensive stops, Khoury, who was on the bench with two fouls, was inserted into the lineup with under 15 seconds to play. Khoury completed a traditional three-point play just before the halftime buzzer raising the S-E lead back to four.

“The second quarter we didn’t play nearly as well as the first, but in the third quarter, we forced a lot of turnovers and put the hammer to them,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard.

Saturday, the Marauders (9-2) picked up their eighth straight victory beating Camden on the road.

Khoury and Giroux scored 14 apiece, while Capria and Hull netted nine each. “We’re very happy to be where we are,” Vibbard said.. “We’re playing smart, aggressive basketball, and good team defense.”

S-E hosts Cooperstown Friday.
