SHERBURNE - Sherburne-Earlville (10-2) extended its winning streak to nine games beating Cooperstown at home Friday night.
The Marauders opened their lead to 12 points at halftime after a slow start. Derek Capria had seven points in the second, and Gavin Giroux scored six in the period.

In S-E's first meeting with Cooperstown this season, it needed to score five points in the final eight seconds to win by four points, Vibbard said.

Norwich's offense caught fire in the third period putting 28 points on the board to pad a 30-15 halftime advantage. Five different players had at least two buckets in the quarter.
