Sherburne-Earlville 59, Canastota 47

SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville advanced to the Section III Class B semifinals Sunday afternoon at Onondaga Community College outlasting Canastota Tuesday night.

Ben Khoury hit three free throws with just over a minute to play, and the Marauders made six total free throws down the stretch to pull away.

“I told the kids before the game that at this point in the season, it’s survive and advance,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard. “The fourth quarter, we survived. We knew this game would be tough because we know each other so well, and they (Canastota) play really hard.”



The Marauders dominated the middle two periods, and after a 22-8 third quarter, stretched their lead to 20 points. Khoury had seven of his 14 points in the third, and Derek Capria hit both of his three-pointers. Capria added 13 points in the win, while Gavin Giroux and Matt Hull netted nine apiece.
