S-E tournament

Clinton 61, S-E 41 (Finals)

Unadilla Valley 47, Laurens 17 (consolation)

SHERBURNE – Unbeaten Clinton pounded Sherburne-Earlville on the boards and muscled past the Marauders for the S-E Tournament title Saturday evening.

Tournament MVP, Marquita Pring had 14 points in the victory and Lauren Conway, who did not play in Friday’s win over Unadilla Valley, added 11 points. “They just killed us on the glass, and we couldn’t handle them there,” said S-E coach Jeff Barry. “We couldn’t get any second shots, and we gave them too many.”

Erin Dowdall scored 11 points for S-E, who advanced to the finals with a victory over Laurens Friday, 62-22.

Unadilla Valley notched its first win of the season topping Laurens by 30 points in the consolation game. Katrina Benson had her second straight 10-point game for the Storm, while Theresa Lazarus added eight points, eight rebounds, and four steals. “We came out big in the first quarter and got a lot of points out of our press,” said UV coach Daryl Decker, whose club led 16-4 at the first turn.

Clinton topped UV 49-42 in the first game Friday.

CINCINNATUS – Otselic Valley raced to a fast start and overcame a lull in the second half to win at Cincinnatus Friday night.

Kylie Martin scored a season-high 17 points including 12 in the fourth quarter after Cincy had closed a one-time 19-point OV lead down to seven points. “We were aggressive pushing the ball up the floor and were able to get some quick transition baskets,” said OV coach Kevin Springer of his team’s 18-4 first quarter. “For whatever reason, we put the brakes on and were playing not to lose.”

GREENE – After giving up an 11-point lead, the Trojans (3-2) iced their win over the Warriors at the foul line making 18-of-27 attempts in the fourth stanza.

Mike Porter was 4-for-4 from the stripe and Chris Engler made good on six foul shots in a 24-point stanza. “They were pressuring us throughout the game, and there were some fouls and bumps,” said Greene coach Jeff Paske. “Their press hurt us during the comeback, but we adjusted and were able to finish the game out.”

Porter led with 19 points and Cameron Daniels added a career-high 18 points including seven in the fourth quarter. Daniels grabbed a team-high six rebounds and Dustin Turner had four blocked shots.

Otselic Valley 58, Stockbridge Valley 43

SOUTH OTSELIC – After a slow start, the Vikings pulled away in the second quarter to build a double-digit lead and defeat the Indians Friday night.

David Cerasani had his second straight 20-point game leading the Vikings with 21 points, while Robert Guyer tacked on 16. “Defensively, we were able to create some turnovers, and that gave us a chance at some transition baskets,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “We needed that because we’re really struggling in our halfcourt offense.”

OV is at McGraw Tuesday.

SV: Smith, 0 0-1-0; Hadlock, 1 0-1-2; Tuke, 1 0-2-2; March, 0; Maris, 1 2-2-4; Stewart, 2 5-9-10; Slater, 11 0-0-22; Jermaine, 1 1-2-3; Mennig,0. Totals; 17 8-17-43.

G-MU 58, Schenevus 42

COPES CORNERS – G-MU raced to an 18-point halftime lead, and maintain strong defense throughout to improve to 2-0 in Tri-Valley League play (2-1 overall).

“We were very sharp in the first half, shot it well, and executed our press efficiently,” said G-MU coach Bill Hartman. “The kids followed the scouting report to a tee.”

Drew Hartman, Cody Hall, and Peter Schmidt all had 11 points for the Raiders, and the scored was spread out evenly down the lineup. “That’s one of the most positive outcomes we could have asked for,” Hartman said. “If you spread the scoring out, the defense doesn’t know where the offense is coming from, and they can’t focus on one person.”

G-MU is at Morris tonight.

G-MU (2-1) : Paul Wildfeir; 3 1-2-7, Nate Talbot; 0, Dan Moreno; 0, Drew Hartman; 4 2-2-11, Cody Hall; 5 1-1-11, Luke Hall; 1 0-0-2, Tim Sloan; 0, Travis Andrews; 3 2-2-8, Pat Mosomillo; 0, Luke Acanfora; 1 0-0-2, Peter Schmidt; 5 1-2-11, Nate Dubben; 3 0-0-6. Totals: 25 7-9-58.
