Owego comes on strong; Oxford finishes with winning record


Owego 52, Norwich 19

NORWICH – Owego finished with four pins over the final four matches to pull away from Norwich on the Tornado’s senior recognition night.

Jarred Quigley started the run at 130 pounds, and Josh Souto (145) finished the 24-point spurt. “It was a pretty close match to that point, and even those (last four) were evenly matched,” said Norwich coach Terry Hagenbuch. “Mike Shalna (130) nearly had a pin, and Eric Muserallo (140) was tied at 5-5.

“We have been giving up about 50 points a match, but tonight was a much better effort out of our kids. The score really wasn’t indicative of the matches.”

Josh Steward won by forfeit at 189 and Shawn Wood (215) added a pin to put the Tornado on the board. Mike Hull (112) grabbed an overtime decision win, while Rick Reihl gained a major decision victory at 125 pounds.

Norwich competes in the STAC Tournament at Johnson City Friday and Saturday.

Seton Catholic Central 50, Norwich 43

BINGHAMTON – Norwich suffered its fifth single-digit loss by seven points or less, and has lost its last three games by a combined 11 points.

Max Jones led the Saints with 18 points, and Dan Gosney pumped in a surprising 12 in the victory. “This gym has been difficult for us, but we were good tonight,” said Norwich coach Mark Abbott. “We just had some trouble finishing.”

In the last eight days Norwich lost by three to Chenango Valley in overtime, by one to Susquehanna Valley last Friday, and last night’s defeat ended the disappointing trio of setbacks. “We knew this would be a tough stretch, but it’s tough for us because we were right there in all of them,” Abbott said. “It was another good physical effort on our part, but we have to find a way to finish games. It’s tough being close and not coming out on top.”

Robert Martin scored 15 points for Norwich (8-6) and Nate Foote added 10. The Tornado play at Maine-Endwell Friday.
