Sidney 56, Oxford 47

OXFORD – Sidney caught fire in the middle two quarters to open a 14-point lead and win at Oxford Tuesday.

Jeremy Nelson’s three-point play late in the first quarter put Oxford in front, 13-10. Sidney embarked on a 15-5 second quarter, and extended the lead to 40-26 after three periods.

Mike Guerriere hit three three-pointers in the third, and Dylan Umbra canned a trifecta at the third-quarter horn.

Oxford rallied in the fourth closing the gap to 48-45 in the final minute before Sidney sealed the game from the foul line.

Alex Champlin had 10 points in the fourth quarter to finish with 22 points and a team-best 15 rebounds. Tom Gould scored 14 points and grabbed nine boards. “We were just in an offensive funk most of the game, and we didn’t execute well,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis. “Sidney was on fire in the second and third quarters.”
