Cooperstown 54, Sherburne-Earlville 35

SHERBURNE – Unlike the first meet this season, Cooperstown did not need a big three-pointers at the end to defeat the Marauders.

Instead, the Redskins’ pressure defense forced 30 turnovers – 17 in the first half – and Brad Ashford’s eight points in the third quarter helped supplement a halftime lead of 11 to an insurmountable 25 points.

“Their pressure defense bothered us, and we didn’t handle it at all,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard. “We did many different things, but it boiled down to not moving to the ball and making bad passes.”

The Marauders’ Caleb Brown scored 13 points and Sean Boise added 12.

Coop: Davolus, 0; Mack Curran, 3 0-0-6, Ryan Davine, 4 0-0-8, Pat Horrigan 3 0-0-6; Brandon Lane, 3 2-2-8, Kyle Liner, 2 0-1-4, Ford, 2 1-2-5; Pat Claudy, 0, Brad Ashford, 8 1-2-17, Alec Silvera, 0, Tyler Hoke, 0, Kyle Steere, 0, Tanner Niedzialkowski, 0. Totals: 25 4-7-54.

S-E: Brett Nelson, 0; Caleb Brown, 5 2-2-13; Ethan Johnson, 0 2-2-2; Andrew Parks, 1 0-0-2; Branden McDaniel, 1 0-0-3; Sean Boise, 4 1-2-12; Phil Price, 0 0-2-0; Ryan Collins, 0 1-2-1; Cody Schraft, 1 0-0-2. Totals: 12 6-10-35 .

Hancock 56, B-G 29

BAINBRIDGE – Evan Whitmore scored 16 points by halftime, and finished with 28 in Hancock’s victory at B-G Thursday.

“They played well together and they played hard. I have to give them credit,” said B-G coach Ben Nelson of the Wildcats.

The Bobcats shot just 24 percent from the field, had 31 turnovers, and a negative-13 rebounding margin.
