Greene 50, Sidney 29

GREENE – Greene continues to improve each time out, and a 21-point win over a talented Sidney club on Friday night was further evidence of that team growth.

“We had a bad quarter against Sidney the first time we played them, and they were able to get back in the game,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “This time, when we had a bad quarter, we still played great defense.”

The Trojans (4-2) began to shake the Warriors in the third quarter extending their lead to 10 before a dominant fourth stanza put the victory on ice.

Erin Smith bucketed 13 points, Liz Wentlent scored 12 points to go with eight rebounds, and Andrea Day added 12 points.

“This was our best game of the year – by far,” Gorton said. “We showed so much character in the Harpursville game, and that carried over.”

Sidney: Meredith Delello, 1 1-2-3, Danielle Martindale, 1 1-2-3, Lyndsay Delello, 1 0-2-2, Kate Philpott, 1 1-2-3, Stephanie Morrow, 0, Danielle Gravel, 5 0-0-13; Rachel Decker, 0 1-2-1; Brittany Ward, 1 0-0-2; Diane Mercurio, 0; Stephanie Simonds, 1 0-0-2. Totals: 11 4-10-29.

Sherburne-Earlville 55, Cooperstown 37

COOPERSTOWN – Sherburne-Earlville established itself as division title contender in the Center State Conference with an impressive 18-point road victory against Cooperstown Saturday.

“Cooperstown is always a tough place to play,” said S-E coach Karen Mulligan. “We came out and had a great first half.”

The Redskins tried man-to-man defense in the first quarter, and Bridget Irwin scored nine points on the interior to squash that defensive approach.

Cooperstown switched to a zone defense in the second stanza, and that resulted in three straight S-E three balls in as many possessions to catapult the Marauders to a nine-point halftime lead.

Irwin had her fifth double-double in six games finishing with 17 points and 10 boards. Caitlynn Adams filled up the stat sheets as well scoring 17, grabbing 12 rebounds, and added seven assists, five blocked shots, and four steals.

S-E hosts Ilion tonight.

S-E: Nikki Button, 0; Briana Vibbard, 1 0-0-2; Kristi Irwin, 3 0-0-8; Caitlynn Adams, 8 0-2-17; Bridget Irwin, 8 1-4-17; Courtney Jasper, 0; Nicole Carpenter, 0; Kristi Vibbard, 3 0-0-7; Liz Farrow, 2 0-0-4; Samantha Hill, 0. Totals: 25 1-6-55.
