ONEONTA – B-G-Afton and Sherburne-Earlville each crowned three champions, and the two local clubs placed third and fifth respectively at the Ross Cordell Oneonta Rotary Tournament this past Saturday.
Brothers Tyi (103) and Spencer Franklin (112) provided a solid one-two punch for the Marauders giving their club two-thirds of the club’s team titles. Tyi won a major decision, 12-2, over Saugerties’ Julian Staiano. Spencer followed that up with a high-scoring 20-15 win over David Dellavecchia of East Islip.
S-E assistant coach, Brian Hicks, said the tournament was conducting two matches at a time, and each Franklin was on center stage at the same time. “It was pretty exciting,” Hicks said. “Tyi got up quick on his kid....Spencer and (Dellavecchia) were rolling all over the place. The East Islip coach said it was his kid’s first loss this season.”
