Oxford 56, Unatego 42
OTEGO – Coming off a disheartening divisional playoff loss to Harpursville two days earlier, Oxford jumped out to an early lead against Unatego, and won its final regular season game on Thursday.
Haley Witchella scored 16 points for the Blackhawks (15-4), eight coming in the first quarter when the Blackhawks jumped out to a 17-11 lead. Oxford’s defense held Unatego scoreless the first five minutes of the second quarter, and extended that lead to 27-14 at halftime.
“I was a little concerned about this being a ‘trap game’ coming off Tuesday’s game,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “I felt we needed to come out and play with effort on our end, and I felt we did that.”
