Otselic Valley 54, Blessed Virgin Mary 45

SOUTH OTSELIC – A strong fourth quarter aided by 8-for-10 foul shooting lifted Otselic Valley to its second win over Blessed Virgin Mary this season Monday night at home.

Trevor Marston scored 11 of his 14 points in the final quarter, while also playing shut-down defense on BVM’s leading scorer, James Payne. Payne had 18 points in the two schools’ first meeting, but just two last night.

“We’ve had trouble scoring all year, but tonight we did a better job getting the ball to the basket and getting the ball in places where we can score,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “We’ve been hurrying our shots, but our judgement on shot selection was much better.”

Connor Smith also keyed a 25-14 final period scoring all eight of his points off the bench. Jason Olin added 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Matt Neal poured in a dozen points as well.

OV (5-2) is idle until Dec. 27 when it plays in the DeRuyter Tournament.

BVM: Lapka, 7 3-4-19; Massett, 4 2-4-10; Netti, 0; Marion, 2 0-0-4; James Payne, 0 2-2-2; Peterson, 1 1-2-3; Mills, 2 0-0-5. Totals: 16 8-12-45.

Greene 73, Owego 57

GREENE - Greene evened its record on the season Monday night beating its second Southern Tier Athletic Conference team this month.

Dan Treadwell scored 22 points for the Trojans, Joe Beckwith knocked in four three-pointers for 12 points, and Brandon Davis added 10.

Greene shot a season-high 59 percent from the field, and that included eight made three-pointers. “We’ve haven’t come close to shooting that well this season,” said Greene coach Rick Smith. “Both teams shot it well, but we were able to get some defensive stops when we needed them. This puts us in a nice position to make run before the holidays.”

Greene (2-2) plays Deposit on Wednesday.

Sherburne-Earlville 60, Norwich 26

SHERBURNE – In a non-league matchup Monday, Sherburne-Earlville picked up eight pins to go with a pair of forfeits in a lopsided victory over the undermanned Purple Tornado.

The Marauders, leading 36-26 with four weight classes left, closed with forfeit and three pins from Jack Buell (170), Dalton Sopchak (182), and Gavin Paul (195).

“They were down a couple of guys, and we just got more pins out of our lightweights and middleweights than we normally do,” said S-E assistant coach Brian Hicks. “We’re really strong in the upper weights, and that is where (Norwich) is really young.”
