ONEONTA - Bainbridge-Guilford lost two of its first four games, one of those defeats its second league game against Delhi in mid-December. Two months later, the Bobcats have not lost since, and Delhi has dropped just one contest. It's a fitting finale to the Midstate Athletic Conference girls’ basketball season as the two clubs vie for league supremacy Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Oneonta State Fieldhouse Gymnasium.
"I think it's going to be brawl," said B-G's longtime head coach, Bob Conway. "Delhi is young and athletic, and (their coach) plays all 12 kids. He keeps them coming in and out. They play aggressive man-to-man defense, and they love to run and shoot."
For its part, B-G was in control of that first meeting leading by double digits in the early part of the second half. Leading scorer and team leader Morgan Bullis found herself in foul trouble, however, and unceremoniously picked up her fifth foul in the first two minutes of the fourth quarter. Delhi was able to rally for a 50-46 win on the Bobcats' home floor.
"We had a young group trying to break their press (at the end of the game), and we turned it over a tremendous amount of times," Conway said. "We also stopped scoring."..
