HARPURSVILLE- The ever improving Oxford Blackhawks girls basketball team needed every second of the contest on Friday February 10th, when they visited the Hornets of Harpursville. Despite the Blackhawks lulled offensive production over the first three quarters of play, the girls from Oxford lit up the scoreboard seemingly in the final minutes of the game to propel them to another Midstate Athletic Conference win.
Harpursville proved to be a worthy opponent as the Blackhawks were held to a total of nine points in the first half and didn’t record a field goal until 2:18 left in the opening quarter. However, while the Blackhawk offensive effort slowed to a start, the Harpursville offensive didn’t kick in until the second period when the Hornets scored 11 points pushing their lead to a 17-9 advantage at the end of the first half.
