LAURENS – Strong first and third quarter offensive runs pushed the Oxford Lady Blackhawks to their second straight win Tuesday, defeating non-league opponent Laurens, 52-48.

The Blackhawks jumped out to an early 19-14 lead after one quarter of play. However, Laurens rallied to keep the margin at five points at the intermission.

Out of the break, the Lady Leopards continued to push and eventually tied the game at 29-29 in the third.

Later in the quarter, Oxford’s Allison Beckwith found an open Ellie Ryan who then drained a 3-pointer to start a run by the Blackhawks. During the stretch, teammate Jada Albin hit a shot from beyond the arc to extend the Oxford lead to 10 points.

Laurens didn’t go down without a fight through. Late in the fourth, the home team closed the Blackhawks’ advantage down to two points but were unable to take the lead due to Oxford’s foul shooting in the closing minutes.

Ryan went to the line twice and went 2-for-4 to seal the deal. She finished with a game-high 16 points. Teammate Caitlyn Quigley also had a big night, tallying 13 points and six rebounds. Oxford’s Karley Miller added nine and Madalyn Barrows pulled down a team-high seven boards to go along with her seven points.

Oxford (2-1) hopes to make it three in a row when they step on the floor Saturday against Marathon. Tip-off is slated for 2:30 p.m.

Sherburne-Earlville 46, Mount Markham 35

WEST WINFIELD – A 10 point lead at the end of the first half aiding in the Sherburne-Earlville Lady Marauders 46-25 victory over the Mount Markham Mustangs Tuesday night. The Marauders are 3-0 and currently off to their best start since the 2016-2017 season.

In the opening quarter, S-E scored nine points from the 3-point line, including a deep buzzer beater by Kaitlyn Furner.

The Marauders held the Mustangs to just eight points on the scoreboard in the second while Sherburne-Earlville put up 13 with balanced offensive attack from the team.

S-E matched their second quarter point total in the final eight minutes of play. Tessa Cole score six of her game-high 20 points in the fourth and the Marauders fended off a late game comeback attempt by Mount Markham. Cole added five boards, three assists and three steals to her statline.

Furner nearly recorded a double-double, falling just two rebounds shy of the achievement. She finished the night with 11 points and eight rebounds. Teammate Amberlynn Robertson chipped in six points in the win.

The Mustangs’ Hayleigh Gate ended the night with 14, a team-high in the scoring column.

“Our defense has been excellent as well as our ball movement and shot selection for the most part,” said S-E head coach Jeff Barry on the Marauders strong start to the year. “We haven’t shot well percentage wise yet either so it will be exciting when that comes along.”

Sherburne-Earlville hosts their annual Girls Basketball Tip-off Tournament this weekend. The Marauders see an undefeated Unadilla Valley team in the first round. Also playing in the tournament are Bainbridge-Guilford and Vernon-Verona-Sherrill. B-G and VVS playing first with the Storm and S-E to follow.
