Sherburne-Earlville 57, Canastota 43

CANASTOTA - Sherburne-Earlville rebounded from a tough loss earlier in the week with a division win on the road Friday night at Canastota.

Brock Weidman led a fourth-quarter push for the Marauders in which they stretched out a two-point lead entering the final eight minutes.

"We've been up and down this season, and even this game was a microcosm of that," said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard. "In the fourth quarter, we settled in, played fundamental basketball, and took the ball to the basket. Good things happen when you do that."

Weidman finished with a game-high 22 points, and 13 of those came in the fourth. Weidman hit an early three-pointer, but then proceeded to make 6-of-6 from the free throw line following drives to the basket.

The Marauders (2-1, 4-3), overall, were 9-of-10 from the charity stripe in the final quarter.

Lucas Carlin had all 14 of his points in the middle stanzas, and Connor Vredenburgh scored 10 of his 12.

"We played really well tonight," said B-G coach Kevin Wehrli. "We executed both offensively and defensively, while playing with tremendous emotion."

David Emerson and Vredenburgh added 12 points apiece, and Isaac Seiler scored 10 for B-G.

So what was the difference in the middle quarters from the first and fourth quarters?

"In the middle two quarters, we were relentlessly attacking the basket," Wehrli said. "Both off of steals in full-court pressure, and in our halfcourt offense."

Tioga took control of Saturday's matchup with B-G from the outset building a 15-point halftime lead.

Evan Sickler had 15 points to lead the Tigers.

Emerson led B-G in the loss scoring 12.

Morris 47, Oxford 44

Frankfort-Schuyler 51, Oxford 49 (Thursday)

MORRIS -  In the consolation game of the Morris-hosted Ray Clement Tournament, Oxford's big second-half comeback fell short in a three-point defeat.

Oxford (0-4) scored just two points in the first quarter, and found itself in a 15-point hole at halftime.

Ethan Fleury scored 16 of his team-high 23 points in the middle two quarters as the Blackhawks closed the deficit to within one basket.

"We started out pretty poorly against the press, and had a lackluster first quarter," said Oxford coach Booker Davis. "But we fought back and made it a game. We were within a score the last couple of minutes."

Oxford was hurt by 2-for-11 free throw shooting in the second half.

Morris was not much better from the foul line finishing 6-for-21.

Scott Murphy had 25 points to lead the Mustangs.

Thursday's contest ended in a two-point defeat to Section III's Frankfort-Schuyler.

Angelo DeSarro and Ronan Harrod each hit a pair of free throws for F-S to hold off the Blackhawks.

Fleury scored 17 for Oxford in the loss and Ethan Ehly added an even dozen.

Oxford 52, Morris 44

OXFORD -  A quick start to the second half helped Oxford open some breathing room as it captured the consolation game of the Ray Clement Tournament beating host Morris on Saturday.

The Blackhawks (4-2) led by five points at halftime, but quickly stretched that lead to 13 starting the third quarter on a 9-1 run.

Ella Kelsey connect for a deuce, Kyla Kelsey-Jones had a three-point point, Naoimi Smith connected for two, and leading scorer Madalyn Barrows capped the early third-quarter spurt with a bucket.

"The third period press break was more organized," said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. "We played more active on defense, and finished the possessions with defensive rebounds."

Barrows had eight points in the fourth quarter for Oxford, and finished with a game-high 24. Kelsey-Jones scored 11 as the two were each named to the all-tournament team.
