Sherburne-Earlville 58, Sidney 43

SHERBURNE - Sherburne-Earlville returned to its style of basketball, and did so on senior recognition night beating Sidney Friday in a non-league matchup.

The Marauders entered the game with a four-game losing streak against Section III competition, but the brief return to Section IV competition proved auspicious.

"We had everybody back in the lineup for the first time since before Christmas," said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard. "It felt good to walk in before the game, and count all the guys that were there…we played some really good defense tonight. We played full-court man, and created a lot of turnovers that led to easy baskets in the second quarter."
