Sidney girls hang on for 45-41 sectional victory


Cassidy Newman scored a team-high 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for 14th-seeded Unatego (9-10) in the matchup of MAC teams. Marissa Woodard finished with 12 points and also 10 rebounds for the Spartans, who received 13 points from Samantha Pickaard.

‘‘They had to work hard for the win,’’ Unatego coach Greg Bonczkowski said. ‘‘I could not be prouder of a team. This was clearly one of our better efforts. They played with a lot of heart and pride.”

Harpursville will host No. 6 seed Newfield (12-5) of the Interscholastic Athletic Conference at 7 p.m. Saturday. Newfield topped 11th-seeded Unadilla Valley of the MAC, 56-49, on Wednesday.

“They are very good,” Hornets coach Kurt Ehrensbeck said. “They remind me of Seton. They are extremely fast. We have to come ready to play.”

B-G 34, Greene 19

Rebecca Reyes scored all eight of her points in a 14-2 third quarter that lifted host Bainbridge-Guilford to a first-round win in the Section Four Class C Tournament.

Five of Taylor Palmatier’s nine points also came in the third period for the fifth-seeded Bobcats (13-6), who took a 16-10 lead into halftime.

“We finally hit a couple of shots,” said B-G coach Bob Conway, whose girls eliminated a fellow Midstate Athletic Conference team. “We’ve been playing good defense for most of the year. For the most part, our defense was solid. We didn’t give them many opportunities.”

Katie Carey’s eight points paced 12th-seeded Greene (9-10).

B-G advanced to a sectional quarterfinal at fourth-seeded Elmira Notre Dame (14-5) at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Newfield 56, UV 49

Emily Converse’s 13 points led three double-digit scoring efforts for 11th-seeded Unadilla Valley of the Midstate Athletic Conference, but the Storm exited the Section Four Class C Tournament in the first round.

Taylor Davis contributed 12 points and Hannah Lazarus had 10 points and 12 rebounds for UV (9-9), which faced a 27-24 deficit at halftime.
