Gutierrez leads Oneonta boys to rout of Forks

(Continued)

“We got off too a slow start but started to execute in transition,” said Oneonta coach Matt Miller, whose team was tied with Forks, 11-11, after one quarter.

Maria DiMartin contributed 12 points and Meg Burns finished with eight for OHS.

“Everbody got involved tonight and everybody played unselfishly,” Miller said. :I think we can still get better and there’s a lot of potential here for this team.”

Alex Yoest paced Chenango Forks with 17 points.

Oneonta (6-0, 5-0) will play at defending Class A state champion Troy on Jan. 4. The Yellowjackets beat Troy twice by double-digits last season.

Harpursville 36, B-G 23

Bainbridge-Guilford whittled to a 15-point halftime deficit to one midway through the fourth quarter before host Harpursville pulled away for a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.

“We can definitely build on this, defensively,” B-G coach Bob Conway said of holding 2012 Class C state finalist Harpursville to 36 points. “Defensively, we’re playing well. We just have to turn it into points.”

The Bobcats (2-3, 2-1) trailed, 19-4, at halftime. But B-G outscored the Hornets, 10-1, in the third period. When Megan Ferrara hit a free throw with 4:42 left, B-G’s deficit was 21-20.

Harpursville’s Tatiana Sosnowsky then hit three straight jumpers, the last of which gave the Hornets a 29-23 lead.

B-G played a triangle-and-2 designed to slow Miranda Drummond and Shelby Medovich. Medovich scored two points. Drummond, who’ll play with Oneonta High standout Mariah Ruff at Division I St. Bonaventure next season, had a game-high 19 points.

“We did a really good job on Medovich and we did a really good job holding Drummond to 19,” Conway said. “We just couldn’t put the ball in the bucket. We’ve just been struggling shooting the ball.”

Ferrara finished with a team-high eight points, one more than teammate Morgan Bullis.

The Bobcats will play Windsor at 7:45 p.m. Friday in a first-round game of B-G’s Kazalski Tournament.
