Milford girls take control of Tri-Valley East

Staff Report

Maddy Zenir scored the last seven Milford points Friday to lead the Wildcats to a 49-46 Tri-Valley League girls basketball victory over visiting Schenevus on Senior Night.

Zenir matched Schenevus’ Sierra Bentley for game-high scoring honors with 18 points. Zenir also grabbed a team-best 15 rebounds and blocked two shots.

Addy Lawson had five of her 17 points in the fourth quarter for Milford, which outscored Schenevus, 15-11, in the final period.

‘‘It was a back-and-forth battle,’’ said Milford coach Jim Weir, whose team took a one-game lead on the Dragons for first place in the T-V East Division standings.

Alyssa Turner and Sarah Mellor scored 11 and 10 points, respectively, for Schenevus (12-4, 8-4), which hosts Worcester on Monday.

Milford (12-4, 9-3), which honored its lone senior, Kaley Chase, travels to Richfield Springs on Monday.

Oneonta 49, Windsor 31

Brittney Herrick finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead visiting Oneonta High to a Southern Tier Athletic Conference triumph.

Mariah Ruff had five of her 11 points in the first half for the Yellowjackets (15-1, 12-0), who took a 25-12 lead into halftime.

‘‘Her minutes were limited tonight,” OHS coach Matt Miller said of team scoring leader Ruff, who will play for Division I St. Bonaventure next season. “She only played about 12 minutes.”

Maria DiMartin, who will play for Division III Ramapo College next season, contributed nine points for Oneonta.

Chase Moran had a team-best 11 points for Windsor.

OHS visits Horseheads at 6 p.m. Wednesday for a STAC semifinal. The winner advances to the STAC championship game against Owego or Maine-Endwell at 6 p.m. next Friday at Binghamton University.
