In a match that was closer than the 4-1 score indicates, Johnson City’s girls beat host Oneonta for the second time this season in a Southern Tier Athletic Conference bowling match Monday at Holiday Lanes.
Ten pins separated the teams over three games. JC’s pinfall was 2,537 to the Yellowjackets’ 2,527.
“There were a lot of strikes being thrown,” OHS coach Mark Smithling said. “They just made a few more than we did.”
Emily Loucks led OHS. She had games of 207, 210 and 192 for a 609 series, which Smithling said he believed was a season high for Loucks. Abigail Loucks contributed a 243 game for the Yellowjackets, who received 525 series from Caryn Balnis.
Erin Page’s 228 game highlighted a 611 series for Johnson City.
The Yellowjackets (7-2) will host Windsor on Wednesday.
Unatego 61, Deposit 60
Kellen Komenda scored his season-high of 28 points, including six three-pointers, to lead host Unatego to victory in the Midstate Athletic Conference.
Komenda had 11 points in the fourth quarter for the Spartans, which held a 59-52 lead with 1 minute, 30 seconds left.
The Lumberjacks then scored the next five points to make it a two-point game.
With 16 seconds left, Unatego inbounded to Johnathan Forte, who was fouled. Forte hit both free throws to give the Spartans a 61-57 lead with seven seconds remaining.
Deposit then advanced the ball and called a timeout. After the timeout, Matt Mills hit a three at the buzzer.
‘‘We knew all we had to do is not foul,’’ Unatego coach Cal Locke said of Deposit’s last possession.
Tanner Winchester contributed 13 points, and team-bests of nine rebounds and six assists for Unatego (4-4, 4-0), which will travel to Delhi on Friday.
Devin Schmitz scored a team-high 14 points for Deposit, which received 11 points apiece from Ron Ballard and Mills.
