Richfield Springs girls upset Morris in Tri-Valley League

Staff Report

Kaity Richvalsky had 15 points and four steals Friday, leading Richfield Springs to a 41-34 girls basketball upset of previously undefeated Morris in the Tri-Valley League.

Rebecca Smith and Jerikah Hext grabbed nine rebounds apiece for the Indians (7-3, 4-2), who outscored the Mustangs, 19-4, in the fourth quarter.

RS coach Stacey Mayne credited the Indians’ 28-8 second-half run to her team’s composure and defensive intensity.

Alexis Forgit’s 14 points paced the Mustangs (9-1, 5-1), who received 12 rebounds from Haley Wist.

Richfield Springs travels to Edmeston on Tuesday.

Oneonta 51, SV 29

Mariah Ruff had eight rebounds and seven steals to go along with a game-high 20 points as Oneonta High remained undefeated with a Southern Tier Athletic Conference victory on the road.

“It was a battle,” said OHS coach Matt Miller, whose team took a 23-18 lead into halftime. “We had three players (Ruff, Meg Burns and Maria DiMartin) with two fouls in the second quarter, so they had to come out. We got really, really good production from the kids who played those minutes.”

Brieanna Baker contributed nine points for the defending Section Four Class B and STAC champion Yellowjackets (8-0, 7-0), who put the game away with a 16-4 fourth quarter.

Maddie Blackman’s 11 points paced the Sabers, who were held to single-digit outputs in each period.

OHS visits Troy for a non-league game Saturday.

Sidney 53, Afton 51

Jolene Krom scored all 10 of her points in the fourth quarter, when Sidney outscored Afton, 21-7, to erase a 12-point deficit en route to a MAC victory at home.

‘‘We called a timeout with 5:40 left and switched to a full-court press,’’ Sidney coach Brad Aldrich said.

Sidney took the lead with 17 seconds left, then got a block from Bethany Karl 3 seconds later. Jolene Krom went on to make 1 of 2 free throws for the final margin, capping her 10-point night.
