Balance is key for OHS boys

Five Oneonta High players scored at least eight points and the Yellowjackets opened a 19-point halftime lead en route to a 72-43 non-league boys basketball victory Monday at Walton.

Paul Bischoff scored a team-high 16 points – 13 coming before halftime – to lead the Yellowjackets, who received 14 points from George Foti. Bischoff hit both of his three-pointers during a 21-7 first-quarter run for OHS.

Albert Odero and Jordan Gutierrez had 13 points apiece for OHS. Odero had 11 points in the first half, which ended with OHS ahead, 43-24.

Gutierrez came into the night averaging an area-best 28.2 points.

“He’s a very good shooter,” Walton coach Dave Gardepe said of Gutierrez. “He’s very calm and composed and he doesn’t take bad shots.”

Brock Eichler contributed eight points for the Yellowjackets (10-1), who will travel to Johnson City on Wednesday.

Michael Lindsay scored 16 points to lead Walton, which will travel to Bainbridge-Guilford on Wednesday.

SK 64, B-G 42

Tyler Lamport’s 18 points paced five players who scored at least eight points as visiting South Kortright earned a non-league victory.

Griff Metzko had 14 points, Brett Post finished with 10, and Tyler Magnan and Dan Nelson had eight points apiece for the Rams, who led, 37-19, at halftime.

“They applied pressure and we turned it over,” Bainbridge-Guilford coach Greg Warren said.

Lucas Butcher had 16 points, six rebounds and three steals for the Bobcats, who received nine points and seven rebounds from Dylan Moffitt.

B-G (1-9) will host Walton on Wednesday.

Milford 64, Worcester 22

Fourteen of Peyton Griffiths’ game-high 19 points came as visiting Milford built a 32-12 halftime advantage en route to a Tri-Valley League victory.

Paul Van Warner finished with 11 points, including three of the Wildcats’ nine three-pointers.

Milford’s defense also forced 32 turnovers.

“They’re good,” Worcester coach Jim Kenyon said of Milford. “It’s going to be a good battle Friday night between Milford and Edmeston. That should be a pretty good game.”
