Bliss, Sims carry Redskins to OT win

(Continued)

On Cooperstown’s final possession of regulation, it missed a three-pointer, but Niko Knull rebounded the miss and kicked it out to Bliss, who hit a three from the key just before the buzzer to tie the score.

Jordan Manikus contributed 14 points for Cooperstown, which will host Westmoreland on Monday.

Austin Jasper had 20 points to lead S-E.

Unatego 66, Harpursville 46

Kellen Komenda’s 16 points led four Unatego players in double figures as the Spartans cruised to a Midstate Athletic Conference win at home.

Tanner Winchester scored 12 points, Quinn Barnhart had 10 points and seven rebounds, and Tyler Butler finished with eight points.

“It really started with team defense,” Unatego coach Jim Knight said. “Everyone was working on the defensive end and that helped us in transition.”

Justin Koranka had 14 points to lead Harpursville, which trailed, 30-19, at halftime.

Unatego (6-3, 5-0) will travel to Greene on Wednesday.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

SK 41, Jefferson 27

Kayla Craft’s 22-point night included a 10-for-12 showing at the free throw line and two three-pointers as host South Kortright won in the Delaware League.

The Rams (10-0, 8-0) played without starting guard Tori Rockefeller, who has an injured right ankle. SK coach Josh Burroughs said he expects Rockefeller to return for his team’s next game Wednesday at home against Roxbury.

Craft also had 11 rebounds and eight steals.

Of Craft’s three-pointers, Burroughs said: “That range makes her harder to guard.”

Miquela Hanselman finished with 11 rebounds, five steals and four points for SK, which led, 24-14, at halftime.

Defensively, SK kept Jefferson in single digits in all four quarters.

“Burk Cole stepped in for Tori and did a great job,” Burroughs said. “She disrupted their offense, tipped balls and had some steals. Brianna Laing is doing a nice job as an eighth-grader and Kayla Warycha had a nice game.”

Elissa Starheim scored 16 points to lead the J-Hawks.
