Blue Devils need OT to beat Davenport


Kyle Short scored six of his game-high 20 points in overtime when visiting Margaretville scored 13 unanswered points to beat Davenport, 45-32, in a Delaware League boys basketball game Wednesday.

Davenport’s Justin Fisher tied the score at 32 with 47 second left in regulation. He hit a jumper from just inside the three-point line and was fouled. His free throw tied the score.

“We’re a young team, four sophomores starting,” Davenport coach Lee Fisher said. “We had to battle to get back into the game. After we tied the score, I don’t know, maybe it took too much out of us.”

Short had eight points in first quarter as Margaretville took a 14-6 lead. He went 6-for-6 from the foul line in overtime.

“From our perspective, I think you just treat it like a victory,” Fisher said. “Margaretville, they’re one of the better teams in the area. I think our young kids played hard tonight.”

Mitch Hull scored 13 points and Ryan Sanford scored 10 points for Margaretville (8-1).

Fisher had a team-high 10 points for Davenport (3-5), which will host Downsville on Friday.

H-T 52, Stamford 50

Neal Statts got his points at the right time for host Hunter-Tannersville, which won in the Delaware League.

Statts scored three of his five points from the foul line in the final 1:30 seconds, helping the Wildcats hold off the Indians’ fourth-quarter comeback.

After making two free throws to give H-T a 51-48 lead with about 90 seconds left, Statts made one of two free throws with seven seconds left to make it 52-50.

Stamford’s Matt Anderson missed a two-point shot at the buzzer. It was the Indians’ first league loss of the season.

“It was a total game of runs,” H-T coach Chris Glennon said. “Look at quarter scoring. It tells the whole story. They led by three at halftime. We stormed them in the third quarter, then they came back in the fourth.
