Sidney ends skid vs. B-G/A


Sidney coach Tim Stafford couldn’t give an exact date, but he estimated his team’s wrestling victory over visiting Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton ended a drought against the Bears that dated to the 1970s.

“We’ve certainly taken our lickings from B-G/A, so it’s nice to beat them,” Stafford said following the Warriors’ 42-36 Midstate Athletic Conference win.

Two pins played a big role in this win.

Seth Arnold sealed the victory with a first-period pin over Collin Hotaling at 113 points. The win gave the Warriors a 42-30 lead with one match remaining. Arnold led, 4-2, at the time of the pin.

Sidney’s Derek Northrop also had a big pin at 138 pounds. He trailed, 4-3, in the second period against Jesse Griswold before securing a cradle that led to the pin at 3:23.

Alex Morrow (220) and Austin Dean (285) also had pins for the Warriors (10-3, 7-1), who will host Whitney Point at 6 tonight in a first-round match of the Section Four Dual Meet Tournament. If Sidney wins, it will advance to the quarterfinals Saturday at Chenango Forks.

Ben Bivar (120) had a pin and Jamie Griswold (152) won by technical fall for B-G/A.


Unatego 54, Sidney 32

A season-high 28 points from Casey Manzanero helped host Unatego improve to 7-0 in the Midstate Athletic Conference.

“She did a nice job of getting to her mid-range jumper,” Unatego coach Greg Bonczkowski said of Manzanero. “She was finding open gaps in their zone and making some easy shots. She also did a nice job on the offensive boards. She did a nice job of going after the ball when it was up on the glass and then going back up and finishing.”

With Kelsey Decker scoring eight of team-high 12 points in the opening half, Sidney kept things close at 24-19.

But Manzanero scored six points during a 13-4 third-quarter run for Unatego.
