OHS boys struggle, fall to 0-2

Staff Report

Oneonta High has nowhere to go but up.

Alec Picinich’s nine points marked the Yellowjackets’ best offensive effort Friday as host OHS fell, 43-30, to Seton Catholic Central in the consolation game of the Anthony C. Drago Boys Basketball Tournament.

“We were down three at the half, but we just didn’t get anything going,” said OHS coach Jerry Mackey, whose team opened the season Tuesday with a 52-42 loss to Johnson City in the first round of the Drago Tournament. “They did a good job pressuring our guards (in the third quarter) and we turned it over a bunch of possessions in a row. That’s not a good recipe for offensive efficiency.”

The Saints (1-1) took a 19-16 lead into halftime, then outscored Oneonta, 18-11, in the third period. David George scored seven of his game-high 19 points in the third quarter for Seton, which also received seven of all-tournament selection Patrick Gosney’s nine points in the period.

SCC reserve Michael Korchak also had nine points, all before halftime.

Mitchel Couch scored seven points for the second straight game for OHS, which received five from all-tournament pick Noah Sheehan.

“Hopefully, this is something we can fix,” said Mackey, whose Jackets were held to three points — all from the free throw line — in the fourth quarter. “The sooner, the better.”

Oneonta is off until Dec. 4, when it opens its Southern Tier Athletic Conference schedule at Windsor.
