SK, Laurens girls win Grasso openers

Staff Report

Tori Rockefeller had a game-high 17 points, seven rebounds, six steals and six assists to lead South Kortright to a 51-37 girls basketball victory over Gilbertsville-Mount Upton on Friday in the opening round of the Pat Grasso Tournament at Laurens.

Rockefeller scored six points in a 17-3 second quarter that helped the defending Delaware League champion Rams to a 26-18 lead at halftime in the season opener for both teams.

“We made a few defensive changes,” SK coach Josh Burroughs said. “With the speed of Rockefeller, that allowed us to score in transition.”

Mackenzie Talbot finished with a team-high 16 points for Gilbertsville-Mount Upton, which was outscored, 17-4, in the third quarter. The Raiders will play Afton in the consolation game at 6 p.m. Saturday.
