The Daily Star

---- — Staff Report

Jordan Gutierrez finished with a game-high 27 points and nine rebounds to lead Oneonta High to a 66-41 boys basketball victory over Chenango Valley on Tuesday night in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference.

Gutierrez hit five of Oneonta’s season-high 12 three-point field goals. George Foti contributed four threes for the Yellowjackets (3-1, 2-1), who got one apiece from Albert Odero, Mike Wolstenholme and Brock Eichler.

“Jordan started out with three threes to start the game, so they switched to box-and-one on him,” OHS coach Jerry Mackey said. “Then Wolstenholme hit a three and Albert Odero and Ben Southern each made a basket. They stayed in the box-and-one and then Foti came in and hit three threes, so they went back to man.”

Foti finished with 12 points and Odero had 11 for the Jackets, who took a 36-21 lead into halftime.

Gutierrez followed with 10 points in a 21-10 third period for OHS, which received seven from Odero in the quarter.

“We had good spacing, so it was tough for them to double (Gutierrez),” Mackey said. “We had a good start and it’s good to see the other kids step up. Jordan’s going to get his for sure, but it’s good to see that happen when other guys are scoring, too.”

OHS visits Windsor for a STAC game Dec. 18.

Deposit 58, B-G 52

Kyle Hanvey had 15 points and five steals for Bainbridge-Guilford, which lost a non-league game at home.

Mike Carlin contributed 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats (0-4), who were outscored, 21-9, in the fourth quarter.

“We just couldn’t buy a basket and we didn’t execute well,” B-G coach Greg Warren said. “We did a nice job up to that point. We pressed most of the game and played pretty good defensively, but execution hurt us at the end.”

David Schaeffer’s game-high 19 points paced the Lumberjacks, who received 14 from Gary Fineout.

B-G opens its Midstate Athletic Conference schedule Thursday at Afton.

LF 63, Cooperstown 52

Christian Alexander scored 11 of his game-high 20 points in the second quarter, but host Cooperstown fell in the Center State Conference.

Park Summers contributed 14 points and Grant Davine finished with seven for the Hawkeyes.

“We turned the ball over at the end and didn’t get great shots in the fourth quarter,” Cooperstown coach Dave Bertram said.

The Hawkeyes (2-2, 0-1) host West Canada Valley on Friday.

Windsor 66, Sidney 48

Nick Meno paced Sidney with a game-high 17 points, but the Warriors fell short in a non-league game at home.

Nathan Reiter finished with 15 points to lead Windsor (2-1), which received all 10 of Frank Martino’s points in the second quarter. Martino helped the Black Knights to a 37-19 lead at halftime.

“We went cold and they continued to execute,” said Sidney coach Mike Brazee, who also received 12 points from Wyatt McKee.

Bill Kozak contributed eight points for the Warriors (0-2), who host Greene on Friday.

Stamford 60, Windham 48

Senior forward Gregg Mattice finished with game-highs of 20 points and 19 rebounds to lead unbeaten Stamford to a Delaware League win at home.

“He’s the best or second-best rebounder I’ve ever coached,” Stamford coach Greg O’Connell said of Mattice, who’s averaging 20 points and 15 rebounds during the Indians’ 4-0 start to the season. “He’s not real tall, but he’s extremely strong.”

Mattice also had four steals for the Indians (3-0 in DL play), who received 16 points from younger brother Geoff Mattice, 12 from Glen Cioccari, six steals from Greg Keating and six assists from Colby Fancher.

Majd Ismail and David Saunders scored 16 points apiece to pace the Warriors (0-3, 0-2), who trailed, 29-19, at halftime.

“We’d get up big on them and they’d come back,” O’Connell said. “I give Windham all kinds of credit. They’re going to give some teams some problems if they play as well and as hard as they did tonight.”

Stamford will play Gilboa at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the opening round of the Margaretville Tournament, which features Roscoe against the host Blue Devils at 7 p.m. Thursday. The consolation and championship games are set for 1 and 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Laurens 50, Franklin 25

Jared Conklin hit all four of his three-pointers in the opening quarter, when Laurens outscored host Franklin, 21-4, en route to a Tri-Valley League victory.

Conklin finished with 14 points for the Leopards, who received 13 points from Mitchell Barra.

“They must have shot about 80 percent in the first half,” Franklin coach Darryl Beers said of Laurens, which hit six of its seven threes before halftime. “We probably shot about 8 percent. We couldn’t put the ball in the ocean.”

Matt D’Angelo and Derek Beers scored eight points apiece for the Purple Devils (1-3, 0-2), who host Gilbertsville-Mount Upton on Dec. 18.

Fallon and DeVries, who grabbed eight rebounds apiece, each scored 10 points apiece in the Panthers’ 27-3 first quarter.

Worcester 56, CV-S 47

Wyatt Crowley’s free throw with 5 seconds left tied the score at 44, but host Cherry Valley-Springfield fell in overtime in the Tri-Valley League.

“We just couldn’t finish in overtime,” said CV-S coach Terry Brant, whose team was outscored, 12-3, in the extra period.

Devin Adams and Tim Mould finished with 18 points apiece for the Wolverines, who benefited from an 8-for-12 showing from the foul line in overtime.

Richfield Springs (2-0, 1-0) will play a Tri-Valley League game at Worcester on Friday.
