Gutierrez & Co. lead Jackets to STAC triumph


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.”
