---- — Staff Report

It’s starting to look like Easter in Delhi.

Every Delhi player who entered Wednesday’s non-league boys basketball game had a basket as the host Bulldogs topped Midstate Athletic Conference rival Walton, 63-57.

“That’s the fourth game in a row that everybody who dressed for us scored a bucket,” Delhi coach Warren Kelly said. “Everybody’s contributing right now.”

Alex Specht and Connor Gioffe made the biggest contributions for the Bulldogs (4-0), scoring 19 and 15 points, respectively. Gioffe’s total included a 9-for-11 showing at the foul line, including a 4-for-4 effort down the stretch that helped secure the victory.

Mike Staples scored all 12 of his points in the second half for Delhi, which took a 25-17 lead into halftime.

Colin Adam’s 15 points paced the Warriors, who received 12 points from Michael Lindsay and 11 from Jared Beach. Walton finished with seven three-point field goals, including three from Eric Zimmerman (nine points).

Delhi opens MAC play at home Friday against Unadilla Valley.

Davenport 49, H-T 33

Josh Davi scored a game-high 16 points, including four three-pointers, to lead visiting Davenport to a Delaware League victory.

Davi hit three threes in the third quarter, when Davenport went on a 15-10 run.

‘‘We didn’t close out on Davi very well,’’ H-T coach Chris Glennon said.

Dylan Legg had a game-high 12 points for Hunter-Tannersville (2-2, 1-1), which finished 2-for-17 at the foul line.

‘‘We have to shoot the ball better from the foul line and the field,’’ said Glennon, whose team trailed, 22-13, at halftime.

H-T travels to Windham on Friday.
