Mustangs girls down Wildcats

STAFF REPORT

Kelsea Webster’s game-high 20 points helped host Morris to a 45-38 Tri-Valley League girls basketball victory over Milford on Friday.

Webster had eight of Morris’ 11 points in the fourth quarter. She also hit 6 of 7 free throws during that span to turn back a Milford rally.

Addy Lawson had 19 points for Milford (7-4, 5-3), which trailed, 34-19, after three quarters. Peggy Paffenroth contributed seven points for the Wildcats.

Amanda Flint finished with eight points for the Mustangs (8-2, 7-1), who will travel to Stamford on Jan. 22.

Oneonta 64, Windsor 18

Mariah Ruff and Natalie Vanderlaan-Meyering had 16 and 14 points, respectively, as unbeaten Oneonta High cruised to a Southern Tier Athletic Conference win at home.

Ruff and Vanderlaan-Meyering combined for 17 first-quarter points as the Yellowjackets bolted to a 24-3 lead.

“We pressed in the first quarter and they struggled to get into their offense,” OHS coach Matt Miller said.

Vanderlaan-Meyering had 10 rebounds and seven blocks, and Ruff finished with eight assists.

OHS again played without senior guard Dani Nicosia, who has been out for close to a month after suffering a concussion.

“She’s had headaches every day since the concussion,” Miller said of Nicosia. “We’re hoping to get back sooner rather than later. When we play better teams, we’ll need that second ballhandler and someone who can score in transition.”

OHS will play at Norwich on Friday in a rematch of last season’s Section Four Class B final that the Yellowjackets won.

The following Sunday, the Yellowjackets will play Penfield _ a squad that advanced to the Class AA state final last season _ at Onondaga Community College.

UV 62, Oxford 28

Amanda Off and Jordan Anderson scored 18 and 17 points, respectively, to lead host Unadilla Valley in the Midstate Athletic Conference.

Anderson scored all 17 of her points in the first half as the Storm opened a 37-12 lead.
