Graham Wooden’s game-high 29 points were not enough as Chenango Forks held onto a first-quarter lead to defeat host Oneonta, 61-57, in Southern Tier Athletic Conference boys basketball Friday, Jan. 17, at Drago Gymnasium.

Forks took a 20-11 lead after the first quarter, and carried a 29-21 lead into the break after Oneonta struggled from the field in the first half.

The Yellowjackets showed signs of life in the third quarter, but a few defensive miscommunications and missed opportunities allowed the deficit to remain at eight entering the fourth quarter.

With the deficit at 10 early in the fourth, the Yellowjackets turned to a full-court trap defense, and got a shot of energy from Aidan Mackey. Khysani Atkinson scored in close before Mackey got a steal and sent a transition pass to Zyeir Lawrence for two points. The next Forks possession saw Mackey get another steal and a layup for himself, and the following saw Atkinson turn a steal into two points for Wooden, making the deficit two.

OHS never fully erased the deficit, however, as Marcus Hanyon hit a 3-pointer and Matthew Paske hit a free throw to return the deficit to six and the momentum to the visitors.

Wooden scored 14 in the fourth quarter and six in the third to get 20 of his 29 in the second half. He finished with 11 field goals, three of them from beyond the arc, and a 4-for-6 mark at the foul line.

Lawrence followed with eight points on three field goals and a pair of foul shots, while Kevin Kurkowski hit a pair of 3s for six points.

Alex Osterhoudt and Tanner Russin also hit 3-pointers for the Yellowjackets.

Aidan Ackerson led Forks with 17 points on eight field goals and a foul shot. Garrett Kraack had 15 and Paske totaled 11, while Trevor Warpus and Hanyon each had nine. No other Forks player scored.

Oneonta (9-3) will visit Susquehanna Valley at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24.

Unatego 59, Bainbridge-Guilford 33

Unatego remained unbeaten in Midstate Athletic Conference play with a defeat of Bainbridge-Guilford.

Austin Faulkner also reached double digits, totaling 11 points for the Spartans.
