Oneonta survives Sabers, 47-46

JARED BOMBA | The Daily Star Oneonta’s Carter Mackey and Kevin Kurkowski (22) contest a shot by Susquehanna Valley’s Jahreed Isles during the second quarter of a Southern Tier Athletic Conference game Monday, Jan. 6, at Oneonta High School.

Graham Wooden’s coast-to-coast basket with less than 10 seconds remaining saved Oneonta on a poor shooting night as the Yellowjackets defeated Susquehanna Valley, 47-46, in Southern Tier Athletic Conference boys basketball.

Trailing, 46-45, Wooden took the ball from under his own basket, driving and finishing with his left hand to put OHS in front in the dying seconds.

The late basket looked like it may not have been necessary early as Oneona hit four 3-pointers to take a 20-13 lead after one period.

The Yellowjackets did not hit another shot from beyond the arc, however, nor did they hit double digits in any of the three remaining quarters. The deficit grew to 29-19 at halftime, but SV finished by outscoring the Yellowjackets, 27-18, in the second half.

Khi Atchinson hit a pair of 3-pointers and totaled five field goals and a team-high 13 points for Oneonta (7-1). Wooden finished with 11 points on five field goals and Khysani Atkinson had eight points.

Matt Fiorentino and Joe Waitkavicz each scored 12 points to lead SV. Zach Taro was also in double digits with 10.

Stamford 50, Walton 37

Melanie Hoyt scored a game-high 23 points and finished with a double-double to take Stamford past visiting Walton in non-league play.

The Indians took a 20-10 lead after one quarter, but Walton stemmed the tide to keep the deficit at 10 entering halftime. The Warriors cut the deficit to five after three quarters and got it down to three, but a 10-2 run in the fourth helped Stamford pull away.

“It seemed like it was at three for a long, ling time before we got off the skid and hit a few,” Stamford coach Lonnie Nickerson said. “It was really fast-paced and good to watch.”

Hoyt made nine field goals, one of them a 3-pointer, and went 4-for-6 from the line. She also pulled in 13 rebounds and notched three blocks.

She was joined in double figures by Leanna McAuliffe, who hit a pair of triples to finish with 12 points. She also had seven rebounds, six assists and three steals.

McKenzie Clough paced Walton with 16 points. Jacqlyn Gransbury had eight and Grace Rhinehart totaled six for the Warriors.

Stamford (8-0) will open Delaware League play at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8, with a visit to Downsville.

Gilbertsville-Mount Upton 41

Alyssa Nowhitney scored 12 of her game-high 18 points in the third quarter to help host Franklin pull away from Gilbertsville-Mount Upton in Tri-Valley League play.

The Purple Devils took a 30-18 lead into halftime before a 22-8 run in the third quarter more than doubled the deficit.

“I think that’s a new personal high for her. She came up big for us,” Franklin coach Mike Dutcher said of Nowhitney. “We really looked at how we could make some adjustments to their zone, and she was able to find gaps and get some quality looks inside.”

Two Purple Devils produced double-doubles. Kayla Campbell scored 15 points and dished out 10 assists, while sister Marissa Campbell scored 13 and pulled in 11 rebounds.

Maddy Ackley scored six points and had seven steals for Franklin, which recorded an assist on 18 of their 26 field goals.

“I thought we played a pretty good, balanced game. We shared the ball really well,” Dutcher said.

Ashlyn Marron scored 12 points to lead G-MU, followed by 11 points from Hannah Bonczkowski.

Franklin (5-1, 3-0) will host Worcester at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8.
