Jefferson downed Davenport, 71-61, in the third-place game of the Delaware League playoffs at Davenport Thursday, Feb. 13.

Cole Lapinel’s 32 points on 14 field goals led all scorers while Damien Merwin managed 17 points on seven field goals, including three buckets from beyond the arc, for the J-Hawks.

Lapinel also buried two 3-pointers for the J-Hawks.

“Lapinel just killed us in the second half,” Davenport coach Michael Ballard said. “We played right until the end, so I’m proud of my guys for that.”

Jefferson established a 20-12 lead in the first quarter and held on for the 10-point victory.

Dylan Waid was Davenport’s top scorer, pouring in 24 points on six field goals, went 10-for-13 from the free-throw line and hit two 3-pointers.

Warren Quigley also scored 14 points on six field goals for the Wildcats and drained two baskets from long range.

Margaretville 58,

Roxbury 45

A 25-point first quarter was the difference in Margaretville’s win over visting Roxbury in the second round of the Delaware League playoffs.

The Blue Devils only allowed four points in that frame which gave them a healthy advantage the rest of the game.

“The first quarter we probably played the best quarter of the year,” Margaretville coach John Bernhardt said. “We moved the ball exceptionally well.”

Mike Gavette scored eight of his team-leading 14 points in the first quarter for the Blue Devils while Connor Joedicke (eight points) assisted on four of Margaretville’s first five baskets.

The Rockets fought back in the second quarter with 19 points to the Blue Devils’ 10, but Margaretville outscored the visitors 23-22 in the second half to hold on to the victory.

Willie Cano helped the Blue Devils seal the win as he scored all eight of his points in the fourth quarter. Cano also contributed six assists.

Trent Faulkner-Squires led Roxbury with 15 points while Peyton Proctor was next with 13 points.

Margaretville (11-7) awaits their seed for the section tournament which begins Tuesday, Feb. 25.

The Wildcats put up strong first and fourth quarters while the Eagles outscored the hosts in the middle two frames.

Michael O’Hara had a game-high 17 points for Gilboa on three field goals and a 10-for-12 mark on free throws.

Robert Rion and Malachy Renz also each piled in 10 points for the Wildcats.

Downsville’s trio of Logan Cicio, Steven Gummoe and Nate Valentine combined for 43 of its 47 total points.
