Double-doubles from Sarah Haight and Sam Maidens helped Davenport clinch its 10th consecutive Delaware League Upper Delaware Division championship as the host Wildcats downed Hunter-Tannersville, 45-35, in a winner-take-all girls basketball game Thursday night.

"It came down to this," Davenport coach Ray Preston said. "We had to earn (the division title) tonight because the winner was going to get it."

Haight and Maidens each had 13 points and 13 rebounds to pace Davenport (10-7, 9-3), which recovered from a 12-10 deficit in the first quarter to complete a regular-season sweep of Hunter-Tannersville.

Sam Maidens hit three three-pointers en route to 12 points for Davenport, which clinched a berth in the Delaware League championship game against undefeated Delaware Mountain Division champion South Kortright (17-0, 14-0).

"It's great for the program," said Preston, who has more than 600 victories in his 33 seasons as Davenport's coach. "You set goals at the beginning of the season, and one of those was to win our half of the league."

Davenport and SK will play for the league crown for the fifth straight season at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 17 at SUNY Delhi. SK has won three of their last four head-to-head battles in league championship games, including the last two in a row.

Molly Constable's nine points paced H-T, which trailed, 25-20, at halftime.
