Natalie Vanderlaan-Meyering had 10 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocks to lead Oneonta High's girls to a 51-34 Southern Tier Athletic Conference basketball victory at Chenango Valley on Wednesday.

"She's been a beast the last two games," OHS coach Matt Miller said of the 6-foot-2 Vanderlaan-Meyering, who had eight points and eight blocks in Oneonta's 35-27 win over Norwich on Monday that clinched the Yellowjackets' fourth STAC division title in the last five seasons. "She's really taken over in the middle for us defensively. She's playing with an assertiveness that was not there in the early part of the year. She's taken us to a different level defensively."

After the teams played to a 13-13 standoff the first quarter, OHS outscored the Warriors, 33-13, over the middle quarters.

"We started out pretty rough," Miller said. "They started in a press and it took us a quarter to get used to it. In the third quarter, we got a lot of stuff in transition by beating their press, but it bothered us for a quarter."

Hayley Dower and Kelsey Baker had eight points apiece, and Mariah Ruff and Sierra Sangetti-Daniels and Diandra Sangetti-Daniels all had six points for the Yellowjackets (13-3, 11-1).

East Division champion OHS will travel to West Division winner Horseheads on Tuesday for a STAC semifinal. The same teams met in a STAC semifinal last season, with the Yellowjackets earning a 49-47 win.

"They did lose some of their better players, but they're still a great team," Miller said of Horseheads. "They play a lot of girls and they're ranked 12th in the state in Class AA. Their only two losses are to Binghamton, which is ranked second in the state. They're quick and athletic. We're going to have to play an error-free game."

Owego and Binghamton will meet in the other semifinal. The championship game is Saturday night at Binghamton University's Events Center.

Down, 22-8, at halftime, Sidney pulled to 32-29 on a three-pointer by Kelsey Decker with about 5 1/2 minutes left. But Sidney would score one more basket and Kaitlin Gorton and Shannon Gregory each hit both ends of 1-and-1s over the final two minutes to seal it.

Decker finished with seven points. Meridith Delello returned to the lineup after missing three weeks with an ankle sprain and shared team-high scoring honors for Sidney with Brianna McClenon. Both had eight points.
