Anika Buzzy and Ava Eichler combined for 39 points as Oneonta downed state-ranked Norwich, 67-45, on the road in Southern Tier Athletic Conference girls basketball Wednesday, Jan. 15.

Oneonta coach Matt Miller said it was the first time in five years his team defeated the 11th-ranked Purple Tornado, which missed key players in Halea Eaton and Abby Flynn.

“It’s something the girls enjoyed and a great moment for the program right now,” Miller said. “I didn’t expect this going in. Norwich is notorious for players going down and others stepping up, so I still feel like they are one of the better teams in Section IV Class B.”

The Yellowjackets took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter before running away with the game courtesy of a 25-5 run in the final frame. Eichler had 10 in the fourth, while Buzzy had seven with Macky Catan and Ang McGraw each contributing four.

Eichler finished with nine field goals, four of them from long range, to lead all scorers with 22 points.

Buzzy had six field goals and was 5-for-5 from the foul line to for 17 points. Miller complimented her rebounding and distribution from the high post as she totaled four assists along with her 17 points.

McGraw finished with 12 points on six field goals, Yuliah Johnson had nine and Catan totaled six.

Margaret Dougher led Norwich with 19 points, making four of her seven field goals from beyond the arc.

The win gives OHS two straight after dropping the first game of the new year.

“This was a good bounce back,” Miller said. “We just felt like we weren’t doing some of the things we were doing earlier in the year. We got back to transition, and we took care of the basketball.”

Oneonta (9-1, 4-1) will visit Chenango Forks at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16.

Davenport 44, Margaretville 38

Davenport held on to beat fellow Delaware League foe Margaretville.

The Wildcats started strong with a 19-point opening quarter and 10 points in the second, but netted just 12 points in the second half.

The Blue Devils potted 16 points in the final 16 minutes after falling behind, 29-22, at halftime.

Jenna Lubbers led all players with 24 points on 10 field goals and a 3-for-6 clip on free throws for Davenport.

Arianna Gonsalves deposited seven points for the Wildcats and Jessica Zuill had six points on a pair of 3-pointers.

Zuill (two), Lubbers (one) and Cassie Pierce (one) compiled Davenport’s four long balls.

Lubbers grabbed 12 rebounds as well for the double-double and Gonsalves tallied 10 boards.

Margaretville got a team-high 16 points from Antonia Falco, who hit six field goals and went 2-for-7 from the foul line.

Netalia Herrera followed with nine points and Kansas Shamro had seven for the Blue Devils.

Margaretville also finished with four 3-pointers as Paige Credaroli (one), Alivia Cordero (one) and Falco (two) hit its shots from long range.

Downsville 46, Roxbury 13

Kailee Young’s 18 points on eight field goals helped Downsville sink visiting Roxbury in the DL.

Olivia Brunner recorded a double-double as well, totaling 10 points and pulling down 15 rebounds while McKenzy Brown drained the Eagles’ two 3-pointers.

Downsville jumped out to a 13-2 lead in the first quarter and outscored Roxbury in each quarter thereafter on its way to a 33-point home victory.

“I think that we came out and played hard defensively,” Eagles coach Dustin Keesler said. “Defensively we were strong.”

Erin Garza scored the most points for the Rockets, earning eight points on three field goals. Roxbury only took six free throws, making 50% of those opportunities, and did not hit any 3-pointers.

Downsville (6-2, 3-0) will visit South Kortright at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17.

Hunter-Tannersville 56, Gilboa 46
