RSCS Reunion - August 20-22 2010

Sharp-looking Mustangs begin basketball season with three straight wins
by Matthew P. Garrett

WEST WINFIELD — Mount Markham’s boys basketball team improved to 3-0 on the season with an impressive 65-34 rout of defending Center State Conference Division II and Section III champion Cooperstown last Saturday night.

Senior guard Steve Casale scored 13 of his game-high 16 points in the first half for the host Mustangs (1-0, 3-0), who started the second quarter on a 7-0 run to open up a 25-8 lead and never looked back.

Senior center Nick Locorini added 15 points and 12 rebounds in the win, while Anthony Guyer scored all 11 of his points in the first half.

Chris Bush had a team-high 13 points in defeat for the Redskins, who dropped to 0-1 in the league and 1-4 overall.

Mount Markham’s first two victories of the season came against non-league opponents Rome Catholic High in the opener back on Nov. 29 and Edmeston in the first round of its own tip-off tournament Dec. 2.


Richards powers Indians

SAUQUOIT — The Richfield Springs boys basketball team followed up its consolation-game victory in the Brookfield Tournament with a 47-36 win on the road in Sauquoit Valley last Tuesday evening.

Senior center Kyle Richards led the way with a season-high 19 points for the Indians (0-0, 2-2), who actually fell behind 14-0 to begin the game before roaring back to record their second straight win following an 0-2 start to the season.

Senior forward Kevin Cooper contributed 10 points, Marc Barraco and Dave Southard scored seven apiece, while reserve Josh Lupardo chipped in with four points.

Josh Randall had a team-high 16 points in defeat for Sauquoit (0-4), which was outscored 9-3 in the second quarter and 18-10 in the fourth.

“Being down 14-0 early, obviously we were in some trouble right out of the gate,” said Richfield Springs head coach Bill Stevens. “But the kids did a nice job of slowing the pace down and getting the ball inside.”

The Indians’ scheduled Center State Conference Division III opener vs. rival West Canada Valley last Friday was postponed.


Wildcats fall to 0-4

VANHORNSVILLE — Owen D. Young’s boys basketball team continued to struggle early this season with 77-49 and 69-22 losses last week at Schenevus and Rome Catholic, respectively.

In the 28-point defeat last Monday at Section IV’s Schenevus, Alan Hoke scored a team-high 13 points for the Wildcats (0-1, 0-4), while teammate Josh Hess had nine and Jordan Oldick seven.

Josh Burton had a game-high 18 points to lead the way for Schenevus (2-1), while Tom Martin scored 16 and Adam Finger 14.

In the Wildcats’ 47-point defeat the very next day at Rome Catholic in what was their Center State Conference Division IV opener, Hoke scored nine points, Larry Snyder had five, while Oldick and Hess tallied four points apiece.

Steve Smith scored a game-high 15 points for RCH (1-0, 2-2), which led 23-5 after just the first quarter of play.

Owen D. Young’s home opener vs. Oppenheim scheduled for last Friday was postponed.

Patriots postponed

CHERRY VALLEY —Cherry Valley-Springfield’s boys basketball game scheduled for last Friday vs. visiting Schenevus was postponed due to inclement weather. The Tri-Valley League contest will be made up next Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Cherry Valley.
