Hardwood tonight in both boys and girls hoops.
We'll begin with the gentlemen.
Oriskany high school - a c-s-c inter-division match-up between the redskins and holland patent golden knights.
--- to the second in a four point game.
Three-point shot can't connect.
Jeff sobel on the rebound strong to the hoop - fights through contact - can't get the first but gets the second to go and the foul.
The senior pumped up - he gives the knights a 30-24 lead.
--- at the other end - oriskany closing in before the end of the half.
Carl graziadei - drives - banks it in.
It was 31-30 h-p lead at the half.
--- in the third - redskins come out hot.
Aaron warcup off the lead pass goes hard to the rim - triple-teamed - throws up the hook shot and that's good...and one - great play.
We're tied at 33.
--- golden knights go on a bit of a run from there.
Nate healey - in thecorner - go three... ...healey with a big game - he lead the way with 16.
Four players in double digits for the knights as they win 66-55.

The 10-1 new hartford spartans visit the 11-3 v-v-s red devils in a heavyweight battle.

Puts in the runner.
So fluid is the freshman - it's a 33-27 game.

Henderson - great stretch pass to abby buchholz under the hoop for two.
N-h would actually come back to take a one-point lead.
