It was a remarkable championship encounter, a masterpiece of a basketball game, a contest staged between two worthy opponents, a game contested like every championship match should be played. The environment was electric with large and passionate crowds totally involved in the game representing both combatants. In the end, just about everything in New York State’s Class D Girls’ Basketball Championship game was perfect. That is, except the final score, Heuvelton 61, South Kortright 54.

“A teacher affects eternity; she/he can never tell where his influence stops.” — Henry Adams
For me, coaching has always been teaching and the basketball court or the baseball diamond captivating classrooms. And, in most cases, no matter how hard you prepare or how much passion you apply to your craft, you’re never really certain of the influence of your work. That’s because the lessons taught and learned are sometimes actualized and appreciated long after the student or athlete is no longer part of your circle.

SK boys' club falls in sectionals finals' heartbreaker

in

John Bernhardt
Time stood still Saturday night at SUNY Oneonta. With precious seconds melting off the clock, the game on the line, and just 12 seconds left to play, South Kortright’s Griff Metzko did what he does so well; he took the ball to the basket.
GAME CHANGER — Griff Metzko of South Kortright puts up what appears to be a game-tying shot with 7.7 seconds left in Saturday’s Section 4, Class D Tournament finals at Oneonta State. The ball went in, but Metzko was whistled for a charging foul and the hoop didn’t count. Drawing the charge for Laurens was Anthony Monaco (32). Looking on for SK is Brandon Porter (11). The Leopards would add a free throw after an intentional foul by the Rams, but Metzko’s three-point attempt at the buzzer went off the rim and Laurens captured the championship, 47-44. — Photos by Dick SanfordGAME CHANGER — Griff Metzko of South Kortright puts up what appears to be a game-tying shot with 7.7 seconds left in Saturday’s Section 4, Class D Tournament finals at Oneonta State.

RCS girls reach quarterfinals but fall to Southern Cayuga

in

by John Bernhardt
Until the closing seconds of the third period Friday, it looked like the Roxbury girls’ basketball team had a shot at extending their magical basketball campaign to reach the Section IV Class D semifinals. With 17 seconds remaining, the Rockets were giving Southern Cayuga all they could handle. The Chiefs, an Interscholastic Athletic Conference team, were clinging to a 33-32 lead as the game moved toward the final period.

The Rockets advanced with a 51-42 win, but had their season end on Friday when they fell to Southern Cayuga. — Photos by Dick SanfordTOUGH SPOT — Roxbury’s Stacey Sprague is surrounded by Edmeston defenders during last Tuesday’s sectional opener at RCS.

MCS falls to defending champion Davenport in sectional opening round

in

By John Bernhardt
In Davenport last Wednesday, the Margaretville Blue Devils boys’ basketball team drew a gritty seasoned opponent in the opening round of the Section IV, Class D Tournament. The Wildcats, defending Class D champions, 16-2, were the number five seed of a talent-packed tourney. In the end, Davenport’s resilience proved too much for the Blue Devils, a third period run lifting the Wildcats past Margaretville, 64-50, to advance to the quarterfinal round.
