in

By John Bernhardt
There are few places that Kyle Holden would rather be than on a basketball court. The Margaretville girls’ varsity coach relishes the time he gets to teach basketball every season. But, this winter Holden’s Blue Devils have elevated his enjoyment of teaching the game to new levels.
“It’s just a pleasure coaching these girls,” Holden said when talking about his team. “I really like this group. It’s tough to describe how much fun it’s been working with these kids.”

EIGHT-POINTER — Tom Felter took this nice eight-point buck on November 5 while hunting with a crossbow in Ulster County. Tom said he shot the buck at 21 yards and that its antlers had an inside spread of 16 inches and nine-and-a-half-inch top tines. Tom is the son of Ralph Felter of Kelly Corners.

When asked during an interview prior to Saturday’s New York State Boys’ Class D Regional Championship game if he knew anything about his opponents, South Kortright Coach Bob VanValkenburgh didn’t hes­itate. VanValkenburgh reported Copenhagen has a big kid who played in the middle of the field who he was told was special.

Whatever team wins the Section III, Class D soccer championship, Copenhagen or Sackets Harbor, has got to be hoping this Saturday’s New York State, Class D boys soccer qualifier doesn’t go into double-overtime.


South Korthright girls fall finally to Delhi in "shootout"

in

Officially, the game goes down as a tie. After last week’s Section IV, Class D, girls’ soccer semifinal ended in a 1-1 tie, South Kortright and Delhi went to overtime. Twenty minutes and two overtimes later the game was ruled a tie, but a shootout would determine which team would advance to the sectional finals.
OVER THE TOP — South Kortright players Brianna Laing (9) and Sam Acuna (5) move to the goal as Acuna sends a header wide of the nets. The shot would have won the game in the closing seconds of the contest. Poised for action are Delhi goalkeeper Kaitlynn Finch and Julia Burns (21). Delhi was a 3-2 shootout winner in last Tuesday’s sectional semifinal match.
