Devils earn DCS Tourney crown

By John Bernhardt
The Margaretville Blue Devils knew Roscoe guards Rob Taurino and Marc Rosario could wheel and deal in the open court. Taurino and Rosario had teamed with the five Blue Devil starters as part of a Margaretville AAU team last spring.

The Blue Devils reveled then when Taurino went on a “crazy” scoring run or Rosario pulled a rebound off the defensive boards and went coast to coast for a lay-up. But, Saturday in Downsville, the Blue Devils found themselves plotting to find a way to slow down Roscoe’s offensive duo.

Senior Raeann Bond had a hand in a dozen Blue Devil second-half points to help Margaretville come from behind to topple Roxbury, 35-28, in a game played in Roxbury on Friday.
Bond helped her team erase a four-point deficit, scoring all six of her points in the third quarter, then dished out assists that resulted in six more Blue Devil points as Margaretville pulled away down the homestretch.

The Mountain Division tightened in Delaware League boys’ basketball when Roxbury split two contests as South Kortright and Gilboa crept closer to the first-place Rockets. Heading into last night’s action, Roxbury was atop the standings at 4-2 with SK and Gilboa a whisker behind at 4-3. Roxbury hosted South Kortright last night but the results of that key match-up could not be received before the Catskill Mountain News publishing deadline.

It was table-setting time Saturday for the Roxbury girls’ basketball team as the Rockets defeated Laurens, 47-24, in the consolation game of the Stamford Tournament.

promising sign for Roxbury has to the offensive output of senior guard Kennedy Faraci. Faraci scored a career-high 26 points against Laurens on Saturday to follow up a 24-point effort in the tournament’s opening round over the holiday break. Faraci netted three, three-point goals and went five for seven from the free throw line to help topple Laurens.

Looking for their second tournament championship of the young season, the Margaretville boys’ basketball team blew by Gilbertsville- Mount Upton, 49-15, in the opening round of the Downsville Tournament on Friday.

The Blue Devils, who won the MCS Booster Club Tournament earlier in the month, will play Roscoe for the championship at a date and time that has not yet been determined. Saturday’s snowstorm knocked out consolation and championship action scheduled for Saturday.


Delaware League basketball races taking shape

The winter of 2005-2006 was the last time the South Kortright boys’ basketball team didn’t win the Delaware League Mountain Division title. That winter, Andes edged Downsville to win the Delaware League crown in a four-team race that included Roxbury and SK. The Mountaineers suffered three DL losses, but balance across the league helped Andes win enough games to reach in the league Crossover Championship for the first time in school history.
