Huge rally boosts MCS girls to tourney win

By John Bernhardt
The 2011 Margaretville Booster Club Girls’ Varsity Basketball Tournament had everything a basketball fan could want and more. The tournament was packed with excitement, each game decided in the final seconds of play.

Close and competitive with sudden momentum shifts, the basketball action was emotion-packed and the host team emerged as the champion with a thrilling comeback, 42-40 victory over Gilboa on Saturday.

Gilboa nips Blue Devils in hoops opener

It was addition by subtraction last Thursday as the Gilboa and Margaretville boys’ basketball teams squared off in its season opener in Margaretville.

Foul troubles plagued the top scorers of both teams throughout the contest with Gilboa’s Tyler Latta and Margaretville’s Mitch Hull spending large chunks of time on the bench with fouls. With each departure came an offensive surge for the opposing team giving the game a see-saw like personality. Latta outlasted Hull, and the Wildcats outlasted the Blue Devils, 44-41, by scoring the final nine points of the game.

Slow start hurts MCS girls in loss to Wildcats

It was almost like the world moved in slow motion for the Margaretville girls’ basketball team during the first 10 minutes of last week’s Delaware League contest in Gilboa. The Blue Devils struggled to get their game untracked, were badly beaten off the backboards and couldn’t get a shot to drop.

Using an 11-0 rebounding advantage, Gilboa ran off the first 14 points of the contest.
Once they broke the ice, the Blue Devils were off and running. Margaretville went on a 10-2 spurt chopping away a huge chunk of Gilboa’s lead by the half.

First impressions count. How hard and how fast a basketball team gets out of the gate sets the tone and establishes a persona that can define a team.

With little more than a preview of what their teams can do, the area girls’ basketball coaches are excited about moving forward and anxious to see the round ball script unfold. All three hardwood mentors; Susie Little of Andes, Kyle Holden of Margaretville and Lisa Faraci of Roxbury are impressed with the focus and positive energy their squads have brought to the preseason.

“A good soccer player plays where the ball is. A great soccer player plays where the ball is going to be.”

Cherry Valley put that soccer maxim to the test on Saturday in Oneonta as the Patriots downed Margaretville, 3-0, to become Section IV, Class D champions. It was almost as if Cherry Valley used a built in soccer radar tracking system to trail the flight of the ball. The Patriots were everywhere.

MCS Blue Devils advance to sectional semi-finals

For all but one of the Southern Delaware County soccer teams, postseason play was “The Great Vanishing Act of 2011.”

The lose-and-go home finality of the Section IV playoffs seemed to shrink the size of the goals to the point where it was impossible to score. The Roxbury boys’ and girls’ teams and the Margaretville girls failed to score a single regulation time goal between them as each disappeared from the playoffs after opening round play. Only the Margaretville boys remain in action.
