The Local Recap
Taking a look at the last few days of local sporting events
2023 has arrived with a purpose. It has been only a couple of weeks, but it feels like so much has already happened. And there has been no exception for our local high school teams. So as we close out the second week of the new year, here is how some of our regional teams have favored in the last few days. Oneida falls to 2-6
It hasn’t been the greatest start to the year for Oneida. The Blue and Orange are currently on a 3 game-losing streak. Their first game of the new year was against Holland Patent, where they had a mixed bag on the offensive side. Austin Degroat netted 20 points for Oneida, but HP got the last laugh with a 70-51 win. And in their latest game on Friday, Oneida faced another formidable opponent in the form of New Hartford. A difficult first half led to Oneida dropping the game 40-60. Gavin Stone scored 11 for Oneida, while Jamison Stockwell hit 4 3-PT shots to lead NH and his teammate Zach Philipkoski secured a double-double. However, Oneida is looking to bounce back when they face off against Utica-notre Dame on the 10th.
Madison just keeps on winning
The Blue Devils have always been a force to be reckoned with in the CCL. And this year looks to be the same as Madison now sits with a 9-1 record and an 8-game winning streak. Their Wednesday game against Mcgraw proved challenging, but Madison pulled through with a 60-53 win over the Eagles. The three-headed monster unit of Ethan Rivers, Anthony Dodge, and Jacob Burns continues to impress. Rivers had 14 PTS and 5 REB. Burns netted 13, and Anthony Dodge had 13 PTS with 16 REB. Madison looks to continue their streak with a matchup against Morrisville-eaton. More Local Scores Wed-fri
