MCS boys split hoop contests; Roxbury boys best Jefferson


By John Bernhardt
Like most things in life, basketball seasons have stages.  For the Margaretville Blue Devils boys’ basketball team, the 2014 season began with the preseason stage where they prepared for the upcoming campaign. 
That was followed by a highly successful tournament stage when the Blue Devils won championships in their local Booster Club Tournament and the Downsville Tournament.

Margaretville magic strikes again; Reither beats RCS at the buzzer

By John Bernhardt
Two seconds. Two seconds sometimes makes the difference between victory and defeat. That was the case Thursday night in Roxbury when Cooper Reither’s runner from just inside the foul line bounced one time on the front of the rim and fell through the net, giving Margaretville a tantalizing 38-37 victory over Roxbury.

Andes girls top JCS; Roxbury girls score win at Margaretville


By John Bernhardt
Thursday night’s Andes girls’ basketball game with Jefferson was a litmus test of sorts, an opportunity for the young Mountaineers to gauge just how far they have improved this season. With the Andes crowd on their feet chanting A-C-S during the final minute of play, the Andes girls understood they had passed the test. Andes used an 8-of-13 effort from the foul line in the fourth quarter to edge the JayHawks, 49-43.

Bowler hits high score


Drew Frano of Margaretville stands on lanes 7 and 8 at Margaretville Bowl where he rolled the second honor score of his bowling career, a 299.
On Monday, Jan. 13 in the regular Men’s Organization league, Drew had 11 strikes, then ended with nine pins down on his last ball. The United States Bowling Congress recognizes games of 298, 299 and 300 as honor scores. Drew’s other honor score was a perfect 300 game bowled at Saugerties Bowlers’ Club.

Blue Devils stun Stamford with miraculous rally

By John Bernhardt
They are the Delaware League’s Cardiac Kids, a basketball team associated with nail biting, heart thumping, foot stomping hardwood theatrics. In Margaretville’s six DL contests to date, three have been decided on the game’s last possession, two have gone into overtime, and one took two extra periods of play.

Lady Rockets rock Gilboa for a key Delaware League win

By John Bernhardt
It’s forward progress for the Roxbury girls’ basketball team. The Lady Rockets held Gilboa to a single point in the fourth quarter last week Tuesday, coming from behind to edge the Wildcats 41-39. The victory was significant for the young Roxbury team, propelling the Rockets past the Wildcats into second place in the Delaware League’s Mountain Division.

Roxbury boys are game but fall to leaders in hoop action

Roxbury’s boys’ basketball team took on two stiff challenges last week, going on the road to battle both of the Delaware League’s division leaders. Battling for consistency, a struggle for any young basketball team, the Rockets struggled to piece together four quarters of steady play against the DL leaders, Gilboa and Davenport.
