Rosie Cunningham/The Reporter DELAWARE LEAGUE - The Stamford boys will face-off against South Kortright Friday at 7:30 p.m. at SUNY Delhi. This will be the third consecutive year the two teams will meet in the crossover game.

This is a repeat for the two rivals who competed last year for the overall Delaware League Title.

Senior guard Colby Fancher had 18 points and teammate Steve Anderson had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Indians to a 68-49 victory over Charlotte Valley Friday which earned them the spot in the title game.

Ryan Finne scored 16 points for CV, which trailed at halftime, 35-20.

Stamford’s Brent Ogborn had 13 points and teammate Keyshawn Scott had 12 points in the victory.

“It feels great to make the league crossovers for the third year in a row especially since a SCS boys team had about a 32 or 33 year absence from the championship game,” said Stamford Coach Greg O’Connell. “We’re very excited to get this far, it’s certainly one of our goals at the start of any season. We’re looking forward to the game.”

Rosie Cunningham/The Reporter “It’s always fun to play against SK because playing a team like that always makes you play the best of your ability,” said Fancher, who is looking forward to Friday.

Tyler Lamport led the Rams to a 76-48 victory with 31 points Friday against Roxbury. Teammate Brandon Porter scored 14, making four three-pointers.

Arie Brunson scored eight points for the Rams, who led at halftime, 41-23. Ryan Howell and Isaac Walker scored 12 and 10 points respectively for Roxbury.

“It was nice to walk away with the win,” said Lamport. “They played well and gave us a bit of a run. Going into the game Friday, we look to be ready as a team and hope to play our game. We always like to play Stamford, there’s a lot of energy and it’s a lot of fun.”

“I thought we played well in spurts,” said SK Coach Bob Van- Valkenburgh. “Ty had another very good game and Brandon Porter was hot from the outside. As a team, I thought we played good overall. I also thought that Roxbury, regardless of score, played a hard fought game - they never gave up.”

VanValkenburgh said he is looking forward to going to crossovers against the Indians.

“Stamford is always good competition,” he said. “I expect this game to be much tighter than our league game and should be exciting.”
