Tioga County Sports Report
OWEGO — Joe Bangel and Ben Rollison sparked a 21-point burst and the defense kept Chenango Valley under wraps as Owego posted a 55-41 Senior Night victory in STAC Central boys basketball action Friday.

Bangel would go on to record a double-double with 17 points and 16 rebounds.

The Warriors scored just four first-quarter points and another eight in the second period. Meanwhile, Bangel and Rollison scored six points apiece in the second-quarter surge, giving the Indians 32-12 halftime cushion.

“Defense carried us once again,” Owego coach Chris Evans said.”

“The bench brought an intensity that has been unmatched so far this season. Our grit and our energy on Senior Night was fun to watch, especially for basketball junkies who appreciate a tough, physical game.”

Drew Tavelli hit for 14 points, Riley Loomis scored eight, Rollison finished with six, including a 3-pointer, John Bangel tacked on three points and 14 boards, and Lucas Harbol and Kam Wicklund knocked down one trey apiece. Joe Palladino added one point.

“Tavelli and Joe Bangel had big offensive nights while John Bangel and Ryan Pryor were terrors on the boards,” Evans said.

CV’s Michael Doyle drained a trio of threes and led all scorers with 23 points.

Owego recognized several seniors to include the Bangel twins, Harbol, Jack Hoyt, John Larter, Pryor, Aaron Riegel and Tavelli.

Owego (12-3, 8-0) heads to Chenango Forks (12-2, 8-1) Friday for a division showdown with the Blue Devils. The Indians won the first meeting, 57-43, but Forks was not at full strength.
