OXFORD – After a setback against the Greene Lady Trojans last Wednesday, Oxford got back into the winning column by defeating the Edmeston Panthers in a close 59-54 Monday night non-league battle.
Three players on the Oxford squad came away with double-doubles and four finished with double digits in the scoring column.
Jada Albin tallied 11 points and 10 rebounds while Karley Miller ended the night with 10 points and a game-high 15 boards for the Blackhawks. Olivia Kelsey also chipped in with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
The Lady Blackhawks jumped out to a seven point lead after the first eight minutes of play behind six different players registering in the score book.
However, in the next stanza, Madison Bolton and the visiting Panthers responded by outscoring Oxford 18-16 to cut the lead to five at the half time break. Bolton paced Edmeston with 12 points in the first half to keep her team close before the intermission.
On the opposite side, Oxford’s Madalyn Barrows tallied 10 of her team-high 16 points in the first two quarters of play while teammate Miller aided with eight points.
Out of the locker room for the second half, the Blackhawks pushed the lead to a 13-point margin as the home team went on a 22-14 run with one quarter remaining.
Edmeston didn’t go away easy, going on a 15-point spurt in the final eight minutes and cut the deficit to just three points with less than two minutes left in the contest.
Still a three point game with 25 seconds left, Oxford’s head coach Chris Palmer called a timeout. Out of the break, Oxford added two more points to extend the lead to five and the victory.
Bolton scored a game-high 23 points in the loss for Edmeston. Colleague Maria Williams added 10 points while Logan Lund chipped in eight.
