HERKIMER, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – After an early season league loss to Dolgeville, Herkimer knew that they got another chance to take down the Center State Conference competition later in the year, and that day came on Thursday.

The Magicians took full advantage of that opportunity, rallying back from a 1-point halftime deficit to avenge their loss and move to 8-6 overall on the year led by 24 points, 19 in the second half, from Madison Marusic. Bailey Bray was also in double figures for Herkimer with 13. Kerisa Van Olst was the leader for the Blue Devils, scoring their first three field goals of the game on her way to a 19-point performance.
