Newfield will look to continue a suprising start to its 2012-13 campaign when it headlines Tuesday’s Interscholastic Athletic Conference boys basketball schedule with a trip to Watkins Glen.

The Trojans, who won four games last season, could improve to 3-0 with a victory against the host Indians, who lost at Spencer-Van Etten this past Friday in their season opener while Newfield rolled past visiting Candor, 71-39, behind 16 points from senior Zach Mosher and 14 points from junior Chris Byrd.

IAC Small South division foe Odessa-Montour could also be looking at a 3-0 start when it hosts Edison. The Indians are coming off a 47-36 victory at Waverly on Friday sparked by point guard Morgan Shutter’s 18 points and

6-foot-6 center Tom Peckham’s 14 points.

With undefeated Lansing on bye, the big match up in the Large North division sees Moravia travel to Dryden.

The Blue Devils got 18 points from Dylan Powers to claim a season-opening 65-33 victory against visiting Union Springs on Friday, while on the same night the Lions suffered their first loss of the season, a 57-48 home loss to the Bobcats.

Other games include Marathon at Southern Cayuga, Groton at Trumansburg, Whitnet Point at Union Springs, Spencer-Van Etten at Newark Valley, Tioga at Notre Dame and Waverly at Candor.

* GIRLS: Trumansburg will look to make it two wins in a row when it travels to undefeated Groton as one of nine games on Tuesday’s IAC schedule.

The Blue Raiders suffered a 42-32 loss to Union Springs in its season opener but on Friday bounced back with a 39-38 home victory against Marathon secured by Janelle Stewart’s 3-pointer with 15 seconds remaining.

The Indians will be looking for a 3-0 start after claiming victories against Dryden (48-19) and Southern Cayuga (53-42) to open its season, while Newfield will host Watkins Glen after claiming its second win of the campaign at Candor on Friday.
