    The fifth-ranked Herkimer County Community College Generals bounced back from their first loss of the season with a 77-35 blowout victory at home against Broome Community College Thursday.
    The Generals (5-1) opened a double-digit lead with a 12-0 run early in the first half and led 42-12 at halftime. They opened the second half with 15 straight points and led by as many as 46 in their most lopsided victory of the young season.
    “The biggest thing today for us was having all 15 guys work hard,” Herkimer coach Matt Lee said. “All 15 of them contributed in a positive way and this helps us develop that team chemistry.”
    Broome (1-5) has been outscored by an average of 23.5 points in their first six games.
    Jonathan Feiler drove for a basket to put the Generals up 10-6 and started their first double-digit run. Jerome Floyd followed with a three-pointer then had a steal and a layup. Todd Hunt’s three-pointer prompted Broome to call its first timeout before Johnnie Davis put Herkimer up 20-6 with a breakaway layup.
    Herkimer added a 15-0 run before halftime. That run  included three of the team’s season-high 11 three-point baskets and left them with a 35-9 edge on the scoreboard. The first half ended with seven straight Herkimer points, a run that reached 22 in a row at 57-12 when Feiler put back an offensive rebound fur minutes into the second half.
    Davis led Herkimer with 13 points off the bench as 14 of the 15 Generals who suited up for the game scored. Floyd and Feiler scored 10 points each, Mike Thomas added nine and Demetrius Mitchell had eight.
    On the negative side, the Generals shot 6-for-16 at the foul line, the second straight game they have been below 50 percent. Herkimer is 26-for-58 from the line — 44.8 percent — over the last three games.
    Lloyd Saunders scored 13 points in the second half and led Broome with 16. Ryan McMurray had Broome’s first six points and finished the game with eight.
    Herkimer plays at home again Saturday afternoon against North Country Community College.
