Joe Kelly scored with 14 seconds left in regulation for Richfield Springs, which earned a 1-1 Tri-Valley League boys soccer tie at Milford on Thursday.

“There was a handball in the middle of the field and a kid came up and played it quickly into the box,” Milford coach Frank Spurchise said of Shawn Miller, who earned the assist. “We misplayed it and Kelly was there to put it in.”

Kelly’s goal offset one by Peyton Griffiths, who gave Milford the lead with roughly 15 minutes to play in the opening half. Brian Atwell ran down a ball headed out of bounds and played it back across the goalmouth. Griffiths then one-timed the pass into the goal.

Ben Smith made 16 saves for the Indians. Counterpart Parker Fish stopped four shots for Milford (7-4-2, 6-3-2), which will celebrate Senior Appreciation Day on Monday against visiting Worcester. Fish, Elijah Coley, Jordan Colone and Spencer O’Bryan will be recognized as Milford’s outgoing seniors.

Mike Silicado, Cameron Hill, Josh Rutherford and Levi Decker scored for Morris in its Tri-Valley League road win.
