“We’ll take it,” Garretson said of the tie.
The Patriots (4-1-1, 3-1-1), who held a 13-7 advantage in shots, will travel to Laurens on Friday.
Oneonta 14, Norwich 0
Taryn More scored 24 seconds into play off an assist from Abby Picinich and host Oneonta High encountered little resistance during a Southern Tier Athletic Conference victory.
“We’re in two entirely different positions as programs,” OHS coach Jerry Mackey said of the lopsided outcome.
Ten players scored for the 5-0 Yellowjackets. Taylor Hitchcock scored three goals, More and Mariah Ruff had two goals apiece, and Kendall Gillette, Brieanna Baker, Nicole Harmer, Picinich, Madison Miller, Mallory Herrick and Rachel Brown also scored.
Things figure to get considerably more difficult for the Yellowjackets over their next two games. They’ll host Susquehanna Valley today and then host Seton Catholic Central on Tuesday.
SV earned a 4-2 win over SCC earlier this season. The Saints lost to the Yellowjackets in the last two Section Four Class B finals, 3-0, two years ago and then 4-0 in overtime last season.
“It could be a big step up for us,” Mackey said of playing the Sabers and Saints. “They’re two big steps along the way for us. I’m excited for the girls to have the challenge and to see how they play. Can they keep the energy and effort up for 80 minutes? I have some strong feelings how it will turn out. We’ll see if this new group can meet the challenge. We’ll use these next two games as a benchmark to see where we are.”
