O-State women tie Cortland; men win

Staff Report

Goalie Rori Stark made five saves Friday as Oneonta State played visiting Cortland to a scoreless tie in the SUNY Athletic Conference women’s soccer opener for both teams.

Following the double-overtime deadlock, Cortland (2-3-3) won a penalty-kick shootout, 5-4. The shootout served only as a tiebreaker for home-field advantage for the SUNYAC Tournament should the teams tie during the regular season.

O-State (3-3-1) had its best chance to score in the 76th minute, but Cortland goalie Rachel Axt (10 saves) turned away a header by Amanda Regensburger. Kayla Ceschini also sent a header over the crossbar.

Stark stopped a shot by Amanda Margolis with 23 seconds left to set up the extra periods.

Oneonta, which finished with a 14-11 advantage in shots, hosts Oswego at 1 p.m. Saturday.

MEN’S SOCCER

O-State 3, Cortland 0

Luke Halberg, Dylan Williams and Tyler Kirschner scored for Oneonta, which opened its SUNYAC schedule with a road victory.

Justin Rivera contributed two assists and Jake Sutherland had one for O-State (5-2-2), which received one save from Vincent Pellegrino in the shutout.

Tim Beauvais made 10 saves for Cortland (3-5).

“The team is starting to jell and we moved the ball throughout the game,” O-State coach Iain Byrne said. “We were a constant threat to score.”

Halberg gave Oneonta a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute, when he converted a 2-on-1 after a Cortland turnover with a shot inside the left post. Williams made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute, one-timing a pass from Rivera for a 20-yard shot that went in off a defender.

Kirschner’s capped the scoring in the 78th minute, scoring on a shot from the left side to the top-right corner.

Oneonta visits Oswego at 1 p.m. Saturday.
