Wainright started the scoring six minutes after halftime, converting a throughball from Clayton Lyon to spark a 4-0 run for Edmeston (10-3, 9-3). Wainright made it 2-0 five minutes later, after running onto a pass over the defense from Eli Madison.
Jordan Ruffles and Nate Wetherbee contributed unassisted goals for the Panthers, who received three saves from Logan Vibbard and none from Nick DeVries in the combined shutout.
Edmeston closes its regular season Monday at Franklin.
Plows said Edmeston, which won back-to-back T-V crowns in 2003 and 2004, will play Milford or Cherry Valley-Springfield in the T-V final Oct. 19 at the Wright National Soccer Campus. Edmeston lost to both teams, 2-0, during the regular season.
JC 2, Oneonta 1
Paul Bischoff converted a pass from Peter Paluch in the first half, but Oneonta High suffered a Southern Tier Athletic Conference road loss.
“They scored 25 seconds into the game,” said OHS coach Alex Brannan, whose team gave up a quick goal to Haris Brkovic. “We just weren’t ready. We had the ball and we gave it away. The ball didn’t go where it was supposed to go.”
Brkovic put Johnson City ahead, 2-0, eight minutes into the match. Bischoff cut the OHS deficit to 2-1 by heading in a pass from Paluch three minutes ahead of halftime.
JC avenged a 2-1 setback against Oneonta earlier this season.
Despite Friday’s loss, the Yellowjackets (10-3, 10-3) are still headed to the STAC playoffs. Brannan said his team, which already had clinched the STAC’s East Division, will be on the road for a STAC semifinal Tuesday at a time and site to be determined.
According to standings posted on the STAC’s website, stac.digitalsports.com, the other STAC semifinalists are Central Division champion Susquehanna Valley (11-1-1), Metro Division winner Vestal (9-3-1) and West Division champ Corning (12-2). Brannan said OHS likely will visit Corning on Tuesday, when SV will travel to Vestal.
