Kyle Moorby, Cody Wamsley and Paul Clark scored two goals apiece, and host Davenport cruised to a surprisingly lopsided, 6-0 boys soccer victory over South Kortright in the championship game of the Chic Walshe Tournament on Saturday.
“We did,” Davenport coach Deb Moorby said when asked if her team played as well as the score indicates. “It was an intense game the whole time. There were moments when we went back and forth, but the kids had good passes and throughballs, and they capitalized on them.”
Davenport’s Chris Kopf made seven saves and was the named the tournament’s MVP.
Kyle Moorby opened the scoring 18:55 into play. He headed in a throw-in from Travis Briggs.
“Right into the 6,” Moorby said of Briggs’ throw-in. “Kyle was right there and headed it in. He was right next to the goalie, almost on the goal line.”
Wamsley finished a crossing pass from Michael Libby to make it 2-0 and the Wildcats’ lead expanded to three when Clark scored of a pass from Josh Wood 1:55 before halftime.
Briggs, who had four assists, Wamsley and Moorby made the all-tournament team for Daveport. Dan Nelson, Ryan Sluiter and Dan Fronckowiak were all tournament selections for the Rams.
Davenport (10-1) will travel to Hunter-Tannersville on Thursday.
Cooperstown 5, Worcester 0
Cooperstown’s Park Summers converted a give-and-go from Jordan Manikas to open the scoring 1:31 into the consolation game of the Chic Walshe Tournament at Davenport.
Manikas followed with three goals and Max Clinton scored another for Cooperstown (5-3), which also got three assists from Summers. Manikas and Summers earned all-tournament honors.
Sweeper David Zoltick helped preserve the shutout for goalie Kevin Frevele (three saves) with a header for a defensive save eight seconds before halftime.
“Kevin got caught out of the box, but David dropped into the goal and headed out a sure goal,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said. “David is a solid defender with great game instincts.”
