The Daily Star

---- — Staff Report

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

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.”

Greene Tournament

Antonio Gomes scored twice and Downsville held Gilbertsville-Mount Upton to two shots en route to a 2-0 victory in the consolation game of the Greene Tournament on Saturday.

Gomes opened the scoring midway through the first half. He received a throughball from Billy Smith and scored on a low shot to the left corner.

Chance Byington sent a throughball to Gomes in the second half, and Downsville’s speedy forward finished it with about 20 minutes left.

Kyle Short ended the game three minutes into overtime with a goal off a pass from Roberto Sarabia as Margaretville remained undefeated with a non-league victory at the Wright National Soccer Campus in Oneonta.

“They intercepted a pass and Sarabia laid it off to Short and boom, it was over,” said Milford coach Frank Spurchise, whose team fought off 12 corner kicks by the Blue Devils (9-0). “They’re a very good team, as always. The bottom line is they’re a skilled team that passes very well and they know where each other is on the field.”

Victor Mendoza assisted Sarabia on the opening goal, a 10-yarder to the far post with 12 minutes left in the first half. Peyton Griffiths tied it for Milford (7-2) with 1:30 to go before halftime, converting a pass from Eli Rutledge at close range.

“The second half was kind of back-and-forth at times,” Spurchise said. “They have a lot of players and it did work to their advantage because they wore us down a little bit. Having a bench like that, they were subbing in four to five guys at a time. That’s a huge benefit.

“They beat Davenport, so they’re the team to beat in our section,” he continued. “You’ve got to give them the edge.”

Marvin Morales made five saves for the Blue Devils, who held a 9-6 advantage in shots.

Max Lang stopped seven shots for the Wildcats, who visit Richfield Springs on Tuesday.
