Oneonta High’s girls rebounded from their lone hiccup this season as Taryn More scored three first-half goals to lead the Yellowjackets to an 8-1 Southern Tier Athletic Conference soccer victory at Johnson City on Monday.
More scored the game’s first two goals. She scored nine minutes into play off an assist from Abby Picinich, who crossed the ball into the penalty box from the left side.
Three minutes later, Picinich sent a back-pass to More, who was tripped in the box by the Wildcats sweeper. More scored on the ensuing penalty kick to make it 2-0.
“We’re really starting to get in sync up front,” said OHS coach Jerry Mackey, whose team tied Seton Catholic Central, 1-1, on Tuesday. “We’re starting to understand who is making which run and when.”
OHS led, 5-0, at halftime.
Mallory Herrick finished with two goals, Picinich had a goal and three assists, Taylor Hitchcock contributed a goal and two assists, and Rachel Brown also scored for the Yellowjackets.
“It’s the first of three games this week and realistically, they’re games we should take care of,” said Mackey, whose team will travel to Windsor today before hosting Chenango Valley on Wednesday.
Davenport 2, Delhi 0
Sierrah McAdams and Effia MacClintock scored second-half goals to lead Davenport to a non-league victory at home.
McAdams opened the scoring on a 12-yard shot after receiving a cross from Emily Whipple midway through the second half. MacClintock finished from 12 yards with 1:41 left off a cross from Sarah Haight.
Kaitlynn Finch made seven saves for the Bulldogs.
The Wildcats (9-2, 5-0) will host Hunter-Tannersville on Thursday.
Worcester 1, Schenevus 1
Cierra Ralph scored on a breakaway with 18 ½ minutes left to tie even score for host Worcester, which earned a tie in the Tri-Valley League.
“It was a breakaway at midfield,” Worcester coach Jim Kenyon said. “She took it on in and when the keeper came out, she changed direction and put in the net with about six girls chasing her.”
