Taylor Hitchcock, Mallory Herrick and Nicole Harmer scored two goals apiece as Oneonta High ran its record to 10-0-1 with a 9-1 Southern Tier Athletic Conference girls soccer victory at Chenango Valley on Tuesday.
The Yellowjackets scored nine goals on 15 shots.
“We shot it pretty well,” Oneonta coach Jerry Mackey said. “They were strong up the middle and had a real good sweeper, so we got good angles and took what the defense was giving us. We had good touches and they were paying so much attention to Taryn (More), Madison (Miller) and Mariah (Ruff), and we ran it off to the correct kids.”
Harmer scored four minutes into play off an assist from Abby Picinich. Three minutes later, Hitchcock made it 2-0.
Brieanna Baker, Rachael Brown and Miller also scored. More contributed three assists.
The Yellowjackets will host Chenango Forks at 7 p.m. Thursday at Lloyd Baker Field for Senior Night. Then they’ll play two Syracuse-area powers on Saturday and Sunday. At 3 p.m. Saturday, the Yellowjackets will play at Cicero North Syracuse before traveling to play Liverpool at 1 p.m. Sunday.
“We’ll get a more accurate picture of where we are,” Mackey said of the weekend games. Last season, OHS lost, 1-0, to CNS and 4-3 to Liverpool en route to finishing the season 18-3-1 and advancing the Class B state final.
Unatego 4, Norwich 3
The second of Tanner Reed’s two goals came with 10 ½ minutes left and snapped a 3-all as visiting Unatego rallied for a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.
Reed received a diagonal pass from Kayla Komenda before chipping an 18-yard shot over Norwich goalie Kassidy Seary (16 saves).
The Spartans tied the score at 3 on a penalty kick by Torri Halaquist. It came after a Norwich player was called for a handball in the box following a corner kick by Cassidy Newman.
