Blake Elliott scored off an assist from Peyton Griffiths 4 ½ minutes into play as host Milford defeated Schenevus, 1-0, Tuesday in a Tri-Valley League boys soccer game.

Griffiths sent a throughball that Elliott one-timed into the goal from 18 yards.

“That was a nice goal,” Milford coach Frank Spurchise said.

Robert Burton made 12 saves for Schenevus.

“(Burton) did a great job and Dave Vosatka, he played sweeper for them tonight, did a great job as well,” Spurchise said. “They’re real strong back there.”

Milford (11-2, 10-1) will travel to Worcester on Friday. Then on Monday, the Wildcats will travel to Cherry Valley-Springfield in a game that could decide the East Division title.

Edmeston 1, Morris 0

“It was so quick,” Bainbridge-Guilford coach Pete Feltham said of the Trojans’ goal.

The Bobcats (8-6, 7-5) had a chance with two minutes left. Thomas Petrutoni took a shot following a corner kick, but a Greene defender cleared it off the line.

Brandt McCall made 15 saves for the B-G.

“Brandt played very well tonight to keep us in the game,” said Feltham, whose team lost, 7-1, to the Trojans (13-0) earlier this season.

Owen D. Young (9-2, 7-1) tied it three minutes later on an 8-yard shot from Matthew Cristman. Ryan Crouse gave the visitors a 2-1 lead seven minutes before halftime, collecting a loose ball in the box before scoring.

It stayed that way until Dustin Monk scored on a breakaway with eight minutes to go.

Cooperstown (7-5, 6-4) held a 14-10 advantage in shots.
