South Kortright boys win Mountain title on OT goal


Dylan Cole’s goal on a corner kick with 1 minute, 50 seconds left in the first overtime lifted host South Kortright to a 3-2 Delaware League boys soccer victory Wednesday over Davenport that clinched the Mountain Division title.

“These kids did more than I expected,” SK coach Bob VanValkenburgh said. “We had some tight games early, and showed a lot of improvement this year. There were a lot of tight games; the league was very good this year.”

Cole’s goal took one bounce close to the near post and went in.

Davenport tied the score at 2 with 2:16 left in regulation on Kyle Moorby’s direct kick from 25 yards.

SK led, 2-0, on first-half goals by Dan Nelson and Trevor Holdridge. Corey Hartman had a first-half goal for the Wildcats.

SK (11-3, 7-1) hosts Downsville on Monday in its final regular season game, and will play Upper Division winner Margaretville in the crossover on Oct. 20 at the Wright National Soccer Campus.

With 20 minutes left, Short had possession 18 yards and dropped a pass back to Reither, who shot into the right corner of the goal.
