Defending Class D champ Morris wins, 2-0

Staff Report

Amanda Flint scored twice Wednesday as host Morris opened defense of its Section Four Class D championship with a 2-0 victory over Tri-Valley League rival Edmeston in the first round of the 2012 tournament.

“We did a very good job of controlling the middle of the field today,” said Morris coach Rhoda Flint, whose fourth-seeded team was coming off a scoreless tie against Milford in the T-V championship game Saturday at the Wright National Soccer Campus in Oneonta.

Amanda Flint scored a little more than 15 minutes in, touching a deflection into the goal. She scored again five minutes into the second half, dribbling the ball in from the 18-yard line and converting a one-on-one against Panthers goalie Kaitlin Talbot.

Mustangs goalie Katie Humphris made 11 saves for her 11th shutout of the season.

The 13th-seeded Panthers ended the season at 7-8-1.

Morris (13-1-3) hosts No. 5 seed Margaretville in a Class D sectional quarterfinal Saturday. Margaretville played Downsville to a 2-2 tie in the Delaware League championship game Saturday at the WNSC.

Milford 4, Stamford 1

Hannah Saggese had two goals as No. 6 seed Milford won at home in the first round of the Section Four Class D Tournament.

Addy Lawson opened the scoring for the Wildcats 2:30 in, converting a pass from Rileigh Griffiths.

Saggese then scored from 22 yards at the 20-minute mark, off a pass from Lawson. Saggese’s second goal came four minutes later as she headed in a corner kick from Francesca Green.

Milford (12-2-3) went ahead, 4-0, when Natasha Skillen scored from inside the 18 with 10 minutes left.

Stamford (8-8), the 11th seed, avoided the shutout with one second left as Erin Hull scored on a breakaway.

Milford plays at No. 3 Franklin (13-2) at 1 p.m. Saturday. The Purple Devils beat the Wildcats, 4-0, on Sept. 14 in Franklin.

“I don’t think we played a bad game,” Milford coach Chris Saggese said. “It was probably the single-best performance by an athlete I have ever seen. Jordan Beers, she dominated us. She scored three goals that game, and all the goals came from 22 to 35 yards out.
