Goalies Jordan Beers and Kaylyn Oliver pitched shutouts Friday as the co-defending Section Four Class D girls soccer champions played to a scoreless tie in a Tri-Valley League game at Morris.
Beers made 11 saves for the Purple Devils (8-4-1, 8-3-1), who were limited to four shots and one corner kick in the double-overtime game.
Oliver stopped all four Franklin shots for Morris (11-2-2, 9-2-2), which failed to produce a goal on 13 shots and four corners.
“We had opportunities to score, but we were not able to finish,” said Morris coach Rhoda Flint, whose program tied Franklin in the 2012 sectional final before the Purple Devils advanced to the state tournament by winning a shootout.
Milford 5, Worcester 1
Hannah Saggese finished with two goals and two assists to lead host Milford to a Tri-Valley League win.
Saggese’s corner kick set up Addy Lawson for a 6-yard header inside the far post for a 1-0 lead 50 seconds into play. Saggese got her second assist when Kaley Chase scored on a 9-yarder eight minutes into the first half.
Saggese had two goals of her own and Chase scored again before halftime as Milford took a 5-0 lead into the break.
Kerrin O’Shaughnessy scored an unassisted goal from 25 yards with seven minutes left as Worcester avoided the shutout.
The Wildcats (12-1, 11-1) visit Laurens on Saturday.
SK 4, Davenport 0
Brianna Laing scored twice to lead South Kortright to a Delaware League triumph at home.
Laing touched in pass from Tori Rockefeller to open the scoring 10:02 into the match, and Kaitlyn Stinson gave the Rams (13-2, 9-0) a 2-0 lead on an unassisted 20-yarder with 41 seconds to go before halftime.
Laing and Shianne Coss scored in the second half for Mountain Division champion SK, which is off until the Delaware League championship game Oct. 19 at the Wright National Soccer Campus in Oneonta.
SK coach Josh Burroughs said he believes the Rams will face Davenport (9-3-2, 5-1-2) in the DL crossover. The Wildcats, who close their regular season against Gilboa on Wednesday, entered the week as the first-place team in the Upper Division. Windham (8-3, 6-3) is second in the division.
Downsville 4, Margaretville 1
Kaileen Townsend scored three goals to lead visiting Downsville to a Delaware League victory.
Townsend opened the scoring 2:18 into the game with an 18-yard shot off a pass from Leigha LaTourette.
Cecilia Galatioto tied the score with 14:23 left before halftime as a handball in the box set her up for a penalty kick that beat Downsville goalie Kacie Banker (10 saves).
Kim Dusseldorp’s unassisted goal with 9:25 to go in the first half marked the go-ahead goal for the Eagles, who went up, 3-1, on an unassisted goal by Townsend 4:25 later.
Townsend also scored in the second half for Downsville, which ended Margaretville’s season at 2-9-1 overall and 1-7-1 in the Delaware League.
Windham 1, H-T 0
Mattie Seamans headed in a corner kick from Natalie Vining with about eight minutes left, lifting Windham to a road win in the Delaware League.
“Just about every corner kick they had prior to that was deep, so our goalie backed up and that one went to the near post,” said H-T coach Julia France, who got a season-best 19 saves from Samantha Dibbell. “They hammered her today. She did a heck of a job.”
H-T’s season ended at 1-9-2 overall and 1-8-1 in the DL. France said six of those losses were one-goal games.
Jane Rion made one save in the shutout for the Warriors (8-3, 6-3), who held advantages of 23-2 in shots and 9-2 in corner kicks.
Stamford 1, Gilboa 1
Kim Freer scored the equalizer with 1:47 left in the second overtime as Stamford earned a Delaware League tie at home.
Kim Gockel opened the scoring a minute into the second overtime, giving Gilboa a 1-0 lead with a shot during a scrum in front of the Stamford net.
The Indians tied it after a corner kick by Brandy Fane bounced back out to the sender. Fane then found Freer, who one-touched in the tying goal.
Allison McGuire made six saves for Gilboa, which held a 12-10 advantage in shots.
Nikki McGrath stopped 10 shots for the Indians (4-7-1, 2-5-1), who close their season at 11 a.m. Saturday against Downsville.
