Both teams took 11 shots and both goalies – Berger and Leon Cohane – finished with seven saves.
“I sure hope so,” McGlynn said when asked if his team can continue its run. “I would think we could play with anybody. We’re on a four-game win streak. We had to win out just to get into sectionals.”
Edmeston 3, Schenevus 0
Linton Wainright, Allen Wheeler and Austin Axtell scored as the fifth-seeded Panthers won a first-round game at home in the Section Four Class D tournament.
Wainright opened the scoring on a penalty kick in the first half. It came after an Edmeston player was pushed inside the penalty box.
Wheeler made it 2-0 with 18 minutes left. He scored to the far post from the top of the post.
“The shot was like the one that beat us on Saturday,” Edmeston coach Ken Plows said in reference to Wyatt Crowley’s winner in the second overtime that gave Cherry Valley-Springfield a 3-2 victory in the Tri-Valley League title game. “He hit it to the far opposite side of the goal and drilled a nice shot.”
Axtell capped the scoring five minutes later off a pass from Dante Cornnell.
Schenevus (7-7-2), the 12th seed, was outshot, 14-11, but had a 7-4 advantage in corner kicks.
“They definitely kept coming at us,” Plows said of the Dragons. “We felt we had a little better time control of the ball, but we were letting them through and they were getting some shots.”
Edmeston’s Logan Vibbard and counterpart Robert Burton each made nine saves.
The Panthers will host 13th-seeded Gilboa on Saturday.
“We’re definitely playing good soccer right now,” Plows said. “If we keep playing like we are, we should be in good shape, as long as we stay healthy.”
