No. 13 Gilboa upsets Delhi, 3-2


The Wildcats (13-3) outshot 14th-seeded Franklin, 18-5. Turner Thies made 13 saves for the Purple Devils, whose season ended at 6-8-2.

“Franklin came out strong in the second half,” Moorby said.

Moorby added that Davenport goalie Chris Kopf made couple of nice saves, including one on a direct kick late in the second half. Kopf had five saves in the shutout.

Davenport will face a Milford squad that defeated Roxbury, 4-0, Wednesday.

Milford 4, Roxbury 0

Peyton Griffiths finished with a goal and an assist to lead sixth-seeded Milford to a Section Four Class D first round victory at home.

A corner kick from William Ward set up Griffiths’ goal. He finished at the near post from 5 yards to make it 1-0 13 minutes into play.

Teammate Blake Elliott made it 2-0 with 18 minutes left in the second half, scoring off a throughball from Ward.

Eli Rutledge also scored for the Wildcats, who also benefited from an own goal. The Wildcats held a 10-6 advantage in shots.

Milford (13-4) will play at third-seeded Davenport in a Section Four Class D quarterfinal Saturday.

Morris 1, Southern Cayuga 0

Mike Murphy scored on a penalty kick with 13:55 left in the first half of ninth-seeded Morris’ Section Four Class D first-round win at No. 8 Southern Cayuga.

Morris coach Dave Sander said a ball was served into the box from the right side and an SC defender stuck his arm out and stopped the ball to set up the penalty kick.

Murphy scored cleanly to the lower left corner.

“There was a lot of even play,” said Sander, whose team had a 6-4 advantage in shots. “They were 4-8-2, but you could tell they played some bigger schools. They were really good up front. We were fortunate to get that one.”

Aidan Staib made four saves to get the shutout.

Next for the 9-5-2 Mustangs is a sectional semifinal at top-seeded Margaretville on Friday.

“They’re fast, they’re skilled and they know the game of soccer over there,” Sander said of a 15-0 Blue Devils squad that beat South Kortright, 4-1, in Saturday’s Delaware League final. “They’re impressive to watch. It’ll be tough, but we have a chance. We’re going to have to possess the ball.”
