OHS boys edge Forks in STAC

Staff Report

Kragh Delello scored the decisive goal late in the second half as Oneonta High earned a 2-1 boys soccer victory over visiting Chenango Forks on Friday in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference.

Zach Joseph set up the go-ahead score with a free kick that Blue Devils goalie Arthur Ingraham (10 saves) pushed away. Oneonta’s Peter Paluch raced to save the ball from going past the endline, finding Delello with a pass back into play.

Delello, who charged toward the goal on the play, scored from 2 yards with 13 minutes, 40 seconds left for the final margin.

Trey Peterson opened the scoring 2 1/2 minutes in on a rebound after OHS keeper Jeremy Leary stopped a shot on goal for one of his four saves. A minute later, Theo Malone took a pass from Yellowjackets teammate J.D. Courtney and scored to tie it at 1.

“Right after you score is the biggest time you’re most susceptible to giving up a goal,” OHS coach Alex Brannan said.

Oneonta, which finished with a 14-5 advantage in shots, hosts Chenango Valley on Tuesday.

Unatego 2, WP 1

Johnathan Forte scored his second goal with 3 1/2 minutes left in the second overtime of sudden-victory as Unatego earned a non-league win on the road.

Forte followed a shot that deflected off Whitney Point keeper Riley Abrahamson (11 saves) and put in the rebound for the victory. Forte also opened the scoring, converting a pass from Trace Thayer 11 minutes into the game.

Zach Marsh tied it for Whitney Point off a pass from Brady Harrington 15 minutes into the second half.

Mark Maruszewski made 12 saves for the Spartans (2-0-1), who host Walton on Tuesday.

Morris 1, G-MU 0

Ryan Morlock scored with 24:09 left, converting a cross from Mike Murphy for a shot from inside the 18-yard box as Morris won a Tri-Valley League game on the road.
