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.
