---- — Staff Report

For the second straight year, Unadilla Valley’s Jared Hanslmaier scored the winning goal against Bainbridge-Guilford as the host Storm earned a 1-0 Midstate Athletic Conference boys soccer victory Tuesday.

Hanslmaier scored on a direct kick from just inside the midfield line.

UV coach Ryan Houck wrote in an email that Hanslmaier scored a nearly identical goal last season when UV beat the Bobcats, 1-0.

“Lightning has struck twice!” Houck wrote in the email.

Hanslmaier’s goal Tuesday came with 27 seconds left in the first half.

“Hanslmaier approached the kick and noticed (B-G goalie Brandt) McCall playing far off his line, anticipating a cross,” Houck wrote. “Jared took advantage.”

Hanslmaier’s shot settled into the side netting.

Kyle King stopped nine shots for UV, two more than counterpart McCall.

“In past years, it’s always been the team that has capitalized on mistakes that wins,” Houck wrote of playing B-G, “and this year, we were able to do just that.”

Unatego 4, Walton 0

Johnathan Forte scored twice as host Unatego earned a MAC victory.

Unatego took a 1-0 lead 7 1/2 minutes into play, when Austin Ryan scored on a rebound from close range. About six minutes later, Forte scored into the bottom-right corner after receiving a throughball from Tristin Roefs.

Liam Alvin also scored for the Spartans (3-0-1, 3-0-1), who will travel to Bainbridge-Guilford on Thursday.

Delhi 5, Afton 2

Jake Zinkievich’s two goals and one assist led host Delhi in the MAC.

Ian Oliver and Kragh Delello contributed two goals apiece for the Yellowjackets (3-0, 3-0), who received one goal and one assist from Peter Paluch.

“Zach had a great night, and once we scored in the second half, it was nice because everybody got to play tonight,” said OHS coach Alex Brannan, whose team took a 3-1 lead into halftime.

Oneonta, which finished with a 30-3 advantage in shots, visits Johnson City on Thursday.

Gomes, a senior who qualified state meet in track in the 200 meters this past spring, scored 8 minutes into the second half to make it 2-0. He received a pass from Billy Smith and shot into the lower-left corner.

“It’s definitely a big plus,” Downsville coach Scott Reed said of Gomes’ speed. “He’s very disruptive on the field. Most kids don’t estimate that kind of speed well.”

Mike Tompkins also scored for the Eagles (2-1, 1-0), who will host South Kortright on Thursday.

Chase Plattner scored for Hunter-Tannersville.

GIRLS SOCCER

Downsville 3, H-T 0

Kendra Lacey scored twice, Leigha LaTourette scored once, and Kaileen Townsend assisted on all three goals as Downsville won at home in the Delaware League.

“We have quite a bit of offense coming back,” Downsville coach Burt Reed said of forwards Lacey, LaTourette and Townsend.

Three goals and one assist from Sarah Haight helped host Davenport to a Delaware League victory.

Bailee Hymers contributed two goals for the Wildcats.

Hymers’ first goal came 5:44 into play. She controlled a loose ball in the box to set up the goal that made it 1-0.

Haight made it 2-0 about 10 minutes into play. She finished a pass from Alyssa Hendrickson.

In the second half, Haight scored on a restart from about 25 yards, scoring into the upper-right corner.

Gabby Caiazza contributed two goals for the Indians (2-1, 1-0), who’ll play South Kortright at 2 p.m. Saturday in a Stamford Mayor’s Cup game.

Roxbury 4, Windham 3

Devin Fox scored the decisive goal with 5:44 left in the second of two mandatory overtime periods as Roxbury won in the Delaware League to spoil Windham’s season opener on its new field.

Fox followed a long throw-in that keeper Jane Rion (six saves) jumped to intercept, but the Windham senior juggled the ball on the way down. Fox then bodied the ball into the net for the final margin.

“We had a couple good runs after that, but the heat was definitely a factor today,” Windham coach Jim Todaro said. “Two of our players went down with muscle spasms in the last seven minutes. ... The girls left everything they had on the field. I can’t ask for anything more.”

Fox and Shannon Sprague finished with two goals apiece for the Rockets, who won despite getting outshot, 24-12. Roxbury goalie Lisa Boyke made 16 saves.

Caitlyn Lane scored twice and Mattie Seamans had a goal and an assist for the Warriors, who held a 15-6 advantage in corner kicks.
