Alexis Forgit had a goal and an assist to lead defending Section Four Class D girls soccer champion Morris to a 3-0 quarterfinal victory over Margaretville at home Saturday.
“Our defense was very solid,” said Morris coach Rhoda Flint, who added Margaretville scoring threats Tess Svoboda and Elia Tanzer had very few touches Saturday. “I am very pleased with how the team is playing.”
Forgit opened the scoring off a throughball to the box from Mckenna Hungerford with 13 minutes, 26 seconds left in the first half.
Forgit then set up Kelsea Webster, who one-touched a cross into the far corner about 8 minutes later.
Emily Leboffe capped the scoring with a hard shot that deflected in off a defender in the second half for the fourth-seeded Mustangs (14-1-3), who finished with a 17-4 advantage in shots.
Katie Humphris made two saves for Tri-Valley League co-champion Morris, which advanced to a semifinal against top-seeded Downsville at the Wright National Soccer Campus in Oneonta on Wednesday, weather-permitting.
Alexiss Molnar stopped 10 shots for the Blue Devils (12-4-2), who played Downsville to a 1-1 tie in the Delaware League championship game Oct. 20 at the WNSC.
Franklin 2, Milford 1
Marisa Cawley scored the winning goal with 9 minutes left Saturday, leading third-seeded host Franklin to a Section Four Class D quarterfinal victory over Tri-Valley League co-champion Milford.
Cawley converted a corner kick from Mariah McNeily, scoring from inside the box to the near post.
Franklin’s Jesse Downin opened the scoring 5:43 into the first half, after McNeily shot from outside the box. Downin struck from 6 yards out to the near post.
Hannah Saggese scored on a 6-yard header with 14 minutes left in the first half to tie it for the sixth-seeded Wildcats (11-3-3), who played Morris to a scoreless tie in the Tri-Valley League championship game at the Wright National Soccer Campus in Oneonta.
