The Daily Star

---- — Staff Report

Two goals from sophomore Cody Wamsley helped Davenport to a 3-1 boys soccer victory over Schenevus in the championship game of the Stamford Mayor’s Cup on Saturday.

The Wildcats, who placed Wamsley, Matt Finne, Kyle Moorby and Travis Briggs on the all-tournament team, improved to 4-1 on the season.

Wamsley gave Davenport a 1-0 lead in the first half off an assist from Moorby. Paul Clark made it 2-0 1:31 into the second half. He controlled a throw-in from Briggs and one-timed into the goal.

About eight minutes later, Wamsley gave Davenport a three-goal cushion. Eric Merwin took a shot from the right side of the field that bounced out to Wamsley, who drove a hard shot into the goal from 12 yards.

“I’m happy with what we’ve accomplished so far,” said Davenport coach Deb Moorby, whose roster includes three seniors. “We’re working well together and passing well. We have a few players who play travel soccer together so that helps.”

Schenevus capped the scoring with about six minutes left, when Corey Roseboom scored on a rebound.

John Miller, Dave Vosatka and Jacob Darling made the all-tournament team for the Dragons.

Davenport will host Stamford on Thursday.

Stamford 1, SK 1

Glen Cioccari scored with 27 minutes remaining in the second half as the Indians tied South Kortright in the third-place game of the Stamford Mayor’s Cup.

Dustin King sent a cross from the top of the 18-yard box to Cioccari, whose header to the far post gave Stamford a 1-0 lead.

Griff Metzko scored with 9 ½ minutes left to tie the score. Sam Fabrykiewicz assisted Metzko’s goal.

Stamford (2-1-1, 1-0) will visit Windham today.

B-G 6, Norwich 1

Kyle Hanvey scored three goals to lead visiting Bainbridge-Guilford to a non-league victory.

All three of Hanvey’s goals came in the first half as the Bobcats took a 5-1 lead. Jake Cuozzo and Daniel Norris also scored in the first half for B-G.

Thomas Petrutoni scored in the second half for the Bobcats (3-2, 3-1), who will visit Greene on Wednesday.

SV 4, Oneonta 3

The visiting Yellowjackets erased a two-goal deficit by scoring three goals in a span of 3:38 of the second half before Susquehanna Valley rallied to win in double-overtime in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference game.

Jake Evans scored the second of his two goals with 4:56 left in the second overtime to give the Sabers the victory in a rematch of last season’s Section Four Class B final that SV won, 5-2.

Evans received a throughball from Ryan Caroway, who finished with three assists.

SV forced overtime when Ryan Lehtonen scored with 1:08 to go in regulation. Lehtonen took a 22-yard shot that deflected off a player and into the goal.

“I thought we played well, but it seemed like when we made mistakes they capitalized,” OHS coach Alex Brannan said. “When you make mistakes against a team like that, they will capitalize, especially at their place.”

Oneonta’s comeback started with Theo Malone’s goal with 16:26 remaining. Zach Joseph took a direct kick that deflected off the post. Ian Oliver controlled the deflection and took a shot that got behind SV goalie Matt Merrell. Malone was there to tap in the rebound to make it 2-1.

Malone set up Oneonta’s second goal. He beat several players along the left wing before sending a crossing pass that Kragh Delello finished at the far post.

Joseph tied the score with 12:48 remaining to give OHS a 3-2 lead. He took a free kick that deflected off of one of the players forming SV’s wall and into the goal.

Oneonta (2-1, 2-1) will host Seton Catholic Central on Tuesday at the Wright National Soccer Campus.

Kacie Hymers opened the scoring with 37:16 left in the first half.

Haight sent a through ball to Hymers, who scored to the far post from 12 yards.

Makayla Ruchar tied the score for Delhi with 23:04 left in the opening half.

Haight, Hymers, Jayra Blanton and Abby Wood earned all-tournament honors for Davenport (5-0, 2-0), which will visit Stamford on Thursday.

Casey Steffens, Stephanie Bishop and Kaitlyn Finch made the all-tournament team for Delhi.

About five minutes later, Stinson set up Acuna with a crossing pass that made it 2-0. Brianna Laing capped the first half scoring by scoring on a low shot with her left foot with 8:07 showing on the clock.

“The girls played a nice game coming off a tough game against Downsville the night before,” SK coach Josh Burroughs said. “We’re starting to move the ball better.”

The Rams (4-1) will travel to Margaretville today.

Gilboa 2, Jefferson 0

Taylor Mattice and Jana Traver each scored to lead the Wildcats to victory in the fifth-place game of the Stamford Mayor’s Cup.

St. Johnsville 8, Unatego 4

Tanner Reed, Mary Rommer, Emily Slawson and Mariah Scott scored for Unatego, which lost a first-round game of the Kyle Sharp Tournament at Schoharie.

“It was a crazy game,” Unatego coach Sue Herodes said. “Realistically, if you look at the shots and corners, it was very evenly played. They just had some very nice opportunities and we broke down a little bit.”

St. Johnsville had advantages of 17-13 in shots and 8-4 in corner kicks.

Unatego (1-2), which won the Section Four Class C title last season, will host Sidney on Tuesday. The Spartans will play Duanesburg or Schoharie in the tournament consolation game Saturday.

G-MU 1, B-G 0

Autumn Butler converted a cross from Mackenzie Talbot with 3:20 left Saturday as Gilbertsville-Mount Upton won the championship of the N.Y. Pizzeria Tournament at Unadilla Valley.

Tournament MVP Talbot beat a defender to the flag and sent a low cross to the front of the goal. B-G goalie Megan Ferrara (14 saves) intercepted the pass but bobbled the ball, giving Butler a chance to tap it in for the decisive goal.

The Raiders, who received 16 saves from Katie Schultes, held B-G without a shot the rest of the way.

Kelsey Ross, Katie Schultes and Jenna Bakhuizen made the All-Tournament Team for G-MU, which opened the tournament Friday with a 3-0 defeat of Walton. Taylor Nichols had two goals Friday, when Talbot contributed a goal and an assist.
