Theo Malone scored three goals and Oneonta High bounced back from Saturday’s loss at Owego with a 4-1 Southern Tier Athletic Conference boys soccer victory over visiting Seton Catholic Central on Tuesday.
“He’s very quick,” OHS coach Alex Brannan said of Malone, who scored the Yellowjackets’ final three goals. “He gets the ball on his foot and he’s very deceptive and can get around guys.”
Kragh Delello opened the scoring for OHS. He headed in a chipped pass from Zach Joseph with 23 minutes, 44 seconds left in the first half.
Malone made it 2-0 with 10 minutes left in the first half. He finished a throughball from Alex VanDeusen.
After Seton Catholic Central’s Alex Kashani scored on a header early in the second half, Malone scored on a 27-yard shot to restore Oneonta’s two-goal lead.
“It went to the top right-hand corner,” said Brannan, whose team fell, 4-3, at Owego in double-overtime Saturday. “It was a beautiful bender.”
Joseph finished with two assists and Willy Harrison made four saves for the the Yellowjackets (4-1, 4-1), who will host Windsor on Friday.
