OHS girls ease past Windsor, 7-1

STAFF REPORT

Mariah Ruff scored goals two minutes apart, starting a run of four goals in the final 13 minutes of the first half that helped visiting Oneonta High to a 7-1 Southern Tier Athletic Conference girls soccer victory over Windsor on Tuesday.

Ruff received a throughball from Madison Miller and scored 13 minutes before halftime to make it 1-0. Two minutes later, Taylor Hitchcock laid a pass back to Ruff, who finished.

Abby Picinich also had two goals, Miller finished with a goal and an assist, and Rachel Brown and Brieanna Baker had goals for the Yellowjackets, who received three assists from Taryn More.

Windsor, which received a second-half goal from Sheree Baker, had 10 healthy players for the game, so both teams played 10 aside.

“We’re just happy to get out without any injuries and we’ll get ready to play Chenango Valley today,” OHS coach Jerry Mackey said of his 8-0-1 squad.

The Yellowjackets, who advanced to the Class B state title game a season ago, will play their third game in as many days today at home against CV.

Roxbury 1, Downsville 1

Shannon Sprague scored the tying goal on a direct kick with 21:41 left for host Roxbury, which tied Downsville in the Delaware League.

Sprague’s goal came from outside the box. She shot from the right side and scored to the far post.

“She struck a nice ball,” Roxbury coach Lisa Faraci said. “She did it quickly and didn’t allow them set up.”

Downsville opened the scoring with 25:45 left in the second on a penalty kick by Kendra Lacey. It came after Roxbury was called for a handball in the box.

Faraci singled out the defense of Jade Meehan, who marked Downsville standout Kaileen Townsend.

The Rockets (3-7-1, 2-3-1) will travel to Margaretville on Thursday.

Sidney 2, Walton 1

Freshman Mackensie Gravelin scored twice to rally host Sidney to a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.
