Schenevus rallies for first-round win


“We had a ton of opportunities, we just couldn’t make it happen in the first half,” said Windham coach Jim Todaro, whose team took 14 of its 21 shots in the first 40 minutes.

Jayra Blanton made 14 saves for Davenport, which finished with eight shots. Windham also had a 12-6 advantage in corner kicks.

Franklin 2, Downsville 0

Jessica Downin and Mariah McNeilly scored in the first half to lead visiting Franklin to a first-round upset in the Section Four Class D Tournament.

Downin scored from inside the box with an unassisted shot to the left corner 3:30 into play. McNeilly made it 2-0 in favor of the 10th-seeded Purple Devils (10-4-1) by curling in a corner kick with 26 minutes to go in the first half. McNeilly’s shot from the left side marked her third goal off a corner kick this season.

“Our back line was real solid tonight,” said Franklin coach J.J. Laing, who got three saves from goalie Jordan Beers in her third straight shutout.

Kacie Banker made one save for seventh-seeded Downsville (9-5-2) of the Delaware League, which was outshot, 6-3, and took six corner kicks — five fewer than Franklin.

The Purple Devils advanced to a Friday quarterfinal at second-seeded Cherry Valley-Springfield (12-2-1). Franklin fell, 5-2, to the Patriots on Sept. 26 in Tri-Valley League play.

Delhi 5, SC 1

Casey Steffens scored four goals to lead fifth-seeded Delhi to a first-round Section Four Class D Tournament victory at home.

Steffens’ first goal came five minutes into play, following a throughball from Melissa Conrad and beating a defender before scoring from 15 yards.

Her second goal came 10 minutes later on a direct kick from 25 yards, giving the Bulldogs (9-8) a 2-0 lead.

“We played one of the best games we’ve played all season,” said Delhi coach Matt Albright, whose Midstate Athletic Conference team finished with advantages of 16-10 in shots and 3-0 in corner kicks against 12th-seeded Southern Cayuga (3-12) of the Interscholastic Athletic Conference. “Everyone was doing their job, which was nice.”
