Sports roundup

Cooperstown girls soccer opened its season with a pair of 1-0 victories at the Hall of Fame Tournament in Niskayuna.

Following a Mayfield handball in the penalty box, senior captain Kate Donnelly converted a penalty kick with a minute left to lift the Hawkeyes over Mayfield on Sunday.

“Kate kept her composure, took the kick, and kept it right on the ground, into the corner,” Cooperstown coach Jennifer Pindar said. “The keeper didn’t have a chance of saving it. She (Donnelly) showed no nervous energy, nothing like that.”

Cooperstown owned the shot count, 11-8, and took four corners to zero for Mayfield.

Meagan Schuermann made six saves for the Hawkeyes, and Mayfield’s Cat Knecht made seven.

Cooperstown 1, Canajoharie 0

Natalie Brotherton score the goal as the Hawkeyes opened their season with an identical scoreline Saturday.

Brotherton got to the ball on the right side, cutting back to the middle of the field for a first-half lead that held up for the Hawkeyes.

Cooperstown took 14 shots to 10 for Canajoharie, and led, 4-1, in corners.

“It’s a great way to start the season. We haven’t started this strong in a very long time so we are really excited,” Pindar said.

Schuermann made eight saves in the opener for the Hawkeyes.

Cooperstown (2-0) hosts Remsen on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

Gilboa 1, Jefferson 0

Keeley VanValkenburgh avenged a missed penalty kick Thursday against Stamford by scoring one with 30 seconds remaining to lift Gilboa over Jefferson on Saturday in the Mayor’s Cup.

“They were pretty excited because it came down to the penalty kicks here the game before and we had lost,” Gilboa coach April Houghtaling said. “I think Keeley was a little nervous, but she just stepped up and put it where she needed to put it.”

VanValkenburgh, a senior captain for the Wildcats, got the opportunity after defender Jenna Pasternak drew a foul in the penalty box with less than a minute remaining. VanValkenburgh shot high and Jefferson goalkeeper Amber Cole got her fingers to the effort, but could not keep out the crucial strike.

The Wildcats finished with a 10-1 advantage in shots and a 2-1 lead in corner kicks.

Cole made eight saves for Jefferson and Krissy Brandow stopped one shot for Gilboa.

The Wildcats (1-0-1) visit Windham on Thursday at 4:15 p.m.

South Kortright 6, Laurens 0

Kiersten Acer scored twice as South Kortright picked up its first win of the season Saturday in the Mayor's Cup second round.

The Rams led the shot count, 25-0, and took 13 corners to one for Laurens.

Cherry-Valley Springfield 4, Sherburne-Earlville 1

Arianna Bosc scored five goals and Kelsey Girard earned Defensive MVP honors as Cherry-Valley Springfield won Mount Markham’s Optimist Tournament with wins on Friday and Saturday.

Saturday’s final saw Bosc, a freshman, score four goals to power the Patriots past Class C Sherburne-Earlville.

CV-S went behind after just 33 seconds, but equalized eight minutes later as Jaelyn Jaquay found Bosc.

Jaquay assisted Bosc again 10 minutes later as the Patriots went ahead with 22 minutes left in the half. Bosc finished her hat trick with 10:20 remaining in the period, with Mia Horvath providing the assist as CV-S took a two-goal advantage at the break.

“We have had many players contribute goals this season and this weekend it was Ari Bosc’s turn,” CV-S coach Denis DeRider said in an email. “Ari was getting to her spots and opening up for her teammates to distribute.”

The freshman pushed the deficit to 4-1 three minutes into the second half as Allison Lennebacker assisted.

Girard stopped nine shots, and S-E’s Makayla Cornelius made eight saves. The Patriots led the shot count, 14-9, and took five corners to Sherburne-Earlville’s three.

Cherry-Valley Springfield 1, Mount Markham 0

The Patriots opened the weekend with a defense-oriented victory over Class B Mount Markham on Friday night.

Bosc scored the lone goal nine minutes into the game on a through ball by Sarah Lewis.

CV-S relied on its defense the rest of the way as Mount Markham finished with leads of 14-4 in shots and 3-2 in corners. Girard stopped 14 shots for the Patriots to advance to Saturday’s tournament final.

“We had huge defensive efforts this weekend,” DeRider said. “It’s hard to recognize just a few players because this team works well together and so many players step up any minute.”

Girard earned Defensive MVP honors with two shutouts and 23 saves. Bosc was joined by Lennebacker and Kendra McGovern on the all-tournament team.

CV-S (5-0, 1-0) looks to solidify its claim as one of the area’s top teams Tuesday at Morris.
