Meah Boyles and Kate Donnelly each scored as Cooperstown held onto an early two-goal lead to defeat Westmoreland, 2-1, Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Center State Conference Division III girls soccer.

“Our defense played very hard. We were marking their best player and we had a nice rotation to keep her from scoring more than one,” Cooperstown coach Jennifer Pindar said.

Boyles opened the scoring after just three minutes, working her way past the goalkeeper and shooting into an empty net.

Donnelly doubled the deficit six minutes later, converting a cross from Lindsey Trosset to put the Hawkeyes ahead by two after nine minutes.

Mary Muller pulled one back for Westmoreland with 26 minutes left in the half, but Cooperstown played shutout defense for the last 66 minutes to win its third consecutive game

“We are very excited. They are a true team and they are playing as a team,” Pindar said. “Even tonight, I had girls playing positions they aren’t used to but they come in and run hard. The camaraderie is really there.”

The Hawkeyes (5-1-1, 2-0-1) host Utica Academy of Science at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, for a homecoming match.

Unatego 1, Newark Valley 0

Unatego needed overtime to defeat Newark Valley as Morgan Perry’s goal in the first period of overtime lifted the Spartans in nonleague play.

The nonleague decision gave the Spartans two wins in as many days.

“It was a good game for us. It was competitive, it was physical, and it was fast,” Unatego coach Sue Herodes said. “We really needed that, and to deal with the fact that we weren’t putting the ball in the back of the net. Frustration can play a part, but we dealt with it.”

Perry’s goal came with 1:17 left in the first extra period as Dana Stepp fed a through ball behind the defense. Perry latched onto it and slid a shot into the near post for the crucial tally.

The Spartans finished with a 21-10 advantage in shots, but goalkeeper Meghan Perry was called on to make 10 saves. Christa Shanbacher made 16 saves for Newark Valley.

“It was a very fast-paced game and a physical game. We were back and forth,” Herodes said. “It was good for us. We had quite a few opportunities, hit a few posts, had some scrums. Their goalkeeper made a few really nice saves.”

The Spartans (8-0, 6-0) return to Midstate Athletic Conference play at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, hosting Walton.
