Christian Imperi scored the lone goal as Delhi waited until the final 10 minutes to break the Afton/Harpursville defense Monday in a 1-0 Midstate Athletic Conference win for the Bulldogs.

Riley Livermore made 17 saves for the visitors as Delhi posted a 28-2 advantage in shots.

“It just looked like it wasn’t going to be our day,” Delhi coach Eddie Kingston said.

“He was stopping everything. We will take it, but he just had an incredible game.”

The crucial goal came as Delhi threw players forward in search of a goal. Kingston moved Danny Rolfe up front for his aerial presence, and the Bulldogs were rewarded when a ball found the feet of Rolfe in the attacking third of the field.

Rolfe laid a short pass into the path of Imperi, whose low shot beat Livermore for the game’s only goal.

Ben Blocker made one save for Delhi, which had an 8-2 lead in corners along with its 28-2 advantage in shots.

The Bulldogs (3-0) face a challenge in the MAC on Thursday when they visit Greene.
