Peddie leads Laurens; OHS' Brannan wins 400th

CHERYL CLOUGH Adam Peddie controls the ball Wednesday during Laurens' 5-0 win over visiting Edmeston. Peddie netted four goals for the Leopards. 

Adam Peddie scored four goals as Laurens rolled over Edmeston, 5-0, Wednesday in the Tri-Valley League.

The Leopards roared out to a 3-0 lead at halftime before sealing the win with two more strikes in the second half.

“He's kind of our go-to guy and he's a pretty accurate shooter and he had a great game,” Laurens coach Dave Miller said of Peddie.

Rylie Nemitz tallied the other goal for the Leopards while Michael Peddie and Jesse Chase registered one assist each.

“I was really pleased with the way we played together,” Miller said. “The boys really moved the ball well together.”

Laurens' teamwork led to 14 shots and two corners. Edmeston finished with five shots and five corners.

Chris Long earned the shutout for the Leopards with four saves. Panthers goalie Garrett Lum made five saves.

Laurens (4-0, 2-0) plays in the Mayor's Cup final against South Kortright on Saturday at Stamford.

Oneonta 6, Seton Catholic 0

Ten players were involved in the scoring, including two that tallied their first varsity goals, as Oneonta coach Alex Brannan reached 400 varsity wins.

"It never gets old. It's always great when you see kids score, especially with the way they did," Brannan said of first-time scorers Robert Withington and Max Madej. "I didn't really realize this was my 400th heading into the season. I don't really think about that stuff. The seasons all run together."

By the time Madej and Withington got their goals in the second half, the Yellowjackets were already well in control. Lance Maben assisted Alex Bitterman for the opener and Andrew Carrington dished to Nate Kuhlmann as OHS took a 2-0 lead at halftime.

Goals by EJ Kavrazonis and Dylan Davi made the deficit four before Madej scored on a shot from outside the box and assisted Withington on a corner kick.

"The challenge for me is getting all of the guys in. I'm usually at 18, 19, but I've got 22 this year and they all played again today," Brannan said.

Brannan, in his 34th year, noted that about 100 of his victories came during a five-year span covering the end of the 1990s and early 2000s.

"It's different now. Nowadays you're lucky to get a 20-win season because you just don't play that many games," he said.

The Yellowjackets finished 17-2 in 2018 despite completing the regular season undefeated. Brannan's team won a third consecutive section title after taking a first defeat in the STAC playoffs, eventually falling in the regional final.

OHS (4-0) visits Susquehanna Valley on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Gallagher found Darling again four minutes later, serving in a cross that Darling headed home.
