Unatego continues unbeaten start against Sidney

RYAN AMES | The Daily Star Unatego's Anabel Rommer dribbles past Sidney's Tara Smith during Wednesday's game at Unatego.

Dana Stepp and Jenna Faulkner each scored two goals as Unatego remained unbeaten with a 6-0 home win over Sidney in the Midstate Athletic Conference.

The Spartans scored three on either side of halftime as seven players contributed to goals.

Stepp finished with two goals and two assists, while Faulkner totaled two goals. Paige McCoy had a goal and an assist, and Shealinn Stevens rounded out the Unatego goals.

Hali Lucia, Tatum Codington and Kaitlyn Fortin each had an assist.

"These kids, they are just very unselfish. They get excited when players come in off the bench and do well," Unatego coach Sue Herodes said. "They really are a good group of girls and they like to get everybody involved."

Meghan Perry made two saves for Unatego, and Haleigh Burton also saw time in net for the Spartans, but did not make a save. Meghan Greco made 14 stops for Sidney.

"She made a couple really nice saves," Herodes said. "There were a few on high balls I didn't expect her to get."

Unatego held a 24-2 lead in shots and an 11-3 advantage in corners on the way to a 3-0 start and a 2-0 mark in the MAC.

"We're doing some really good things. The kids are starting to see some things, and the vision is getting better on the field," Herodes said. "We still need to really work on our finishing of crosses and corner kicks but besides that, we are doing well."

The Spartans visit Delhi on Friday at 4:30 p.m.

South Kortright 2, Downsville 1

Goals by Madison Coberly and Kiersten Acer helped South Kortright to a win in its Delaware League opener.

The game was the first of the season between two teams that played three matches in 2018, including the league and section finals.

"Downsville is always a competitive team so to have them this early was a good test," SK coach Josh Burroughs said. "Defensively we stayed with our marks well, and our attack looked a little better than it has."

Coberley, a freshman, scored her first varsity to give the Rams a 1-0 lead in the first half. Acer doubled the deficit before halftime. Both goals were unassisted.

Kailee Young scored for Downsville with seven minutes remaining on an assist from Zelda Adams.

Olivia Brunner made five saves for the Eagles, and Grace Schneider stopped six shots for the Rams.
