Wildcats season ends at Davenport

Josh Davi and Kyle Moorby scored goals 1:08 apart late in the first half as third-seeded Davenport rallied for a Section Four Class D quarterfinal victory which eliminated Milford, 2-1.

Peyton Griffiths gave sixth-seeded Milford a 1-0 lead 11 minutes into play. Eli Rutledge’s pass set up a breakaway for Griffiths, who touched it twice before scoring.

Davi tied 8:45 before halftime. Moorby sent a corner kick into the box and Davi ran onto it, using his chest to get across the line from 6 yards.

About a minute later, Moorby and Cody Wamsley worked a passing combination along the right side that led to the go-ahead goal with 7:37 left in the half. Wamsley started it with a throw-in. Moorby then passed back to Wamsley, who dribbled toward the end line. Wamsley then passed back to Moorby, who chipped over shot over goalie Max Lang and inside the far post.

“Looking at the stats, most of the action occurred in the first half,” said Davenport coach Deb Moorby. “We had nine shots in the first half and they had six. In the second half, we were shutting each other down. It was kind of a back-and-forth game in the second half.”

Davenport (14-3) held a 10-9 advantage in shots. Lang finished with eight saves, one more than Davenport’s Chris Kopf.

CV-S 4, SK 0

Kurt Pressly scored twice and second-seeded Cherry Valley-Springfield limited visiting South Kortright to three shots in a Section Four Class D quarterfinal victory.

Pressly opened the scoring 6:10 before halftime. Hunter Cox started the scoring sequence on CV-S’ side of midfield. Cox sent a long ball to Noah Russo on the left side. Russo then sent a crossing pass to the right side of the box. Pressly cut in front of SK goalie Brett Post and bodied the ball into the goal.
