Soccer playoffs get heated

All three local boys soccer teams made the playoffs this year, and while the same holds true for the girls, it is the boys teams that might have the best odds of bringing home a section title.

Cooperstown (14-2) captured a No. 1 seed a year after making the section finals.

 The Redskins lost their opener and lost to Hamilton with a depleted squad. After avenging the loss to Hamilton three days later, the Redskins tied them for the Center State Conference Division III title.

Cooperstown will get a first-round bye in the Section Three Class C playoffs. On Friday, the Redskins will host the winner of the Sauquoit Valley-Bishop Grimes game, which took place Wednesday after deadline.

Defending Section Four Class D champs Cherry Valley-Springfield (16-1) will enter the playoffs with a surprising loss, its first of the season. The Patriots lost 1-0 to Morris in the Tri-Valley crossover game.

There will be a chance for revenge. No. 3 seed CV-S beat Schenevus 1-0  and No. 6 seed Morris beat Laurens 1-0, both on Tuesday.The Mustangs will visit Cherry Valley for a rematch tomorrow.

The crossover game did not count in the playoff seedings, meaning CV-S drew a three seed despite an undefeated regular season. No. 1 seed Elmira-Notre Dame and No. 2 seed Marathon, both 13-2, got the benefit of extra points for playing games up in class.

No. 9 seed Milford (9-4-2) won 2-0 at No. 8 Edmeston on Tuesday and will play  Elmira-Notre Dame tomorrow.

Elijah Coley and Peyton Griffiths had the goals for the Wildcats. 

The Section Three Class C boys semifinals are on Oct. 30 and the final is Nov. 3.

The Section Four Class D boys semifinals are also on Oct. 30 and the final is also on Nov. 3.
