Davenport 1, CV-S 0


Travis Briggs scored off a throw-in during the first half, leading Davenport to a non-league victory at home.

“He threw it in front of the goal from the sideline and it went in off a defender,” Davenport coach Deb Moorby said. “He has a very good throw. It’s really like a corner kick.”

Moorby said Davenport paid special attention to Cherry Valley-Springfield’s Wyatt Crowley and Ben Drugatz to help limit the Patriots’ scoring opportunities.

“Crowley’s plays in the middle of the field and he’s a very strong player,” said Moorby, who marked Crowley with her son, Kyle, and Cody Wamsley. “He throws their balls in and takes their kicks. And Drugatz is a very good player, too, so we just tried to keep somebody on him all the time.”

Jeremy Pickett made three saves for CV-S (6-1), which finished with advantages of 10-7 in shots and 8-2 in corner kicks.

Davenport goalie Chris Kopf stopped six shots for his fourth shutout of the season.

“He had some beautiful saves,” Deb Moorby said. “I told him after the game that he earned the game ball today. He really did a great job in goal.”

“He took a hard shot from probably between the 18-yard line and halfway up the field,” Wildcats coach Deb Moorby said. “It was a beautiful shot.”

Davenport’s Kyle Moorby tied the score two minutes into the second half, heading a throw-in by Travis Briggs inside the far post.

Jack Donnelly scored off a Tanner Clinton assist in the first half for Cooperstown, which was outshot, 12-3.

Cooperstown and Worcester will play in the consolation game at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Neither side could find the goal in a matchup of Tri-Valley League heavyweights at Cherry Valley-Springfield.

“It was kind of back and forth,” Patriots coach Amy Garretson said. “It was in the 18 a lot for both teams. It was a well fought game. The possession was probably 50-50. (CV-S goalie) Kylie (Graham) had a few nice saves as well as their goalie (Kaylin Oliver).”

Graham had six saves, one more than Oliver.

Garretson said her team’s best chance came in the second overtime. Zane Ashford set up for a direct kick that went just wide of the left post.

“We’ll take it,” Garretson said of the tie.
