The unbeaten Patriots — the defending Section Four Class D champions — held a 16-2 advantage in shots.
“I would call it a clinic in soccer,” Schenevus coach Jim Huntington said. “They outplayed us totally. “I think (they’re as good as last year) and they’re young. I would say they’re a little smaller, but they’re as talented, and they’re faster than last year.”
Jordan Manikas also scored for CV-S.

Peyton Griffiths scored three times to lead Milford to a Tri-Valley League road win.

“After that, we did a lot of substituting,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said. “We were pretty sore from the South Kortright game (a 3-2 overtime victory Saturday in a first-round game of the Chic Walshe Tournament at Davenport). Everyone played 30-40 minutes.”
Rowley finished with two goals and one assist. Isaac Gomez also scored for the Redskins (5-1), who held a 25-7 advantage in shots.

South Kortright held advantages of 17-10 in shots and 3-2 in corner kicks.
“We were fortunate to win,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said. “South Kortright had two shots hit off the crossbar in the second half and my goalie (Kevin Frevele) had to make a phenomenal save at the end of the second half. South Kortright won most of the 50-50 balls and most of the balls in the air. As I told my kids, the crossbar was our 12th man.
“Sometimes soccer is a cruel game,” he added. “We were not doing many things right and we were not playing the way we wanted.”
Trevor Holdridge scored both of the Rams’ goals.
Holdridge beat two defenders before scoring 10 minutes into play to give SK a 1-0 lead.
Cooperstown (4-1) tied it eight minutes later when Rowley tracked down a long pass by Tanner Clinton and beat goalie Brett Post on a breakaway.

“Quick was back on the right side when the ball was played up,” Schenevus coach Chris Kaltenbach said. “Our goalie sat back and she put it past her. It was not a clean play anywhere, but she put it in net for them.”
Sarah Mellor gave Schenevus the lead 12 minutes in, dribbling around a defender for a 1-on-1 with goalie Monica Renwick.
“She stayed calm and put it in on the far side on the ground,” Kaltenbach said.
Milford’s Kaley Chase tied the score with 10 seconds left in the half on a 12-yarder to the right post.
“Obviously it always hurts when you give up a goal with 10 seconds left in half,” Kaltenbach said. “It was a tough situation, but I thought our girls played well. Both teams did, it was just an aggressive, good, clean, hard game.”
Cooperstown 2, MM 19/21
Jordian Siver scored from 18 yards four minutes into the first overtime, leading host Cooperstown to a Center State Conference Division III victory that marked the Redskins’ first win of the season.
“It was a big win for us, a huge win,” Cooperstown coach Jen Pindar said. “The girls are working really hard, and we got it to come together for us today. We were talking and passing the ball really well.
“Katie (Kleban) did a great job,” Pindar said of the Redskins goalie, who had 14 saves. “She made a lot of big saves for us, including several in the 20 minutes of overtime.”
Siver took control of a bouncing ball on the 18-yard line in the center of the field. She took it right, then grounded it inside the left post.

Kylie Graham made nine saves and Garretson added that CV-S sweeper Olivia Hall also play a major role in the shutout.
“Kylie and Olivia were awesome,” said Garretson, who said several members of her team have been battling the flu. “All of them dug deep because they were feeling the best.”
