Oneonta High couldn’t do anything about the one that got away Friday.
Mike Rood sent a 30-yard free kick into the upper corner of Oneonta’s goal with about 17 minutes left as Susquehanna Valley avenged its 2011 Section Four Class B championship loss to the Yellowjackets with a 1-0 home victory in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference.
“The game could have gone either way,” said OHS coach Alex Brannan, whose team finished with a 9-8 edge in shots. “I told them a nice goal was going to win the game and it was a nice goal.
“We had the wall set up and he hit the top corner. What are you going to do?” Brannan continued. “The kids were upset, but it was a great goal.”
Colin Manchester secured the shutout with five saves for Susquehanna Valley (8-0, 8-0), who fell, 3-2, to OHS in the 2011 sectional final at the Wright National Soccer Campus.
“We knew they were going to be tough because they only lost two players from last year’s team,” Brannan said. “We had chances, but we didn’t put them away.”
