Oneonta High’s boys extended their Southern Tier Athletic Conference regular-season winning streak to 35 matches with a 5-0 soccer victory Tuesday at Windsor.
Connor Brown had two goals and one assist, and Zach Joseph contributed one goal and an assist for the Yellowjackets, who last lost a STAC regular-season game Sept. 11, 2009 — a 2-1 setback to Owego at the Wright National Soccer Campus.
OHS won its last nine STAC games of 2009 and went 12-0 in conference play the past two seasons. Both of Oneonta’s wins this season are against STAC opponents.
“We looked better,” said OHS coach Alex Brannan, whose team opened the season with a 2-1 win over Chenango Forks. “We’re still making a couple of mistakes, but not as many today.”
Senior Stijn van Pel opened the scoring 24 minutes, 17 seconds into the first half. Joseph played a ball into the penalty box that deflected off a Windsor defender. Van Pel, who scored 20 goals last season, volleyed it into the goal on one bounce.
Kragh Delello scored 43 seconds into the second half to make it 2-0. Griffin Rule ran onto a long pass from the midfield and slid a pass to Delello, who one-timed it into the goal.
The Yellowjackets play host to Norwich on Friday.
Morris 1, Milford 1
Milford’s Elijah Cooley and Morris’ Matt Morlock exchanged first-half goals as the Tri-Valley League teams played to a tie at Morris.
Milford opened the scoring 14 1/2 minutes into play. Peyton Griffiths had a breakaway for the Wildcats on the right side. His shot was partially deflected by goalie Kerry Smith, but Cooley was unmarked on the other side and scored into an open net.
Morlock tied it six minutes before halftime. Josh Rutherford sent a long pass from midfield. Milford goalie Parker Fish came out of the net, but Morlock headed it over Fish and into the goal.
“Both teams had great chances,” Morris coach Dave Sander said. “It’s early in the season and we’re just not finishing yet, and they didn’t either. We had eight corner kicks and at least three in overtime.
“Both keepers played good games as well,” he continued. “There were good opportunities.”
Fish finished with 11 saves — two more than Smith.
Morris (0-1-1, 0-0-1) travels to Cherry Valley-Springfield on Friday in a rematch of last year’s Tri-Valley League championship game that ended in a 0-0 tie.
Schenevus 2, G-MU 0
Cory Roseboom and Tim Gregory scored about a minute apart late in the second half to lift visiting Schenevus to a Tri-Valley League victory.
Roseboom gave the Dragons a 1-0 lead, scoring on a header off a corner kick by Dave Vosatka with 7:06 left.
Gregory then beat a defender on the left side before scoring on a 6-yard shot with 6:07 to play.
G-MU (0-1, 0-1) travels to Richfield Springs on Friday.
Margaretville 5, H-T 0
Kyle Short and Matt VanValkenburg each had a goal and an assist in the first half to lead host Margaretville to a non-league victory.
VanValkenburg assisted Short’s goal 10 minutes into play. Short then set up VanValkenburg two minutes before halftime to make it 2-0.
Short finished with two goals and one assist. VanValkenburg had one goal and two assists.
Victor Mendoza and Caleb Todd also scored for the Blue Devils (2-0), who open play in the Delaware League on Thursday against visiting Jefferson.
Laurens 6, RS 2
Ryan Holmes scored three times to lead host Laurens to a Tri-Valley League victory in its season opener.
Ryan Crean, Bryan Segina and Carter Towers also scored for the Leopards, who held a 5-1 lead at halftime.
Joey Kelly had a goal and an assist to pace Richfield Springs.
Laurens travels to Milford on Friday.
Kyle Moorby scored in the first half of Davenport’s 2-1 non-league victory at Schenevus on Saturday. The Daily Star incorrectly credited the goal to Kyle Beang because of misinformation provided by the home coach.
Moorby also scored the winning goal in Davenport’s 4-3 overtime victory over South Kortright in the first round of the Stamford Mayor’s Cup on Aug. 28. The Daily Star incorrectly credited the goal to Nate Moorby, who graduated, because of a reporter’s error.
