Oxford 3, Unadilla Valley 2
OXFORD – Oxford’s girls’ soccer program took a huge step toward respectability Wednesday night beating Unadilla Valley for the first time in the program’s history.
Coming off a winless season in 2005, the Blackhawks are situated at 2-3 on the campaign. “We’ve always considered Unadilla Valley a solid program, and we’re extremely excited about this victory,” said Oxford coach Kathleen Cragle.
With under 11 minutes to play, Felicia Tynan gathered Katie Whaley’s throw-in and tallied the game winner. Katie Seiler had the tying goal in the second half after UV’s Jenn Convis gave her club a brief 2-1 advantage.
“We started out slow in this game, but we picked it up late in the first half and it carried through the rest of the game,” Cragle said.
Oxford plays at Sidney Friday.
