UV’s last-second goal forces tie

Boys’ Soccer

Unadilla Valley 4, Oxford 4

NEW BERLIN – Unadilla Valley lost a two-goal halftime lead, but scored in the final seconds to earn a tie with Oxford Wednesday.

Trailing the Storm 3-1 at halftime, Oxford’s Chris Parks scored a pair of second-half goals to spearhead the comeback, the latter goal coming at 32:20 to push the Blackhawks in front.

Raffi Perry took a cross from Andy Hayes and redirected into the net with seven seconds left to salvage the deadlock for UV. “Sometimes a two-goal lead is tough to hold on to,” said Storm coach Matt Osborne. “I don’t think we played with the intensity we needed in the second half, but I have to give our guys credit for tying the game.”



Austin Beebe and Kilean Maynard added goals for Oxford.

Perry finished with two tallies, while Shayne Wilcox and Hayes picked up goals. UV (7-3-1) visits Sidney Friday at 7 p.m.
