Sherburne-Earlville 3, Sauquoit Valley 1
SAUQUOIT – Sherburne-Earlville rebounded from a league loss earlier in the week to beat Sauquoit Valley on the road Thursday.
The Marauders, who lost their starting goalie and sweeper to injury, overcame those misfortunes to grab a 2-1 halftime lead.
“Sauquoit Valley always has a good program, and with our injuries, I was concerned,” said S-E coach Sheila Cooman. “There were times they put pressure on us, but I felt we controlled the game. We moved the ball and passed it extremely well.”
Courtney Jaspar scored her first varsity goal at 8:25 of the first half, and Karli Harris upped the S-E lead to 2-0 just over two minutes later. Samantha Crandall tacked on an insurance goal after SV had closed the margin to one.
The Marauders host Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Saturday at 3 p.m. in the finals of the S-E Field Hockey Tournament.

Greene 1, Vestal 0 (OT)
VESTAL – Vestal was not the same team that was blown out 4-0 earlier in the week against Maine-Endwell.
The unbeaten Trojans needed sudden-victory overtime to extend its mark to 5-0 on the season, Thursday on the road. “Their defense was very good, and (Vestal) plays much better on the turf,” said Greene coach Sue Carlin. “We tried some different (lineup) combinations, and the second half was played more in our offensive end.”
The end came just 2:45 into the extra period on a perfectly executed penalty corner. Andrea Day made the initial pass to Christine Conroe, who stopped and blasted the ball into the cage.
The Trojans host Maine-Endwell Tuesday.
goal came at 7:15 left after penalty corner... pass and shot.
