G-MU 3, Schenevus 2
COPES CORNERS – Gilbertsville-Mt. Upton built a 2-0 lead, and survived a wild final 10 minutes to advance in the Section IV, Class D playoffs Tuesday.
Corin Todd’s goal four minutes into the second half lifted the Raiders (10-2-4) to a two-goal lead. That advantage held until the 8:25 mark when the Dragons’ Evan Dulkis connected on a shot from just inside 18 yards. Todd was able to respond for the Raiders less than a minute later. He gathered a pass from DeMario Reed, and despite getting taken down from behind, pulled himself up to tally at 7:41.
“We pretty much dominated the first 71 minutes of the game,” said Raiders coach Mark Luettger. “The response we had after their first goal was pretty awesome.”
The Raiders gave up a goal on a Schenevus cornerkick – the first goal given up on a corner all season – at the 5:59 mark. Schenevus did not threaten to score again.
