Greene's Driscoll reaches scoring milestone

Boys’ Soccer

Greene 1, Sidney 0

SIDNEY – Greene senior Alex Driscoll reaching a scoring milestone Thursday afternoon at Sidney. Driscoll scored the game’s only goal in the second half, his 26th of the season and 100th overall in his five-year varsity career.

“It was a typical Alex Driscoll goal, and he made another nice connection with Alex Leone,” said Greene coach Rick Tallman. “Sidney was packing the box with eight or nine players, but Alex was able to find that one seam.”

After getting a pass from Leone, Driscoll beat the Sidney goalie one-on-one from eight yards out. Driscoll is now one goal shy of the school record for goals set by Jordan McMullen in 1999.



The Trojans (12-2) play at Oxford Saturday.

Madison 4, Otselic Valley 3

SOUTH OTSELIC – Madison rallied from a 3-1 halftime deficit to edge the Vikings on Thursday afternoon.

Brent Rasmussen scored twice in the first half, and he assisted Hunter Grace to give OV the two-goal lead at the break.

Michael Best scored once in each half for Madison to lead his team’s comeback. “The second half was a completely different game,” said OV coach Justin Barlow. “Madison came out strong and scored on some counter attacks. We had numerous chances in front of the goal, and all were mishit or went wide. Our passing was good at times and at times the game resembled long serves from one end to the other.”

Susquehanna Valley 7, Norwich 0

NORWICH – Susquehanna Valley showed off its finishing ability under the lights at Norwich High School Thursday night in a shutout victory.

Travis Graham scored twice for the Sabers, one goal a nifty left-footer late in the first half that upped SV’s lead to 4-0.

“They moved well without the ball, and we spent a little time watching it instead of marking it,” said Norwich coach Steve Prime. “They definitely capitalized on the mistakes that we made.”

Norwich hosts Owego today at 4 p.m.
