OXFORD – On a cold, blustery Saturday, Oct. 22 fall afternoon at Emerson Soccer Field in Oxford, roughly 400 people attended the annual Chenango Cup Soccer Tournament.
In an emotional quadruple-overtime title game, the Unadilla Valley U12 team capped an amazing season beating Oxford 1-0. The victory avenged a loss to Oxford from earlier this season, UV’s sole defeat.
Scoring for UV was forward River McCumiskey (UV’s leading scorer) with an assist coming from Jessica Smith, who had five goals in the tournament.
“I informed the kids all season long that they are all representatives and reflection of the South New Berlin and New Berlin communities, our UV School District, their parents, and themselves,” said head coach Ganesh Remy Ramsaran. “I was very proud of everyone on the team for their sportsmanship, teamwork, and overall effort all season long. “
