Greene 2, Oxford 0
GREENE – Led by leading scorer Paige Wilcox, Greene (12-4-1) advanced to the second round of the Section IV Class C playoffs with its third win in two weeks over the undermanned Blackhawks.
Wilcox had a goal in each half raising her season total to 39 tallies. Her first goal came with 25 minutes left in the first half when she chased down an Oxford clear, and maneuvered past the Oxford defense to score unassisted. Nicole Tumminia found Wilcox on a long pass to set up the Trojans’ second goal at 20:56 of the second.
“Oxford has had a lot of injuries, and I think it affected them,” said Greene coach Brandy Stone. “But (Oxford) definitely had the potential to be good at any time. Playing them three times in two weeks, it made it hard, and they did well with the players they had.”
Greene plays at Elmira Notre Dame Friday. The Trojans lost to the Crusaders in the sectional semifinals last year. “They lost some players from last year, and we expect it to be a competitive game,” Stone said.

Newark Valley 3, Unadilla Valley 1
NEW BERLIN – Newark Valley jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 14 minutes of the game, and UV was unable to recover in Tuesday’s Section IV playoff game.
Kacie Cossin scored 7:09 into the contest, and Cossin added a second goal less than seven minutes later. “At the beginning of the game, my defense was off of their marks,” said UV coach Janelle Ross. “They’re usually right in a rhythm at the start of the game, but today they had a hard time getting started.”
