Greene blanks Windsor to claim own tourney title

BOYS’ SOCCER

Greene 4, G-MU 1

Greene 1, Windsor 0

GREENE - Greene controlled play in the first half of Saturday’s Greene Tournament final against Windsor, and the lone tally scored stood up in a title victory over the Black Knights.

Kurt Bartholomew scored with 7:17 remaining after a crossing pass from Alex Leone. Windsor applied most of its pressure in the second half, and had a game-tying shot attempt by Noah Jones punched out by a diving Greene keeper Connor Moriarty with 90 seconds to play.

“They put the pressure on us, and Connor made a clutch save for us to keep the game from going into overtime,” said Greene coach Rick Tallman. “We played very well in the first half, moved it well and had control of the possession. Windsor made some great adjustments in the second half.”



The Trojans advanced to the final beating traditionally-tough, G-MU. Leone and Bartholomew split the four goals evenly, and sophomore Karl Zaengle added a trifecta of assists.

Greene (4-1) plays Walton on Wednesday.

Unadilla Valley 4, Afton 0

NEW BERLIN – It took Unadilla Valley 35 minutes to break through the Afton defense, and it proceeded to score three times over a 7 1/2-minute span that extended into the early part of the second half in Friday’s shutout victory.

David Schwab scored on a penalty kick with five minutes left in the opening session, and Colin Izard backed that up tucking in a rebound off an Afton misclear two minutes later. “The scoring chances were there for us early on, it just took a while to convert,” said UV coach Ryan Houck, who said that five UV shots hit the crossbar during the 80-minute contest.

Schwab scored early in the second half, and Conor Pope put away a rebound in the 26th minute of the second half to complete the tallies.
