Greene 7, Sidney 1
GREENE - Greene’s Kurt Bartholomew and Alex Leone had hat tricks against Sidney Wednesday as the Trojans won their seventh straight game.
One day after posting a 4-0 shutout, the Trojans ramped up the offense early scoring six goals in the opening half. “It’s hard playing back-to-back, but were were able to finish and we’re starting to put things together,” said Greene coach Rick Tallman.
Leone and Bartholomew have been particularly effective of late as Greene pushes toward a MAC showdown next week with Unatego. “Alex and Kurt are playing well off of each other along with Karl (Zaengle),” Tallman said. “They are controlling the middle of the field.”
Zaengle added the sixth goal for Greene (8-1), who play at Walton Friday.

Afton 1, Unadilla Valley 1 (OT)
AFTON – Despite being outshot by better than a 2-to-1 advantage, Afton forged a tie with Unadilla Valley Wednesday.
Ricky Parsons scored the tying goal for Afton (1-9-1) 17 minutes into the second half following a scramble in front of the UV goal. Just three minutes earlier, UV took the lead on Nate Shackelton’s unassisted goal.
“We knew (UV) had played Greene yesterday, so we made sure we took every opportunity to run them up and down the field,” said Afton coach Todd Dancesia. “Our defense held pretty well with James Westfall and Mark Viviano in the back, and our goalie Matt (Olin) did everything he could to keep us in the game.”
