Greene 7, Unadilla Valley 0

GREENE – Greene turned the tables on Unadilla Valley in a major way.

Losers to the Storm in overtime (2-1) last month, Greene scored five second half goals in a rout. “They showed up, but they just didn’t play well,” said Greene coach Randy Smith. “There was a little bit of a revenge factor on our minds, but that was a different team than the one that beat us.”

Shelby Averett initiated her first career hat trick tallying the opening goal at the 31-minute mark. Megan McDermott made it 2-0 at the break following up an Autumn Layton shot. Haley Burns had two goals and Layton added a tally for Greene (9-6).
