Unatego 3, Norwich 1

NORWICH – After spotting Norwich an early lead, Unatego finished with three unanswered goals in Thursday’s contest at Norwich.

Gird Ceno scored four minutes into the game for Norwich before Jonathan Forte knotted the game 15 minutes before halftime. Nate Kafchinski and Jasper Humphries had unassisted goals in the second half for Unatego with Humphries connecting from 25 yards out on a beautiful one-touch shot. “I though we pretty much controlled the first half,” said Norwich assistant coach Adam Sprague. “We came out a little flat in the second half, and (Unatego) was able to poke in two goals.”

OXFORD – Matt Moore scored the first of his two goals early in the game to give Oxford the advantage, but Sidney countered behind a natural hat trick from Justin Charles.

Charles scored three goals in succession for the Warriors, who took a 3-1 lead into halftime. “It was a pretty back-and-forth game,” said Oxford coach Matt Dorman. “I told the kids that it looks like they are seeing the game, now it’s just a matter of executing it.”

Oxford plays at Bainbridge-Guilford Saturday.
