Greene 1, S-E 0 (Finals)
GREENE – A single goal was all Greene needed to capture its fifth annual tournament Saturday night against Sherburne-Earlville.
Luke Day ran onto Liam Allport's through ball, and Day was able to put away the one-on-one play with S-E keeper Keith Rose.
That was the lone instance in which the unbeaten Trojans solved Rose, who came away with 16 saves. "Rose had an outstanding game for them, and he made at least four incredible saves," said Greene coach Rick Tallman.
Greene advanced to the finals winning a hard-fought battle over Whitney Point, 2-1, Friday.
After a scoreless first half, Kevin Halsteter scored just 2:48 into the second half, and Scott Lord netted the eventual winning goal 12 minutes later.
"We struggled to produce a lot of quality shots in the first half, but we kept going, we focused in the second half, and I was impressed with that," Tallman said.
