WATKINS GLEN – The young but somehow extremely mighty Trojans boys soccer team of Greene have now climbed their way to a tournament championship and an unblemished record – after defeating Dryden at 4-2 in the finals.
Greene advanced to the finals of the GLM Memorial Soccer tournament on Saturday, September 16, after downing the host, Watkins Glen, at 7-0. On the other side, it was Dryden who knocked off Odessa-Montour by a tight score of 3-2.
The Trojans dropped Watkins Glen at 7-0, however, only could claim the 3-0 lead at the half. Hitting the hat trick in the win for Greene was Bradley Taft and Mikey Repp. Bobby Mills smacked in the final goal of the early game win – with Nick Shoemaker and River McCumiskey each adding one assist.
With the goalkeepers on either squad having similiar games – Greene's Kevin Gyurik having five saves and Watkin Glen's Garrett Bower laying claim to six.
It was the shots and corners where the offset of skill came. The Trojans had 18 shots on goal and one corner, while Watkin's could only muster six shots and six corners in the shutout loss.
G: 3 4– 7
W: 0 0– 0
Seeing a much more solid contest in the finals – Greene managed to fight through the Dryden defense for an evening with 10 shots on goal for a 4-2 win...
