OTSELIC — A convincing 9-0 win over Cato-Meridian followed by a dominant 7-0 victory DeRuyter on Friday, Unadilla Valley’s girls soccer team brought home another piece of hardwood for the trophy case.
Last Wednesday, the Storm faced Cato-Meridian in the opening match of the First Annual Otselic Valley Varsity Soccer tournament.
Kyleigh George opened up UV’s scoring clinic on an assist from Julia Oglesby. UV’s Shelby Meade then recorded the next two goals for her team to add to the total.
Cearah DaCostafaro found the back of the net on a ball from George for goal number four by the Lady Storm.Oglesby wanted in on the scoring action next as she fired a shot past Cato-Meridian’s keeper Meghan McCarthy.
McCarthy was shot at 25 times by Unadilla Valley, stopping 19 on the evening.
The last goal recorded by a UV player was from Paige Catena, giving the Storm a total of six goals from 5 different players.
Cato-Meridian added three goals on to UV’s final score as their defensive mishaps caused the ball to go into their own net each time.
The second game of the girls double header on Wednesday, September 20, was the Lady Vikings against DeRuyter. A matchup that has happened already once this season, DeRuyter took down the host Vikings with a score of 3-1.
In a well-played game by both side, OV’s lone goal would come on a PK from Jessica Comfort.
The Lady Vikings did create 13 shot opportunities through the contest but couldn’t finish on any of them – an MO on the season for Otselic Valley...
