ONEONTA —Unadilla Valley looked to make their already great season even better Saturday, when they played in the MAC Conference Championship game against the undefeated Bulldogs of Delhi.
And they did just that, handing Delhi their first loss of the season at the perfect time, bringing home the MAC title in a close 2-1 victory, claiming their second MAC championship in three years.
Delhi struck first at the 27:58 mark left in the first half when Olivia Wakin let her shot fly shot. UV goaltender Meegan White couldn’t stop the Wakin shot, giving the Bulldogs an early 1-0 lead.
The lead didn’t last long as Kyleigh George of the Storm carried the ball down the right sde of the field. When she found her opportunity, George ripped it into the back of the night, past the Bulldogs goalie Kaitlynn Finch, tying it at apiece.
The game went into the intermission with the 1-1 tie.
