MAC Championship Game

Bainbridge-Guilford  1, Greene 0

ONEONTA - Like field hockey and ice hockey, dominance on the field of play and shots on goal can be overcome by the quality and efficiency of the opposition’s offense.

Bainbridge-Guilford, outgunned on the stat sheet, made the most of its four shots in the game scoring the lone tally in a one-goal victory over Greene in the MAC title game Saturday in Oneonta at Wright Field.

B-G dropped a 7-2 final to the Trojans exactly a month to the day of the championship game, but clung to a tight defensive alignment to limit the number and quality of Greene’s offensive attacks.

The Bobcats, who claimed their first league title in seven years, scored in the game’s 15th minute and Julian Pruskowski converted the game-winner off an Easton Porter pass.

Greene finished with a 13-4 advantage in shots on goal, and had 10 cornerkicks to the Bobcats’ one.

OXFORD - Back-to-back games on as many nights with just one substitute took its toll on Oxford as the Blackhawks fell to Delhi in their MAC crossover game on Friday.

Marco Shaw scored four goals for the Bulldogs leading the offensive attack.

Tyler Branigan and Zachary Finch also had tallies for Delhi.

Oxford’s bright spot on offense came from Killian Pohli. Pohli scored unassisted for his first varsity goal.

Blackhawks goalie Kayden Renfrow added 12 saves in goal.


Holland Patent 3, Sherburne-Earlville 1

HOLLAND PATENT - A little bit of bad luck to start the game got the Marauders off on the wrong foot as they fell to Holland Patent in their season finale on Friday.

A glancing header off an S-E defender led to an own goal and an early one-goal lead for Holland Patent.

Dan Carhart and Dylan McGuire added first-half goals for the three-goal lead at halftime.

Sherburne-Earlville goalie, Zach Trass, came out of the goal for the second half to play a forward spot. Trass made the most of his opportunity scoring his first goal of the season and only varsity goal, said head coach Mike Rodriguez.

“I’m especially proud of the character, integrity, and effort displayed by our team, whose play and sportsmanship was widely recognized and commented on by officials, coaches, and fans alike,” Rodriguez said.

Facing the Spartans for the second time this week, the Blackhawks surrendered three second-half goals in a shutout defeat.

“I’m very proud of the girls just for making it to the MAC championship game,” said Oxford coach Sierra Badger. “It’s something Oxford hasn’t had a chance at in forever. We will take the divisional title, and hopefully, next year we will get the banner.”

Unatego defeated Oxford 3-1 earlier in the week, and the outcome in that game was still in doubt until the final minutes.

Just a few days later, Unatego put the game away with a trio of second-half goals.

Leading 1-0 at the halftime break, Tatum Codington, Bailey McCoy, and Anabel Rommer scored goals in the first 20 minutes of the second half creating a four-goal advantage.
