Oxford 3, Moravia 0

OXFORD - Oxford's girls' soccer team reached the Class C sectional semifinals for the second time in program history blanking Moravia, 3-0, on Friday night.

Coming off a tight 2-1 playoff win over Sidney earlier in the week, the Blackhawks were in control on Friday from the outset.

"We started off really strong, and were able to get two quick goals," said Oxford coach Sierra Badger, whose club improved to 12-6 overall.

Taegan Manwarren found the left side of the net off a Kaylin Tefft pass five minutes into the game, and four minutes later, Tefft scored following a Taylor Smith Feed.

Hailey Fleury had an insurance goal for Oxford with 6 1/2 minutes remaining, and again Tefft had the assists.

Tioga 61, Bainbridge-Guilford 8

TIOGA CENTER - Tioga did to Bainbridge-Guilford what it has done nearly every week of the season.

The unbeaten Tigers, the top-ranked Class D team in the state, had eight different players score touchdowns in a rout of the Bobcats on Friday.

Tioga (7-0) has had just one game this season decided by less than 20 points. Quarterback Caden Bellis threw for three touchdowns and had 137 yards passing.

"They're a very good football team," said B-G coach Israel Lorimer. "They're big, they're fast, they're quick, and they're the real deal for sure."

Tioga had 411 yards of total offense, and running back Emmett Wood led a balanced attack with 68 yards rushing and a touchdown.

B-G avoided a shutout scoring in the second half.

Nolan Hawkins hooked up with Declyn Marshfield on a 50-yard score. Dominick Johnson added the two-point conversion. Hawkins, making his first start at quarterback, threw for 110 yards, and Marshfield finished with 81 yards receiving.

B-G plays at Walton on Saturday.

Mount Markham 44, Sherburne-Earlville 0

WEST WINFIELD - Mount Markham captured its second win of the season scoring five touchdowns in the second half to run away from visiting Sherburne-Earlville (0-7) on Friday.

Shaun Jones rushed for 130 yards and three scores for the Mustangs, and Jordan Dietz added 127 yards rushing and two TD runs.

Leading the Marauders 12-0 at halftime, Mount Markham's Dominic Jones returned an interception 52 yards to paydirt for the three-score lead.

"We played excellent up to halftime. One mistake cost us a touchdown, but we played tough," said S-E coach Ed Holmquist.

Holmquist said he lost three key starters to injury in the first quarter, and none of those players returned. "We tried to band-aid the wounds and fight as best we could. We didn't have the horses."

Shaun Jones then tacked on a pair of TD runs later in the quarter to raise the lead to 32-0.
