SK Girls Top Downsville In Key DL Soccer Match

By Rosie Cunningham

DOWNSVILLE - The South Kortright and Downsville (12-1, 7-1) girls varsity squads faced off on Thursday, Oct. 4 and the Rams (13- 1, 8-0) came out on top with a 1-0 win. The match is very likely a preview of the championship Delaware league game which will be played on Oct. 13. Both teams came into the competition undefeated and it was a battle.

Both teams went back-and-forth during the game which emphasized hustle and defense.

Sophomore Lauryn Schmid scored the lone goal of the game with 14 minutes remaining on the clock. She took her shot from the top of the box and it deflected off of Downsville defender Emily Brown and into the goal.

“It felt really good to score,” said Schmid. “I was open at the 18, so I shot it and it deflected off of one of the defenders and went in the goal. I was really shocked but after we scored, we played a lot better - stringing more passes together.”

The Eagles who had seven shots on goal while the Rams only had two, fought back but could not find the back of the net.

SK goalie Jordan Finch had six saves in the win, while Olivia Brunner had two key stops for Downsville.

Thursday results in the Delaware League are, as follows:

Margaretville 3, Hunter-Tannersville 1

Marisol Flores tallied a goal along with Alivia Cordero and Kansas Shamro for the Blue Devils, while Madison Storey and Netalia Herrera provided assists for the winning team.

For H-T, Logan Iannelli scored off of an assist from teammate Peyton Legg.

Roxbury 7, Stamford 0

Roxbury’s Bella Poniros (two assists) and Alina Choinowski each had two goals to shut out Stamford Oct. 4. Teammates Emma Hynes, Leighla Lalosh and Courtney DeMaio, contributed goals as well in the win. Melanie Hoyt had 11 stops in the loss.

CV 6, Jefferson 0

Morgan Pierce, Amber Cargill, Kayla Kohout, Lexie Cobb, Kayla Beers and Aleigha Brockway each scored a goal for Charlotte Valley.
