Newark Valley 0
WAVERLY, N.Y. - The Wolverines got a goal from freshman Elle Nittinger 11:12 into the second half, heading in an assist from Danielle Burkhart to give the Wolverines the win.
"I think these close games will definitely make us better as a team," Waverly coach Brian Myers said. "Quite honestly, I didn't think we played great. Coming off a game last night it looked like we were a little bit tired. It was a nice win for us."
Having some of the younger players like Nittinger step up is big for the Wolverines.
"Our starting outside at the beginning of the season, she's on a trip to Scotland so we threw Elle in there and she's doing a real good job. Not only her, but Capria Picco and Zoe Mennig, they are both eighth graders and they are playing better than I expected as well. It was not one of our better performances, but we scratched out a win."
Waverly had three shots and two corner kicks in the game and Newark Valley had one shot and one corner kick.
Allie Frutchey had one save for Waverly and Molly Graves had one save for Newark Valley.
Waverly hosts Tioga at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
Newark Valley 3, Tioga 2
A Newark Valley goal by Kyle Williams with just 3:07 left in the game was the difference on Wednesday.
Newark Valley scored two early goals to take a lead, but Tioga fought back with back-to-back goals to tie things before Williams got the winner.
Newark Valley got on the board 3:00 into the game as Tyler Rypkema scored.
At 22:00 Philip Lindhorst scored for Newark Valley to make it 2-0.
Tioga cut the deficit to one at the half as Dan Layman scored at 37:15.
Just three minutes into the second half Tioga tied things when Jacob Evanek found the net.
Tioga had 20 shots and two corner kicks and Newark Valley had 14 shots and three corners.
Micah Gorsline had 18 saves for Newark Valley and Luke Hoose had 11 for Tioga.
"It's always a tough game with Newark Valley and this was no different," Tioga coach Jim Howey said. "They have a good squad this year evidenced by the squads that they have beaten and/or tied. We had a little difficulty getting started having only arrived at site 20 minutes prior to the game due to transportation issues and they were able to capitalize on that lethargy.
"We were much better with our communication and offensive posturing and I am excited headed into the second half of our league schedule. We have been in every game and look forward to trying to turn the tables on the results we have been achieving."
Tioga hosts Waverly at 4:30 on Friday.
