Waverly out shot CV, 15-6, and held the edge in corner kicks, 4-3.

Waverly keeper Zoe Mennig had five saves on the night.

"I think we caught CV off guard a bit," Waverly coach Tara Hogan said. "They were a very physical team, which is good for us to practice against. We had a great start with great speed. Our passing wasn't our best, but we continued to improve. Elle had a great game tonight. She worked her position very well. We tried some new things/positions tonight in preparation for post season play. Sarah Uhl had a great game at midfield and at center forward. Our defensive line switched a bit in the second half and they proved to work very well together. Gabby Picco tried her hand at center defense while Cora was moved to back left. The transition was smooth. This just goes to show just how much depth this team has and how versatile these girls are. For the girls to win this game, with this being our last in-season game, was huge for us."

Troy 4, Sullivan County 2

Four different Trojans scored goals in their non-league girls' soccer win Tuesday.

Nicole McClellan, Madison McClelland, Sadie Shedden and Riley McClellan all found the back of the net.

Macy McCarthy had a goal and an assist for the Griffins. Bethany Beinlich had the other goal while Madison Burke had an assist.

Watkins Glen 6, Tioga 3

On senior night the Tigers fell as three different girls found the back of the net.

Watkins Glen out shot Tioga 32-21 while both teams had four corner kicks each.

"On this senior night and last game of the season we came out in the first half flying to the ball and working hard to contain 20 goal scorer Hannah Morse," said Tioga coach Jim Walsh. "Our defense held her in check until the second half. Madison Howey worked exceptionally hard at the central defense position. But in the second half WG wore us down and started finding clear shots on goal. We made a spirited comeback to keep the game interesting but Morse's second goal iced it for Watkins Glen."

Walsh noted that they will be losing four key seniors.

"Tioga seniors Cheyenne Harkins, Audra Jaye, MiKayla Rafferty, and Emily Polo Rankin will be sorely missed," he said.
