IAC Boys’ Soccer

* Trumansburg 3, Marathon 1: Abreham Kittel scored two goals to lead the Blue Raiders (9-4-1) in their regular-season finale.

Jeremy Head scored the eventual winning goal midway through the first half, breaking a 1-all tie, and Kittel — who opened the scoring in the ninth minute — gave the winners some insurance when he converted a penalty kick with 13 minutes to play after Gabe Dell’Accio drew a foul in the box.

The Raiders had a 9-6 edge in shots, and Marathon had a 12-1 advantage in corners.

Sebastian Andrzejkowicz made five saves for T-burg, whose only loss in its last six games was a 2-1 double-overtime loss to undefeated Lansing.

Cody Morrison scored the goal and Kyle Young made seven for the Olympians (11-2, 11-1 IAC North Small), whose only other loss was a 2-0 season-opening defeat against the Bobcats.

* Dryden 4, Union Springs 0: John Czapranski broke a scoreless tie with just under 18 minutes to play, and the Purple Lions would tack on three more goals to pull away from the Wolves. Joe DeLucia, Mike Harvey and Greg Nostrand also scored goals for Laszlo Engel’s Dryden squad, which finished the regular season at 9-4-1 and now looks ahead to sectionals. Seedings are scheduled to be announced Tuesday.

Harvey, Nostrand, John Whitmore and Jon Becker had assists for the Lions, while Haile Cutter made one save to earn the win. Dryden outshot Union Springs, 18-1, and had a 6-2 edge in corners. Cody Halverson made three saves for the Wolves (6-8-0).

* Watkins Glen 5, Candor 0: Jesse Teeter had a hat trick to lead the Senecas (11-3) past the Indians (5-10). Kody Gregory and Colin Gates also scored for the winners, who got six saves from Tony Keough. Jordan Bartolis made 12 saves for Candor, which was outshot, 23-9.


* South Seneca 3, Trumansburg 0: On Wednesday in Trumansburg, the Section 5 Falcons knocked off the defending Section 4 Class C champion Blue Raiders in a nonconference clash.

Game scores were 25-14, 25-19 and 25-13. Tally McDonald had 11 kills and Cassie Wycoff 23 assists to lead South Seneca (10-4), and sophomore Hayley Sherwood led the Blue Raiders (9-4) with one kill, three aces, five assists and three digs. T-burg jumps back into IAC play Friday when it travels to Groton.
