The Trumansburg boys soccer team improved to 2-0 on the season Thursday with a 1-0 home victory over Marathon in Interscholastic Athletic Conference play at Chris Bond Field.
The Olympians actually were the team to put the ball in the net, scoring an own goal in the 14th minute on a failed clear attempt by one of their defenders. The Blue Raiders were outshot (8-7) but held a 5-2 edge in corners.
Seamus Henehan earned the shutout for Trumansburg with five saves, while Kyle Young had three for the Olympians.
The Blue Raiders will travel to Southern Cayuga on Monday.
Dryden 5, So. Cayuga 0: At Dryden, five players had goals and Haile Cutter made one save to get the shutout as the Purple Lions improved to 2-0. Mike Harvey, Padraic Iannello, Jake Szapranski (assist), John Whitmore and Josh Hutchinson scored goals for the winners, while Ali Abel-Ferretti, Bruno Bugliosi and Jon Becker all had assists.
Dryden dominated in shots (20-1) and corners (7-1).
“We are learning very quickly,” Dryden coach Laszlo Engel said. “We played well and kept the ball in the attacking zone for most of the game. Our defenders kept the ball moving and quickly stepped in to win the balls in the back. We still have a ways to go, but so far we are definitely making good progress.”
