    Led by two goals from senior Brett Risi, Ilion overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit to defeat visiting Mohawk Tuesday.
    Golden Bombers starter Dan Ward was unavailable after picking up two yellow cards in a Sept. 17 loss to West Canada Valley, leaving Risi to provide the offense for Ilion.
    A goal by Mohican Tyler Kehl off a corner kick put the Bombers behind 1-0. Risi tied the game with 34:27 left to play in the second half, then provided the go-ahead goal at the 20:08 mark.
    “Our seniors showed great leadership tonight when we needed it most,” Ilion coach Jim Mott said.
    Golden Bombers goalkeeper Dan Colburn made 10 saves and allowed one goal. Pat Mills, in the goal for the Mohicans, had 12 saves and allowed two goals.
    Ilion is now 3-2-1 overall and 3-1-0 in Division I of the Center State Conference. Mohawk falls to 3-3-0 and 2-2-0 in league play.
    On Thursday, Ilion travels to Cooperstown and Mohawk hosts Frankfort-Schuyler.
    COOPERSTOWN 3, FRANKFORT-SCHUYLER 0
    FRANKFORT, N.Y. — Cooperstown remained undefeated on Tuesday, scoring three times in the first half and posting a shutout against Frankfort-Schuyler.
    Will Derouin struck first for the Redskins 11 minutes into first half. Kevin Huggins, playing with a cast over a broken finger, scored after a Cooperstown corner at the 16:29 mark, and Jacob Chase put a penalty kick past Maroon Knights goalie Fran Gaetani-Liseo with 9:37 left to play before halftime.
    In the goal for Cooperstown, Isaac Huntsman made five saves on the way to a shutout. Gaetani-Liseo allowed three goals and recorded nine saves for the Maroon Knights.
    Nick Sparagna had two solid runs at the Cooperstown goal in the second half. He was run off the ball once by a Cooperstown defender and the other time he got a shot past Huntsman only to have Huggins, a goalie himself when fully healthy, slide and kick the ball across the end line. Both plays resulted in corner kicks for the Maroon Knights but neither produced a goal.
    Cooperstown improves to 5-0-0 overall and 4-0-0 in Center State State Conference Division I, while Frankfort-Schuyler stands at 3-3-0, 2-2-0.
    On Thursday, Frankfort-Schuyler travels to Mohawk while Cooperstown will host Ilion.
