  • MT. MARKHAM 1, LITTLE FALLS 0
    With a second consecutive Center State Conference East Division title already clinched, the Mt. Markham Mustangs defeated Little Falls 1-0 under the Veterans
    Memorial Park light Tuesday to complete an unbeaten run through the league.
    “It was a good game, a typical Little Falls/Mt. Markham game” Mt. Markham coach Dawn Yerkie said. “Some of the pressure was off because we knew we had already won the league but we still wanted to win.”
    Bryn Hoover scored in the first half for the Mustangs (10-1-2, 8-0-2 CSC East) who outshot their hosts 9-6 and had 11 corners to the Mounties’ two. Hannah Douglas made six saves in the shutout, including four in the second half.
    Hoover got a stick on a shot taken by Emily Buell and tipped the ball over the left leg of Little Falls goalie Kristi Torres. The goal came on one of six first-half penalty corners for Mt. Markham.
    Torres made eight saves for Little Falls (6-6-0, 5-4-0 CSC East), four in each half.
    Despite their deficit at halftime, coach Monica Tooley said the Mounties played between in the first half.
    “In the first half we were in synch on offense,” she said. “The ball was off one stick to another to another. In the second half it wasn’t that way.”
    Tooley praised the play of Rachel Demeree, Shelby Reardon and Sierra McCarthy against the league champions.
    Little Falls meets Morrisville-Eaton Thursday in the first round of Sauquoit Valley’s tournament. The other first-round game pits Sauquoit Valley against Mohawk Friday. The consolation game starts Saturday at 11 a.m. with the championship to follow at 1 p.m. Little Falls is the defending champion.
    Mt. Markham finishes the regular season with three games outside the division. The Mustangs take on Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Friday.

    SHERBURNE, N.Y. — Katherine Robertson made five saves Tuesday for Sherburne-Earlville and the Marauders shut Sauquoit valley’s Indians out 2-0.
