PORTVILLE — In the first meeting, the Portville girls soccer team needed overtime to get past Cattaraugus-Little Valley, 3-2.
“We had opportunities out there that we weren’t able to finish,” coach Jesse Archer acknowledged. “In the game of soccer, you’ve got to make it count when you get those chances.”
This time around, the Panthers did just that.
Ainslie Gardner set the tone by scoring three minutes in and the senior captain finished with a hat trick to key Portville to a 5-0 blanking of the Timberwolves in a CCAA East rematch on Monday. It was a strong bounce-back effort from the Panthers, who’d dropped a 3-1 decision to Olean 24 hours earlier.
“Today, we jumped on it early,” Archer said. “Right away, we just sort of had some confidence seeing that one go in early. We just kind of never looked back from there.”
Teagan Kosinki made it 2-0 in the 15th minute by scoring off a pass from Kendall Artlip. Courtney Lyle also scored for the Panthers (7-3-2), who received six saves from Faith Capito in a shutout effort.
Izzy Delamin turned away 13 shots for C-LV (4-10) in a performance that impressed Archer.
“She’s got quick hands and she’s not afraid to get down,” Archer said. “She always seems to have a handful of really great saves. She had a couple today, close quarters, where you just have to have that reaction and the hands for it, and she does.”

“I don’t think we played our best game,” said Olean coach Dan Freeman, whose team has won six of the last seven. “We moved the ball very well and we had 16 shots. The Dunkirk goalkeeper was rock solid though. She had great hands and I thought we would have more goals with the way we were shooting, but didn’t turn out that way.”
