RANDOLPH — Paul Catarina’s unassisted tally with 20 minutes left in regulation was all that the Allegany-Limestone boys’ soccer team needed to remain undefeated for the season after a 1-0 decision over Randolph in a Chautauqua Cattaraugus East Division contest on Thursday.
Dom Conroy recorded 11 saves to preserve the shutout as the Gators (7-0) handed Randolph its first loss of the season.
Nick Carpenter stopped 19 shots for the Cardinals (3-1-1).
The outcome broke a tie for first place in the league standings.
“Both teams played well,” A-L coach Jon Luce said. “I think both teams had their share of ups and downs with a lot of momentum shifts.
“I think we are playing real solid right now. We hit the post three times in the first half.”
West Valley 2, Portville 1
PORTVILLE — Austin Wierzba scored one goal and assisted on a game-winning header by Patrick Enser with 21 minutes left to lift West Valley (3-3-1) in a come-from-behind win on the road.
Matt Proctor had an assist and Jon Zimmer preserved the win with 15 saves.
Jack Hilyer scored on a pass from Brandon Morrow and Al Nothem made 20 saves for Portville ().
“This was a complete team effort,” West Valley coach Kris Fuller noted. “We were down at half and instead of giving up, we fought back and put pressure on the entire second half.”

T.J. Magro added his team-leading seventh marker of the season while Collin Charles posted two assists for the Huskies (4-4, 2-2). Jared McLaughlin and Ryan Mikalojcyzk combined to stop two shots in the win.
“We’ve played all of our victories the exact same way as our losses,” OHS coach Jim Charles pointed out. “It’s just when we lose, we’re having trouble finding the net. We’re going to have to be able to find it against the top teams.”
Nyle Bird scored while Nick Mole made nine stops for Frewsburg.
Cattaraugus-LV 2, Silver Creek/Forestville 1
SILVER CREEK — One year ago, Cattaraugus-Little Valley traveled to Silver Creek and, despite leading early in the game, came away on the losing end of a 2-1 score.

“We just seemed to play with better focus today.”
