RANDOLPH — The Portville girls soccer team closed the regular season on a 14-game winning streak Friday night and capped off a perfect CCAA East divisional campaign by defeating Randolph, 3-2.

Portville led 2-0 at halftime and stretched the lead to 3-0 just four minutes into the second half. Mia Welty and Courtney Lyle scored in the first half, the latter assisted by Olivia Dean. Dean added the third goal with a Meghan Lyle assist.

Kyra Pence scored twice in the second half, in the 18th and 40th minutes of the half, both times with a Mattie Evans-Brown assist.

Mackenzie Harmon and Cadence Zalwsky each played a half in net for the Panthers (15-1, 12-0), combining to make three saves.

Caitlin Park made seven saves for Randolph (8-7-1).

“Soccer is the type of game that can change quickly and Randolph has some very nice athletes and some great speed,” said Portville coach Jesse Archer, whose team had topped the Cardinals 2-0 in the first meeting. “We were able to score three times ... but they played a good possession game as well. So even with a three-goal lead we knew that they have some weapons. I think we were ready for it but they did a great job making a comeback and not giving up.”

Portville hasn’t lost since its second game, a non-league cross-section matchup with undefeated Section 5 power Fillmore.

“It’s a great feeling,” Archer said of closing out the regular season, “the kids are really excited and we know there’s a lot of teams out there (in Section 6 Class C) that are going to challenge us and we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.”


Cuba-Rushford/Hinsdale 2, Friendship/Scio 0

CUBA — Sophia Riquelme scored two goals just one minute apart midway through the first half to spark C-R/Hinsdale.

“This was a good effort all the way around tonight,” C-R/H coach Aaron Wight said. “Sofia scored two nice goals off of two good crosses and Elysa stepped in and played some good minutes for us at keeper.”

Nevaeh Ross turned away 10 shots for Friendship/Scio (3-12-1).
