Wheelersburg 1, Northwest 0
McDERMOTT — Wheelersburg (5-0-0) continued its unbeaten march versus Southern Ohio Conference Division II competition with a 1-0 road win over Northwest (1-1-2) on Tuesday at Roy Rogers Field.
While the Mohawks were hoping to hold the Pirates following Saturday’s 0-0 tie with Minford in SOC II play, Wheelersburg did manage to squeeze one into the net with just 8:40 left in the contest.
On a set-up assist by Aaron Jolly, junior Braxton Sammons found the back of the Mohawks’ net to break the 70-plus minute tie that was nearing a draw.
After surviving a strong road test, Wheelersburg will host Valley on Thursday in non-league play, while Northwest travels to West for another SOC II contest.
Minford 2, Waverly 1
WAVERLY — Although neither team managed a first-half goal, the Minford Falcons were able to break the scoring plane twice in the second half — earning a 2-1 road victory over Waverly to improve to 3-0-1.
Zane Miller scored each of the Falcons’ goals, one coming with 27:43 left to tie the game at 1-1 and another shortly after with 26:06 left to give Minford its 2-1 lead.
Senior Skyler Knore assisted the first Miller goal, while freshman Sam Tieman assisted the second less than two minutes after.
Minford’s nine shots on goal nearly doubled Waverly’s five shots on goal for the game.
Minford will host South Webster on Thursday in SOC II play, as the Falcons hope to continue their unbeaten start.
Clay 20, Wellston 1
ROSEMOUNT — In their 20-1 win over upstart program Wellston, all the Clay Panthers managed to do was break a school record for team goals in a game and place their name in the OHSAA record books in several categories.
The 20 goals scored ties the Panthers for ninth place with Tri-Valley, Bluffton and North Olmsted in the OHSAA record book for team goals in a game.
Each of those previous 20-goal efforts came prior to 2004, per the OHSAA website.
Clay senior Jaymes Jones also became the 31st player in OHSAA history to record five assists in one game, tying him for 13th on the OHSAA record list for most assists in a game with a minimum number of assists to qualify being five.
Shaden Malone, Clay’s senior goalkeeper and striker who is a nominee for the MaxPreps Ohio HS Athlete of the Week after a 28-save and three-goal stretch during three games last week, scored a season-high five goals for the Panthers — while fellow senior Clay Cottle scored four.
Seniors Mekenzie Loper and Dylan Collett each scored two goals to round out the Panthers’ multi-goal efforts in Tuesday’s win.
Scoring a goal apiece for Clay in its state-record effort was Jones, junior Adrianna Deal, senior Evan Woods, senior Jaden Jessee, freshman Jack Holbrook, junior Liam Garrison and sophomore Alex Lands.
Clay will host Ironton St. Joe on Thursday in a key Southern Ohio Conference Division I match.
Jackson 0, South Webster 0
SOUTH WEBSTER — South Webster and Jackson drew to a scoreless tie in Tuesday’s non-league matchup hosted by the Jeeps.
It is the second time this season that the Jeeps have had a draw result in just four games.
“I guess the score wasn’t very exciting, but it was good to see the guys settle in and play a good game,” South Webster coach Corey Claxon said after the game. “As usual, this was a tough physical match, but that really does help to make us play better. We created several scoring opportunities, but we still haven’t been able to make that final push to finish. It’s something we will continue to work on.”
Jackson held a slim 6-5 advantage in shots, including 3-2 on goal.
Trae Zimmerman had half of the Jeeps’ shots, including one on goal with Connor Bender attempting the other.
South Webster will travel to Minford on Thursday for another SOC II matchup.
North Adams 4, Valley 1
LUCASVILLE — North Adams jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first half of its road win at Valley — the Indians’ first loss of the 2020 campaign.
Davey Petry scored in the 60th minute during the second half on a goal assisted by Bryce Stuart, cutting North Adams’ lead to 4-1.
Valley will travel to Wheelersburg on Thursday for another non-league game.
St. Joe 4, New Boston 0
South Point 5, Portsmouth 1
Wheelersburg 4, Northwest 1
McDERMOTT — The Wheelersburg Lady Pirates scored three first-half goals, and added an insurance marker early in the second, en route to winning 4-1 at Northwest on Tuesday in an SOC encounter.
The Lady Pirates, which are now 4-1-0 and 3-1-0 in the league, bounced back from their only defeat of the season —last Thursday’s setback against SOC leader Waverly.
Against Northwest, after an unassisted goal by senior Ellie Kallner with 24 minutes remaining in the first half, the club’s other senior —Laney Eller —added two tallies within a minute of each other.
With 13:34 to play, Eller was assisted by Annie Coriell, while Jocelyn Tilley assisted on Eller’s second at the 12:55 mark.
Tilley then assisted Eller only a minute and 47 seconds into the second half for the fourth goal, giving Tilley two assists and Eller another hat trick.
Defensively, Wheelersburg goalkeeper Brynley Preston posted nine saves.
The Pirates play next at home on Saturday against non-league North Adams at high noon.
