ELDRED, NY — Eldred coach Joe Rubino was proud of his team on October 20.

Despite their winless season, they played hard, especially in this final game of the season. The Yellowjackets were finally able to get the ball in the net against the Class B Sullivan West Bulldogs. Kyle Steimle had his first goal of the season on a penalty kick. Kyle Anthony had a pair of goals and Andrew Babula added another. Goalie Greg Fotiades recorded 10 saves and Nick Kalufas made 14.

The Bulldogs unleashed a torrent of goals, including ones from Ross Bernhardt, Jonathan Reynolds and Bill Nordenhold. Captain Mike Erlwein scored two goals and senior Greg Brewer scored three. Assists were turned in by Reynolds, Erlwein, Nordenhold, Garrett Owen, Jeremy Morgan and Bryce Copp. Both Eldred 0-11 (0-7 OCIAA) and Sullivan West 3-11 (2-9 OCIAA) failed to make the sectionals this year.

ELDRED, NY — Facing Chester (15-3) on October 24, the Eldred Yellowjackets (7-9) had an opportunity to play against one of the area’s premiere teams while looking forward to their October 27 sectional quarterfinal match against Chapel Field.

Chester, looking like a prime contender for the Class C title, got a pair of goals from senior Tonya Hipsman, who also delivered a key assist to teammate Katrina Cook at 27:01 of the first half.

Cook picked up the pass in front of the left hand corner of the goal and drove it home past Eldred goalie Allison Schombs. Cook returned the favor by passing to Hipsman who drove straight on for Chester’s second score at 8:36. Cook had a second goal in the first half with only 22 seconds remaining. Each girl scored another goal in the second half.

Hipsman ended her regular season with 41 goals. Chester will have to get by Tuxedo to take the Class C title. The two teams split during the regular season.

Hipsman, a top student, is actively being recruited by a number of colleges, including Adelphi and Manhattan.

NEW PALTZ, NY — Making the trip down to New Paltz (11-5-1) proved frustrating to the Bulldogs (4-14) as their season ended with a one-sided 7-0 loss on October 23.

Megan Bordino and Devon Ciliberto each scored two goals for New Paltz. More damage came from goals by Megan Salt, Jessica Pretsch and Jenn Phillips. Courtney Neenan and Maria Gonzalez each had a pair of assists. Other help came from Phillips and Kathleen Carroll.

Rachel Peloquin played goalie for Sullivan West, taking over for the injured Amanda Patterson who broke her foot in the last game against the Family School. Peloquin registered 10 saves. Kristen Stanmyer had no saves as their was very little action in the New Paltz end of the field.

Sullivan West will honor its fall athletes on November 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Sullivan West high school.
