Pride abides

Liberty’s Marshon Williams, right, and Anthony Covington, bedecked in mud following their season-saving 25-6 win over Ellenville, lead the line for the handshake at the end of the night. The win sets up a do-or-die game for both the Indians and Sullivan West on the Oct. 6 Homecoming in Lake Huntington, NY.

In boys soccer, Eldred got second-half goals from Brian Hazen and Peter Vorstadt to hold off visiting Tri-Valley for a key Division V win after T-V’s Tyler Greffrath had knotted the game at one apiece. Vorstadt regained the lead and keeper Travis Steimle deflected a last-second shot by T-V’s Anthony Beale onto the crossbar.

In a non-league football game under the lights, Eldred (2-2) pulled off an impressive 14-6 win over the 1-3 Tri-Valley Bears, as Tyler Knapp scored on a nine-yard sweep in the game’s third overtime period and Anthony Margarum added the conversion run. T-V was stopped on four plays to end the game. Regulation had ended in a scoreless tie and both teams scored TDs and failed on conversions in the first OT to tie it up again. Eldred’s defense had the last word. Eldred heads to O’Neill this weekend for a non-league title while the Bears, who are 1-0 in Class C Division II, host division rival undefeated Burke. Burke beat T-V in last year’s semifinal round of the playoffs.

Monticello’s football team beat Saugerties 34-6 after losing to Cornwall 52-7 the week before. The Monties (2-2, 1-1 Class A) travel to Wallkill (3-1, 2-0 Class A) for a key league game this Friday night in a battle of the Panthers. Wallkill beat Cornwall Friday night, reminiscent of their playoff win over the Green Dragons a year ago.
