Tantalizing ‘C’ scape

Mr. Ubiquitous, Sullivan West’s Sawyer Erlwein, is off to the races in one of his numerous jaunts against Fallsburg. Erlwein ran for three TDs, threw for two more and returned a kickoff 100 yards in the Dawgs’ 59-6 league win.

In girls soccer, Tri-Valley recorded an unprecedented three ties in one week. After battling with Eldred to a 0-0 tie, they went on to a 4-4 deadlock with Burke and a 3-3 tie with Tuxedo. The latter was a league match up. Those games were 100 minutes each, as they included two 10-minute overtime periods. Junior Colleen Jones scored four of the Lady Bears’ seven goals. When asked whether the early week tie with Eldred was better than a loss, 35-year veteran coach Mary Feusner was lukewarm in her enthusiasm. “It’s like kissing your sister,” she quipped. Over her three-and-a-half decade tenure, she has never seen three ties in a week. Fallsburg 0-1 (0-6 OCIAA) lost a 2-1 non-league overtime tilt to Livingston Manor. Taking a momentary segue to the “B” line, Sullivan West’s girls lost 2-1 to Port Jervis and 4-0 to O’Neill. The latter was a league game. The Lady Bulldogs are 4-4 (1-2 OCIAA) as of this writing. Liberty 3-5 (0-3 OCIAA) downed Chapel Field 7-1.

The Liberty boys remain undefeated (7-0) following their 11-1 win over Chapel Field.

In cross-country, Sullivan West’s Kelsey Dutton (20:12) and Reed Scott (16:30) prevailed at a meet at Liberty on September 19. Sullivan West’s Dani Myers (20:20), Corinne VanWagner (20:26) and Courtney Meyerer (20-40) took second, third and fifth respectively. Tri-Valley’s Justin Weintraub (17:02) was second in the boys race, while Monticello’s Joe Klein (17:16) was third. Eldred was not present, nor were Tri-Valley’s top seven girl runners. The latter had turned in a hard-fought race at Bear Mountain just a couple of days prior.
