TRUMANSBURG — State-ranked Trumansburg scored three times in the first 16 minutes of the game en route to a 4-0 win over Waverly here Monday afternoon in IAC boys soccer crossover action.
“The boys played well,” said Waverly coach Eric Ryck. “Our goal was to manage this game the best we could defensively, and try to create some quick transition opportunities.
