Valley Sports Report
ODESSA — Tioga lost its starting goal keeper Gabrielle Foley to an injury just four minutes into the contest, and Odessa-Montour took advantage in a 9-0 win here Monday night in IAC South Small School Division girls soccer action.

With the win, the Lady Indians clinched the division title on their Senior Night.

“Our starting goalie Gabrielle Foley went out with an injury early in the first half. We played with 10 from there on,” said Tioga coach Jim Walsh, noting O-M also played with 10 players the remainder of the game.

“In addition, our starting forward Jenna Smolinsky played with an illness the entire game, so  it was all about just trying to survive and get out of there with our heads up,” he noted.

“We played hard and physical, that is all I can ask for in that type of situation,” added Walsh. “O-M has a very strong team.”

Autumn Garrison scored three goals for O-M, and Hannah Nolan and Tori Brewster each had two.

O-M had a 15-2 advantage in shots-on-goal, and a 2-1 edge in corner kicks.

Tioga, now 4-8, travels to Watkins Glen Wednesday.
