McGraw’s Aaron Conklin (8) and Jordan Cowen (23) chase after possession of the ball against Damian Rutan (10) of Cincinnatus, during Saturday’s battle for first place in the CCL standings at SUNY Cortland. Cincy won, 3-2, in overtime.
Showdown goes to Cincy
It was everything a rivalry game should be. For that matter, it was everything a championship game should be.
Senior forward Caleb Eaton scored his second goal of the game 1:56 into the first overtime session Saturday night as the Cincinnatus Central boys’ soccer team edged McGraw 3-2 in the latest installment of the teams’ annual Saturday night clash at the SUNY Cortland Stadium Complex.
The two teams came in tied for first place in the Central Counties League at 9-1, and the Red Lions’ 13th win in a row gave them at least a share of their ninth straight league championship.
Cincy, ranked fourth in the state among Class D teams, is now 14-1 overall while the Eagles, who are seventh in the latest state Class D poll, had a five-game winning streak snapped and are 11-3.
