“Tonight we performed well as a team,” said Cortland Head Coach Luke Schweider. “We communicated with each other and worked hard for the entire 80 minutes.

Their communication was key to our success.”

Varsity Boys Soccer: McGraw vs. Madison

The McGraw Golden Eagles shutout Madison with a score of 2-0 in order to improve to a 4-5 record. 

“It was a great total team effort tonight,” said McGraw Head Coach Jamie Crumb. “We didn’t play a great first half, but created some real nice chances and knew that if we kept the ball on the grass and moved it like we wanted to then we would finally get a couple. Nolan was solid in goal as usual and Ben and Logan were more aggressive as we needed them to be. Our midfield won the battle all night and our forwards did a good job at applying pressure. We can still play better and I hope we keep building from this.”

McGraw’s goals were scored by Jaydon Basset (assisted by Jackson Pitcher) and Nate Stiles.
