LAKEWOOD — Max Kinkela scored in the 75th minute and the Fredonia Hillbillies and Southwestern Trojans played to a 1-1 double-overtime tie to open up CCAA boys soccer divisional play on Tuesday.

After a scoreless first half, Chase Stevenson put the Trojans (0-0-1, 4-0-1) ahead in the 54th minute. Kinkela evened the score for the Hillbillies (0-0-1, 0-2-1) off a pass from Michael Berg. Marcus Seastedt was in goal for Fredonia and recorded seven saves.

“Both teams had opportunities,” Fredonia coach Jim Rush said. “Southwestern is a good team and well coached and we knew we were in for a tough game. Credit goes to both teams for playing hard throughout the game.”

Fredonia is back in action Saturday morning at Cassadaga Valley/Falconer at 10 a.m. The game is scheduled to take place at Cassadaga Valley High School.

Maple Grove 4, Silver Creek/Forestville 0

SILVER CREEK — The Maple Grove Red Dragons kept on rolling this season with a dominant 4-0 win over the Silver Creek/Forestville Black Knights in a league matchup of varsity boys soccer on Tuesday.

Caleb Foley scored the first goal of the game for Maple Grove, 15 minutes into the contest, assisted by Jack Novotny. In the 34th minute, Tristan Spillane found the back of the net, also assisted by Novotny. Foley added another goal — his seventh on the season — later in the match. The Red Dragons finished off the scoring on a cross from Foley, headed in by freshman Sam Eimiller for his first varsity goal.

“That was exciting,” said Maple Grove head coach Cara Abbey.

Silver Creek/Forestville (0-2-1, 0-2) may have allowed four goals in the contest, but it could have been a lot more. Goalkeeper Jeremey Wilcox had 14 saves in the match for the Black Knights. Sam Cummings had the shutout for Maple Grove, with help from Zeke Olson on defense.

After seven goals in four games, Foley now sits only two shy of his total from a year ago. Abbey stated, “He’s playing fantastic.”

Maple Grove (4-0, 1-0) plays another league match on Thursday against Frewsburg at home, while Silver Creek/Forestville heads to Pine Valley on Thursday.
