Girls soccer Mustangs edge Westhill in OT

Filtch scores midway through second extra period

— Yet it looked like it would end 0-0 until, midway through the second OT. Dailey, working from near the right sideline, crossed to the middle and Filtch, in a sprint, moved past her defender, got the ball, and worked her way past Peebles to decide it.

Marcellus, who improved to 3-0 on the season, will meet Westhill again on Oct. 9, this time on the Warriors' new artificial turf field.

Westhill lost a narrow 1-0 overtime decision to West Genesee on Aug. 31. Then, in its OHSL Liberty division opener against Solvay on the Warriors’ brand-new artificial turf field, the hosts outscored the Bearcats in a wild 7-4 affair.

Neither side excelled on the defensive end, but it was Westhill inching out in front 4-3 by halftime and gradually pulling away as Solvay wore down a bit.

Maggie Tripodi gave the Warriors a three-goal hat trick, adding an assist. Nicole Easterly had one goal and one assist, with Emily Mizer, Grace Powers and Sam Toscano also converting. Tatiana Monds and Kelly Lippert added assists.

Solvay, in defeat, got two goals from Chelsie Delperuto, with Brianna Wiesczynski earning the other tally. Combined, Bearcats goalie Julie Gardner and Maria Leonardo combined to make 14 saves.

Westhill then rolled past Chittenango 5-1 to get to 2-1 on the season. By the time it had a 3-0 halftime, the Warriors were in full command as Powers, Monds and Lindsay Lippert all scored. Powers and Lippert tacked on second-half goals, just to be sure.
