Clinton men fall in OT to Broome


---- — BINGHAMTON — Kyle McCarthy’s goal with 45 seconds left in the second half forced overtime for the Clinton Community College men’s soccer team Saturday afternoon against Broome Community College.

But Spenser Nagle’s goal with 2:04 remaining in the first overtime lifted the hosts to a 3-2 win.

“It was frustrating for us to lose in overtime,” Clinton coach Gene Bushey said. “We got outshot, but we were hoping for at least a tie.”

The Cougars grabbed an early lead when McCarthy tallied his first goal of the game, with Alex Davison assisting, at 5:34 of the first half.

It remained 1-0 until the second half when Robbie Hoover tied it for Broome at 4:26 and then Isaac Leab at 34:21 to put the hosts ahead.

The Cougars, however, battled back to force overtime when McCarthy scored off a Matt Follett assist.

“I think we caught them off guard at the start,” Bushey said. “But once they got organized, they started to pressure us and began to dominate much of the game. Adam Goldfarb stopped a penalty kick in goal for us in the first half that kept us in the lead.

“They continued to dominate a lot of the play in the second half when they took the lead. But we made a great comeback to force overtime.”

Nagle, however, spoiled the day for the Cougars when he scored 7:56 into the overtime.

“He was at the top of the box and put a shot into the top corner,” Bushey said. “It was a great shot, but we gave him too much time.

“We still played well defensively, especially in the first half.”

Broome held a 27-9 advantage in shots and Alex Arbes made five saves in net for the hosts. Goldfarb finished with 18 stops for the Cougars.

Clinton will play Word of Life on Wednesday.

BINGHAMTON — Broome Community College scored three goals in the first half Saturday and went on to record a 4-0 win over Clinton Community College in women’s soccer.

Lindsey Aingworth opened the scoring for the hosts with 18:18 gone. Katelyn Simpson then made it 2-0 at 23:12 and Kelsie Gooding added the third goal at 36:25.

Danielle Tyrrell closed out Broome’s scoring with 2:51 gone in the second half.

“They’re a strong team,” Clinton coach Kaila Sciascia said. “They’re lost only two games in the region. It was senior day for them and they were amped up.

“We played okay. We played better as the game went on, especially in the second half.”

Courtney Backus was kept busy in the Clinton nets with 20 saves. Ariel Roys made just one stop in net for the shutout as Broome finished with a commanding 35-4 advantage in shots.

“We didn’t put enough pressure on the ball,” Sciascia said. “We gave them too much time with the ball. Two of their goals were scored on long shots where they were given too much time.”

The Cougars closed out their season with a road game on Wednesday at North Country Community College.
