The Sayre Redskin soccer teams dropped tough losses to Elk Lake and Notre Dame while Athens shutout Corning on Saturday, September 9.

Athens and Corning both took 5 corner kicks.
Jordan Rockwell scored 6 minutes into the game on a free kick for a 1-0 lead, but the Redskins couldn't complete the win. Kevin Valvano scored in the 26th minute and Alex Bradish scored 1 minute before halftime for a 2-1 Elk Lake lead.
Bradish scored halfway through the second half and Rockwell scored with 6 minutes left on a through ball from Alex Krall to complete the scoring. Camden Wheeler recorded 6 saves for Sayre.
"We didn't come out ready to play today and that really hurt us," said coach Randy Rockwell. "We played much better in the second half but couldn't overcome our slow start."
