AVON — When Tony Patti, Avon’s 11th year head boys soccer coach was asked following Wednesday night’s 1-0 victory over Cal-Mum, how he felt about this season, it was a simple response.
“I feel blessed.”
Sparked by Carson Williams’ direct kick goal late in the first half, Avon earned the season sweep over Cal-Mum this season.
It was Williams’ team-leading 15th goal of the year.
Avon defeated Cal-Mum 2-1 in their first meeting.
Avon keeper Christopher Kashorek posted seven saves for the clean sheet — his fifth of the year and third straight.
“This team makes me feel super proud,” coach Patti said. “They have all worked so hard to get to this point. They have put in the time and effort. We’ve had six football players join us this season and that has worked out very well. Those kids have made us better, both in games and by working hard in practice. They are all great kids that have really come together well as a team.”
The victory for Avon improved their record to 10-2 heading into next week’s Class C1 tourney which the Braves could get the No. 2 seed and a quarterfinal home game.
Despite the loss, Cal-Mum finished the regular season 7-4-1 and could also earn a No. 2 seed in Class C2 with a first round home game.
ATTICA 3, HOLLEY 3 (OT) Sophomore Simon Lamparelli scored all three goals for Attica during their GR tie with visiting Holley Wednesday.
Lamparelli scored twice in the first half and netted his hat trick after the intermission, his team-leading 13th goal of the year.
The game was tied at 2-2 at the half.
Attica took a 3-2 lead on Lamparelli’s third goal but Holley was able to force overtime on a direct kick from Nathan Nothnagle.
The teams traded good scoring chances during the two overtimes, but each goalie was up to the task.
Evan Dickhut dished out two assists while Andrew Newell assisted on one for the Blue Devils, who are 8-2-2.
Attica will finish the regular season at Wheatland-Chili Friday. Holley is 9-2-1.

Most nights, junior midfielder Reese Powers is in a giving mood with his Section V-leading 17 assists this fall.
