OFA swimming, soccer, vball teams win


OFA’s Boys Soccer, Girls Swimming and Girls Volleyball teams combined to post a home trifecta in Monday’s NAC action.

The soccer team remained undefeated in NAC Central play and did its part to create a match of unbeatens at Canton on Thursday with an 8-0 win over Gouverneur.

Canton gained a matching 4-0 Central mark with a 6-0 win over Salmon River. Massena dropped Northwood Prep 1-0 in a nonleague game.

The Devil swimmers climbed to 3-0 on the season downing Salmon River 122-41 in their home opener. The volleyball squad climbed to 5-1 with its fifth straight victory in a 25-19, 25-11, 25-17 interdivision victory over Tupper Lake.


The Devils struck for five goals in a seven-minute span starting with Peyton Lalone’s tally off a Conor Hannan assist in the 13th minute. Dave Prudhomme and Matt Piercey followed with unassisted tallies and Dillon “Rudy” Binion followed with goals off assists from Lalone and Piercey.

Lalone set up Hannan 13 minutes into the second half and Andrew Roddy set up Hayden Woods and Zach Ashley to round out the scoring in support of Jake Sias’ six-save shutout. Tom Andrews handled 13 shots for Gouverneur.

“We moved the ball very well today and our reserves played very well again. Hayden Woods moved into the midfield and scored his first varsity goal. Zach Ashley scored a very nice first varsity goal and Andrew Roddy picked up two assists” said OFA Coach Matt Morley.

“Canton will be a tough game on Thursday. They pass the ball very well. Gouverneur played very hard today and never gave in despite the score. They didn’t have their starting goalie who is excellent.”

OFA JV’s 2 - M-W 1: Ben Hammond scored the winning goal from James Wing with just 50 seconds remaining in the game to lift the Devils past M-W. Wing also gave the Devils a 1-0 lead off an pass from Dylan Jock 2:51 into the game.

Justyn McCormick stopped seven shots in goal to cap a fine overall team effort according to OFA Coach Jim Howard.

Will Kroeger, Matt Ramm, Lance Ladouceur, Alex Sias, Dominic Molinari and Jock combined on a stellar defensive effort while Max Ahrens, Josiah Fifield, Matt Sholette and Connor Ward formed a very effective midfield combination.

Noah Moore and Nolan Rishe turned in fine two-way efforts on the front line.


The Lady Devils swept all 11 first places and took nine of 11 seconds climbing to 3-0 in preparation for a home meet against Massena on Friday.

Susie Morrow and Julia Mullin led the way participating in four first places. They both swam on the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays; Morrow soloed to victory in the 100 butterfly and backstroke and Mullin led the 50 and 100 freestyle races.

Also participating in multiple wins were: Natalie Perrigo (200 Medley Relay, 200 Freestyle Relay, 200 Individual Medley), Hunter Shaver (200 Medley Relay, 200 Freestyle Relay, 100 Freestyle), Claire Dufore (200 Freestyle, 400 Freestyle relay) and Maddie Bresett (500 Freestyle, 400 Freestyle Relay).

Megan Mills and Chelsea Montroy rounded out the winning 400 freestyle relay team.

Rounding out individual 1-2 finishes were: Montroy (200 IM, 500 FS), Mills (50 FS), Shaver (100 FS), Hayley Snodgrass (100 Backstroke) and Perrigo (100 Breaststroke)

“Claire Dufore swam a very strong 200 Freestyle for us. Her work ethic is outstanding and Julia Mullin swam very well leading the sprints,” said OFA Coach Ben Fleahman who will have his 3-0 team at home on Friday to host Massena.

“I am really proud of the efforts of all the girls. We only have 13 swimmers and they have all adjusted to the demands.”

Caroline Russell took second in the 200 Freestyle and 100 Butterfly for Salmon River.


Taylor Perry (6 points, 2 aces, 3 kills) and Emma Hart (10 points, 3 aces, 4 kills) combined for 21 and 10 assists directing a very aggressive offensive outing for OFA.

“The girls set some goals tonight and one was to attack everything they played back to us. Taylor Fisher had a big blocking night but only scored off one because Tupper Lake covered the hitters well,” said OFA Coach Sue McLean.

“With two quality setters like Taylor Perry and Emma Hart we were able to set up a huge amount of offense. Adrianna Compo (14 points, nine aces, 3 kills) got us started with a long serving string in the first game and she made great defensive plays all night.”

The trio of Sky Hoover (9 kills, 6 points, 1 ace, 4 digs), Taylor Fisher (8 kills, 3 points, 2 aces, 1 block) ad Paige Perry (7 kills, 2 kills,) led the finishing at the net for OFA which visits Brushton-Moira on Wednesday and Chateaugay Friday.

Rounding out the OFA effort were: Jessie Logan (3 digs), Grace Mashaw (1 point), Kiersten Morrow (1 kill) and Jennie Dalton (1 kill).

In other NAC Volleyball action Malone swept Madrid-Waddington 3-0 and Salmon River downed Gouverneur 3-0. The Jackets lost 25-7, 25-16, 25-16. The Shamrocks won 25-9, 25-13, 25-12.
