Colby Diamond, Ollie Wasson and Aidan Spencer scored for host Cooperstown, which improved to 12-0 Friday, Oct. 8, with a 3-1 win over Hamilton in a Center State Conference Division III match.
Diamond got the Hawkeyes on the board quickly, taking advantage of a loose ball in the box less than 10 minutes into the game.
Wasson scored on a penalty kick with less than seven left in the half for a 2-0 lead.
However, Jake Wright took advantage of a missed mark in the box to get one back for the Knights two minutes later.
Spencer got the only goal of the second half, scoring from the 18 after a flurry of Cooperstown chances to make it 3-1.
“Hamilton always plays us tough,” Assistant Coach Lucas Spencer said, filling in for Coach Frank Miosek, who had a family obligation this weekend. “It is something about the names on the jerseys that always make this a tough game.”
Cooperstown (12-0, 8-0), outshot Hamilton (7-5-2, 4-5-2), 12-3, but the Knights had a 3-2 advantage in corner kicks. Finn Holohan had two saves for the Hawkeyes and John Hughes had four saves for Hamilton.
