Two ships passing in the night

Eldred downs T-V in shortened game as Lenae Kelty nets five goals

By Richard RossELDRED - On a very chilly night on a muddy, rain-soaked field, host Eldred and Tri-Valley went at it for 40 minutes before officials declared, “enough!” By that time Eldred had already amassed a 6-0 lead on its Senior Recognition Night improving to 9-3 and dispatching Tri-Valley to its season finish at 3-9-1.
While Eldred sets sail for regional play having won Section IX Class D by default, Tri-Valley heads to port, its season over and its players already thinking about winter sports.
For Eldred seniors Kelsey Morgan, Taylor McNeill, Hannah Jennings, Hunter Finck, Hailee Kolvenbach and Mickaela Gulla, this was a fun night to close out the regular season. Eldred won the Section IX Class D title as Livingston Manor failed to qualify. It marks the sixth consecutive year that the Lady Yellowjackets are Section IX champions. They will play a regional game on November 3 against an opponent yet to be named. Lenae Kelty was on fire, netting five of the sixth goals with the last one coming on a kick from 40 yards out. That was a stunner. It was the most goals Kelty has scored in any game in her career.
Hailee Kolvenbach netted the other goal off a rebound from a penalty kick more
