MADRID - The Dan Rose Memorial Tournament at Madrid-Waddington Central was condensed to a one-day Dan Rose Play Day event on Saturday.
But the excitement level suffered no drop as Colton-Pierrepont prevailed in both the Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys games over the host Yellow Jackets.
The Lady Colts, who are coached by former M-W Athlete Craig Bogart, won tale of two halves 3-1 and the C-P Boys scored in the first half on a penalty shot and survived waves of Yellow Jacket pressure to secure a 1-0 win.
The two schools also met in modified boys and girls action.
The games continued to be a vital fund-raiser for the Daniel Parker Rose Scholarship which is presented to M-W students who will be pursuing full-time enrollment in a two or four-year college. Since 2003 nearly $100,000 has been awarded to 85 M-W graduates.
A golf tournament is also held every August to raise funds for the scholarship that remembers Dan Rose who was a standout soccer player at M-W and Elmira College on an off the field.
"Daniel followed a road of his own creation and became a leader and role model to many on this journey, Those who loved him dearly created this scholarship in memory of a person who loved life, his family and friends, athletics, nature, music and community" reads the dedication in the play day's program.
"We decided to go to the one day format and the family was fine with it," said M-W Athletic Director Bryan Harmer.
"Things went well today. It is impressive how many scholarships have been funded over the years."
Following the games a Madrid-Waddington Soccer Alumni Game was held involving 40 players. The money raised from the registration fees funds a youth soccer camp in the summer.
"It is great to see the players come back and do this and help the program," said Harmer.
C-P 3 - M-W 1: Jaedyn Rutledge scored from Emma Clemo to give C-P a 1-0 halftime lead and M-W answered with a tying goal by Alexis Sullivan early in the second half.
Matty Lovely broke the tie heading home a cross from Landree Chamberlain in goal mouth scramble with 23 minutes to play and Chamberlain raced through midfield to convert a break-away goal assisted by Abeni Payne and Lovely eight minutes later.
"Dan Rose was my idol growing up so this is a great win for me and our team. We are very young with no seniors. Landree Chamberlain gives us outstanding speed," said C-P Coach Craig Bogart.
C-P's Natalie Butterfield and M-W's Emma Martin both played well in goal.
"We controlled the first half and moved the ball extremely well but just couldn't score. C-P deserves a lot of credit or the way they come on in the second half," said M-W Coach Justin Richards.
"We are a young team and definitely a work in progress. But we will get things together."
C-P 1 - M-W 0: Aiden Knight delivered 13 saves with any number of spectacular stops in the air and on the ground as the Colts prevailed over the Jackets who also hit the crossbar and post trying to break through.
"Aiden Knight is a tremendous goalie and also plays very well on the field. I went with him in the net today because M-W is just an outstanding attacking team. We played well today and very hard and got that early goal which was so important," said C-P Coach Bill Reed.
"And we got a few breaks today but that is just soccer. It was just a great win for our guys."
Tim Farns converted a penalty shot 15:32 before halftime for the only goal of the game after a foul in the box.
"Tim Farns is a very good offensive player and he put the shot away," said Reed.
Trent Lashua made seven saves for M-W.
"We knew that they always bring their A game against us but we just didn't execute our game plan well enough. We did a very good job with the possession game but we have to get better at taking the ball hard and converting inside the 18 yardline," said M-W Coach Ryan Robinson.
"Billy Reed did a nice job by putting Aiden Knight in goal today. He just made some outstanding saves. I said this last year that he is in my opinion the best keeper in Section 10. It just one of those games today where we outshoot them 22-4 but we just didn’t put it away. Then we commit a questionable foul and they capitalize. Our guys played hard all day again with Gabe Murphy and the defense but we just have to keep playing. We have a huge game on Monday to get ready for with Chateaguay. Always a big game with them another good coach in Teddy Martin so he will have them ready I’m sure. But hey, hats off to coach Reed and his team today, they just beat us."
