Yarmouth shuts out York 1-0

Max Coury scored his fourth goal of the season less than six minutes into the second half to propel unbeaten Yarmouth to a 1-0 win over York in a Western Maine Conference boys’ soccer game Tuesday night.

12, Yarmouth (8-0) handed York its only other loss this season with a 3-2 win at York.

“We play some real good teams, but (York) is the real deal,” said Coury, who finished a series of passes on a counterattack by sending a shot from the 6-yard line inside the left post after receiving a feed from Jack Jones.

“I thought our back line did a nice job of coming forward against some fast forwards,” said Yarmouth Coach Mike Hagerty, crediting backs Silas Chappell, John D’Appolonia and Aiden Hickey with blunting York’s offense.

With about 10 minutes left to play, D’Appolonia hustled back to deflect the ball over the end line to the left of the goal after the speedy Alex Nickerson beat goalie Cal Owen to a through ball to the left of the goal and sent a shot toward the wide-open goal line.
