By John Bernhardt
For the Margaretville girls’ soccer team, adversity has only made them stronger. A promising start of the season (7-2) took a detour last week when the Blue Devils struggled to find the nets and dropped four consecutive contests. But, the flood gates opened on Monday as Margaretville scored early and often, downing Gilboa, 7-0.

The incident began when Margaretville player Cora Bruno collided with a South Kortright player and went to the ground with what was feared to be a head or neck injury.
