Soccer incident prompts investigation of SKS by schools

By Joe Moskowitz
An incident during a girls’ soccer game between South Kortright and Margaretville last Thursday has the administrations from both schools still trying to find out exactly what happened and has also resulted in South Kortright Central School Superintendent Pat Norton-White issuing a letter of apology for the incident to the Margaretville girls’ soccer team and the school community.
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.

It was inevitable, simply a matter of strategic soccer planning. With Matt VanValkenburg doing almost all of the scoring for Margaretville during their first two games of the season, it was only a matter of time before the Blue Devils faced defensive alignments tipped in the direction of their senior scoring ace. That was exactly what VanValkenburg faced, a logjam of Windham defenders Thursday in a game that ended in a scoreless tie.
