The 2008 high school boys’ soccer season was a special one. It was marked by excellent play by all our area boys’ teams. The Andes Mountaineers fielded one of their strongest teams in years, had a winning season, and were a formidable opponent. The Roxbury Rockets were in the hunt for the Delaware Mountain Championship right up to the final week of the season. Margaretville and South Kortright were crowned Upper Delaware and Delaware Mountain Champs, respectively. The Blue Devils and Rams then played their way to the Section IV, Class D Championship game at The Soccer Hall of Fame complex in Oneonta, where Kortright was crowned champion in a hard-fought match. Likewise, The Delhi Bulldogs culminated a two- season run of 36-2 with their first Section IV, Class C Championship.
