Lions falls to Chazy at home

LEWIS In a tightly contested game between two top teams in the Mountain Valley Athletic Conference, the Elizabethtown-Lewis boys soccer team failed to score in a 1-0 loss to Chazy Oct. 3. There was plenty of back-and-forth action as the defense for both teams prevailed throughout the match. Chazy managed a mere 9-7 shot advantage over the Lions. With just under eight minutes in the first half, Jason Baker slipped an in-the-box pass to Stetson Fields, who fired the ball past goalkeeper Tyler Barton into the far top corner for the games only goal. Both teams continued to battle for possession in the second half. Jake Hooper and Michael Gowdy led an occasional offensive charge by Elizabethtown-Lewis while Baker and Shea Howley continued to set up shots for the Eagles. Barton had seven saves for the Lions while Chazys freshman goalkeeper, Austin Santor, logged eight of his own. We still need to finish, but overall our game is solid, said Lions coach Paul Beuhler. Im proud of the way we played. Our young guys really stepped up. Beuhler noted an improvement over their previous game against Chazy. Even though we gave up a goal, we defended well. [Chazy] is one of the best offenses in the state and we still defended well against them and created opportunities to score.
