Warrior offense is proving itself

LAKE GEORGE In a competition that showed off their strength and versatility, the Lake George High School Varsity Soccer team racked up two crucial victories this week. Friday, the team faced off with Salem on their turf in Washington County. The Lake George Warriors scored in the first half on a bullet kicked from about 30 yards out by Will Matthews, who is rebounding from a year in which he broke his ankle. In the second half, Lake George followed with several quick goals which sealed the 6-1 victory for Lake George. Senior Toby Noble scored three, including drilling on past the goalie, chipping another toward the top of the net, and pushing the last one in during a skirmish with the goalie. Junior Casden Schweitzer and Sr. Brendan Dunn also scored one apiece. Coach Blake White said he was impressed by the play action, particularly the offensive work of Noble and Mike Kenny, both forwards. Noble and Kenny both drove Salem crazy with the way they created havoc with their defense, he said. Monday, the Lake George team played against Argyle, which was coming off a 1-0 victory against Hadley-Luzerne. In the effort, Junior Matt Cone scored his first varsity goal, followed by one kicked by Senior Robert Mastrantoni, who completed a scuffle at the opponents net. Noble took a shot which was blocked, but Mastrantoni popped it back in with about 30 second left in the first half. In the second half, Lake George owned the game as about 7 minutes into the 2nd half, they scored a goal followed by three more in the next 10 minutes. Lake George dominated Argyle in the 6-0 contest. The Warriors were on an offensive streak, out-tallying Argyle on shots-on-goal with a margin of 26-1. Last week, White identified offense as the critical element in his teams 2008 campaign. Monday, White said he liked what he saw onfield so far this year. Im glad everyones healthy and our offense is getting going, White said.
