Chazy girls tame Lions

LEWIS - The Eagles made the most of their corner kicks and rolled to a 4-0 shutout of Elizabethtown-Lewis in MVAC girls soccer Oct. 9.

Victoria Reynolds scored twice for Chazy, which held a young Lions team to just two shots on goal.

Caitlyn LaPier opened the scoring 11 minutes into the first half, taking a short pass off a left corner kick from Astrid Kempainen. LaPier fired a curling shot that sunk just under the crossbar.

Just a minute and a half later, Kempainen fired a shot from 20 yards out that Lions goalie Chelsea Provost deflected, but Reynolds found the loose ball in front of the net and tapped it in for the score.

The Eagles continued to pressure the Elizabethtown-Lewis defense as Kempainen was a catch-all in the center midfield.

"We did some great passing," said Chazy head coach Karin Trombley. "Yesterday we practiced a lot on crossing the ball and just putting some body part on it."

The practice paid off as Chazy went on to score twice more off corner kicks; first on a cross from Amanda Kempainen to Chelsea Guay, then from Guay to Reynolds for the header.

"Chazy's a very good team," said Lions head coach Steve Denton. "I'll be surprised if they don't make it to the state playoffs. They're very well-coached and very disciplined."

Elizabethtown-Lewis had one shining moment late in the second half when midfielder Emily Morris nearly got free on a breakaway. Katherine Tooke nabbed the save.

The Lions also got a solid performance from fullback Kylee Cassavaugh and forward Katie Decker. Chelsea Provost had 12 saves in the net.
