Lake George soccer squad's Sectional quest ends

Schoharie 4, Lake George 2

JOHNSTOWN -- Penalty kicks spelled the conclusion of the season for the 2010 Lake George Boys Soccer team as they were defeated Nov. 3 in a Class C Section II semifinal game by four straight shots into the net by Schoharie at the end of two scoreless overtimes.

The two teams' talented defensive squads defense were enmeshed in the battle. Lake George's tough "D" lineup was especially busy, considering that Schoharie had taken a majority of the shots-on-goal. In the second half alone, Schoharie outshot the Warriors 8-0.

The scoreless regulation play concluded with 10 players from each team lined up for penalty kicks. Schoharie (16-3) blasted in four straight, but Lake George missed two of its four kicks.

Despite the score, observers said Warrior Goaltender Ryan Moll had a stellar game, with several important saves that kept Lake George in the contest. It was merely that the Schoharie kicks were expertly placed and lightning-fast. Moll finished with no less than 15 saves, to the Schoharie goalie's 3.

The Lake George Warriors finished their season 13-4-2 and champions of the Adirondack league Western Division.
