NCCS 2, Saranac Lake 0
SARANAC LAKE - In one of the few CVAC boys soccer matches not postponed due to weather Oct. 1, the Red Storm could only hold off Northeastern Clinton for so long.
Saranac Lake battled the Cougars to a zero-all tie through the first half, thanks in large part to the strong defensive efforts of Pat McHugh and goalkeeper Ricky Schmidt, who finished with 11 saves.
Jamie Davison finally gave NCCS the lead nine minutes into the second half, however. Dylan Carter would add the insurance goal with three minutes left. Both were assisted by Logan Miller.
The Cougars finished with a 24-6 shot advantage.
