Class B

Jess Huber scored the lone goal of the game on a Kallie Villemaire assist in the third minute of the game as the unbeaten Beekmantown Lady Eagles scored the 1-0 win against the Lady Hornets of Plattsburgh High Nov. 4.

“We have worked well with each other throughout the season,” Huber said of her connection with Villemaire.

“I saw her open in the middle and I knew that if I could get the ball in that she would be able to finish,” Villemaire said. “We work good together.”

“Right from the beginning, this team started working hard and we try to concentrate on the basics of soccer,” Eagles head coach Erin Norris said. “I always tell them that I want a goal in the first two minutes. We have a pair of dynamic scorers up front in Kallie and Jess and they have compatible speeds and they work well together.”

Class C

Haley Brandes opened the scoring in the 17th minute, when she headed a cross from Mackenzie Kemmerer to open the scoring at 1-0 as the Lake Placid Blue Bombers scored a 3-0 win against the Seton Catholic Lady Knights for the Class C girls title.

Ayla Thompson then scored in the 47th minute on an assist from Brook Reid. Reid scored the final goal of the game for the Blue Bombers in the 68th minute on a Payton Barney assist.

Liz Leff made two saves in the championship victory for the Blue Bombers (11-4-2), picking up her ninth shutout of the season.

Shannon Olsen made 15 saves in the loss for the Knights, who ended the 2011 season with a record of 8-10-0.

Class D

Caitlyn LaPier and Megan Reynolds each scored two goals and tallied one assist as the Chazy Lady Eagles scored a 5-1 victory over the Elizabethtown-Lewis Lady Lions for their seventh straight Section VII/Class D girls title.
