Willsboro In the first meeting of the season, the Willsboro Warriors and Elizabethtown-Lewis Lions traded goals in the second half as the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw.
In their Oct. 11 meeting, the only thing that changed was when the goals were scored, as the two teams again were unable to gain an advantage over each other in a 1-1 stalemate.
As in the first game, the Lions got the advantage, this time in the fourth minute of the game as Tyler White assisted Hunter Mowery on a goal for a 1-0 lead.
As the seventh minute began, the Warriors responded with he equalizer as Clay Sherman scored, as he had to level the first meeting between the two teams, to tie the score at 1-1.
The game kept the Lions two points behind the Warriors for the top spot in Division II with a 6-2-2 record (8-3-2 overall), while Willsboro remained unbeaten in divisional play with a 7-0-2 record (9-2-2).
The Warriors will face another test for their unbeaten record in division when the rematch of the year will take place this Thursday as the team travels north to take on the two-time defending state champion Chazy Eagles.
The Eagles scored a 4-0 win against Seton Catholic Oct. 11 in preparation for the rematch with the Warriors, improving their record to 7-1-0 in the league and 10-2-0 overall. Nathan Reynolds scored in the 39th and 48th minutes to pace the offense. Jordan Barriere assisted on the first Reynolds goal and scored the opening goal in the 29th minute (Nolan Rogers assist), while Brandon Laurin scored in the 68th minute. Austin Santor made eight saves for the Eagles, while Keagan Briggs made 16 saves for the Knights.
The Lions, meanwhile, host the fourth place team in the division, Northern Adirondack, on Thursday. The Bobcats were unable to keep pace with the top three teams in division II as they suffered a 4-3 loss at the hands of Lake Placid. The Bombers scored three of their goals in the second half, with Andrew Meister scoring what proved to be the golden goal in the 58th minute. Haile Thompson scored for the Blue Bombers in the 33rd, Ryan Meyer scored in the 45th (Miester assist) and Nick Colby scored in the 58th minute (Thompson).
