Lewis The Chazy Eagles varsity girls soccer team scored on what was meant to be a cross in the 25th minute of its Sept. 13 game against the Elizabethtown-Lewis Lady Lions, giving them all the edge they would need in a 2-0 victory.
“I was trying to cross the ball,” Caitlyn LaPier said after the game. “It went off my foot kinda funny and curled into the goal.”
“Our focus was to score in the first 10 minutes and set the tempo in the game,” Chazy head coach Karin Trombley said. “We outshot them and had more opportunities, but their defense did a great job as a unit.”
The Eagles did not score again until the 80th minute, more specifically, eight seconds remaining in the game, when Hannah Laurin scored on an assist from Kinan Latremore on a two-on-one breakaway after a quick throw-in.
Amber Polomsky assisted on the LaPier goal.
Jennifer McGinn made 17 saves for the Lions, who had a couple chances to score, but were unable to take advantage.
“They are a very good team and we knew that our opportunities would be limited,” Lions head coach Steve Denton said after the game. “We did as good as we could possibly do against them. We pushed up towards the end to get some chances.”
Second half goal gives Indians win
Alexis Bushey scored from distance in the 58th minute, giving the Peru Lady Indians the advantage they needed after a 1-1 halftime deadlock against the Plattsburgh High Lady Hornets Sept. 13.
Ashley Carpenter assisted on the game-winner, while Kenna Agoney scored the opening goal of the game for the Indians in the 28th minute off an assist from Ashley Sardella.
Kiley Wilkins scored the lone tally for the Hornets in the 26th minute, assisted by Marle Curle.
