Jon Goodnough comes through again for AuSable Valley


CLINTONVILLE — Jon Goodnough scored his second game-winning goal of the season to give AuSable Valley a 3-2 win over Saranac Lake in Northern Soccer League boys’ soccer play on Thursday.

Goodnough broke a 2-all tie with 9:25 left in regulation. Austin Facteau picked up the assist on the deciding goal, which came off a set play on a direct kick.

Goodnough also scored the winner Sept. 28 against Plattsburgh High in the Patriots’ only other victory this season.

Goals by Jacob Montefusco and Nate Casey gave AuSable Valley a 2-0 lead in the first 17 minutes of Thursday’s game.

Devin Cowan, however, brought Saranac Lake to within one later in the first half, and Jeff Stevens then tied it with 12:31 gone in the second stanza.

Facteau assisted on two of the Patriots’ goals. Josh Taylor made 10 saves in net for AuSable Valley, and Oliver Holmes stopped 10 shots for Saranac Lake, which held a 16-14 shot advantage.

“Taylor was outstanding in goal for us — it was his best game of the season,” AuSable Valley coach Bob Hamilton said. “He came out and stopped three or four breakaways.

“Casey was amazing at midfield — he was all over the place. And Goodnough came up big for us again.”
