At 20:13, Saranac’s Summer Gillespie had the eventual game-winner when she found some space way outside the 18-yard box and sailed a shot over Paola’s head into the net.
“I realized I had enough space to take a shot, so I tried to get it off and hoped it went in,” Gillespie said.
With just over 11 minutes left in the game, Gillespie added the final dagger on a beautiful header off a corner from Amy LoTemplio.
“Me and Amy really worked on it, and really tried to get that down,” Gillespie said. “I give that one to Amy.”
“I liked the head goal,” Mary LoTemplio added. “I think Summer is a creative and very strong player.”
Paola finished the game with seven saves, while Favreau ended with six.
“Christina Paola played a strong game in net,” Surprenant said.
The Chiefs will try to keep their winning streak alive Tuesday against Peru, while NCCS isn’t back in action again until Thursday, when it heads to Beekmantown.

ELIZABETHTOWN-LEWIS 2, LAKE PLACID 1
LAKE PLACID — Lily Whalen scored the game-winning goal in the Lions’ upset of the Blue Bombers.
All the game’s scoring was done in the first half.
Jasmin Barnes put Elizabethtown-Lewis ahead at the 19:56 mark, but Sam Barney drew Lake Placid even at 26:22.
Whalen, however, tallied less than a minute later, at 27:17, to put the Lions back in front — this time to stay.
Lake Placid held an 18-7 advantage in shots. Emma Disogra was busy as she turned away 17 shots in the Lions’ nets, while Emily Barney made four saves for the Blue Bombers.
“The Elizabethtown-Lewis goalie played a great game and saved some tough shots,” Lake Placid coach Heather Brewer said. “They were able to capitalize on their scoring chances.”
