Chazy 4, Northern Adirondack 2

ELLENBURG — Chazy jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first seven minutes of the game and held on for a victory in the completion of a Sept. 11 suspended game.

The contest was stopped with 10:16 remaining in the first half with the Eagles holding a 3-2 advantage. The remainder of the game was played on Thursday.

Goals by Alec Lapierre, Gage Ducatte and Josh Barriere gave Chazy an early 3-0 lead before Alden Kerr and Cory LaFountain tallied for the Bobcats later in the half to bring it to within 3-2.

Barriere scored the lone goal in the second half on a penalty kick.

Trent Blais made five saves in the Chazy nets, and Ethan King had nine stops for Northern Adirondack.

“Both teams played hard defensively and found scoring difficult in the second half,” Northern Adirondack coach Pat Kelleher said. “All in all, it was a well-played game that was fun to watch.”
