Clinton, North Country men fall in soccer


The visitors then upped their lead to 3-0 on Dave Firenze’s goal at 23:44 of the second half.

The Saints (7-5) avoided the shutout when Emerson Mentor tallied unassisted with 18:29 left in regulation.

Onondaga held a 7-4 shot advantages and Ty Downes made three saves in net for the win. Beau Standford stopped four shots for North Country.

Saints’ coach Adam diVincenzo wasn’t happy with the outcome.

“We didn’t play well,” he said. “I’m not impressed with the way we’ve been playing of late.”

North Country returns to action on Monday with a 4 p.m. home contest against Jefferson Community College.
