Mountaineers stay unbeaten with win over Crown Point


OLMSTEDVILLE — An intense game was expected between two of the top teams from the Northern Soccer League’s Div. III.

And, an intense game is what was given.

Makenzie Winslow scored the lone goal of the contest with 25:50 gone in the first half to keep Minerva/Newcomb undefeated in its 1-0 victory over Crown Point Wednesday.

“This was an incredible, intense game,” Mountaineers coach Candice Gereau said. “Minerva/Newcomb fought hard despite the offense being double and triple teamed throughout the whole game.”

The Mountaineers led in the shot department, 11-4, but were only able to sneak one past Panther goalkeeper Amanda Wolf, who finished with 10 saves.

Astasia Myler (2), who left due to an injury, and Mary Labar (2) combined for four saves in the shutout.

PLATTSBURGH — Freshman Shae Frady proved to be the hero in the Hornets’ victory over the Indians.

Tied at 1-all, Frady snuck one past Peru’s Emily Lawliss with 18 seconds left in the first half to give Plattsburgh the victory.

“It was a great effort by Shae Frady to get the ball on her goal.” Hornets coach Tim Mulligan said. “We started the second half with a lot of pressure on Peru, but couldn’t get that third goal.”

Brooke Knight opened scoring with an assist from Sarah Duquette, giving Plattsbugh a 1-0 lead.

Lindsey Bushey tied the game at one at the 20:17 mark. Sam Spear collected the assist.

Frady then took a thru ball from Kaylia Carper and touched it into the net for the game-winner.

“We had to survive a Peru charge over the last 10 minutes,” Mulligan said. “The defense of Kelsey Senecal, Hailey McLaughlin, Kaylia Carper and Kasey Scors held tough.

“Lindsey Bushey was dangerous whenever she touched the ball.”

Alyssa Salls took the win in net with five saves. Emily Lawliss turned away six shots in the loss.

“We kept the ball on the ground a little better in the second half, which resulted in Ashley Carpenter scoring early on from a pass by Paige Spittler,” Knights coach Jason Fenner said. “Ticonderoga was consistently strong in the back for the rest of the game and did a great job of limiting our scoring opportunities.”
