PHS holds off Peru in OT

PERU — Olivia Carlsson’s goal in double overtime held as Plattsburgh High beat Peru 2-1 in girls’ Northern Soccer League play Friday.

Ashley Carpenter put Peru on the board 32 minutes into the first half off a header from a Lindsey Bushey direct kick.

With a one-goal deficit at halftime, Plattsburgh’s Adrienne Nye scored the equalizer from Brooke Knight with 11 minutes left.

After a scoreless first overtime, Carlsson fired a shot from 18 yards out to beat Peru’s keeper Shannon Bombard. Though the result wasn’t ideal, Peru coach Jackie Sullivan said she couldn’t ask for a better game from her players.

“This is a how a PHS/Peru game is supposed to be played,” Sullivan said. “Today’s game was very, very physical. Our defense held together and I was happy with our girls played with their individual matchups.”

Hornet keeper Karlie Neale collected 17 saves for the win while Bombard made 14 saves for the Indians.

Chazy 1, Elizabethtown-Lewis 0

ELIZABETHTOWN — Megan Reynolds scored with three minutes left in regulation as Chazy edged out Elizabethtown-Lewis.

After a first half possessed mostly by Chazy, Elizabethtown-Lewis evened out the play for the last half. On a throw in, Hannah Laurin passed the ball up field to Reynolds who beat a Lion defender and fired a shot to the upper right corner of the net from 18 yards out.

“We got outplayed in the first half, but bounced and made a run in the second,” Elizabethtown-Lewis coach Steve Denton said. “I was real happy with our defensive play. I thought Kylee Cassavaugh, Shonna Brooks and Crystal Grady had a good game.”

Logan Baker had a two-save shutout while Kearsten Ashline made 14 saves for Elizabethtown-Lewis.
