KEENE — The Beavers were just 45 seconds away from tying the undefeated Orange, but Morgan King connected to give Indian Lake/Long Lake the victory.

Both teams battled through regulation and the first overtime without a score, as each defense played strong.

With just 45 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Shannon Farrell intercepted a clear-out pass and found King for the game-winner.

“We played well. I would say that in the first half we had a bit of an edge,” Keene coach Fred Hooper said. “They picked it up in the second half.

“It was a well played game by both teams, unfortunately we failed to clear the ball and it went out to Farrell who passed it to King, and she turned and rifled it into the near post.”

Madison Miller collected the shutout victory over the Orange, making nine saves. Tucker Geiger turned away eight shots in a losing effort.

Willsboro 1

PLATTSBURGH — Peyton Falb opened and closed the scoring to lead the Knights to victory.

Falb capitalized on a mistake with 2:35 to play in the first half to give Seton Catholic the early lead. But Willsboro drew even on a nice counter-attack 10:30 into the second half with Kathryn Belzile poking the ball in the corner.

The Knights went ahead to stay eight minutes later when Maddy Murnane’s corner kick went over the head of Willsboro keeper Stephanie Blanchard and Clara Giroux one-timed into the net.

Falb’s second goal of the game, at 23:45, gave the hosts a 3-1 lead. Falb converted a through ball from Murnane, winning a battle with a defender in front.

“We needed this one. We hadn’t scored in a couple of games, so this was a big lift,” Seton Coach Jason Fenner said. “We’re young and not very deep, but, hopefully, this will get us going.”

Bridget Moran stood out in the midfield for Willsboro while Murnane and Shannon Egan played well for Seton Catholic.
