Amelia Jenks' OT goal gives Chiefs win over Cougars


SARANAC — Amelia Jenks’ goal with three minutes remaining in the second overtime period helped Saranac to a Division I win over Northeastern Clinton in girls’ Northern Soccer League action Tuesday 3-2.

“It was a great back-and-forth game,” Chiefs coach Mary LoTemplio said. “Northeastern Clinton came to play. They had a penalty kick late in the second overtime with an opportunity to tie the game, too. Summer Gillespie, who went in briefly for Jamie Favreau in net, came up with the save. Both teams competed hard.”

Seton Catholic 3, Moriah 2

PLATTSBURGH — The Knights were able to defeat the visiting Vikings by a one-goal margin in Division II play.

The game was hotly-contested between the two teams, but the eventual game-winning goal came at 26:40 of the second half when Ashley Carpenter was able to finish a through ball played by Paige Spittler.

“Carpenter and Spittler played well on the attack, while Kelli Ryan made some key saves down the stretch,” Seton Catholic coach Jason Fenner said.

As well as netting the final goal of the match, Carpenter also put the first point on the board at 15:20 off a defensive mistake by Moriah. The Vikings responded shortly after as a loose ball deflected off a Seton Catholic player, which ended in an own-goal to tie the score at one a piece.

Spittler gave the Knights the lead once again at 30:40 of the first half.

However, Moriah struck first to start the second half when Halie Snyder was able to capitalize off a semi-breakaway to tie the game up at two.

“Halie Snyder played a fantastic game, and Lauren Cross was tough to beat in net for Moriah,” Fenner said.

The tie was short-lived, though. Nearly two minutes later, Carpenter capitalized off Spittler’s pass.

Lauren Cross made 16 saves for the Vikings, while Kelli Ryan recorded 11 saves for Seton Catholic.

Northern Adirondack 3, Ticonderoga 2

ELLENBURG — Magan Magee was the hero for the Bobcats in a matchup against the Sentinels.

Magee scored the game-winning goal with 41 seconds left in the second half to give Northern Adirondack a 3-2 victory.

“It was very close,” Bobcats coach Sharon Relation said. “I thought we were going into overtime, but we were able to pull off the win.”

Northern Adirodack’s Rachael Venne put in the first goal of the game with 30:09 left in the first half, which was assisted by Magee.

The Sentinels finally got on the scoreboard with a goal by Haleigh Wright with 54 seconds left before halftime.

To start the second half, Magee scored off a direct free kick just outside the box to help the Bobcats regain the lead.

It wasn’t until three minutes remaining in the match when Ticonderoga was able to tie it all up with a goal by Kylie Austin.

However, the game-winning strike came with just under a minute to play.

Northern Adirondack’s Elle Warick took the ball wide down the sideline and crossed it toward the top of the box for Magee, who placed it over the keeper’s head and into the back of the net.

Sadie Hamel was in goal for Ticonderoga, and she finished the day with nine saves.

Anna Lashway recorded five saves for the Bobcats.

Minerva/Newcomb 3, Schroon Lake 0

SCHROON LAKE — The Mountaineers were able to go into Schroon Lake Tuesday and get a convincing victory against the Wildcats.

Millie Winslow highlighted the scoreboard for Minerva-Newcomb, recording all three goals of the game. The first two goals were assisted by Rebecca Murra.

The Mountaineers were only up by a goal at halftime. Schroon Lake coach Mary Lou Shaughnessy credited the “defensive pressure” of Amanda James and Dakota Gadway.

With only one sub on the bench, the Wildcats’ fatigue seemed to kick in. Winslow was able to knock in the final two goals in the second half to solidify the win.

Julianna Finnerty recorded 18 saves for Schroon Lake, while Astasia Myler saved five for Minerva/Newcomb.

Beekmantown 6, Saranac Lake 3

SARANAC LAKE —The Eagles’ offense was too much for the Red Storm to handle.

“Beekmantown is a strong and well-skilled team,” Saranac Lake coach Amanda Zullo said. “Their midfield play is impressive.”

The Eagles went up by three quickly in the first half as Courtney Wilson and Kirstin Villemaire had one and two goals, respectively. Kelsie Gliniski knocked in a goal for Saranac Lake to make the score 3-1 at halftime.

“Kelsie Gliniski had an amazing game for us, while Jenny Ward and Maggie Darrah stepped up to fill some gaps in places they aren’t accustomed to,” Zullo said.

Beekmantown’s offense didn’t let down in the second half, scoring another two goals at 35:27 and 22:38 by Kallie Villemaire and Kirstin Vileamaire, respectively.

With eight minutes remaining, Saranac Lake got on the board again with a goal by Ashley Roddy, which was assisted by Cecily Decker.

Courtney Wilson would tack on the Eagles’ final goal at 5:08. However, the Red Storm were not going down quietly as Decker finished off a goal from Logan Hochwald with 2:33 remaining.

“We had a lot of opportunities, which we will work to capitalize on for next time,” Zullo said.
