Saranac stuns Plattsburgh in overtime

SARANAC — Amelia Jenks supplied the offense and keeper Jamie Favreau the defense Wednesday night in Saranac’s 2-1 overtime upset of Plattsburgh High in Northern Soccer League girls’ soccer.

Jenks scored both of the Chiefs’ goals, the second coming with 3:56 gone in the first overtime.

“Jenks had a good night,” said Saranac coach Mary LoTemplio. “But the rest of the team battled. They didn’t give up after we fell behind.”

Favreau, meanwhile, recorded 25 saves in net as the Hornets finished with a 31-16 edge in shots.

“Favreau made some great saves,” said LoTemplio. “A lot of great saves. She was a game changer tonight. But she has been playing well lately.”

It was a scoreless game until Brooke Knight scored off an Olivia Carlsson assist with 13:00 gone in the second half.

It stayed that way until 4:24 was left in regulation when Jenks pulled Saranac even off a scramble in front.

The game-winning goal came about when Summer Gillespie sent a nice cross in front where Jenks headed it into the far corner.

Karlie Neale made nine saves in net for the Hornets.
