KEENE — Hanna Whitney’s goal at 1:05 of double overtime helped Keene slip past Crown Point in girls’ Northern League Soccer action Tuesday, 1-0.

“Both Keene and Crown Point played a tough game,” Beavers (6-1-1) coach Brittany Purdy said. “My girls gave me 100 percent and that is all I can really ask for. Our defense was ready to play (Tuesday). Hanna Whitney had a tough goal going one-one-one with a Crown Point defender.”

Fie Tims was credited with the assist on Whitney’s game-winning tally.

Amanda Wolf accumulated 13 saves between the pipes for the Panthers (6-3).

Beekmantown 3, Plattsburgh High 1

BEEKMANTOWN — The tandem of Kallie Villemaire and Kirsten Villemaire worked well in the Eagles’ (9-2) win.

The two siblings combined for three goals and two assists for No. 17 Beekmantown.

“I thought we really didn’t play our game in the first half,” Eagles coach Pete Bursik said. “Plattsburgh controlled the game for the first 20 minutes of the first half. Plattsburgh came out strong to start the game.”

Shae Frady helped the Hornets (6-5) to a 1-0 lead at 3:53 of the opening half. Hailey McLaughlin was credited with the assist on the play.

Then, Kallie Villemaire and Kirsten Villemaire scored three unanswered tallies, giving the Eagles their ninth win on the year.

“In the second half, I thought we played a lot better,” Bursik said. “We had some good scoring opportunities that we needed to finish, though. We need to play 80 minutes of soccer. Plattsburgh is a tough team. They play hard and never give up.”

Alyssa Salls made 14 saves for Plattsburgh High, while Beekmantown’s Lauren O’Connor got the win in a 10-save performance.
