Clinton women roll to win vs. Fulton-Montgomery


---- — JOHNSTOWN — Kyli Swires, Kenna Agoney and Lyndale Nephew scored goals in the first half Wednesday and the Clinton Community College women’s soccer team rolled to a 4-0 win over outmanned Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

Swires opened the scoring at the 17:13 mark and was followed by Agoney at 25:08 and Nephew, on a penalty kick, at 30:09.

“We started a little slowly — I don’t know if it was the heat or what,” Clinton assistant coach Gena Rosenbaum said. “But once we got our first goal, we started to play better.”

Agoney added her second goal with 14:51 left in the contest, with Kiley Wilkins getting the assist, and that was when the game was called due to the Raiders being short on numbers.

“It was their first game, and they didn’t have many players,” Rosenbaum said. “They were packing it in defensively in the second half.”

The Cougars, who host Hudson Valley Community College at 2 p.m. Saturday, finished with a 29-5 advantage in shots on goal. Courtney Backus turned away four shots for the shutout in net.

“Kaila McGowan played great for us at outside midfield,” Rosenbaum said. “She made a lot of nice crosses.”

Sisinia Macchrelli, the second goalie used by Fulton-Montgomery, was a standout in the loss.

“She made a lot of great saves and played very well,” Rosenbaum said.

SARANAC LAKE — The Saints ended a scoring slump and picked up a win.

“We played pretty well. We possessed the ball a lot better than we had been the last couple of games,” North Country Community College coach Adam DiVincenzo said. “The last two games, we hadn’t scored any goals in regulation, so it was nice to see the ball go in the net.”

Winterson Joseph opened the scoring 15:23 into the first half. Then Justin Bergman and Fendher Pierre Louis added second-half goals. Joseph earned an assist on Bergman’s goal.

“We created better opportunities,” DiVencenzo said. “We got better-looking shots, got the ball in dangerous areas. More possession in the final third helped us win.”

Beau Stanford had to make just one save to record the shutout. Jacob Laclair had 10 stops for Jefferson Community College.

North Country hosts Word of Life at 3 p.m. today.

North Country 6, Jefferson 2

SARANAC LAKE — Courtney Boyea tallied her second consecutive hat trick to lead the Saints.

Boyea’s goals all came in the first half, giving North Country a 3-0 lead. During a two-minute span in the middle of the second half, Jefferson pulled close with goals from Jane Judware and Morgan Nabywaniec.

Then Chelsea Lafountain got the cushion back for the Saints, netting two goals before assisting on one by Abbey LaPage.

Lafountain has scored seven goals in North Country’s last two games.

“I want to praise our defense,” Saints coach Kent Egglefield said. “This was the first time we played a flat four and the first time I’ve coached it in my 15 years. They were phenomenal, minus a two-mintue lapse where lost what we were doing and allowed those two goals.

“Other than that, I think this was the best game one of my teams has played. We controlled the ball from start to finish. It’s a big win to beat Jefferson.”

Emily Lapage turned away five shots in the North Country nets. Kate Gehrke made 11 saves for Jefferson.

The Saints host Paul Smith’s College at 5 p.m. today.
