“Northeastern’s defense was up high and Frady was able to play the ball to Knight, who went in basically on a breakaway to beat their keeper,” PHS coach Tim Mulligan said.
Alyssa Salls was in net for the shutout with nine saves and Christina Paola stopped four shots for the Cougars.
“Salls is a freshman and it was nice to see her get the shutout,” Mulligan said. “She played a phenomenal game. Just after we scored, they had a chance to tie the game and Salls did what she had to do.”
NCCS, which got strong play from Peyton Sample and Lexi Pero, finished with a 13-7 shot advantage.

SARANAC — Ellen Thew’s second-half goal helped break a 1-all tie and lift the Chiefs over the Patriots.
Kayla Napper gave Saranac an early 1-0 lead with a goal just two minutes into the game. Amy LoTemplio was credited with the assist.
The lead lasted until AuSable Valley’s Rachel Knapp buried a shot on a pass from Hillary Drake.
Thew then scored 11 minutes into the second half to give the Chiefs the win. Rebecca Heywood picked up the assist.
“Saranac controlled play for the most part and had a wide advantage in shots,” Chiefs coach Mary LoTemplio said. “But, AuSable was dangerous at times and Bryce Douglass was strong in net.”
Saranac outshot the Patriots, 26-10.
Dougalss had 12 saves in a losing effort. Jamie Favreau made eight stops in the victory.
