WILLSBORO — After a slow first half, Northern Adirondack’s offensive explosion in the second half propelled them to a victory over Willsboro in Northern Soccer League action, Wednesday.
But just because there was no score in the first, didn’t mean things weren’t interesting.
“NAC was the aggressor In both halves,” Warrior coach Eric Arnold said. “We failed to match their intensity and were fortunate to come out of the first half tied 0-0.”
Early in the second, Troy LaBarge broke the ice for the Bobcats, putting a direct kick into the net just 1:39 into the frame.
LaBarge then assisted on a Kingston Tucker goal 14 minutes later, before capping off the game with another goal a minute later to make it 3-0 Bobcats.
Finley Walker scored off an Everett Cassavaugh assist to get Willsboro on the board, but the comeback bid would be for naught.
