SARANAC — Zashon Abrams finished with two goals and an assist in Saranac’s 3-1 defeat of Beekmantown in boys Northern Soccer League play Tuesday.

Abrams scored the Chiefs’ first two goals, and assisted on Nikalas Hamel’s insurance goal that came with 36:25 left in the second half.

Leo Golden cut the Eagles’ deficit to 2-1 very early in the second half.

“My guys played a solid 80 minutes of soccer for the first time this season,” Saranac coach Calvin Hamel said. “I was extremely happy with our effort (Tuesday). We had players step up and play the way they are capable of playing.

“We showed great resilience after Leo Golden sniped one from about 30 yards out for Beekmantown. We answered back with a quick goal, which shows the true character of this team.”

Branden Ashley turned away five shots in the Chiefs’ nets, and Matt Wood made seven saves for the Eagles.
