SARANAC — The Saranac boys’ soccer team earned revenge Tuesday.

Ten days after Saranac Lake knocked off the Chiefs in the Saranac Preseason Invitational championship, Saranac evened the score with a 2-1 victory.

“It was a team effort in this big win,” Chiefs coach Tom Harrigan said. “Saranac Lake played a very tough game and had some great defensive plays as well as scoring opportunities.”

Saranac opened scoring with 3:36 remaining in the second half when Tyler Blair’s shot deflected off a Red Storm defender and into the back of the net.

Brian Menia was credited with the assist on the play.

Saranac Lake answered when Witter Swanson knotted the game at 1-all at the 31:17 mark of the second half.

Austin Myers’ late-game heroics gave the Chiefs a 2-1 win.

“The winning goal started with a goal kick from Eli Boliver to a speedy Brian Menia on the outside right,” Harrigan said. “Menia had a great pass to Austin Myers. Myers, with speed and control, found the back of the net.

“Rory Patterson and Isiah Dessurealt had strong games defensively.”

Chris Fall made five saves between the pipes in the one-goal win.
