Stillwater soccer teams couldn’t have drawn things up much better than how they played out the past two days in the Warrior Weekend Tournament.
In a four team tournament for both the girls and boys, the Warriors doubled down posting victories in both championship games last evening in Stillwater.
On Friday night the boys notched a 4-0 win over Galway scoring a pair of goals on each side of the break in a comfortable season-opening “W”.
Jack Rubenstein led the Warriors with a pair goals, with Grant Baker and Jake Zdonick adding a goal each.
In the championship match the Warriors and Doane Stuart were tied 1-1 at the break, but Stillwater tallied three time in the second half to earn the 4-2 victory.
Jake Zdonick found the back of the net three times, Cooper Monast added a score, and Grant Baker dropped a pair of assists to lead the Warriors.
On the girls side of things Stillwater rolled over Cohoes 8-1 in the opening round with both Brooke Pickett and Devon Wagner scoring hat tricks, and Teya Staie adding a pair of goals as the high powered Warrior attack was on full display. Pickett’s second goal in the contest was her 100th career varsity goal.
In the championship game Stillwater faced Voorheesville and jumped out to a 5-2 advantage at the half on their way to a 7-2 decision over the Blackbirds.
Five different players tallied for the Warriors in the first half as Kate McEvoy, Teya Staie, Devon Wagner, Keelyn Peacock, and Brooke Pickett all rang the the bell, with McEvoy and Pickett adding second strikes after the break to round out the scoring.
A nice start to the soccer season for both Warrior squads, priming for the Wasaren schedule which gets underway this week.
