Stillwater Advances to State Semi’s

At a time of the year when for most teams it’s typically more difficult to post victories, the Stillwater girls soccer team continues to make it look easy.

Saturday afternoon the Warriors took the short trip to Mechanicville for a state regional match with AuSable Valley and Stillwater followed their blueprint for success, hanging crooked numbers on the board in each half while throwing a shutout defensively in coasting to a 6-0 “W”.

The Warriors scored three goals on both sides of the break with Keelyn Peacock, Brooke Picket and Teya Staie all connected on a pair of scoring strikes.

Stillwater keeper Kiersten Conroy and the Warriors defense combined for the shutout, their ninth of the year with four of those coming in post season play.

Stillwater’s dominance from the regular season has intensified in the “second season” where in five matches they’ve outscored their opponents 30-1.

With the victory the Warriors travel west this weekend to face Haldane in a Class C semifinal at Cortland High School, just one win away from a shot at the state title.
