While the Wasaren golf season wraps up it’s second week of play, the leagues soccer squads have begun their 2019 campaign with the girls and boys of Stillwater opening in impressive fashion.
Stillwater 2 Queensbury 1 OT: A remarkable sidebar from the 2018 championship season for the Stillwater girls was the fact that never once trailed. Yesterday in the championship match of the Meehan Invitational in Stillwater, a Brigid Duffy goal for the Spartans in the 56th minute put the Warriors on the wrong side of a 1-0 game.
Stillwater responded in kind, drawing even in the 65th minute on a PK by Teya Staie, and notching the win on a Paige Brinsko header in the second overtime, to turn back the Class A Spartans and win their season-opening tournament.
The Warriors move to 2-0 on the year and push their unbeaten streak to 25 games, a streak that will be tested the next time out when Stillwater will face AA opponent Colonie.
Stillwater 3 Doane Stuart 0: A pair of goals from Grant Baker and a single strike by Issac Curtis led the Warriors to the “W” in the championship game of the Meehan Invitational on Thursday.
Tim Buchal with four saves combined with the Stillwater defense to earn the shutout as the Warriors improve to 2-0 on the young season.
Greenwich 8 Glen Falls 1: The Witches jumped out to a 5-1 lead at the break and cruised to the season-opening victory at Greenwich on Thursday.
The Witches Tess Merrill and Faith Ingber both tallied hat tricks with Cate Abate and Kiara Vasquez finding the range as well to lead the impressive Greenwich attack.
Hoosic Valley 5 Mechanicville 0: Oliver Eckler fired the low round of 44 to lead the Indians to the sweep of Mechanicville in action at the Mechanicville Golf Club on Thursday.
The Valley’s Nolan Rafferty, Mitchel Jones, Brandon Watkins, and Brett Pruso all posted wins in their one on one matchups.
Hoosick Falls 5 Waterford 0: In a match played at the Hoosick Falls Country Club, Ryan Bloomer torched the course, carding a 31 and showing the way in the Panthers shutout victory over the Fordians.
Mat Smith, Miles Smith, Alison Hathaway and Brady Hathaway all joined Bloomer in the winner’s circle for the Falls who improve to 5-0 with the “W”.
