Saints Fall to New Lebanon


In a game tied 1-1 at the break, a pair of second half scores led the top-seeded Tigers past Saratoga Catholic in a Class D girls soccer quarterfinal on Monday.

Sydney Smith connected on the first of her two goals at the 27:00 mark of the first half giving the Tigers the 1-0 advantage.

Nine minutes later the Saints answered when Lauren Maher took an Ella Blanchard feed and finished, knotting the game at 1-1.

The game remained deadlocked through much of the second half before Smith found the range with her second tally of the match at the 75:00 mark  giving the Tigers the 2-1 lead.

An own goal late in the half gave New Lebanon the two goal cushion and the Tigers closed things out, advancing to the D semi’s with the hard fought “W”.
