A little Lights Week magic was not enough as the Granville golden Horde boys soccer team fell to visiting Schuylerville 6-1 Monday night in Wasaren League play.
Goalie Devin Buxton kept the Horde faithful cheering as he stood on his head in the first half, making saves on several sure goals. Buxton had 24 saves in the opening game of Light Week. Granville kept the game scoreless and managed to apply pressure on the Black Horses defense registering four shots on goal. Kyle Rathbun scored Granville’s second half goal with an assist from Phil Hicks. Head Coach Dan Brayton said the whole team put forth a great effort in the game citing a strong defensive game by Ricky Prevost and Buxton as well as the hustle of players like Hicks and Rathbun. Granville drops to 0-3 in the league and 0-4 overall, while Schuylerville evened their record at 2-2.
Granville had no answer for the Stillwater Warriors when they came to town Tuesday, Sept. 13 as the host squad was unable to register a shot on goal. Granville’s Buxton, however, was severely tested, pelted with 22 shots in the 9-0 Wasaren League loss.
Schuylerville 2 4 – 6
Granville 0 1 – 1
