Lavin, Raino get goals; defense sets pace for soccer team

T he Whitehall girls soccer team played a pair of tight matches last week tying Salem in overtime and defeating Hadley Luzerne , 1-0.

On Sept. 20 the Railroaders hosted Salem and both teams play a spirited defensive game holding each other scoreless until through the first half.

It appeared the game was going to stay scoreless until Salem scored the contests first goal with roughly 17 minutes left in the game.

On the play Salem’s Rebecca Rogers gathered the rebound from a teammate’s direct kick and put the ball in the back on the net to give Salem a 1-0 lead.

The Railroaders answered back six minutes later when freshman Shelby Keane passed the ball to Rachel Lavin who snuck the ball by the goalkeeper for her first varsity goal, tying the score at one all.

The teams held each other in check through the remainder of regulation and the defensive play would continue through two overtime periods.

Both teams fire 11 shots on goal during the game and Kelsey Huntington and Kelsey Farley combined for nine saves in goal.

Last Thursday, Whitehall traveled to Lake Luzerne where they played a winless Hadley Luzerne squad.  

Midway through the first half Jacklyn Raino put the ball in the back of the net for a 1-0 lead and all the scoring Whitehall would need.

The Railroaders defense put the clamps on the Luzerne attack, scoring their second shutout victory of the season.

Cariana Jones got the assist on the game’s lone goal and Huntington made six saves for the Railroaders who improved to 1-2-1 in the league and 2-2-1 overall.  Whitehall trails Lake George, Fort Ann and Bolton in the Adirondack League.

They’ll have a chance to gain some ground on the leagues frontrunners as they host Fort Ann later today and travel to Lake George next Tuesday.
