Girls soccer tops Bolton

T he Railroaders soccer team continues to show steady improvement.

A week after defeating Hadley Luzerne and tying Salem in overtime, Whitehall defeated Bolton 2-1 on Sept. 27.

Caitlyn Sanford provided the offensive firepower for Whitehall recording the game winning goal and assisting on another.

Sanford broke open a 1-1 game during the second half as she took the ball on a long throw-in from Brittney Putorti and put it in the back of the net to seal the victory for Whitehall.

Sanford also recorded an assist in the first half as her pass for Kendra Rocque who scored a first half goal for Whitehall.

For the game, Whitehall recorded eight shots and Kelsey Farley had seven saves for the Railroaders.

The game had important implications in seeding for Sectional play and the win moved Whitehall into a tie with Bolton at 2-2-1 in the league (since the game Bolton has lost falling to 2-3-1 in the league).

Whitehall now sits in third place in the league behind Lake George and Fort Ann. Although every team qualifies for Sectional play in the Adirondack League, finishing in third or fourth place helps teams avoid a first round matchup with the leagues front runners.

The Railroaders overall record is 3-2-1.

Whitehall had been scheduled to host Fort Ann on Sept. 29 but the game was canceled because of poor weather and will be made up at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 11.

The Railroaders play at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon in Salem.
