Soccer team finishing well

T he Whitehall girls’ soccer team may be peaking at the perfect time.

With the Adirondack League regular season coming to an end and Sectionals quickly approaching, the Railroaders have played inspired soccer over the last two weeks, defeating Fort Ann 1-0 on Oct. 11 and playing a thriller against Hadley Luzerne last Thursday.

Rebecca Lavin scored the game winning goal with 57 seconds left in regulation as Whitehall defeated Hadley-Luzerne 2-1 in a rare home game held under the lights on Oct. 13

With the win, Whitehall improved to 4-4-1 in the league (5-4-1 overall) and moved into sole possession of third place in the Adirondack League, meaning they would host the fourth place team (Salem at the moment) and avoid Fort Ann and regular season league champion Lake George in the opening round of sectionals.

In Thursday’s game, Whitehall jumped out to an early lead as Rachael Lavin scored to give the Railroaders a 1-0 advantage.

Hadley-Luzerne answered back early in the second half on Sequoya Fitzpatrick’s penalty kick to make it 1-1.

The teams held each other mostly in check through the remainder of the second half and the game appeared destined to head to overtime when Kendra Rocque threaded a pass to Rebecca Lavin as she broke through the middle of the Hadley defense and put the ball in the left side of the net for the 2-1 victory.

Whitehall finishes the regular season with a pair of non-league games against Granville at 4:15 p.m. on Friday and Hudson Falls at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24.
