Girls soccer spilt with Railroaders after tough 2OT loss

A Granville goal with less than 20 minutes left gave the Horde the 2-1 win and spilt the non-league season series with the Railroaders at a game each. Hunter Bassett knocked home a penalty kick at 18:21 to break a 1-1 tie in the second half.

Whitehall broke open the scoring in the first half when Brittany Putorti scored on a penalty kick. Granville evened things at one goal each when Elle Leach scored four minutes before the half. All goals were unassisted.

In a Wasaren League contest to see which team reached the three-win mark Granville missed out, falling in double overtime to Greenwich, 1-0, Oct. 20. Rachel Albrect drove home a direct kick for the game’s only score with just over four minutes left in the second overtime period. Despite controlling play for much of regulation, Granville failed to cash in any opportunities including two Hunter Bassett shots that rang off the crossbar of the goal. Each shot, unstoppable rainbows from 20 and 30 yards out dropped onto the crossbar before rocketing out of bounds. Forward Elle Leach made numerous runs into the box resulting in scoring chances that did not convert into goals. Granville was out shot 18-14 and topped in corner kicks 6-4. Senior goalie Amy Baker made 12 saves to keep the match scoreless and even got a hand on the goal, but was not able to keep it from deflecting off of her hand and into the net. Granville dropped to 2-12 in the Wasaren and Greenwich moved up to 3-10-1.
