Whitehall falls to Granville

W hitehall plays at Granville Friday and at Hudson Falls Monday and those games should probably be included if possible.

A Granville goal with less than 20 minutes left gave the Horde the 2-1 win and split the non-league season series with Whitehall 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 Brittney 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.

Whitehall dropped a close match to the Bolton Eagles in their Adirondack League regular season finale played on the Railroaders home field on Oct. 19.

The contest was even at the half, with both teams scoring once, but Olivia Seamans’ goal in the second half of action proved to the game winner as Whitehall fall 2-1.

The game was an opportunity for the Railroaders to finish the season with winning record in the league, but Whitehall squandered several opportunities to score and finished with a 4-5-1 record in league play.

Rebecca Lavin, who has emerged as the Railroader’s most dangerous offensive threat recorded a first half goal on a pass from Brittney Putorti to give the Railroaders the lead.

But Bolton roared back to tie the game at 1-1 on a goal by Abbie Seamans. Both teams remained stuck in deadlock until Olivia Seamans broke the tie to give Bolton (4-5-1, 5-7-2) the win.

In the game Whitehall outshot Bolton nine to five but the Eagles were better able to capitalize on their opportunities.
