Soccer records big win against Bolton

Ceil Brandi knew her team had the potential to compete in the Adirondack League but after a pair of disappointing losses to Lake George and Salem, she had yet to see it translate to the field.

That potential was finally realized last Thursday as Whitehall scored a pair of goals two minutes apart early in the second half and rolled to a 2-0 win over Bolton.

“I knew they had it in them,” Brandi said. “That was a big win; it was our best game of the season. We practiced well all week and they all played awesome.”

Carianna Jones broke a scoreless tie several minutes into the second half, Brittany Putorti extended the lead two minutes later and the Whitehall defense snuffed out a few scoring opportunities to preserve the win.

Whitehall recorded 18 shots compared to Bolton’s 12 and Kelsey Farley made eight saves in goal for the Railroaders.

Jones scored the game’s first goal on a well-placed strike from just outside the box that sailed over the goalie’s head with 36 minutes remaining in the second half.

Whitehall struck again two minutes later after Putorti gathered a shot that got away from the Bolton goalie and put it in the back of the net.

With the win Whitehall improves to 1-2 in the league and 2-2 overall. They host Lake George tonight at 4:30 and will play Salem under portable lighting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
