Soccer splits pair

F our different players scored for Whitehall as the girls rolled to a 4-1 win over Salem on Oct. 2.

Rebecca Lavin, Rachel Lavin, Caitlyn Sanford and Cariana Jones each recorded goals for Whitehall and Kelsey Farley made 11 saves. Caroline McKeighan scored a late second-half goal for Salem.

Whitehall scored early and often as it raced out to a 4-0 lead at halftime.

Rebecca Lavin scored the first goal less than five minutes into the game as she collected a deflected shot and kicked into the back of the net.

Rachel Lavin scored 12 minutes later and Sanford and Jones each scored in the final minutes of the half.

The game was played under portable lighting and players wore pink socks in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Last Thursday, Whitehall traveled to Hadley-Luzerne to face a team that had won a single game all season, but goalkeeper Emily Heald played an outstanding game, stopping 15 shots in a 2-0 victory.

Kaitlin Milligan scored on a long kick in the first half and Kathleen McLean added a goal in the second half.

With the loss Whitehall falls to 3-4 in the league and 4-4 overall.

The Railroaders will face Bolton tonight at 4:30 p.m. and will host Fort Ann at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The Cardinals clinched the Adirondack League title last week with a win against Bolton and entered this week undefeated.

Whitehall is currently fourth in the Adirondack League.
