Soccer girls fall to Fort Ann

Fort Ann rode a first half surge to defeat Whitehall in an Adirondack League game played on Oct. 16.

The Cardinals scored three goals in the first half to open a 4-1 lead at the half and went on to defeat the Railroaders 4-2.

Kara White led Fort Ann with three goals and goalie Kayla Bancroft made 18 saves. Cariana Jones and Caitlyn Sandford each scored for Whitehall.

Whitehall had opportunity to take an early lead seven minutes into the game but was unable to connect on a penalty kick and Fort Ann scored its first goal 30 seconds later.

Whitehall managed to tie the game after Rebecca Lavin connected with Jones, who put the ball just past the goalie and into the right-hand corner of the net.

But Fort Ann scored two more times in the half and added another goal early in the second half.

On Monday, Whitehall hosted Ticonderoga and the teams played to a 1-1 draw.

The Railroaders finished the regular season with a 5-6-1 record overall and received the 16th seed in the Class C Sectional tournament and will play at 16th seed Waterford at 3 p.m. today.

The winner of that game will advance to play top-seeded Hoosick Falls at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
