Lake George out-hustled and outplayed Whitehall in its season and home opener last Friday.

The Warriors were strong offensively and defensively as they beat the Railroaders 6-1.

“They beat us to the ball,” said head coach Ceil Brandi, who was disappointed with her team’s play. “They played well and we didn’t.”

Emma Donnelly led the way for Lake George with two goals, and the Warriors’ defense allowed only five shots on goal.

Mallory Keough scored Whitehall’s only goal and Erika Harker, who has busy in goal, made 16 saves in the game.

The game was Whitehall’s Adirondack League opener. They start the year 0-1 while Lake George improves its overall record to 2-2 and 1-0 in the league.

The Railroaders host Bolton today and Hadley Luzerne on Tuesday. Both games begin at 4:30 p.m.
