Soccer team loses to league’s best

DSC_0077Lake George wasted no time in jumping out to a lead against Whitehall on Monday.

The Warriors scored 19 seconds into the game and added two second half goals to defeat Whitehall 3-0 and sweep the season series.

Erika Harker had a strong game in goal for Whitehall recording 17 saves. The Warriors’ Brittany Motta scored two goals.

After allowing the early goal, Whitehall held Lake George scoreless for the next 64 minutes until the Warriors extended their lead on direct kick goal in the second half.

For the game, Lake George outshot Whitehall 20-11.

Last Saturday, Whitehall and Granville fought to a scoreless tie in a nonleague game held in Whitehall.

The Railroaders outshot Granville 25-4, but couldn’t put the ball past Gabby Hilder who recorded 16 saves for the Horde.

 “I think Granville packed it in at the end. They dropped a bunch of defenders back,” said head coach Ceil Brandi.

Jacob Morales, playing his first game for Whitehall, had 10 shots on goal and consistently displayed an ability to beat defenders, only to see Hilder make several nice saves.

Harker had three saves for Whitehall.

On Sept. 28, a depleted Whitehall team fell to Fort Ann 5-0.

The Railroaders kept the game closing, fighting to a 0-0 stalemate at the half, but a couple of key injuries caught up with Whitehall in the second half.

“We were down two starters,” said Brandi. “We played good in the first half but in the second half Fort Ann scored two of its five goals on restarts.”

Kaleigh Foran had two goals for the Cardinals. Harker made 13 saves in the game.

Whitehall picked up its second win of the season on Sept. 24 versus Hadley-Luzerne.

Mallory Keough broke a 1-1 tie on a direct-kick goal with nine minutes remaining in the game.

Shelby Keane also scored for Whitehall and Caitlyn Sanford added an assist for the Railroaders.

Whitehall is 2-3 in the Adirondack League and 2-3-1 overall. The Railroaders host Sale tonight at 4:30 p.m.
