Soccer team beats HF, falls to FA, Bolton

DSC_0934Whitehall’s soccer team will be happy not to see the Seamans sisters from Bolton again this year.

Olivia Seamans scored two goals to lead Bolton pass Whitehall 2-1 on Monday.

Abbie Seamans and Molly Schoder each recorded an assist.

Olivia Seamans has now scored three goals and recorded an assist against Whitehall this year. Earlier this season, she and her sister, Abbie Seamans, each scored a goal in a 2-0 victory over Whitehall.

Monday’s game began as a defensive battle with each team holding the other scoreless through the first half.

Olivia Seamans, however, put Bolton ahead netting a goal on an assist from Abbie Seamans. She later extended the lead with her second goal.

Erika Harker played a strong game in goal for Whitehall, making 19 saves. Cariana Jones scored the Railroaders’ lone goal.

On Oct. 17, Whitehall nearly finished in a tie with mighty Fort Ann, but the Cardinals managed to score the game winner in the waning moments of the game.

Tied 1-1, Debi Stockman scored the go-ahead goal with only 14 seconds remaining to send the Cardinals to their ninth win of the season.

Whitehall jumped out to an early lead, as Heather Michaud scored the Railroaders’ only goal nine minutes into the game.

The game remained 1-0 until Casey Batchelder’s equalizer tied the game in the second half.

Harker recorded 18 saves in the game.

On Oct. 16, the Railroaders recorded a 3-0 non-league win over visiting Hudson Falls in what was the team’s senior game. 

Jones opened up the scoring on a well-placed kick from 60 feet and Jacob Morales added two goals in the second half to seal the win. Caitlyn Sandford recorded an assist and Whitehall’s defense limited the Tigers to five shots on goal.

Whitehall finishes the regular season with a 4-6 record in the Adirondack League and a 5-6-1 mark overall.

 Based on that record, the team received the tenth seed in the Section II, Class C playoffs and will travel to play seventh-seeded Middleburgh later today.

The game is scheduled to start at 3 p.m.
