BEEKMANTOWN - The Saranac Lake boys soccer team had a strong game Friday, but had to settle for a 1-0 loss to the Beekmantown Eagles.
Adam Goldfarb scored the only goal of the game in the 23rd minute of the first half on a pass from Nick Danussi. Saranac Lake coach Bill Wilson said the ball bounced over Red Storm goalie Oliver Holmes' hands and was headed in by Goldfarb.
"This was positively the best display of passing and control (I've) seen all season," Wilson said. "Our defense was on the money and did not allow many scoring opportunities. On the flip side, our midfield to forward press was much stronger.
"We can't wait for our next game at home on Tuesday. The boys are hungry."
The Red Storm will bring a 1-6 record into Tuesday's home game against Plattsburgh.
Holmes stopped 10 shots in goal for Saranac Lake on Friday, while Beekmantown goalkeeper Matt LaClaire turned away six. Saranac Lake outshot the Eagles 18-14.
The Red Storm are slated to take on Northeastern Clinton on the road Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
