Red Storm girls fall short against Chazy
SARANAC LAKE — The Saranac Lake girls’ soccer team put together a strong performance at home on Tuesday, but ultimately fell to the Chazy Eagles by a score of 3-1.
“We came off from a lackluster performance on Friday against Northern Adirondack and played much more physically tonight,” Red Storm head coach Jason Wamsganz said in a statement. “We did a much better job playing between the 18’s tonight and inside of our 18, but we didn’t play well in and around their 18. I asked our girls to do something positive every 30 seconds, and for the most part, we accomplished that small goal.”
The Eagles were led by Ava McAuliff, who scored twice in the contest. Chazy’s Lily Pratt connected on the other goal to improve the Eagles’ overall record to 9-2.
After allowing Chazy to score three straight goals the Red Storm’s Tyler Burth kicked the ball into the back of the net with two minutes left in the contest to prevent the shutout. Burth’s goal was assisted by Maddison Moody-Durant.
“We are going to keep working on a few things and see if we can start to generate a little more offense,” Wamsganz said.
Despite falling, Karlie Goetz was solid in net for Saranac Lake. The senior goaltender recorded 12 saves, while Chazy’s goalie, Tess Blair, had two.
The loss dropped the Red Storm’s season record to 1-6. Saranac Lake will take on Boquet Valley at 4:30 p.m. on the road today, before hosting Lake Placid on Saturday at 2 p.m.
