Lake George Reovers From Earlt Deficit to Win ADK Title
When the calendar flips to the middle of October and high school sports season champions begin to be determined, there is one thing that we can anticipate annually. Lake George and Fort Ann will be competing for the Adirondack League championship. This year was no exception.
Friday Lake George rallied from a 1-0 first half deficit to defeat Fort Ann 3-1 to win the ADK title once again at Golden Goal in Fort Ann. The victory gives the Warriors their fifth straight championship.
It didn't look good early for Lake George as the Cardinals drew first blood. Anthony Morino converted a pass from Sam Fredericks in the 15th minute to give Fort Ann an early 1-0 lead.
Lake George equalized in the final minute of the half. The Warriors were awarded a penalty kick and leading scorer Sam Knauf distributed it in the back of the net to make it 1-1 at the break.
The Knauf goal seemed to spark the Warriors. Poe Tutu gave Lake George a 2-1 advantage with a goal at the 48:29 mark on an assist from Kyle Dolan.
Knauf provided Lake George with a two-goal lead on a free kick at 50:29 and the Warriors held on the rest of the way.
Yogi Johnson had four saves for Lake George. Dylan Brown had 14 saves for Fort Ann.
Lake George is 12-0, 15-1. Fort Ann is 8-3.
Proctor Edges Arlington in Overtime
It took nearly as much extra time as you can possibly have, but the Proctor boys soccer team scored late in overtime as they edged Arlington 2-1 in an SVL match.
The Phantoms took advantage of an Arlington foul as Carter Crossmon scored on a direct kick with 1:39 remaining in the second OT to hand his team the victory.
The game was scoreless in the first half. Proctor took a 1-0 lead with 27:38 to play when Matt Nop hit the back of the net off an assist from Joel Denton.
Arlington struck for the equalizer with just 1:48 to play on a tally from Lewis Douglas.
Ian French of Proctor and Arlington's Andy Petry both played outstanding in goal.
Cameron Cannucci played a stellar defensive game for the Phantoms.
Proctor is now 5-3-1. Arlington is 4-8.
Brattleboro Hangs on to Defeat Slaters
Fair Haven battled right down to the wire, but in the end Brattleboro was able to hang on as the Colonels defeated the Slaters 28-24 in high school football.
Fair Haven jumped out to the early 7-0 lead on a touchdown run from Matt Heibler.
After Brattleboro took an 8-6 lead a Sam Barber TD run made it 14-8 Fair Haven.
The Colonels took the lead back at 16-14, but a 38-yard field goal from Slater's soccer goalie Kole Matta gave Fair Haven a 17-16 lead at halftime.
Brattleboro went back on top in the second half after running back an interception for a score to make it 21-17.
Sophomore quarterback Joe Buxton tossed a scoring pass to Heibler to make it 24-21 Slaters after the PAT, but the Colonels scored with 5:38 to go to claim the win.
Both teams now have records of 3-4.
