Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.

Argyle Blanks Hartford in the Milk Can Rivalry Game

A week ago the Hartford boys soccer team shutout Argyle on their home pitch 1-0. Last night the Scots got a little pay back as they blanked the Tanagers 2-0 under the lights at home to claim the annual Milk Can game.

The squads played evenly in the first half as they headed to the break tied 0-0.

Argyle struck first in the second half. Conner Buck scored less than three minutes in on a penalty kick to give the Scots a 1-0 edge.

Cole Schilling put it away with a goal with 17:17 remaining. Schilling headed in a cross from Victor Aguero to make it 2-0 Argyle.

Jared Montello had four saves in the goal for Argyle. Austin Wells also stopped four shots for the Tanagers.


Love Leads Slaters Over Woodstock

The Fair Haven girls soccer team had their hands full with a previously unbeaten Woodstock team Friday night under the lights at Thomas LaPlaca Field. However, in the end all it took was a little "love" for the Slaters to pull out a hard-fought 3-2 win over the Wasps.

Freshman Elizabeth Love scored two goals to continue her outstanding first-year campaign to lead Fair Haven to the win.

The teams played to a 3-3 tie earlier in the season.

Hannah Reed scored the first goal of the night giving Woodstock a 1-0 lead.

Love scored her first goal off a helper from Lily Briggs to equalize for the Slaters.

Love gave Fair Haven a 2-1 lead at the half with her second goal of the day at the 9:50 mark.

Reed scored to bring the Wasps even at 2-2 with just under 30 minutes to play.

Brittney Love set up Briggs for the game-winner with about 18 minutes to play and the Slaters made the lead stand up.

Kate Hadwen made some big sves to help preserve the win for the Slaters. Hadwen finished with nine saves.

Emma Tarleton recorded six saves for Woodstock.

Fair Haven is 5-2-2. Woodstock is 5-1-1.


Lake George Rolls Over Granville on Homecoming Night

Lake George entered Friday night's high school football game with revenge on their mind. And boy did they get it. The Warriors celebrated their Homecoming by throttling the Golden Horde 47-6 in a Section Class C North matchup.

Granville had beaten the Warriors in the Fall II Sports season finale, and Lake George has had this one circled on their calendar ever since.

Signal caller Brody McCabe and lighting fast Brendan Lamby proved to be just too much for the Golden Horde to overcome. The duo combined on TD passes of 4, 48 and 25 yards on the night. Lamby scored on a 49-yard run and McCabe added an 11-yard scamper.

"We came out on fire," Lake George coach Zak Kozersky said.

Lake George had a more offense then they would need in a less than five minute span of the first quarter. Lamby and McCabe connected for the first time with 4:47 to play in the stanza and again with seven second left. McCabe sandwiched his scoring run in between with 2:20 to play.

The Warriors increased the lead to 40-0 at the half on two more hook ups between McCabe and Lamby and a 49-yard touchdown run from Matthew Johnson.

McCabe finished the scoring in the third quarter on a Hohman.

McCabe finished 11 of 12 for 176 yards. He also had 76 yards on the ground. Johnson finished with 81 rushing yards.

Alex Warrington scored the only Granville TD from three yards out in the fourth quarter.

Lake George is 2-0. Granville is 0-2.


Hadley-Luzerne Claims ADK Golf Title

Hadley-Luzerne topped Granville 3 1/2-1 1/2 to claim the Adirondack League golf title and also won the Adirondack League Tournament.

Against the Golden Horde in the championship match Tyler Plummer and Cam Plummer won their matches over Andrew Rathbun and Logan Harrington.

Sean Frasier vs. Nate Williams, Taylor Smead vs. Ethan Martell and Caden Wilson vs. Liam Farrell all finished in ties.

Zach Bruno of Lake George shot a 38 to earn medalist honors.

The Eagles won the league tournament with a score of 139. North Warren was second with a 153. Granville (155), Lake George (164) and Whitehall (165) rounded out the top five.
