Border Country Sports Blog-October 4th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Today is Monday, and you know what that means? The latest edition of the Monday Morning Hot List. My weekly list of who was "Hot" this week in local high school sports.
--Anytime a team has a player record a hat trick in high school soccer it is a big deal, right? This week however the Proctor girls soccer team pulled something off that I have never seen before and likely will never see again. Three Phantom's girls soccer players had hat tricks........in the same game. Maggie McKearin, Isabel Greb and Emma Palmer all recorded hat tricks in Proctor's 11-0 win over The Sharon Academy.
--Speaking of hat tricks, a Granville field hockey sophomore had one of her own. Haylie Barber scored the first three goals of the game for the Golden Horde in a 5-0 win over Emma Willard. Barber scored two goals in the first half and one in the second.
--A Poultney Blue Devils girls soccer player recorded her first career hat trick this week. As talented as she is there may be many more in the future. Sophomore Katelyn DeBonis hit the back of the net three times as Poultney topped Long Trail 4-1.
--Granville boy's soccer standout Connor Farrell did the hat trick scorers one better. Farrell scored four goals in the Golden Horde's 5-1 victory over Corinth. With the strong effort Farrell is knocking on the door of becoming Granville's all-time leading scorer. He is believed to be just three goals away.
--The name Logan Reynolds will always be etched in the Hartford Central School Record books.The Tanagers held their first ever home cross country meet Tuesday on their newly designed 2.8 mile course and Reynolds was the first winner. Reynolds sprinted past Corinth's Hayden Sirchia down the shoot to make history. With the win in 19:17 Reynolds is the current course record holder. Argyle's Alyssa Freeguard, who ironically used to attend Hartford won the girls race.
--Speaking of cross country, Amber Gibbs of Granville-Whitehall had an impressive race at the Grout Invitational meet at Central Park in Schenectady Saturday. Gibbs placed 8th in the Division C girls race. She also recorded a time of 19:07, the fastest of her career over that particular course.
--Lake George came into Friday night's high school football game against Granville with revenge on their mind after a 20-6 loss at home to the Golden Horde in the Fall II season finale. The Warriors got huge games from quarterback Brody McCabe and wide receiver Brendan Lamby to throttle the Golden Horde 47-6. McCabe and Lamby combined for TD passes of 4, 48 and 25 yards. Lamby also had a 49-yard touchdown scamper. McCabe had a 11-yard scoring run.
--Fair Haven cruised past Poultney in the renewal of their annual rivalry game, this year held at Dean Houghton Field. Sophomore quarterback Joe Buxton had an outstanding game for the Slaters. Buxton was 7 for 7 passing with 226 yards. Buxton threw TD passes of 34 and 50 yards.
