Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Welcome to Monday everyone! Of course Monday is the day I bring you the "Monday Morning Hot List." My look at who was hot this week in local high school sports.
--The Hadley-Luzerne girls soccer team is off to one of their best starts in years and Caroline Lott-Diamond has played a key role in the resurgence of the Eagle's program. Lott-Diamond scored four goals last week in Hadley-Luzerne's 4-1 win over Salem.
--Granville's Katie McEachron had a strong week in field hockey. McEachron scored a pair of second half goals to rally the Golden Horde from a 1-0 halftime deficit against Cambridge-Salem. McEachron also scored one of Granville's goals in a 2-0 win over Greenwich on Friday. Even more impressive is that McEachron is doing it all with a heavily wrappped hand after suffering an injury in summer softball.
--While I am on the subject of Granville, the Golden Horde boys soccer team picked up their first win of the season, topping Hartford to spoil the Tanager's annual "Lights Game." Conner Farrell scored two second half goals to rally Granville from a 2-0 deficit. It was the first time the Golden Horde have defeated Hartford.
--The Fair Haven field hockey team continues to impress. The Slaters earned their second win of the season this week, blanking Springfield 5-0. Fair Haven also earned a 0-0 tie agianst Rutland.
--West Rutland girls soccer freshman Peyton Guay helped the Golden Horde to knock off Poultney, handing the Blue Devils their second straight loss after a 3-0 start. Guay scored a hat trick to lead her team to a 4-1 win.
--Rutland moved to 3-0 on the season in high school football as they defeated Mount Anthony. 35-7. The Ravens got three TD catches from Slade Postemski. Postemski caught two touchdwin oasses from Trey Davine and one from Eli Pockette. Davine also had a scoring run.
--The Proctor girls soccer team continued to role. The Phantoms won a wild shootout over Arlington earlier in the season, but the Phantoms were dominant this time around in a 5-0 win.
--The Lake George girls soccer team continued to extend their Adirondack League winning streak. The Warriors defeated serious contender Hadley-Luzerne 3-1. Eighth-grader Mykah Collier-Fisher scored her first 2 varsity goals for Lake George.
--Lake George and Hartford seem to be on a collision course in Adirondack League volleyball. Both the Warriors and the Tanagers reamoned unbeaten this week. As usual, Argyle likely will be in the mix as well. The Scots were on a puase due to Covid last week. The ADK seems to be coming down to the matchups between this trio.
--Speaking of Lake George volleyball, Shannon Staratt had a huge match in the Warrior's 3-0 win over Corinth. Starratt recorded 17 assists, 3 kills, and 6 service points. Maddie Burke added 16 service points, 8 digs and 7 aces.
