CARTHAGE Watertowns girls soccer team worked efficiently Wednesday night, scoring three goals on as many shots against Carthage to secure another division championship.
Olivia Miles scored twice within the first nine minutes and goalkeeper Katie Aldrich made 15 saves as the Cyclones blanked the Comets, 3-0 to clinch the Frontier Leagues A Division regular-season title.
Darcie Dyer also scored a goal for Watertown (6-4-3 overall, 6-3-2 league), which won the division crown in the regular season outright for the second time in three years. Last year, the Cyclones shared the title with Indian River.
This is great for this group of girls because we didnt get off to a great start this season, Watertown coach Mike VanNostrand said. But they kept working hard and practicing hard and they came back and earned this in a very competitive league.
After Miles tallied her first goal in the 7th minute, with Abby Converse assisting, she scored on a 30-yard free kick in the ninth minute.
Dyer then scored with an unassisted effort in the 20th minute.
VanNostrand also credited Watertowns defense in the victory.
Katie made some big saves for us, he said. But Megan Burr helped us out by clearing away a ball which was near the goal line; that would have been a big goal for them in the first half.
Becky Brandal finished with six saves for Carthage (7-6-1, 6-5-1).
