HAMMOND – It took a collective team effort by Heuvelton to produce its ninth shutout of the season – seventh in NAC West Division Girls Soccer this fall on Tuesday against host Hammond in a 5-0 decision. Literally, Heuvelton rocked us today, said Hammond coach Shawn Dack after his team dipped to 10-2, 9-2 in the NAC West standings while number eight state-ranked Heuvelton remained unbeaten at 11-0-2, 10-0-1 NAC West.
Heuvelton coach Gus Burns was very satisfied with his teams effort.
We played very, very well. Our bench stepped up today and Paige McCormick did a good job in net. Erin Kennedy, Miranda Donnelly and Karina Warren did an exceptional job stepping in as we juggled our lineup a bit. And Logan Tallman really played great and Olivia St. Pierre just had another outstanding game, said Heuvelton Coach Gus Burns of his team which hosts Hammond Thursday looking to clin ch at least a share of the division title.
The score was 5-0 but it was much closer than that. I fully expect a different Hammond team on Thursday.
The Bulldogs, who have allowed just five goals in 13 games, received six saves from McCormick in goal.
Offensively, Erin Kennedy produced the only goal needed as she connected from Alexis Weidner in the fifth minute. Twelve minutes later, Weidner would make it 2-0 from Olivia St. Pierre. The Bulldogs closed out the first half scoring when Donnelly buried a shot from a pass of Tallman.
Weidner finished off a Maddie St. Pierre pass in the 44th and Tallman converted unassisted in the 57th. Cassie Whalen had six saves for Hammond.
Lisbon 5, Edwards-Knox 1: Maddie Vine figured in four of the five goals for the 9-2-2, 8-2-1 Knights who beat the host Cougars (4-7).
