WATERTOWN - The FC Freeze u16 contingent closed out the regular season of the Northern New York Youth Soccer League battling the Upstate United FC Cozmos to a 2-2 deadlock and in the meantime captured a regular season crown with a 8-1-1 mark.
There will be a post season tournament this weekend at the Indian River School Complex for all the teams that participated in the Northern New York Youth Soccer Leagues.
On Monday, despite outshooting the Watertown contingent 16-5, the locals were forced to settle for the split. Malone’s Ian Mahoney scored a goal in each half with Parhisvhille-Hopkington’s Garret Hayes and Colton-Pierrepont’e Ethan Knight each drawing assists. FC Freeze pressured to get the game winner in the closing minutes with several opportunities from the rushes of Ogdensburg’s Peyton Lalone and Madrid-Waddington’s Tyler Robinson but a few strong stops from the Cozmos net minder secured the tie. Lisbon’s Nick Spooner collected three saves in goal for the FC Freeze with Ogdensburg’s Ben Hammond and Parishville-Hopkington’s Lucas Snell turning in strong midfield play.
