Girls soccer roundup: Early goals hold up for Millbrook


Scoring twice in the opening period, the Millbrook High School girls soccer team topped host Pine Plains on Wednesday 3-1.

Roni Peterson put the Blazers on the board 5:21 into the game, and Emma Lagno scored what proved to be the winning goal less than five minutes later.

After Makayla Long cut the Millbrook lead in half 7:06 after halftime, Lea Mazella scored off a corner kick, assisted by Makenzie Harkenrider, to cap the scoring.

In goal, Aimee Jacques stopped five Bombers’ shots.

“It was a little sloppy,” Millbrook coach Sean McGuigan said. “We have a lot to work on. We came off a (loss to Rhinebeck) but we played a heck of a game. To come in here like this, it wasn’t what we want. We have to go back to the drawing board, I guess, to get ready for Arlington (B).”

Millbrook (2-1-1) visits Arlington B on Saturday.

Spackenkill 6, Webutuck 0 — Gabby Prichard had two goals and an assist to help the host Spartans shut out the Warriors.

Katie Lillis scored twice for Spackenkill (4-0-1). Aislinn Speranza also scored for Spackenkill, and Maria Barefoot got her first varsity goal.

“We didn’t execute in the first half and we weren’t passing the ball,” Spackenkill coach Mike Corbett said. “In the second half, we started putting some combinations together and played more of a control game and a possession game.”

Spackenkill goalkeeper Meghan Pantano made two saves. Shelby Adrian made 16 saves for Webutuck (0-3-1).

New Paltz 2, Wallkill 0 — Marcelina Martynek scored in the first half and Allie Jacone scored in the second, off a Cerrissa DiValentino assist, as the Huguenots won at home.

Mikayla Cochrane stopped all nine shots she faced for New Paltz (4-1), which hosts Highland on Monday.

Highland 2, Rondout Valley 1 — Shannon Ward opened the scoring for the host Huskies, and Michaela Raffeale used a pass from Alessia Cutugno to score Highland’s second goal.

Rhinebeck 3, John A. Coleman Catholic 0 — Natalie Hutchins, Megan Heller and Christine Hatter scored for the visiting Hawks, who shut out the Stateswomen.

Sydney Spencer made four saves for Rhinebeck (3-2), which visits Saugerties at 4:15 p.m. today.

Saugerties 4, Franklin D. Roosevelt 0 — Darien Demelis made 16 saves, but the visiting Presidents lost to the Sawyers.

Arlington B 1, Haldane 1 — After Sarah Jacoby gave Cold Spring’s Blue Devils a 1-0 lead midway through the first half late Wednesday, Sarah Mogan sent the game into overtime with her goal with 30 seconds left in regulation.
