Beekmantown sneaks past Peru

PERU — Kirsten Villemaire’s goal with 5:15 remaining in regulation lifted the Beekmantown girls to a 3-2 victory over Peru in Northern Soccer League action on Wednesday.

“It was our last game at home this season and it was a farewell to our four seniors,” Peru coach Tom Harrigan said. “We really wanted to win against this good team.”

Kallie Villemaire’s goal, with Aleasha Barcomb assisting, broke a 1-all tie and gave the Eagles the lead with 16:46 gone in the second half.

But the Indians rallied back when Rachel Sheldrick scored from Maddy Flynn at the 26:42 mark to tie it.

That set the stage for Kirsten Villemaire’s game-winning goal, assisted by Lindsey Gonyea.

Kirsten Villemaire’s first goal of the game put Beekmantown ahead 3:30 into the first half, with Bethany Simpson getting the assist.

But Sheldrick’s first of two goals, with Lindsey Bushey assisting, pulled Peru into a 1-all tie at 8:07.

“We did have a lot of pressure throughout the game, but Beekmantown also had its chances, keeping our defense busy,” Harrigan said. “Amanda Laporte did a great job on Kallie Villemaire, but Beekmantown did a great job on Lindsey Bushey.

“I felt our girls played hard and kept up with a team that beat us, 4-0, in the first time we played them.”

Lauren O’Connor stopped nine shots in the Beekmantown nets and Emily Larsen made seven saves for Peru.

Christina Paola turned aside four shots in the Cougars’ nets and Bryce Douglass made 12 stops for the Patriots.

“Michaela McDonough and Maddie Tucker played well for us,” NCCS coach Tim Surprenant said. “The first half was sloppy with the rain and we didn’t match their intensity.

“The second half and the first overtime we played much better and regained control of the game. This is a nice win for us leading into sectionals and I was proud of our overall performance.”

LAKE PLACID — The Blue Bombers scored both of their goals in a span of 37 seconds late in the first half and completed a perfect record at home this season.

Nzoni Thompson tallied at 35:57 of the first half after taking a feed from Chris Williams, who was called up to the varsity team this week. Then Thompson chased down a ball and got it to Ryan Damp, who put it in for a 2-0 lead.

The Bobcats came out stronger in the second half, and Ryan Manion put them within a goal with just under five minutes left in regulation.

“(Coach) Pat Kelleher and his teams never give up,” Lake Placid coach Stuart Hemsley said. “We were coasting in the first period, should have had the game sealed up and we failed to register the amount of possession and chances on the scoreboard.

“We were confident at halftime, but the last 15 minutes looked like we were heading to OT or even lose another must-win game.”

Chris Kordziel earned the win with three saves, and Northern Adirondack goal keeper Ethan King played a strong game, making six stops.

The Blue Bombers earned the top seed in Class C and have a spot in the Section VII final.
