HAMMOND 5 - HARRISVILLE 0
Avery Kenyon scored two goals and Hailey Cunningham delivered one goal and two assists for the Red Devils who broke away from a strong Harrisville effort according to Coach Shawn Dack.
"Harrisville did really well throughout game but we got behind them couple times second half to pull away. We had so many great second half sequences. Played with a lot of heart and grit. Our defense anchored the game," said Coach Dack.
"Norah Pease, Zoey Cunningham, Jordan Kloepping and Caitlynn Cunningham always do a high level job."
Hailee Manning also scored, Madeleine Rathbun supplied an assist and Landree Kenyon posted a one-save shutout.
MORRISTOWN 0, HEUVELTON 0 (OT)
Two teams who have competed well throughout the season matched 100 minutes of scoreless soccer. Emma Showers made 11 saves as Morristown (2-2-1) and Emma LaFaver made two saves for the Bulldogs (2-1-1).
"Overall it was a pretty flat game. Not a lot of energy from either team. And not really many scoring opportunities. Our best chances came in overtime when Emily Gagnon had a couple nice crosses that we put over the cross bar," said Morristown Coach Chris Showers. "Kassidy Sullivan had a very nice defensive game and Emma Showers really sucked up every ball that came her way in net. We just need to find some energy going forward." COLTON-PIERREPONT 3 ST. REGIS FALLS 0

Kaitlyn Houston scored twice with an assist for the Colts (5-1) and Isabella Vaccaro added another goal. Mya Lemieux added an assist for the Colts and Caydence Rondeau made 12 saves for the Saints.
