LISBON - The opening round of Class D action in the Section 10 Girls Soccer Tournament met all expectations in a day of outstanding defense on Saturday before large crowds which enjoyed the action and a picture perfect fall day.
A day which produced three one-goal games and a 100 minute tie decided by a shootout.
Lisbon advanced past Morristown in a shootout 3-2 after a 1-1 tie and visits third seeded Edwards-Knox on Wednesday .
Harrisville downed Heuvelton 2-1 to earn a trip to second seeded Chateaugay.
Colton-Pierrepont edged Tupper Lake 1-0 to plot a course to top-seeded Hammond.
Hermon-DeKalb turned back St. Regis Falls 2-1 and will visit fourth-seeded Parishville-Hopkinton.
All games are scheduled as 3 p.m. starts on Wednesday.
Lisbon 1 - Morristown 1 (Lisbon advances in shootout): Kailee Wood scored a tying goal in regulation and netted what proved to be the winning penalty shot in the shootout.
Wood scored unassisted in close with 11:20 remaining in the game to answer Hailey Ward who scored for Morristown 15 minutes into the second half off an Emily Gagnon corner kick.
"We came out a little slow and we had to get more people in the box on offense in the second half," said Lisbon Coach Taylor Abar after the game where her team forged a 16-7 advantage in shots.
"But our passing was good today. We moved the ball around well. We know what we have to do when we go to Edwards-Knox we have to contain two very fast players (Abby Hart, Lucy Frary). We have to work very hard on defense."
The Knights took the lead in the shootout as Abby Flack made a leaping save on the first Morristown shooter and Emily Jordan cooly converted in the leadoff spot for Lisbon. Morristown gained a 2-2 tie as Mia Johnson and Kylie O'Donnell scored and Karli Thompson scored as Lisbon's second shooter. Kailee Wood gave the Knights at 3-2 lead which held when the final two MCS shooters lifted shots over the goal.
Flack finished with eight saves in goal for Lisbon and Emma Showers handled 15 saves including one in the shootout.
"Wow is all I can say. That was a great soccer game. We played Lisbon 3 times and all three were battles. My kids gave me everything they had I couldn’t be more proud of them. We were a little flat early and it took us a little while to get going. I thought right before half we started to gain some momentum. Carly Piercey really worked hard to put crosses on net but we just couldn’t connect on one," said Morristown Coach Chris Showers.
"Our defense played very aggressive and that’s what we need. Kaley Dulmage did a great job of marking Emily Jordan who just a tremendous player. Emma Showers was solid in net. Anna Stout left everything out there on the field. She didn’t hold back and made a huge play by clearing a ball that was going in the net. We are definitely gonna miss her next year.
In the second half I though we started to move the ball better and created more opportunities. Emily Gagnon has been working hard on her corner kicks. She sent one perfectly into the box and Hailey Ward put it in the net. She has really elevated her game the last couple weeks. I move her around a lot and she never complains. But we knew Lisbon would keep coming at us. And they did. We got a little deflated when they tied it up. But we keep working. We are a very young team and to go to PKs is great experience for us because you can’t really practice that moment. You can work on it and take shots but you can reciprocate that moment. Losing five important seniors last year I didn’t set expectations to high. But these kids showed they were up for the challenge. Coach Piercey and myself are so proud of the improvement each kid made individually and as a team. We couldn’t be more excited that we have 17 players returning next year. "
Harrisville 2 - Heuvelton 1: Harrisville goals were scored by Harlie Moore and Torie Moore and Dakota Mouthorp connected for the Bulldogs.
Heuvelton opened the scoring in third minute of the game when Mouthorp converted a setup by Molly Williams. Ten minutes later Harlie Moore pulled the Pirates even scoring a hard fought goal in the box.
Ten 10 minutes into the second half Torie Moore scored the game-winner.
"Chloe Benson and Cadence Atkinson, played exceptionally well for us on defense. We have other seniors like Bayleigh Spencer and Harlie Moore who are solid players up the middle for us who just take control when you need it. Torie Moore controlled the midfield. All the girls played extremely tough," said Harrisville Coach Cory Borden.
"That Heuvelton team has some good athletes with a good coach. They played a good game. I have been extremely proud of the way our girls play. A lot of heart in this group of ladies."
H-D 2 - St. Regis 1: The Green Demons opened a 2-0 lead at the half but could's pull-away from the Saints who received 14 saves from goaltender Mikayla Parkway facing 30 H-D shots. Hillary Jones and Jordyn Whitton scored unassisted goals for H-D and the Saints' Kaitlyn Arcadi scored the only goal of the second half.
Emery McQuade handled six saves for the Demons.
C-P 1 - Tupper Lake 0: Abeni Payne continued to produce clutch goals for the Colts who advanced past NAC East rival Tupper Lake. Payne scored in the 47th minute from Jaeleigh Jacot.
Natalie Butterfield made six saves in the shutout and Libbi Gillis handled 12 shots for the Lady Lumberjacks.
