M-W Advances To Soccer Finals; Vball Season Ends

NORFOLK - A forgetball first half of the season has been superceded by a very memorable finish for the Madrid-Waddington Girls Soccer team.

After going 0-5-2 in their first seven games the Jackets have gone 6-3-1 and put together a three-game winning streak which has carried back to the Section 10 Class C Championship game which will be played on Friday night at 5 p.m. SUNY Potsdam.

One day after the M-W Boys moved into Friday's 7 p.m. title game at SUNY Potsdam, the third-seeded Lady Jackets downed number two Norwood-Norfolk 2-1 on Wednesday.

In Section 10 Girls Volleyball action M-W dropped 3-0 series at Tupper Lake in the Class D semi-finals.

The third time proved to be charm for M-W (6-8-3) in Wednesday's game at N-N (8-6-2) and the Jackets will look to continue the trend on Friday night against top-seeded Brushton-Moira (12-4-1) which advanced past St. Lawrence Central.

In the NAC season M-W tied N-N at 1-1 and dropped a 3-2 decision. The Jackets will be looking to reverse 3-0 and 2-1 loss when they square off with B-M for the sectional title and New York State Tournament berth.

Lydia Thomas of M-W opened the scoring with an unassisted goal by Lydia Thomas which stood for a 1-0 halftime lead. N-N pulled even in the 11th minute of the second half when KJ Belmore buried a direct kick.

Alexis Sullivan netted the game-winner with a determined finish with just three minutes remaining in the game.

"The girls played hard against a tough N-N team. We kept our composure and Lexi Sullivan did a great job finishing on the last goal," said M-W Coach Justin Richards.

"My defense played solid and we are looking forward to playing Brushton-Moira on Friday."

Brushton-Moira 2, St. Lawrence 1: The Panthers advanced past a gritty SLC (0-15-2) effort on the strength of unassisted goals by Teaghan Phelan and Natalie Beachy and a seven-save shutout by goaltender Natalie Palmer.

Madison McLean netted a penalty shot for SLC and Hannah Agans made 12 saves in goal.
