M-W, P-H Win Openers, Rekindle NAC East Race

Madrid-Waddington and Parishville-Hopkinton staged a season-long race for the NAC East Boys Soccer title last season. The rekindled it on Saturday as both teams won their season efforts.

M-W downed St. Lawrence Central 2-1 and P-H blanked Colton-Pierrepont 3-0.


Matt Robinson's penalty kick lifted the Yellowjackets scoring just one minute after SLC gained a 1-1 tie.

Robinson and Ethan Bailey combined to set up Brady VanBuren for the first goal of the day which broke a 0-0 halftime tie and Hayden Perkins answered for the Larries.

"Good game today. We didn’t have the opportunity to scrimmage anyone this year so this was first game since last year. I was real happy with the way we controlled the play. We moved it around pretty well and for a first year defense with no seniors they held their own. We came out and got some quick chances but then we lost some tough 50/50 balls. We did everything but put it in the net the first half," said M-W Coach Ryan Robinson.

"We came out in the second half and established the middle of the field with Matthew Robinson and Ethan Bailey. They worked together and fed a through pass to Brody VanBuren and he put it away. We then had a defensive lapse and the Perkins kid pushed one in. We came right beck a minute later and we drew a PK kick when a VanBuren got taken down in the box. Matthew Robinson buried the PK and that sealed the win."

Jacob Morgan stopped three shots in the M-W goal and Tom Storin handled nine saves for SLC.

"We have to travel to Brushton-Moira next which is never an easy place to play. Adam Britton does a great every year with his team and the last time we saw them was in the championship game. I can not say it enough on how great it is to just see the teams playing," said Robinson.
