M-W Seniors Combine On OT Goal; Canton Rolls
MADRID - Over the years Madrid-Waddington and Brushton-Moira have played any number of memorable NAC East and Section 10 Class C boys soccer games.
There will be no sectional tournament this year and the Yellowjackets and Panthers crammed a host of highlights into Saturday's Senior Day game at M-W where the host Yellowjackets climbed to 7-1 with a 4-3 overtime win to thwart an upset bid by 1-8 B-M in the rivalry game.
In other NAC East action Parishville-Hopkinton climbed to 7-0 with a 7-0 win over Chateaugay and 7-3-1 Colton-Pierrepont blanked St. Lawrence Central.
In the NAC Central Canton remained undefeated with a 5-0 win over Massena.
MADRID-WADDINGTON 4 - BRUSHTON-MOIRA 3 OT
Brody VanBuren scored a golden goal from fellow senior Ethan Bailey at 7:23 of overtime to lift the Yellow Jackets past the Panthers who scored twice in the first 30 minutes on goals from Wayne Palmer and Josh Kennedy. Palmer buried a 30-yard shot and Kennedy scored on a break-away.
"It was so great to see Ethan get that assist by feeding a perfect ball to Brody to seal the win. Ethan is not the biggest player but he just knows what to do when he gets the ball. He has learned so much since playing varsity and today he showed it," said M-W Coach Ryan Robinson.
"It was a a great game for senior day and for the privilege to keep playing. I was pretty proud of the way our young team kept its composure."
Kennedy also answered the three-goal surge by the Yellowjackets by scoring on a 50-50 ball with goaltender Jacob Morgan with 3:45 to play to send the game into overtime.
M-W's third senior Kyle Stoner also scored in M-W's second half surge led by Matthew Robinson who teamed with Silas Kent to control the midfield for much of the contest. Robinson assisted on a Kyle Stoner goal to ignite the M-W offense, then scored unassisted and then set up Connor Arquiett for the go-ahead goal for 3-2 lead which lasted 30 seconds before Josh Kennedy pulled B-M even.
"Hats off to the job Adam Britton and the job he is doing at Brushton-Moira. At one point Adam had a 10-man roster and lost his most experienced player and top goal scorer to an ankle fracture. He does a great job motivating his teams every year and today was no exception," said M-W Coach Ryan Robinson.
"They got off the bus and just took it to us. We controlled the middle of the field but they kept constant pressure on us and disrupted our runs."
Jacob Morgan finished with two saves for M-W and Jamie Gagnow had nine saves for B-M.
COLTON-PIERREPONT 3, ST. LAWRENCE 0
Ollie Johnson and Aiden Hoose each delivered a goal and an assist for the 7-3-1 Colts and Theo Hughes scored on a pretty headball on a corner kick by Nate Lemieux. Harlee Besio made six saves in the shutout.
