SCHUYLERVILLE — On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Schuylerville boys’ and girls’ soccer teams hosted Queensbury High School for their annual “Kickin’ Out Cancer” game that doubles as a fundraiser to help those affected by the disease. This year, the funds were directed toward two long-time Schuylerville school employees. The event raised several thousand dollars. 

The girls’ game featured two state-ranked teams in Schuylerville (ranked #6 in the Class B State rankings) and Queensbury (ranked #14 in the Class A State rankings). After a scoreless first half, Bayley Duffy scored two second half goals to seal the victory for Queensbury. Schuylerville had previously beaten Queensbury 2-0. Schuylerville and Queensbury are now tied for first place in the Foothills Council with one loss each - only beaten by one another. 

The Queensbury boys beat the Schuylerville Boys 1-0 on a fantastic goal by Luke Eichen with one minute left in the game. While the game was back and forth all night, Eichen’s effort solidified the win for Queensbury. Both teams are also battling for the Foothills Council championship and will most likely meet again later in the season.
