Black Horses’ Undefeated Dream Season

By | Sports

Capture Class C Field Hockey Crown 

SCHUYLERVILLE – This team has been so good this year, it’s almost an upset when they get scored upon. 


Paced by senior Kaitlyn Gunter’s three goals, the Schuylerville Black Horses varsity field hockey team rose to the challenge of ending the two-year championship reign of top-ranked Hoosick Falls on Sunday, November 1, and captured the Section II Class C title by a 3-1 score. Gunter’s first two goals came in the first half - both assisted by senior Ali Burnham - with 25:35 and 14:29 remaining. 


Following a Hoosick Falls goal by Liz Ryan at 19:58 remaining, Gunter completed her hat trick with 3:31 to go, assisted by senior Joanna Gaertner. The Black Horses are now 19-0, and will advance to the state quarterfinals against Cazenovia at Cicero/North Syracuse next Sunday, November 8. During their rampage, Schuylerville’s stifling defense, anchored by junior goalkeeper Hunter VanArnum, recorded 14 shutouts and only allowed 2 goals in one match. 


In other action this Sunday, #1 ranked Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake shut out Queensbury in Class B, 2 - 0, with goals by senior Lexie Ball (assisted by freshman Sadie Mitchell) with 15:56 remaining in the first half, and senior Julia LeVan (assisted by senior Elise Zwicklbauer) with 28:09 remaining in the second. Senior goalkeeper Brittany Ryan recorded 3 saves in the Spartans’ win. 



In Class A, Number 1 ranked Shenendehowa bested Saratoga Springs by a 2-1 score. All the scoring came in the first half, with the decisive tally by junior Taryn Marra (assisted by Kelly Quinn, who also scored Shen’s first goal- with Marra assisting) with 14:30 remaining. Senior Captain Marisa Larkin (assisted by junior Mimi Liebers) scored Saratoga’s lone tally. Both Shenendehowa and Burnt Hills will advance to their respective class’ quarterfinals next weekend.
