SCHUYLERVILLE — The Lady Horses trampled Glens Falls on Wednesday, September 21 with a score of 13-0. Nine Schuylerville players tallied goals, including firsts of the season for Alexa Goldenberg (2), Emma Delaney (2; First Varsity or JV goals, ever); and Ashley Flynn (First Varsity goal). Maddy Nevins had 2 goals and 4 assists. Glens Falls Goalkeeper, Makayla Bennett, a recent JV call-up, played courageously, making 22 saves.
Schuylerville coach Mike Kopp said, “Our team is having an excellent start, currently in first place in the Foot Hills Council. State rankings just came out and we’re ranking 15th for the entire NYS for class B. I’m excited for this year. We brought a lot of our kids back from last year, a lot of experience coming back, and the new faces are fitting in seamlessly – it’s been a dream season so far.”
Co-captains Maddy Nevins and Amy Moreau lead the team. “They are top players,” said Kopp, “unselfish, really all about the team.” Junior Emily Vallee leads the team scoring, and freshman Cassandra Cooper leads the team with assists.
Before the game, Kopp said the team had only surrendered one goal in the last 420 minutes of play, over five games. “Pretty incredible stuff,” he said. “I am supremely proud. These kids are honors students, they volunteer, it’s great parenting. It’s a good time to be a coach for Schuylerville soccer, I can tell you that.”

B-Spa Boys Soccer
Tuesday afternoon September 20, Ballston Spa hosted Shenendehowa. It was a big match for both teams as it was televised by TWC sports and created a lot of hype. Shen dominated most of the possession and found their midfielders and the strikers well throughout the game. Ballston Spa looked to play long balls to the wings and beat the outside backs with their speed. The game went scoreless throughout both halves. Shen's Nick Evans scored from Derek Nolan to give Shen the victory in OT. Both teams fought very hard.
