CHAZY - Despite frigid temperatures and a slick field, the Chazy boys soccer team continued their winning streak at their home field, with a final score of 4-0 against AuSable Valley in a non-league contest Oct. 13.
"I thought we possessed the ball pretty well," said Chazy head coach Rob McAuliffe. "I thought the goals that we got were good goals and good finishes."
Tyler Bulriss, Brandon Laurin, Kaleb Snide, and Andrew Rabideau each scored for the Eagles, who outshot their CVAC opponents 14-5.
However, AuSable Valley keeper T.J. Burl defended the goal well, saving six shots from the Eagles. Austin Santor collected two saves for the shutout.
Overall, McAuliffe felt the team came prepared to play.
"It was the seniors last game, and I think as long as we came here focused and defended well, that we should be able to possess the ball enough to generate some chances," said McAuliffe, adding Kaleb Snide and Jordan Barriere played exceptionally well.
Despite the loss, Patriots coach Bob Hamilton was proud of his team and felt the offense possessed the ball well.
"Obviously Chazy's a pretty decent club," said Hamilton. "The haven't lost a game. So they're very good."
"I think if we had scored in the first half when we had the chance in front of the goal, it would have been a 1-1 game," he added. "It would have been a great opportunity and [we] missed it. It just went downhill from there."
