There was a shift in the Suburban Council girls soccer standings Tuesday after the top two teams in the North and South divisions played crossover games.
Bethlehem (7-2-1) defeated Niskayuna (8-2-0) 2-1 in Delmar and bumped the Silver Warriors into second place in the North Division, while South Division leader Guilderland (7-1-2) tied Saratoga Springs (7-1-2) 1-1 in Guilderland. Saratoga moved ahead of Niskayuna in the North Division standings with the tie.
Niskayuna led 1-0 at halftime before Jackie Kearney tied the score for Bethlehem off a Stephanie Dootz pass. Dootz then scored the game winner off a feed from Cassie Smith.
Goaltender Katie Nickles stopped 14 of the 15 shots she faced to help the Lady Eagles gain an important cross-divisional victory. Meghan Doyle had Niskayuna's lone goal, and Katie Hartlage made nine saves in goal.
Guilderland became only the third team to score a goal against Saratoga when Laurie Knapp struck in the second half off a Marissa Cubillos pass. Ellery Bianco tied the game for the Blue Streaks 10 minutes later, and neither team scored again.
Lady Dutch goaltender Jenna Cubello had 10 saves, while Liz Rogan stopped six shots for the Blue Streaks.
Bethlehem remained the lone undefeated Suburban Council boys soccer team after playing Niskayuna to a scoreless tie Tuesday in Niskayuna.
The Eagles (7-0-2) out-shot the Silver Warriors (3-4-3) 7-2, but Niskayuna goaltender Christian Esposito stopped every shot he faced to earn the shutout. Bethlehem keeper Alex Kessler needed only two saves to do the same.
