Willsboro's Clay Sherman scored the second goal against Northern Adirondack as the Warriors recorded a 2-0 win against the Bobcats Sept. 14.
Getting an early goal is always good for momentum, as was the case in a several boys varsity soccer games on Sept. 14.
In Willsboro, Jeff Bigelow scored on an assist from Nick Arnold in the seventh minute as the Willsboro Warriors scored a 2-0 win against Northern Adirondack.
“In our three victories this season, we have scored in the first five-to-10 minutes, or even earlier,” Warriors head coach Andrew Lee said. “We did what we needed to do for the win.”
The Warriors kept the one goal advantage until the 68th minute, when Clay Sherman took a pass from Arnold, beat three NAC defenders and fired a shot from distance that went past Bobcats goalie Ethan Mousseau to the low, near post side.
“That helped give us a breather,” Lee said.
“We played well in the middle of the field and defensively,” Northern Adirondack head coach Peter Kowalowski. “We had a couple of outside chances, and I am not displeased at all with our effort. Willsboro is a good team.”
Lee said that the Bobcats did a good job in limiting the chances the Warriors had to score.
“It wasn’t one of our better possession games,” Lee said. “NAC did a good job disrupting our passes and stayed with their men and didn’t ball chase. I felt, though, that we still controlled play even though they limited us in quality opportunities.”
Willsboro held a 19-11 advantage in shots, with Mousseau making 11 saves for the Bobcats and Cody Sayward making nine saves for the Warriors.
