Peru 59, Franklin Academy 6
It took the Peru Indians a total time of 1:48 seconds with the ball to make their statement against Franklin Academy Nov. 8.
The Chazy Eagles punched their ticket to the NYSPHSAA Class D Final Four with a 3-0 win over Section X's Lisbon Nov. 7.
In a game that saw few opportunities on frame, the Chateaugay Lady Bulldogs were able to find the difference maker in the first 10 minute overtime for a 2-1 win against Chazy Nov. 7 to advance to the Class D final four.
In what has become the annual matchup between arguably the two best coaches in Class D boys soccer, McAuliffe and the Chazy Eagles again claimed the Section VII/Class D boys soccer championship with a 0-0, 5-3 penalty kick win against Buehler and his first-year Elizabethtown-Lewis/Westport Griffins.
The Eagles dominated the sectional playoffs, allowing only one shot from an opponent in the 67th minute of the final game. The shot was not on goal.
There’s no better time to score your first win of the season then when a loss means its over.
