ORLEANSâ€“Well what can you saw about Tyrah Urie. 19 regular season goals, and in game one of the play-offs, the freshman netted two more to give Lake Region the 2-1 win against Woodstock on Wednesday afternoon.
However, things are not all sugar and spice and everything nice in Coach Urie's mind, and he had no problem letting me know that his girls were not 100 percent in the game yesterday.
"We did not seem to be playing a very good mental game, which, when you get into the play-offs, you have got to be prepared. You can't make as many mental mistakes as we just did and expect to win."
NEWPORT-The stage was set. A rested healthy North Country Falcons girlâ€™s soccer team was poised and ready to defend home turf in Division Oneâ€™s first round. With ten victories recorded during the fall campaign, this team was coming off seven straight wins. A seasoned group of Falcons girls had gone through the soccer wars together with the core dominated by proud seniors.
Rice Memorial had other ideas. The Green Knights struck for two goals in the games first 7 minutes and controlled play for large segments of the game winning the first round match 3-0.
CHELSEA -- The #14 seed Craftsbury Academy Chargers faced off against the #3 seed Chelsea Red Devils in the opening round of the Division 4 State Playoffs. The Chargers gave it all they could, but it was not enough and the Red Devils walked away with a 6-1 victory.
Coach Mike Ruetz said that his team â€śCame out hot and was ready to play. The passes were on target and the touches on the ball were great. Our offense flowed and worked together and the defense played tremendous against the constant Chelsea pressure.â€ť
Craftsbury would head to the half only trailing by a score of 1-0.
