Nisky ends Bethlehem's shutout streak

The Niskayuna girls soccer team ended the season by ending Bethlehem's six-game shutout streak with a 4-1 victory Monday.

The Lady Eagles entered the game off a 1-0 upset over previously-unbeaten Shenendehowa, but the Silver Warriors quickly gained the advantage with two first half goals. Niskayuna extended the lead in the second half before Becca Lee broke up the Silver Warriors' shutout bid with a goal for Bethlehem.

Brooke Knowlton had three goals and assisted on Whitney Frary's tally to lead Niskayuna to its fourth win in its last five games. Marie Mutryn made 11 saves.

The victory didn't improve Niskayuna's third-place finish in the Blue Division standings, but it gave the Silver Warriors some momentum heading into the class AA Sectionals, where they are the No. 4 seed. Shen is the No. 1 seed, followed by Columbia at No. 2 and Bethlehem at No. 3.
