Niskayuna shuts out Shaker

The Niskayuna boys soccer team won for the third time in its last four games by shutting out Shaker 3-0 Tuesday in a Suburban Council North Division game.

Ethan Kelly scored a goal in each half, and Kyle Maiuccoro added a goal off a feed from Tanner MacIvor for the Silver Warriors (6-7). Ryan Tauss assisted on both of Kelly's goals.

The victory over Shaker came five days after Niskayuna suffered a 1-0 overtime loss to Saratoga Springs. The game was scoreless until the final minute of the second overtime, when Will Johns scored off a deflection for the Blue Streaks.

Niskayuna has three games remaining in the regular season, beginning with Thursday's North Division game at Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake.
