"What I tried to sell the guys at the beginning of the year is that I'm going to play the best, and so far it seems that the best are our younger guys," said Bailey.
The younger guys have been coming through of late. Turner " one of two sophomores that start for Bailey " scored the lone goal in Scotia-Glenville's 1-0 league win against Broadalbin-Perth Tuesday. Last Friday, it was juniors Alescio and Gramm Gordon who tallied in the Tartans' 2-0 victory over Glens Falls.
All the while, Scotia-Glenville's defense has been coming up big when needed. When Broadalbin-Perth threatened to score early in the first half of Tuesday's game, junior Kullen Bailey cleared the ball before it crossed the goal line. Senior goaltender Dan Saccocio made the remainder of the saves to help the Tartans post their third consecutive shutout.
Bailey said he expects his team to receive more tests in the coming days, starting with Thursday's game at Queensbury.
"There was a lot of parity in the league last year," said Bailey. "In my mind, Queensbury and South Glens Falls are the favorites, but you never know."
Still, as long as Scotia-Glenville keeps attacking, Bailey said his team has a chance.
"Honestly, I think we have the horses to compete for the league title if we stay healthy," said Bailey.
Schalmont (4-0, 6-0) " the team that defeated Scotia-Glenville " continued its early season dominance with a 5-0 Colonial Council victory over Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Tuesday.
A.J. Metzold scored three goals to lead the Sabres, who have outscored their first four Colonial Council opponents 15-2. Dom Pavoldi and Drake Sichak added the other goals.
