Loudonville Christian moves above .500 with shutout

The Loudonville Christian girls soccer team raised its Central Hudson Valley League record over .500 with Monday's 3-0 victory over New Lebanon.

Mya Johnson had a goal and an assist to lead the Eagles (3-2 league, 4-3 overall) to their third consecutive win. Laura Buice and Emily Musial added the other goals.

Goaltender Cassidy Allen picked up her third shutout of the season by stopping all 10 New Lebanon shots she faced.

Loudonville Christian entered the game off last week's league wins over Waterford and Doane Stuart.

The Eagles edged Waterford 2-1 last Wednesday in overtime. Hannah Musial scored in the first overtime period to give Loudonville Christian the go-ahead goal.

Johnson tallied the other goal, and Allen made three saves for the Eagles. Ashley Lefebvre scored in the first half for Waterford.

Loudonville Christian had no trouble with Doane Stuart last Friday. The Eagles scored six times in the second half to pull away for an 8-0 victory.

Julie Fijal recorded a hat trick to lead a balanced Loudonville Christian offense. Elisabeth Mistur contributed two goals and an assist, while Jessica Parry added a pair of assists.

Loudonville Christian looked to extend its winning streak to four games Tuesday when it traveled to Troy to face Emma Willard.

In other girls soccer action, Shaker and Colonie looked to gain Suburban Council wins on the road Tuesday. The Blue Bison met Ballston Spa, while the Garnet Raiders traveled to Mohonasen.

Shaker (1-4-1) entered the win column for the first time this season last Thursday with a 3-1 victory over Columbia in Latham.

Emily Vandenburgh scored twice to lead the Blue Bison, who had dropped their first four games before playing Guilderland to a scoreless tie last Tuesday. Justine Tiger added a goal, and two Shaker goaltenders combined to make three saves.

Colonie (0-6-0) was still looking for its first win of the season when it met Mohonasen Tuesday in a Suburban Council South Division game. The Garnet Raiders were coming off a 3-0 loss to Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake last Thursday.

Goaltender Kailey Kowalski did what she could to keep Colonie in the game against the Spartans. Kowalski stopped 15 of the 18 shots she faced in the loss.

Brianne Hadcock recorded a goal and an assist to lead the defending Section II Class A champion Spartans (6-1-0)."
