BRUSHTON — Norwood-Norfolk eliminated Class C’s top-seeded Brushton-Moira, 4-2 in a shootout on Wednesday to break a 1-1 tie.

After Emma Russell got the Panthers on the board off an assist from Savannah Beachy, first and early, at the game’s 15th minute, the Flyers matched Brushton’s defense for the remainder of regulation, allowing for Isabel Boyd to tie the game at the 79th minute for Norwood.

“We played our soccer, we controlled for a vast majority of (the game),” Brushton head coach Bryan Phelan said. “There were brief spells in the last 7-8 minutes of (regulation), where we didn’t get the ball out (of the 18) how we normally would and that filtered into one chance (for Norwood).”

Both sides held one another scoreless through two golden goal overtime periods, before Norwood outshot the Panthers in the shootout.

“Norwood is a solid team, they’re much better than their record reflects. They had the right kids in the right spots. It paid off and they were able to capitalize,” Phelan said. “They’re a quality team.”

BOYS SOCCER PLAYOFFS

CLASS D

LISBON 3, CHATEAUGAY 0

Section 10’s West Division champion, Lisbon, ended Chateaugay boys soccer’s playoff run, shutting out the Bulldogs 3-0 in Potsdam.

Chateaugay goalkeeper Owen Rockhill had eight saves in net.

The Knights put away two early goals in the 9th and 11th minute, to get out to a 2-0 head start on the Bulldogs. Chateaugay head coach Ted Martin thought the team came out flat, though added his team could have made it a closely contested game, if they had matched Lisbon’s energy early.

“It was a real deep hole to dig ourselves out of in a playoff game like that,” Martin said. “They came out with a lot of intensity and came right at us and we were on our heels.”

After surrendering a third goal to Lisbon, Chateaugay held its opponent scoreless for the game’s latter 40 minutes. But the Bulldogs could not get their offense going against the Class D boys’ top seed.

“It was too late, at that point,” Martin said. “If we started the first half the way we did the second half, it’d been a hell of a game.”
