SMS boys, girls win
STRATTON— Both the Stratton Mountain boys and girls Soccer teams took on Twin Valley on Luckenbill Field this weekend and both emerged victorious.
The Lady Bears improved their season record to 5-0-0 with their 5-1 win over Twin Valley on Saturday.
Eliza Sullivan was the first to score with an assist from midfielder Chloe Lathrop and Sullivan soon scored again, this time unassisted.
Twin Valley capitalized on an uncharacteristic mistake in the SMS backfield, scoring once before Lathrop scored the Bears' third goal with an assist from freshman Jolie Des Fosses.
Sullivan notched SMS' fifth goal with an incredibly placed blast
The SMS boys team emerged as 2-1 winners.
The game started out fast-paced with each side creating scoring opportunities, and goalkeeper Jake Jacobi made a couple of spectacular saves to keep the score 0-0.
SMS finally broke the ice when Harrison Digangi fed Carlo Muscarella with a through ball. Muscarella's shot hit the right post, before Bobby Stevenish jumped on the rebound and fired another shot which was deflected, and Muscarella buried the second rebound for the score.
The battle continued to be played evenly when Twin Valley was awarded a penalty kick with four minutes left in the half, which they finished to make the score 1-1 at the halftime.
Early in the second half, Owen Croce crashed the net from his wing defender position on a corner kick; he got a piece of the ball which then ricocheted out to the 18 yard line, where Yuto Takai hit a beautiful shot into the back of the net.
