Broadalbin-Perth 3, ICC 2
In a non-league matchup that saw two very evenly matched sides battle in a possible sectional preview, it was the Patriots of Broadalbin-Perth that edged the Ichabod Crane Riders, 3-2.
Both teams came out very strong and moved the ball up and down the pitch to set up chances, but it was the Patriots that scored first on a volley by Nick Bianco over the Rider’s keeper. Landon Russom’s pass set up the score.
Ichabod came back and was awarded a penalty kick when Joe Desmonie was taken down from behind in the penalty area. Desmonie stood at the spot and sent the ball to the back of the net to level the game at 1-1.
Broadalbin did not need much time to take the lead once again, when a nicely placed cross found the head of an awaiting Patriot and deflected the path just enough, and slipped it just inside the far post out of the keeper’s reach. Bianco had the header for his second score, and Ethan Brott the assist. Broadalbin would take a 2-1 lead going into the half.
Ichabod Crane came out in the 2nd half and found a different gear. The Riders moved the ball much faster up the pitch to create more chances to score. Broadalbin mounted an attack and on a lifted pass the Patriot winger’s cross appeared to be handled by the Rider’s defender.
The official paused and then awarded the PK which was nesteled into the left corner of net by Sam Rogers and put Broadalbin up, 3-1. Rogers followed that by twice hitting the crossbar to almost put the game out of reach for the Riders.
Ichabod Crane was not done, though. A few moments later, Zach Zeyak put through a ball to Joe Desmonie, who placed a beautiful strike past the Patriots keeper.
The Riders were relentless, looking for that equalizing goal, but were denied.
Shots on frame for the match were 13-11 in favor of Broadalbin-Perth, and corners were 2-2.
