Alexander Girls nip Lyndonville 1-0

posted by Chad Flint in sports.

The Alexander Girl's soccer team pushed its league record to 2-1-1 and overall record to 2-2-2 with a 1-0 win over Lyndonville at home on Friday.  Lyndonville battled tough but was unable to crack a stout Alexander defense throughout the game.

Alexander scored the games only goal with nearly 30 minutes gone in the 1st half as Sophomore Autumn Atkinson sent a corner in from the right side that hit a defender and came directly to Senior Rachel Pettys who fired the ball in the left hand side of the net for the 1-0 lead.  Alexander's defense of Sophmores Savannah VanSon, Claire Hartl, Senior Rachel Nielans, 8th grader Gabby Kwiatek, and Junior Leah Johnson made that lead stand up as Sophmore Hannah Wilson had to make just 4 saves to register her first clean sheet of the season.

Alexander Junior forward Anna Dominick had a strong game up top having two great chances on net, one in each half only to be stopped by the Lyndonville keeper each time.  Alexander had roughtly a 65-35 possession advantage throughout the game and it helped wear down a tough Lyndonville team.

With the win the Genesee Region Division I title still seems up for grabs with Pembroke, Alexander, Byron-Bergen, and Holley all remaining in the mix.
