Spa Catholic (2-5) had a chance to tie the game on a penalty kick, but Waterford-Halfmoon goalie Bobby Valigorski stopped Dante Marin’s attempt to maintain the lead.

Mechanicville (5-1) earned a 3-1 road win over Greenwich (5-3). Jeff Luce and Kevin Charette tallied in the second half to propel the Red Raiders, who are 5-0 against Wasaren League opponents this season.
