Queensbury remained the only undefeated boys soccer team in the Foothills Council with a 2-0 victory over South Glens Falls Wednesday, Sept. 19.

Brendan Duffy added an insurance goal with less than 14 minutes left in regulation for the Spartans (7-0, 9-1).

Queensbury goalkeeper Ethan Willis made six saves and received some fortunate bounces, as three South High shots hit either the crossbar or the goalposts. David Cohen had seven saves between the posts for the Bulldogs.

Elsewhere in the Foothills Council, Hudson Falls defeated Glens Falls 2-0, and Broadalbin-Perth edged Amsterdam 1-0 in double overtime.

Shane Grimes scored on a penalty kick at the four-minute mark, and Nik Heasley added a goal four minutes later for Hudson Falls (4-3, 5-4). Goalies Justin Fenton and Joey Potvin stopped a combined total of eight Glens Falls shots.

Ben Difiore had five saves for Glens Falls (2-5, 2-6).

Jared Eipp struck a 30-yard direct kick into the back of the goal in the second 10-minute overtime period to give Broadalbin-Perth (4-3, 5-3) a victory over its Route 30 rival.

Ian Healy had six saves in goal for Amsterdam (2-5), while John Marsden made six stops for Broadalbin-Perth.
