League-leading Queensbury withstood Amsterdam goalkeeper Ian Healy’s outstanding performance to defeat the Rugged Rams 3-1 Thursday, Oct. 4, in a Foothills Council boys soccer game.
Healy kept the Spartans (10-0-0 league, 12-1-0 overall) off the scoreboard in the first half and finished the game with 19 saves. However, he couldn’t stem the tide forever, as Queensbury pulled ahead on goals by Peter Crawford and Teddy Borgos in the final 21 minutes.
Aidan Jordi-Donnelly gave Queensbury a 1-0 lead nine minutes into the second half, but Dwight Rose tallied a short time later for Amsterdam (4-7-0, 5-7-0) off a misplayed ball at midfield by the Spartans.
Elsewhere in the Foothills Council, Hudson Falls ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over Broadalbin-Perth. Michael Hunt had the game winner for the Tigers (5-6-0, 7-7-0) with less than 12 minutes left in the second half, and James Prakelt added an insurance goal 1:21 later.
Carter Lewis also tallied for Hudson Falls, and Ryan Melucci added a pair of assists. Goalies Justin Fenton and Joey Potvin had a combined total of six saves.
Jared Eipp scored off an indirect kick, and John Marsden had four saves in goal for Broadalbin-Perth (6-5-0, 7-6-0).
