Schalmont (Class B) and Queensbury (Class A) will represent Section 2 at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Boys Soccer Tournament this weekend in Middletown after they won regional titles Saturday, Nov. 3.

Schalmont tied Section 7’s Peru 2-2 in their regional, but punched its ticket to the state semifinals by edging Peru 4-3 in penalty kicks. Jared Smith hit the go-ahead penalty kick for the Sabres, and goalkeeper Ryan Taylor made a diving block with his feet on Tanner Spear’s attempt to end the session.

Peru scored twice in the first 14 minutes to take an early lead on Schalmont, but Ryan Edwards tallied with less than 17 minutes left in the first half to trim the deficit to 2-1.

Colonial Council boys soccer: Schalmont finds its offense in the second half to beat Cobleskill-Richmondville

Schalmont scored all of its goals in the second half to pull away for a 4-0 victory over Cobleskill-Richmondville Wednesday, Sept. 26, in a Colonial Council boys soccer game.

The Sabres had several scoring opportunities in the first half, but Bulldog goalkeeper Nick Beevers stopped them all. Cobleskill-Richmondville came close to getting on the scoreboard late in the first half with a pair of quality shots that Schalmont netminder Ryan Taylor tipped over the crossbar.

Ryan Edwards broke the scoreless tie by curling a long-distance shot past Beevers early in the second half. That opened the floodgates for the Sabres, as Jared Smith tallied two minutes later and added another goal later in the half to put the game out of Cobleskill-Richmondville’s reach. Dom Scalice ended the scoring with less than two minutes remaining.
