On a cold and wet day in Schaghticoke, Hoosic Valley scored three unanswered goals in the second half. All three goals came from different players on the Indians.
Greenwich scored their one goal with only 2:29 left in the first half. Jack Fortier was the one and only to put the ball in the back of the net for the Witches.
In the first 10 minutes in the game, Greenwich and the Valley were back and forth bring the ball up and down each side. After that Hoosic Valley held possession for about 70% of the game. Greenwich kept making pushes when they got control of the ball.
“We missed one assignment the whole game and they took advantage of it and put it in,” said Hoosic Valley head coach Jason Coffin.
After the half, the Valley was pushing and pushing and finally put one through. Tyler Eddy netted one seven minutes in and that’s when things started going right for the Indians. Six minutes later after a handball in the box and a great save from Greenwich goalie Owen Keech, Tom Rice got the rebound and put it in the far corner.
Greenwich started taking more shots and getting on the Valley side but they kept missing wide. The refs gave out two yellow cards within a minute span and it kept stopping a Hoosic Valleys’ run to give it back to Greenwich. Logan Reilly, a Hoosic Valley Junior striker put one through with three minutes left to put the game out of reach.
“We are really playing like a team right now and we feel good going into every game and we feel like we can compete with anyone,” Reilly said.
Hoosic Valley outshot Greenwich 14-11 in the game. Both coaches think that anyone from 4-12 will be able to make a run in sectionals this year in Class C.
Both teams look great in the future as both teams only graduate four seniors each.
