B'ville girls soccer wins twice

With a pair of impressive road wins, the Baldwinsville girls soccer team improved its mark to 10-1 and stayed unbeaten against CNY Counties League foes.

First, the Bees visited Nottingham on Wednesday night, and proceeded to tear the Bulldogs apart in a 7-0 romp.

B'ville raced to a 4-0 halftime lead despite cold, windy conditions and did not let up. With all of Nottingham's defensive attention on the Firenze sisters, Samantha Yaro and Jamie Schmidt emerged, each putting in two goals.

The plan backfired, anyway, as Emma Firenze had a goal and two assists, while Jackie Firenze gained one goal and one assist. Lauren Roberts also scored. Megan Haney and Lana Vecchiarelli earned single assists.

Two days later, the Bees faced a tougher foe in Auburn and had to work a lot harder, but still shut out the Maroons 2-0.

All through the first half, B'ville had chances to score, only to get thwarted as Auburn goalie Aubrey Campbell proved sensational, earning 16 saves.

Still, the Bees stayed patient and, in the second half, broke through twice as Emma Firenze and Katie Gildemeyer each put in unassisted goals.

B'ville is back home this week, meeting Oswego on Wednesday and red-hot Fayetteville-Manlius in what promises to be an exciting Friday showdown.
