Manlius-Pebble Hill senior midfielder Jimmy Gavigan (25) goes up for a header toward Bishop Grimes goalie Mike Bespiaty in last Wednesday’s game. The Trojans and Cobras played to a 2-2 draw.
It proved nervous early, as Elisa Camilleri’s goal helped LaFayette earn a 1-1 first-half tie, but Grimes’ attack took over in the late stages with four unanswered goals.
Kennedy Yearby, who scored twice, and Toni Laneve, with three assists, led that push, while Ellen Callahan, Alex Guhin and Jordan Vaught managed one goal apiece.
The Cobras lost, though, to Fabius-Pompey 1-0 Thursday night. Morgan had a sensational outing, earning 16 saves, and kept everything out until Macey Morse scored in the second half to put the Falcons in front.
MPH’s girls used a big first half to sail past Faith Heritage 4-2. The Trojans were up 3-0 by halftime, so it was able to withstand the Saints’ late-game push.
Terry Netusil led the whole effort, scoring twice and assisting on the other two goals, by Katie Blandford and Alexa Martinez-Martineau. When Blanford was in the net, she combined with Sammy Appleby for 13 saves.
The Trojans made it back-to-back wins on Friday, shutting out LaFayette 3-0. All the goals came in the first half as Blanford, Martinez-Martineau and Vicki Gregory converted and Netusil finished with a pair of assists.
