continued But in the second half the Hornets were reenergized, and tied it on Sarah Rosenbaum’s goal. Then, with three minutes left in regulation, Cheyenne Hall beat Courtney Henderson for the game-winner. Alexis Muraco and Frankie Boyer each got credit for assists.
In the lead-up, both sides had mixed results. When the CBA girls edged past Cortland 1-0 last Monday night, it gave Mike McQuatters his 100th win as the Brothers’ head coach.
Eva Gordon assisted on Olivia Pitonzo’s second-half goal that broke a 0-0 deadlock, and Courtney Henderson stopped all nine shots she faced. Two days later, CBA had an easier time of it, beating Phoenix 6-0.
F-M’s girls hammered Utica Proctor 7-0 last Tuesday as Hall picked up a three-goal hat trick. Rosenbaum found the net twice, while Jess Straub managed a goal and two assists. Marri Ryu added one goal and one assist. Katie Randall and Kaitlyn DeHority earned assists, too.
Now the Hornets tried to avenge its 3-1, Sept. 9 defeat to Liverpool on its home turf 12 days later. It was closer, but once again the Hornets lost to the Warriors in a 2-1 decision.
Nina Quigley withstood plenty of attacks on her way to 14 saves, and F-M got on the board with Ryu’s second-half goal, fed by Straub. However, Liverpool used goals by Kim Murphy and Julia Heberger to take the lead, and got 10 saves from Tori Corsaro to hang on.
By contrast, on Tuesday both the F-M and CBA boys sides met serious resistance. The Hornets had to settle for a 0-0 draw with Liverpool, while the Brothers took its first loss of the season, 2-1, to Fulton.
F-M, with Liverpool, found itself in the same kind of battle that it had against Cicero-North Syracuse on Sept. 10. The only difference was that, this time, neither side would convert in regulation or overtime, the Hornets unable to get any of its 10 shots past Warrior goalie Karl Miller.
