Liverpool goes 2-1, takes close loss to Watertown

Kenny and Tortora both had four assists, while Ryan and Haven each got three assists. Ghabarou scored twice as Caveny got a goal and two assists. Mary Kate Bonanni, Mallory Eymer, Jenna Lippert and Lexi Knoblock had single goals, with Christie Hahn contributing an assist.

Meanwhile, Liverpool nearly got a high-quality win over visiting Fayetteville-Manlius last Tuesday night, but could not hold on to late lead in a 10-9 overtime defeat to the Hornets.

A strong first half appeared to give the Warriors full control, as it sailed to a 6-2 lead. Yet the Hornets reversed those numbers in the second half and forced an 8-8 tie, and though Liverpool scored in the first OT period, so did F-M, and it eventually pushed across the game-winner.

Kasi Cabrey led both sides with four goals, while Jen Kershner scored twice. Natalie Parkins, Julia Sardella and Rachel Kline had one goal apiece. F-M saw Jane Cote and Meg Kincaide each get three goals, with Olivia Tejan and Carly Primo adding two goals apiece.

The Warriors did prevail, 13-6, over Central Square, steadily pulling away from the Red Hawks after gaining a 6-2 halftime lead by having nine different players put in goals.

Only Cabrey and Maggie Tassone scored twice, with Kline, Christie Allen, Sierra DiPietro, Taylor Fahey, Megan Fitzpatrick and Farrah Ziaie also finding the net. Cassidy Hall added an assist.

Two days later, the Warriors took a 14-11 defeat to Watertown, who made the Section III Class B finals a season ago (falling to eventual state champion CBA) and was no. 8 in this season’s first state Class B poll.

All game long, the Warriors were within range of the Cyclones, largely because Cabrey was pouring in a season-best six goals and adding an assist. Kershner and Sardella added two goals apiece, with Kline getting one goal and one assist.

Still, Watertown fought its way to an 8-7 halftime lead, and held off all of Liverpool’s charges. Morgan Girardi led the Cyclones with four goals and one assist, while Olivia Miles and Madisyn Exford had three goals apiece, overcoming goalie Megan Evangelista’s 11 saves.
