A week that included a pair of losses — even to foes as strong as Baldwinsville and Skaneateles — did not sit well with the Cicero-North Syracuse boys soccer team.
So the Northstars started its climb back into everyone’s good graces by venturing to Utica Proctor last Tuesday night and putting together a 4-1 victory over the Raiders.
From a modest 1-0 halftime lead, CNS got clear behind the work of Josh Williams, who had a three-goal hat trick. Tyler DiScenza scored, too, while Darren Cooper finished with two assists and Nico Commisso earned a single assist.
Amid the Thursday deluge, the Northstars went to Sunnycrest Park to play Henninger, got the full game in and beat the Black Knights 3-0 thanks to Cooper’s first-half domination.
All the scoring came in the first half as Cooper earned a natural hat trick, three times putting shots past Henninger goalie Andrew Jackson as Commisso, Joe Giordano and Saio Barzee earned assists. From there, the Northstars made sure no one got hurt as Jon Runge took a long turn in goal and recorded five saves to preserve the shutout.
CNS saw its girls soccer team light up the board in last Tuesday’s match with Utica Proctor at Archie Hall Stadium, not stopping until it had an 11-1 victory in the books.
It was 7-1 by halftime, and Rachel Bowles enjoyed a career-best effort, pouring in six goals. Aubrey Harris was quite good, too, scoring twice and adding a pair of assists, while Taylor Zelenyak, Brittany McGraw WIxson and Chelsea Connors each had one goal. Lexi Williamson got two assists as Alyssa Elwood put up one assist.
With the rainout of Thursday’s home game with Henninger, the Northstars could look ahead to three big road games this week at Fayetteville-Manlius, Liverpool and West Genesee — just as the boys Northstars meet the Warriors and Wildcats at Gillette.
