Greene 3, Vestal 1
GREENE – Greene moved toward a STAC division title with its second victory over Vestal Thursday afternoon.
With Vestal pressuring for the tying goal, the Trojans (10-1) took advantage of a Vestal turnover. A send-in pass on a penalty corner skipped through the penalty circle putting Greene on the attack. Amy David sent Erin Smith a pass into the Vestal circle, and Smith cashed in with a pivotal insurance tally at 3:45 of the second half. “At that point, it was a huge turnaround because Vestal was coming on,” said Greene coach Sue Carlin. “Our kids responded and executed to a ‘tee.’”
Smith was involved in the Trojans’ first two goals to help build a 2-0 lead. Smith set up Christine Conroe’s goal at 18:32 of the first half, and then sent a cross to Andrea Day for the two-goal lead at 20:19 of the second period.
Vestal pared the Greene lead at 11:45 of the second half on a penalty stroke.
Greene plays at Rome today in the first round of the Rome Tournament.
