CLIFTON PARK — Here is what you need to know for today, plus the weekend, about Shenendehowa athletics.
(Programming note: We’ll be back Tuesday, Sept. 8, with our next rundown.)
BOYS’ SOCCER: Shenendehowa 6, Averill Park 0
GIRLS’ SOCCER: Shenendehowa 3, Averill Park 1
GIRLS’ TENNIS: Shenendehowa 6, Averill Park 3
Between the Shenendehowa boys’ soccer and Shenendehowa girls’ soccer teams, nine goals were scored Thursday — and only freshman Jen Kirker registered multiple goals.
Kendra Harbinger added the other score for the girls, while the boys received goals from Byron Drysdale, Joe Ferlo, Chris Jupin, Aiden May, Kyle Pfaff, and Malik Sykes.
UPCOMING TOP GAME
Can’t keep it to one — way too many good ones coming up.
The Shenendehowa field hockey squad gets its chance for revenge today against Saratoga Springs — in a game that will be played at Schuylerville — after losing to the club in last year’s title game; also today, the Shenendehowa boys’ volleyball squad takes its crack at the five-team defending Section II champions when it visits Bethlehem, who also beat the Plainsmen in last year’s final.
Then, Saturday, we get things started for Shenendehowa football, as the defending Section II Class AA champions travel to the Carrier Dome in Syracuse to face a Canisius squad which finished last season ranked No. 1 in the state.
