---- — LAKE PLACID — Rachel Knapp’s goal in the second half broke up a scoreless tie and was enough to give AuSable Valley a 1-0 victory over Lake Placid 1-0 in a non-divisional girls’ soccer game Monday.
After both teams traded possessions throughout the first half, the Patriots took control in the second half. Midway through, Megan Strong sent a direct kick into the box that Knapp knocked in for the game’s only goal.
“There were a lot of scrambles near the net for both teams,” AuSable Valley coach Bruce Bourgeois said. “Both defenses and keepers played well.”
Nichole Pulsifer made nine stops for the shutout while Lake Placid’s Liz Leff had 10 saves.
