Burnt Hills survives Cortland in soccer regional

Here are my blog updates from Tuesday's New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class A regional girls soccer contest between Burnt Hills and Cortland.

My captain, my captain!
Burnt Hills senior captain, Judy Horan, came through once again, extending her senior season with the fourth successful penalty kick past Cortland's Katie Apley to give the Spartans a 4-2 penalty kick victory in the NYSPHSAA Class A regional.

Still tied after two overtimes
Things remain deadlocked at three goals apiece after two 10 minute overtimes. The game now goes into potentially two five minute sudden victory periods.

Overtime Cortland vs. Burnt Hills
Score tied at 3-3 and will now go to two 10 minute overtimes with no "golden goals" to determine a winner. We're stuck in the cold for another 20 minutes.

Tied again, this time 3-3
Burnt Hills appeared to break through with 6:12 left in regulation when Amber Goodrich headed in a direct kick by sophomore Monica Wolf for a 3-2 lead. The celebration was short-lived when Cortland's Casey marks drilled a goal from 25-yards out under the crossbat less than a minute later, tying the game at three goals each.

Cortland ties regional at 2-2
Burnt Hills coach Brian bold says that he doesn't like 2-0 leads and now we know why. Just 17 seconds into the second half, of the start, Cortland senior Natale Muska sent the ball rolling towards the goal. Burnt Hills goalkeeper Teegan Kelly came out and dove at the ball, but missed. The ball just kept on rolling. Burnt Hills came back with two solid attempts at goal, one was just caught by the keeper and another sailed high. Cortland would make them pay, when Muska beat two different Burnt Hills defenders one-on-one and drilled the ball over a leaping Teegan Kelly, tying the regional at two apiece with 30 minutes left in regulation.

Burnt Hills up 2-0 at the half
Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake's Chelsea Craig took advantage of a late rush by the Spartans late in the first half. With time winding down, the ball was sent to the final third and was headed into the goal box. Craig was there to settle the ball and send it on to the left corner. The Cortland goalie moved right but slipped on the slick surface, unable to stop the ball, Burnt Hills goes up, 2-0. Freshman Maria Malone took a shot late in the half and was helped off holder her right arm. Could be a broken clavical. Dr. Reda is working the video tonight and may have some good footage of the goals. We'll see once we get to the editing room. :)

BH girls up 1-0 vs. Cortland
Burnt Hills senior captain sent her first corner kick of the night out, away from the goal appearing to be a harmless shot.
Junior Julie Sampson was ready at the 30 and sent the ball deep, up and over the Cortland goalkeeper for a 1-0 lead 20 minutes into the first half of the Class A regional.

NYSPHSAA girls soccer regional underway
The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake girls soccer Class A regional against Cortland from Section III is finally underway at 6:50 p.m.
The game was delayed due to the two overtime Marcella (Section III) 1-0 win over Tamarac in the Class C regional before.
An apparent downpour came through prior to the first contest, bringing a chill as well as a slick surface to the Broadalbin-Perth FieldTurf surface.
Tonight's winner will host Section X's Massena later in the week.
