LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. — The Mt. Markham Mustangs outshot Little Falls at Veterans Memorial Park Tuesday but settled for a scoreless overtime tie with the Mounties in its rematch with the Center State Conference’s East Division leaders.
The Mustangs had a 13-5 edge in shots — 6-2 before halftime, 7-3 after — but came up empty on the scoreboard as Mountie Kristi Torres made 12 saves. Torres had 14 saves in Little Falls’ 2-0 win in West Winfield Sept. 18.
“Kristi did a nice job for us in the cage tonight,” Little Falls coach Monica Tooley said. “She played smart — staying up, coming out and being patient as needed.”
The Mustangs (4-5-4) had seven corners to Little Falls’ six, the last following a timeout with 1:13 left to play in the 10-minute extra period.
The Mounties (6-4-1) unveiled a new alignment on the field with Sierra McCarthy shifting from a forward position to a back. Tooley was pleased with the results.
“I felt like every individual played well tonight,” she said. “We just didn’t have the push in the circle. ... Sierra McCarthy played well for us tonight in our defensive half; she transitioned the ball well. Teddi Fallis had nice breakaways and offensive push. Sara Kotary, Laura Wind and Sydney McCarthy really held the middle of the field and worked well together between the 25s.”
Amanda Otis, Mt. Markham’s goalie, handles the Mounties’ five shots by making four saves, including just one in the first half.
Little Falls plays at Clinton Thursday while Mt. Markham is home for a game against Central Valley Academy.
