Kingston blanks Saugerties in non-league match
Kingston High shut out a tough Saugerties team 2-0 in nonleague boys soccer Saturday.
Fullback Nick Jansen took Andy Lopez’s assist and sailed a long ball over Sawyer goalkeeper Seth Vanderbeck in the first half and Timmy Ruzzo converted a penalty kick in the second half to lead the (56-1) Tigers.
Kingston had been preparing for this rivalry game.
“Saugerties’ top scorer Sam Bagshaw was a threat repeatedly in the first half. Eli Conners, Nick Jansen and Luke Bernadine put in a lot of work this week practicing against Saugerties’s style of play,” Kingston coach James Franklin said. “Josh McNutt only had to make three saves with their steady denial of penetration.”
Vanderbeck had five saves for (9-5) Saugerties in the loss.
