Michelle Gi­ampor­tone scored three goals, lead­ing Rhinebeck High to a 4-1 non-league girls soc­cer vic­tory over Wal­lkill in the an­nual Andy Ben­nett Tour­na­ment.

Stephanie Cassens had a goal and one as­sist, Sam McCle­na­han dished out two as­sists and Libby Cal­la­han had one to help lead the (12-1) Hawks.

Ifeatu Eze­dum had an unas­sisted goal for Wal­lkill.

“It was a great game in the mid­field with Wal­lkill re­ally con­trol­ling the ball well,” Rhinebeck coach Matt Grande said.

“We pres­sured their shots of­ten and had great games by Libby Men­sch and Sarah To­bias on de­fense.

They are a great team who kept our keeper on her toes, but we found ways to put a few in when we got the chances.”

Hawk goal­keeper Dani Ami­don made seven saves, while Wal­lkill’s Daniella Palumbo had nine. Red Hook 2, Columbia 1

At East Green­bush, Is­abelle LaBar­bera scored off a Abby Wil­liams pass and as­sisted on AJ Fuch­sWhite’s tally as Red Hook held off a tough Class AA Columbia team.

Natalie Nista had put (7-6-1) Columbia ahead on Brid­get Austin’s as­sist, but the (12-0) Raiders ral­lied and held it at bay in the sec­ond half.

“Megan Jankowiak (five saves) had a very nice game in goal,” said Red Hook coach Ja­son Pavlich, “com­ing out to take op­por­tu­ni­ties away from Columbia be­fore they be­came se­ri­ous threats on goal.”

Sage had six saves for the Blue Devils.
