Mount Academy bows in re­gional semi­fi­nals

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - Free­man staff

Two-time de­fend­ing state cham­pion Fort Ann High earned a trip back to the state boys soccer tour­na­ment Wed­nes­day, hold­ing off Mount Academy 1-0 in a Class D re­gional fi­nal at Mid­dle­town’s Faller Field.

Tyler Mat­ti­son scored off a throw-in five min­utes into the se­cond half to put (20-0) Fort Ann ahead.

Mount Academy tried might­ily to tie the match. The Ea­gles had sev­eral shots on goal in the se­cond half, but were just off tar­get. The best op­por­tu­nity oc­curred mid­way through the half when Sean Kurtz at­tempted a vol­ley, but it was just off the mark.

Mount Academy, which won the Sec­tion 9 ti­tle the last three years, fin­ished the sea­son with an 8-6-1 record.
