Chazy's Ava McAuliffe looks to dribble the ball past Seton defender Elizabeth Manion

The Chazy girls' soccer team earned a solid win over Seton to celebrate senior night, as the Eagles coasted to a 6-1 victory over the visiting Knights at George Brendler Field. It was a slow-developing game, with the first threatening moment for either team coming in the 18th minute, when Chazy senior Celine Juneau rang a shot off the crossbar. The deadlock was broken in the 15th minute, though, when Chazy's Olivia McLennan scored from the penalty spot. The Eagles were quick to capitalize on the momentum, with Juneau finding freshman Ava McAuliffe at the top of the box for a long-range shot to the back of the net just three minutes later. Rounding out a first half in which Chazy led shots 14-1, senior Catherine Langlois drove to the left corner flag and sent in a cross to freshman Samantha Gonyo for the 3-0 lead. In the 51st minute, Langlois crossed the ball in from the right wing. A Seton defenseman cut off the cross, but the ball fell to the feet of Juneau, who tapped it in for the fourth goal of the game. The same two players connected for the fifth goal just four minutes later, as Langlois whipped in a hard shot to force Seton goalkeeper Kennedy Spriggs into a diving save. Juneau picked up the rbound and put it under the crossbar for the tally. Spriggs was injured on the play, and Seton's Allisyn Johnston was tasked with putting on the gloves for the remaninder of the contest. Johnston allowed only one more goal in relief, a reversal of the previous two as Langlois scored on an assist from Juneau. The Knights managed some offensive pressure late in the game, and broke the shutout in the 68th minute as Madyson Whalen found Lily Von Bargen in the box. Von Bargen's shot deflected off the leg of a Chazy defenseman and spun toward the far post, out of the reach of Chazy goalkeeper Annika Lizardi. Chazy led the final shot count 29-6. Gallery
