A full regulation game and two overtimes were insufficient to separate the Plattsburgh Hornets and Beekmantown Eagles in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference boys soccer on Halloween. A game that saw both teams generate many scoring opportunities ended in a 1-1 draw in Beekmantown. The action began quickly, as Beekmantown's Zachary Dubrey scored just 20 seconds after kickoff off an assist from Dalton Kane. The Hornets responded quickly, tying the score just 4 minutes later with a free kick by senior Ryan Kavanaugh. PHS nearly took the lead a minute later, as junior Jack Ferris saw his close-range shot stopped by the Eagles' starting goalkeeper, Rocco Golden. The Hornets enjoyed most of the possession in the first half, helped in part by the fact that they were attacking with the wind at their backs, but the Eagles had their fair share of opportunities on the counterattack. In the 29th minute, a PHS corner was cleared by the Beekmantown defense and the ball fell to Dubrey near midfield. Dubrey beat two defenders en route to the goal, forcing a diving save out of goalkeeper Jackson Ryan. Just two minutes later, a long ball up the field by the Eagles turned into another chance, as Dubrey used his speed to win the race to the ball and get a shot off. In the second half, the Eagles switched to Victor Mason in net, who was up to the challenge. The remainder of the game saw both team exchange goal scoring chances several times, but neither team could find the back of the net. In the end, the teams settled for a tie in a tense, physical affair. Gallery

Chazy's Callie Harvey (11) and Plattsburgh's (17) battle for the loose ball around the sideline in the even-steven game. It would be a matchup of a couple of the top teams in Girls Soccer inside the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference at Plattsburgh as the Plattsburgh Hornets would host the Chazy Eagles in section vii action. The game would go back and forth throughout the first half and the teams would stay even as there was no scoring in the half. When the teams came back for the second half the game would still stay as tight as ever. The Hornets would finally get the opening goal of the game about halfway through the second half from Tesea as the Hornets take a 1-0 lead. It would take the Eagles a while but they would eventually get the equalizer with like ten minutes left in the game from Olivia Mclennan to tie the game at 1. The game would stay that way through the rest of regulation and head to the overtime. In the overtime period, the Hornets would get the game-winner from number 2 to secure the Hornets victory over the Eagles. Gallery
