By Keith Harrington

A three-goal deficit hampered Hartford’s boys soccer team a chance to hand rival Fort Ann its first league loss of the season. The Tanagers’ late rally last Monday, Sept. 20, came up just a little short as they fell to the Cardinals 3-2 in an Adirondack League contest

Fort Ann led 3-0 in the second half before the Tanagers scored twice to narrow the gap.

Fort Ann took a 1-0 lead into the halftime break after a shot was knocked in by a Hartford player, resulting in an own goal.

Ryan Blondin made it 2-0 Cardinals with 37:08 to play. Tyler Winchell scored just under six minutes later to extend the lead to 3-0 and Fort Ann looked to be in complete control.

Two late Hartford goals made it interesting. Logan Reynolds scored with 4:11 to go off an assist from Drake Stewart. Just 20 seconds later Cody Baker hit the back of the net to cut the deficit to 3-2.

Dylan Brown stopped five shots for Fort Ann. Austin Wells recorded five saves for Hartford.

Fort Ann is 4-0. Hartford is 1-3.

Hartford got back on the winning side of things rolling over Corinth 6-1 Wednesday, Sept. 22, in league play.

Likely riding the momentum of its rally against Fort Ann, Hartford raced out to a 4-0 lead at halftime and were never challenged.

Stewart and James Lavin scored second half goals for Hartford. Reynolds assisted on Stewart’s goal.

M.J. Sprague scored for Corinth.
