Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Report, I’m Keith Harrington.

Tanagers Edge Fort Ann on the Pitch

You would have to dig deep into the archives of the Hartford scorebook to find the last time the boy’s soccer team defeated Lake George and Fort Ann in the same week. Heck, in the same season. Coming off a 3-2 win over the Lake George earlier in the week the Tanagers edged Fort Ann 2-1 on Friday in Adirondack League play.

Hartford jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Nate Fiske and Aiden Swezey.

Tyler Winchell scored on an assist from Garrett Brown in the second half to bring the Cardinals 2-1, but the Tanagers held on for the win.

John Gauthier contributed an assist for Hartford.

Austin Wells recorded 11 saves in goal for the Tanagers.

Hunter Wade finished with 12 stops in goal for the Cardinals.

Hartford improved to 2-2, 2-3. Fort Ann drops to 1-2, 1-3.

Granville Field Hockey Blanks Greenwich

Granville and Greenwich have had some classic battles in field hockey over the years. Friday the Golden Horde and Witches had another tight battle. When the final horn sounded Granville came away with a 2-0 victory in an Adirondack-Wasaren League contest.

Haylie Barber hit the back of the cage twice to lead the Golden Horde.

Melissa Beaver added an assist for Granville.

Megan Decker had the shutout in goal with two saves. Decker has not given up a goal so far this season.

Granville held a 23-3 advantage in penalty corners.

Olivia Warner finished with nine saves for the Witches.

“It was tough getting back into game mode after not having a game since last Saturday,” Golden Horde coach Katie Barber said. “But every player gave 100%. This is a fun group to watch.”

Granville is now 3-0, 4-0. The Golden Horde have outscored their opponents 20-0 in the early season.
