Ellsworth boys’ soccer team defeats GSA again

first_imgBLUE HILL — The Ellsworth boys’ soccer team knows how hard it can be to break down George Stevens Academy’s defense. On Monday, the one time it did proved to be enough.A first-half goal from Judd Kinney proved to be the difference Monday night as Ellsworth held on to defeat GSA 1-0. It was the team’s second one-goal victory of the season against GSA after winning the first matchup 3-2 in overtime three weeks ago.Ellsworth goalkeeper Peyton Cole was quickly called into action in the first half, making two saves in the first 15 minutes to keep GSA off the scoreboard. GSA had more opportunities throughout much of the first half but found itself behind when Kinney scored against the run of play following a set piece.The goal came when Colby Clarke, playing with pain in his right foot, laid the ball off to teammate Trent Mahon on a free kick. Mahon dribbled to the left of the GSA defense and passed to Kinney, who scored from close range to give Ellsworth (7-2-1) the lead with 13:10 left in the first half.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“I sort of let the players decide themselves who was going to take that, and the decision they made ended up working pretty well,” Ellsworth coach Paul Lock said. “With Colby’s foot, I kind of knew they were going to try something like that because he probably wouldn’t be shooting on goal.”Ellsworth showed more promise offensively during the second half, but GSA (5-5) continued to get chances on goal. Just as he did in the first half, Cole came up with key stops and even made a diving save on a shot that seemed destined to find the bottom left corner with just over 17 minutes to play.“Payton was an inspiration to us tonight,” Lock said. “Whether it was his good positioning or making great saves, he really did it all for us when it mattered.”Ellsworth’s next game will be at home against the Hermon Hawks (5-4-1) at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5. GSA’s next game will be at home against the Bucksport Golden Bucks (0-9) at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6.
