Maple Hill girls soccer falls in Class B final; Local roundup, Sat. Nov. 6
STILLWATER -- Meeghan Arno scored so many goals in her storied career, but the Maple Hill senior will likely remember the ones she couldn’t get to the back of the net on Saturday.
Arno had a number of chances, but couldn’t convert and the Wildcats fell for the first and last time of the 2010 season.
Chatham scored twice in a three-minute span to shock top-seeded Maple Hill 2-1 in the Section II Class B final at Stillwater High School.
The Panthers (16-2-0) only two losses of the season came at the hands of the Wildcats (19-1-0), New York State’s No. 12 ranked team.
On this day, the No. 7 seed in the bracket, extracted a little bit of revenge.
"We’ve been improving all along," said Chatham coach David Chrapowitzky. "Going into (this game), the girls felt confident."
The Panthers swarmed the section’s top goal scorer, marking her with soph¬omore Cheyenne Shufelt, who shadowed Arno’s every move.
