Scholastic men play golden soccer

BINGHAMTON — John Jay High School's Jake Keegan, Arlington's Cody Farrier and Spackenkill's Josh Maley each helped Hudson Valley win the gold medal by scoring goals in the second half of the championship contest, in which Hudson beat Long Island, 4-2.After leading Spackenkill to the state Class B crown last fall as a senior, Maley said Hudson Valley's teamwork — not to mention its ability to rally late — led to Sunday's win.

“We came back every game,” the team's captain said, “but on top of everything, this team is made up of guys from seven different high schools around the Hudson Valley. It’s just a bunch of amazing guys; we all clicked. You’ve got state championships, all kinds of characters on this team.

“We really came together, a lot of team chemistry, and that’s really what it’s all about.”
