Scholastic men's soccer falls in PKs

BINGHAMTON — It took two rounds and a dozen penalty kicks but Adirondack defeated Hudson Valley 2-1 in PKs following a 1-1 tie at the end of regulation.

In the 24th minute of his team's opening-round game, Arlington High School's Eric Fortier scored off his own rebound to give Hudson Valley a 1-0 lead against Adirondack.

"It was nice," Fortier said. "I shot the ball, like, four times and luckily, one time it got in."

Officials credited fellow Admiral Cody Farrier (seen here against John Jay last October) with the assist.

Fortier, who will be a senior for Arlington next season, emerged from a scrum in front of the net to break the scoreless deadlock following a restart.

But 14 minutes after the break, Adirondack knotted the game to force the extra drama.
