BINGHAMTON — Arlington's Lindy Sefcik scored to tie the game for Hudson Valley, 1-1, at halftime before Leanne Benson's goal after the intermission earned the region a 2-1 triumph over Western.
"It's very big," Sefcik, who will be a senior for the Admirals next season said of the win which evened Hudson Valley's record to 1-1 at the Games. "We lost our first game, but now we have our momentum and we're really excited. We want to win gold, so that's just our goal."
Benson, a Cortlandt Manor resident seen here in a Journal News file photo, scored the game-winner in the 25th minute of the second half.
Hudson Valley is now 1-1 for the tournament, and will next play Central at 9 a.m. Saturday at Binghamton University.
“I think that we’re all really excited about it,” Benson, at Hendrick Hudson HS standout, said of the Central showdown. “If we can play the same, we can beat anyone.”
