This past weekend, the Freeze continued their winning streak. Playing on the SLU campus on Friday, they scored early against LCU of Lowville (4-4-0). Olivia Mace (Ohio) scored from a pass from Anourine Pullano (Parishville) but the game was called midway through the first half because of the fastly-approaching severe weather.

Leading the way offensively were; Pullano, who scored twice, and Rylee Dennis (Maitland, Onatrio), who converted on one of her six shots on goal. Other goals were netted by Mace, Liz Peo (Ogdensburg) and Natalie McCormick (Ogdensburg).

Shots on goals were distributed among the following FC Freeze players: Katharine Cowen (Potsdam), Shannon Gallagher (Gouverneur), Brooke Hayes (Parishville), Delaney Hayes (Canton) and Sophia Janoyan (Potsdam).
In game two, the locals outscored NOSC 6-1. After being the keeper in the first game, Jones moved to striker and provided a quick spark, tallying an unassisted goal in the first 50 seconds of play. Mace scored two unassisted goals in the contest. Delaney Hayes scored from a direct kick by blasting the ball in the top left side of the net. Dennis and Pullano each scored once. McCormick played very solid in the goal, finishing with four saves while her strong punts kept the NOSC defense on their toes. Strong defense in both games was provided by Brooke Hayes, Erica Sloan (Parishville) and Delaney Hayes.
