Taking over sole possession of second place, Akron scored a 4-1 win over host Albion this evening in a key Niagara-Orleans League girls soccer game.

The victory boosts Akron’s N-O record to 4-1 and keeps the Lady Tigers within a game of front-running Roy-Hart (4-0). The loss drops Albion two games off the pace at 2-2.

Akron jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead as Natalie Karmazyn scored in the first two minutes.

Albion battled back to knot the contest on a goal by Abby Scanlan just eight minutes later but the Lady Eagles could not find the back of the net again.

Akron regained the lead for good when Madison Henning scored what proved to be the game winning goal with 3:48 to go in the opening half.

The Lady Tigers then put a lock on the victory on second half goals by Kara Sequin at the 16:57 mark and by Olivia Kreher with 10:35 to go.

Albion next visits Roy-Hart in another key contest on Tuesday while Akron hosts Newfane.
