Albion teams earned a split Monday evening in Rochester Dictrict Soccer League action as the U17 team defeated host Greece United 3-1 and the U15 squad lost 8-0 to visiting Genesee Valley.

The U17 team grabbed a 1-0 first half lead on a goal by Katie Mann on a direct kick.

A penalty kick goal by Brylie Hapeman upped the lead to 2-0 in the second half.

Greece cut the deficit to 2-1 but Albion put a lock on the victory as Mikayla Yaskulski scored off an assist from Hapeman.

Improving to 6-2, Albion next visits Bergen on Wednesday.
