Rebounding from an early 1-0 deficit, Albion came roaring back to score three times in each half and earn a 6-1 victory over visiting Spencerport this evening in a Rochester District Soccer League girls U17 Division game.

Spencerport grabbed a lightning quick 1-0 lead in the first half minute but Albion came storming back with three goals by Emily Blanchard to rally into the lead for good by a 3-1 half-time margin. Mandy Covis had two assists and Mikayla Yaskulski one during that stretch.

Albion then put a lock on the victory behind two more goals by Blanchard and one by Nicole Eldred in the second half.

Albion, which next competes in the Brockport Tournament this weekend improves to 5-3-2.
