Rebounding from an early two goal deficit, Albion’s U17 girls team rallied to defeat visiting Greece United 3-2 this evening in a Rochester District Soccer League game.

Albion, which played with just one sub, first cut the deficit to 2-1 by half-time on a goal by Ally Page.

Albion then put together a strong second half stretch run surge to claim the win on a pair of late goals by Mikayla Yaskulski.

Yaskulski pulled Albion even at 2-2 when she scored with 10 minutes remaining. She then netted the game winner with less than three minutes to play.

Ellen Narburgh made several big stops in goal for Albion whose defense was anchored by Vivian Rivers and Natalie DiCureia.

“Everyone just played a great game,” said Albion Coach Paul Zeppetella. “We only had the one sub so everyone really came up big for us.

Improving to 2-0, Albion next faces Genesee Valley at York on Monday.
