Rallying for a pair of second half goals, Medina nipped CSAT 2-1 this afternoon in a Niagara-Orleans League girls soccer game at Vets Park.

In other N-O action, Albion downed Newfane 3-1, Wilson bested Roy-Hart 5-1 and Akron blanked Barker 3-0.

Martha Gardner and Destiny Satkowski both had a goal and an assist to spark the rally which saw Medina erase a 1-0 halftime deficit.

Medina improves to 3-6-2 in N-O action while CSAT drops to 1-10.

Albion 3, Newfane 1
Mariah Elsenheimer scored two goals and Emily Blanchard had a goal and an assist to lead Albion (7-5) past Newfane (8-3) as the Purple Eagles avenged an earlier season 2-0 loss.

Elsenheimer gave Albion a quick 1-0 lead with a goal just five minutes in off an assist from Blanchard.

Newfane rallied into a tie at the 22 minute mark of the opening half on a tally by Kayla Daniels but Albion answered right back with a goal by Elsenheimer just three minutes later to regain the lead for good.

“That was a big goal. That took the tempo back for us,” said Albion Coach Bruce Blanchard.

The Purple Eagles added an insurance tally in the second half on a penalty kick goal by Blanchard.

“We played really well tonight,” said Blanchard. “We came to play and we controlled the game.”
