A DAY LATER, UNBEATEN ARLINGTON MOVES INTO FINALS

Admiral Girls Will Host Rival John Jay For Dutchess County Regional Championship

FREEDOM PLAINS – Technically, you could say the Arlington High School girls soccer team had to wait a day to play its Dutchess County Regional Championship tournament semifinal after the school discovered two positive COVID-19 tests on Thursday.

Coach Kelley Hand prefers to look at it in a broader sense, and she had no concerns.

“It was our first game in 17 days so the girls were ready to play,” Hand said after the top-seeded Admirals whipped Beacon, 9-0, to advance to Saturday morning’s championship game against archrival John Jay. Kickoff at Arlington is 10 a.m.

“It is unfortunate that we have to turn around and play a very tough game early (Saturday) morning, especially since we haven’t played in so long so trying to stay in game shape has been a struggle this season,” Hand said. “We practiced really hard all week so we are hoping to come out and play tough.”

Hand said the Admirals are also down one player forced to quarantine because of the case in school.

Arlington advanced as Kyra Kenyon scored three goals. Casey Stowell had a pair of goals and an assist, sister Megan Stowell had a goal and two assists, and Ava Allen, Abbie Deserre and Marissa Foster all scored.
