Cummings’ return from injury sparks Pine Plains girls to first victory

AMENIA – Back from an injury that sidelined her the past two-plus games, Christina Cummings gave the Stissing Mountain High School (Pine Plains) girls soccer team the boost it needed.

Cummings scored both Bomber goals, including one with less than two minutes to play, to give Pine Plains a 2-1 Mid-Hudson Athletic League victory over Webutuck on Monday.

It was the first victory of the year for the Bombers.

“We got off to a tough start,” Pine Plains coach Sar Taveniere said of her team’s 1-3 record, “but you can see the signs of the girls starting to put it together. Christina was injured in our first game and hadn’t played since, and it was great to have her back. She’s a senior and you can see what she can do.”

Chloe Panzer had the Warriors’ lone goal but she almost tied it at the bitter end after Webutuck mad ea great rush down the field after Cummings scored with less than two minutes to play.

“We have a very young team this year but we’re coming along,” Webutuck coach Mark Moren said.

Warriors goalie Allie Steen turned back 15 shots to keep Webutuck in the match.
