ELLENVILLE – In a weird game that started late and ended early, Ellenville High School gave Rhinebeck boys soccer its toughest test of the year in a 2-2 Mid-Hudson Athletic League tie.

It was the first blemish on the year for Rhinebeck, which is now 9-0-1 overall.

Ellenville is 7-1-1 overall.

The game started 45 minutes late when Rhinebeck had some transportation issues getting to Ellenville; as a result, it ended early due to darkness in the 88th minute, or early in the first overtime period.

The game was tied at 1-1 late in the first half when Alex Pauley played a delicate chip over the outside back and Branden Guba was able to run onto it and hit it to the far post in stride. The ball hit off the post and ended up in the goal for the Blue Devils to go up 2-1 into halftime.

Rhinebeck scored early in the second half when Liam

Curthoys slid a square ball to Ben Fajardo and he hit a shot from outside the 18 that Ellenville keeper Jeremiah Irwin misplayed, as it bounced off him and into the goal.

Jeremiah was playing his first varsity game in goal due to some late line-up changes that had to be made. He was

outstanding for us the entire game,” Ellenville coach Maxwell Mead said.

The Hawks had a 17-2 advantage in shots on goal and 9-0 in corner kicks, but could not get another one home.
