Morning Round-up: Rye Neck revs up

The Rye Neck boys’ soccer team rebounded from a tough overtime loss to Keio with a 1-0 victory over Dobbs Ferry at home. Dalton Mendez stopped five shots for the shutout, and Philippe Adam’s goal midway through the second half was enough for the win. Adam Gourchane got the assist on the free kick.

In the pool at White Plains, the Garnets improved to 3-0 with a 102-75 victory over John Jay-Cross River.

Rye’s volleyball team added another win by making short work of visiting Horace Greeley in a 3-0 (25-9, 25-12, 25-14) sweep. Rebecca Choron led with five kills and four aces, and teammate Patricia Sganga crushed the competition with seven aces.

At St. Luke’s, Holy Child’s field hockey team won their third straight game with a 1-0 victory. Catherine Ann Gray’s first half goal proved to be the difference (Jillian Murphy assisted), and Carrigan Henderson made three saves for the shutout.

Rye Neck’s volleyball team moved back to .500 with a 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 25-12) sweep over visiting Valhalla. Jackie Galeano wreaked havoc with eight aces and 19 assists, and Julia Bilotta contributed with seven kills and three aces.

Although Rye Neck’s tennis team dropped a 6-1 decision to Briarcliff on the road, first singles player Midori Takasaki had a comeback victory, 1-6, 6-3, 6-1, to remain undefeated. The team was missing Caroline Lambillotte at second singles, forcing the rest of the team to move up a spot.

The Panthers’ girls’ soccer team picked up a road victory however, besting Dobbs Ferry 2-1. Samantha Amatuzzo and Caitlin Morelli each scored a goal, and Jessica Wright had 13 saves. Wright was lined up for the shutout until the Eagles scored a goal with two minutes left.
