POTSDAM, N.Y. (WWNY) - Canton was at Potsdam in girls' Northern Athletic Conference soccer Tuesday.

- At the other end, Keely Towne slides the ball to Kennedy Emerson who -- from the end-line -- lasers a perfect shot just inside the opposite post, tying the game 1-1.

- In the second half, Etta Coburn takes the corner kick. In a wild scramble, Potsdam keeper Taylor Benda makes two desperate saves, but Reed lifts a shot over the fallen goalie for what would prove to be the game-winning score.
