WATERVILLE, N.Y. — The Little Falls Mounties shut Utica’s Notre Dame Jugglers out Wednesday and earned a return to the Brothertown Optimist Tournament’s championship match with the 2-0 victory.
The Mounties will be back in Waterville Saturday to play in the 5:30 p.m. title match against the host school which defeated Brookfield 3-2 in Wednesday’s nightcap. Waterville was a 2-1 winner against Little Falls in last year’s final.
The Mounties, come-from-behind winners in overtime against Notre Dame last fall, never let the Jugglers put a goal on the scoreboard Wednesday. Katelyn Parese scored off a cross from Maria Morotti in the first half and Sarah Bruins added a goal assisted by Nicole Foti and Casey Baumeister in the second.
Cheyenne Rivenburg earned the shutout with eight saves in the goal for Little Falls.
