Clinton handed United its only other loss this season, 3-2, on Jan. 2 in Glens Falls on a goal with 4:30 remaining. In both cases, Adirondack United scored first. On Saturday, South Glens Falls’ sophomore Lillian Willis scored an early first-period power-play goal. But Clinton answered 92 seconds later. United (19-2-2) peppered Clinton’s goalie Casey Clausen with 26 shots on goal, but only the one in the first five minutes made it through.
