Cassie Sterbens was the difference maker in Rye Neck’s 1-0 win at Port Chester.
The center midfielder scored in the 55th minute, finishing a rebound off of a Lauren Vallarelli shot.
The win was the Panthers’ first league victory of the season.
Rye Neck goalie Sabrina Albanese was solid in net, making 18 saves to secure the shutout. Albanese made a particularly critical save on a breakaway attempt in the waning minutes of the game.
