ELLSWORTH — The George Stevens Academy earned a crucial victory Thursday when it notched a 1-0 road win over Ellsworth at Del Luce Stadium.The home team came close to a goal early in the first half when freshman Addi Laslie’s shot sailed just to the right of the GSA net. After the visitors forced Ellsworth goalkeeper Kylie Robidoux into action with 17 minutes to go in the half, the home team came close to scoring twice when two shots from Sierra Andrews minutes before the break went just wide.Yet it was the visiting Eagles who would earn a vital win with a second-half strike. Luna Perry-St. Peter scored the game’s only goal for GSA, which earned its second victory of the season.Ellsworth, which had previously lost to Mount Desert Island 1-0 last Tuesday in Bar Harbor, lost by the same score for the third time in as many games Tuesday when it came up short at home against John Bapst (2-4).
