Fairport vs OP

--  The Red Raiders traveled to Cicero-North Syracuse High School in Syracuse for the first of the three Upstate semi finals games today. It has been a long time for the Fayetteville-Manlius Hornets to get this far, having to battle the tough Class A schedule in Section Three.

Dan McAvoy scored the first goal of the game for Fairport. Working from the left wing, he sharply turned back and shot underhand to give the Red Raiders a 1-0 lead at 8:57. F-M took the ensuing face off but lost control of the ball to the Red Raiders who then took some time off the clock. Senior attackman Ryan Crater, working from the top center quickly passed the ball to Justin Kesselring for a Fairport goal at 7:59. On the third trip to their end, Nick Orsini ran a sweep left and scored an unassisted goal at 4:05. After missing a one-one-one, Section Three`s leading scorer, Jack Wilson chased down his own shot and quickly moved it to Dylan Taylor-Wolford, out front, who scored on a bounced shot past Fairport`s Joey Scalise. Fairport had the ball after the face off and after a couple of missed shots, the first quarter ended with the Red Raiders up 3-1.Fpt vs FM

Both goalies made saves before Wilson scored after breaking past two Fairport defensemen and taking the scored to 3-2 with 7:12 left in the half. Fairport took time off the clock each time they had offensive sets. The Hornets tied the game at 3-3 when Wilson scored on a feed from senior middie Luke Krizman who threw the ball from top center top to the right wing. Head Coach Mike Torrelli called a time out with just under a minute in the half. After three missed shots and with time running down, McAvoy ran hard from behind the goal and after jumping up in the air, scored with less than one second left. The Red Raider took the half-time lead 4-3.

Key in the first half was turnovers, where F-M had nine and Fairport had three. The extra ball time allowed the Red Raiders to take time in their offensive end and set up the looks they wanted. A significant number of shots hit the pipes at both end of the field.

Fairport won the first possession on a technical face off and after setting up, Shane Cronkwright drove hard from the left and bounced one past F-M goalie Brian Charlamb. After the next face off Orsini struck again with a shot from out front that bounced off Charlamb`s stick and went in, giving Fairport a 6-3 lead. Less than a minute later, Fairport scored again, as Kacin Welch put one in on a switchback. Thirty-four seconds later, F-M found the nets as Erik Badger had a change of direction dodge and took the score to 7-4. After a couple of saves by Scalise that bounced back out, Alex Lenze picked up a ground ball and quickly scored to take the game to 7-5. Badger scored again at 4:00 with an outside shot from top center, scoring the third in a row. F-M tied the game again at 7-7 with Wilson running it in from a clear. The Hornets had scored four in a row and owned the third quarter.Fairport vs F-M

--  Special Pittsford`s starting defense played three excellent quarters and one mediocre quarter, but that last quarter was enough for Fairport to come up with a win with 0:16 left in regulation. The Red Raiders scored six goals in the final quarter, including the last five in their 7-6 win over the Panthers. Pittsford`s Mike Perotto, Nick Panara, Greg Weyl and Colby Barker played a great game and had standout performances. Face off midfielder Ryan Fairbrother finished at 60% (9/16) and with a team leading five ground balls. In the cage, Kevin Maguire finished with 12 saves (63%) for the Panthers. Maguire along with Fairport goalie Joey Scalise were both named to the All Tournament Team for their play. Scalise finished at 60% with nine saves. Perotto and Panara were named to the All Tournament team in defense.Fairport vs Pittsford

Pittsford started off strong in the first half, scoring three goals and holding the Red Raiders scoreless. The Panthers scored two first quarter goals. Both were during man-up situations for the Panthers. The first came with 4:50 remaining with Owen Smith assisting Billy Cooper from behind the cage as the penalty was released. With 0:08, Jonathan Perotto scored with an outside shot and an assist from Brandon Barker. Pittsford added a single goal in the second quarter with Stephen Quinzi picking up a loose ball behind the cage and driving around the left side for the unassisted goal. Quinzi was named to the All Tournament team for Pittsford. The quarter concluded with a conduct foul followed by an unsportsmanlike conduct foul. Pittsford began the third quarter with the ball.

Three minutes into the quarter, Pittsford added their fourth goal with a high crease feed from James Felix to Barker. 28:55 into the contest the Red Raiders scored their first goal. Dan McAvoy scored unassisted with an outside shot to put Fairport on the board. McAvoy finished the game with 2g and was named to the All Tournament team for Fairport. His younger brother, freshman Kyle McAvoy, was also added to the team after a stellar performance in the semi and quarter final rounds. The teams continued to alternate scoring with Brandon Barker scoring for the Panthers and McAvoy scoring his second for the Red Raiders to open the fourth quarter.

Fairport vs PittsfordIn the fourth quarter, McAvoy scored only 0:34 into the quarter to give Fairport their second goal. Fifteen seconds later, Panara picked up the ball at the face-off and scored on a fast-break to give Pittsford their final goal with 11:11 remaining in regulation. Fairport scored the last five goals with goals from Kesselring (2), Brent Mazurkiewicz, Nick Orsini and the game winning goal from Ryan Bowen with 0:16 remaining on the clock.

Pittsford`s defense continued to play well, not stellar, in the fourth quarter; however it was the Red Raider offense that stepped up. This included midfielder Shane Cronkwright who finished at 40% for the game, but who won five straight face-offs in the fourth quarter to continue to give Fairport the possessions. With about three minutes remaining the Panthers had the ball in their offensive end, but could not hold on to the ball and Fairport scored three goals in the last three minutes to take the lead.

In addition to those listed above, the following players made the All Tournament team: Midfielder Brandon Barker (Pittsford), LSM Allen Thibodeau (Fairport), Defenseman Ryan Nugent (Thomas) and Justin Kesselring (Fairport). Kesselring was named the MVP. At the conclusion of the game the Nick Panara from Pittsford was announced as the Defensive Player of the year.

NYS MapCollege Decisions

- Many lacrosse players have made the decision to combine their love of the game with post high school education and will be moving on to play at the college level. Some made verbal commitments long ago and some waited until the spring or summer to make their decision. Although some may sign contracts to play, many more simply enroll as students and play without scholarships.

Many of the players have made their decisions public and they have been published on SportsFive.NET. As the announcements move off this front page they are listed on the "Commitments Page" which are available from a button on the "Players Main Page".
