2015 Face Off

The 2015 season is long-gone and summer recruiting tournaments have been concluded. Some players have made their commitments and more will make decisions as we progress toward the end of this season.

During the summer, the National Federation Rules Committee held their annual meetings and came up with some new rule changes for the 2016 season. The New York State Lacrosse Committees have ratified the changes and have already published a number of interpretations. Rule changes for the 2016 season include new face off procedures and changes to stick specifications. "Points of emphasis" are (1) contact to the head or neck and blind side hits, (2) helmet fitting and NOCSE standards, (3) halftime warm up (recommended for the last three minutes of the break) and (4) insuring that helmets and other equipment be worn during warm up periods.

Early in 2016 the National Federation of State High School Associations released the results of their annual survey on high school athletic participation and, once again, lacrosse continued to grow in 2015. Participation grew 1.6% in the year (and 159% over the last six years) and the number of teams grew 5.6% with over 108,000 boys playing on over 2,600 teams in 2015.

Interestingly, The NCAA published a report based on 2013-2014 study that showed that 12% of high school players go on to play in college (3% in Division I, 2% in Division II and 7% in Division III). Section Five numbers are quite a bit higher as we see over 24% of our players moving on to the college programs. There are currently 356 alumni playing in college.

For viewer looking ahead, the post season tournament schedules and other information can be found on the Tournament Page and for those still living the glory days of last season, a great deal of information can be found in the 2015 wrap up story.

Under the title of "It's About Time", SportsFive Media, the owner of this site has just opened a web site for the Girls of Section Five. Check out GLaxFive.NET to watch the development of a presence for Girls Lacrosse of Section Five.

Four Class Cut Off Numbers Announced.

- The cutoff number have now been set for the four class system for boys` lacrosse starting in the 2017 season.NYS

Last spring it was announced that the NYSPHSAA would be moving lacrosse from three classes to four. There was a great deal of discussion on how the classes would be split. The normal starting point is "equal distribution", that is, twenty-five percent of the teams in each class. Given a large difference in the size of schools from one section to another, the "25%" plan had too many classes with too many or too little. At least four comprise solutions were presented but voting among the Sections and the other NYSPHSAA Committees.

In the end, a final comprise resulted in the following cutoff which will be in effect for the next two years:

  • Class A schools - 1050 students and more
  • Class B schools - 750-1049
  • Class C schools - 425-749
  • Class D schools - 424 and less

In Section Five, Pittsford has already announced their intention to move from Class B to Class A and so:

In Class A: Fairport, R-H, Penfield, Arc/Oly, Hilton and Pittsford (6 teams)

In Class B: G-C, Victor, Schroeder, Thomas, C-C, McQuaid, Ath/Ody, Spencerport, Irondequoit, Canandaigua, Brighton, and Brockport (13 teams).

In Class C: Eastridge, HF-L, Wayne, Geneva, Newark, UPrep, Pal-Mac and Aquinas (8 teams).

In Class D: Penn Yan, Waterloo, Livonia, B-H, Midlakes, Bath, Mynderse, Marcus Whitman, Gananda and Avon (10 teams).

There may still be adjustments to the numbers in each as other teams could decide to move up in class. Planning for the new Section Five Tournaments will begin this fall.

     More Detail

 

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: This was one of those games where the winners just were better. Cold Spring Harbor played excellent lacrosse on both send of the field. The Seahawks were aggressive on defense, often doubling the ball and recording numerous takes.

Senior goalie Gage Ponsetti played a good game in the goal, despite the score, making some on-on-one saves and, at one point, leaving the crease to intercept a long pass from transition. Sean Emerson ended his career with 2g-1a as did Tate Stewart.

For The Seahawks, this was their second Championship in a row and third in their history. In addition, they helped to continue the winning streak for Section VIII teams. There has been a Section VIII Champion every year for the last eight years.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: As they have done several times in the last few weeks, The Victor Blue Devils came from behind to win their second straight New York State Championship, with a 7-5 win over Ward Melville (Section 11) at Middletown High School this afternoon.

Ward Melville started off the scoring with the only Trophy two goals in the first quarter with unassisted drives to the goal from freshman Dylan Pallonetti and junior Dominic Pryor. With less than three minutes left in the half, Connor Grippe made it 3-0 with a long hard bouncing shot from the far front. Victor finished out the half with their first goal of the game. Senior attackman Max Lambert scored on a tight drive from behind the cage and an underhand shot. The halftime score with 3-1.

There must have been some magic during the halftime break, because the Blue Devils came into the third quarter with three goals in less than three minutes, giving Victor a 4-3 lead with eight minutes left. Dan Barrow started things off when Mike DeMarco drove from behind and dished the ball to Barrow cutting to the crease. Jamie Trimboli found Ryan Maloney on an inside feed. It was a dramatic goal as Maloney had his back to the goalie and through the ball over his shoulder into the top right corner. DeMarco, behind the cage through the ball to sophomore Andrew Russell who had to leap with his stick extended above his head. He then took the one-handed catch directly into an underhand shot giving the Blue Devils their first lead of the game. The third quarter ended with a 4-4 tie after the Patriots scored at the five-minute mark when Grippe scored his second goal on a sweep.

Twelve minutes were left in the 2016 high school lacrosse season and the teams were tied. Ward Melville made their commitment known when they scored in the first minute of the quarter, taking the lead at 5-4. After winning a technical face off, Eddie Munoz received a great pass from Dominic Pryor and put a hard sidearm shot past sophomore Goalie Chayse Ierlan (who finished the game with 4 saves). Victor Wins

The Patriots held on to that lead for over six minutes as the Ward Melville defensive unit pulled tight toward the goal, fending off drives by the many Blue Devil offensive players who like to drive outside to inside. DJ Kellerman had a number of dramatic saves during the game and defensemen John Day and Sean Thornton led the Patriot defensive play and coordinated textbook slides for the Patriots. Feeds to the inside were tough to make and the aggressive and quick stick checks Day and Thornton resulted in numerous caused turnovers.

One of notable talents of the 2016 Blue Devil team has been confidence and although time was running quickly down, they continued to show poise as they continued to play "Victor Lacrosse". Senior midfielder Jamie Trimboli turned the tide at 5:01 with what can only be described as a "force of will" goal as he forced his way toward the left side and a full speed, found a tight corner for the tying goal. With face off specialist TD Ierlan winning face-offs (he finished with 13 of 16), the Blue Devils continued to be very patient in offense, test each of the Patriot defensemen while moving the ball crisply and quickly. Eventually, after a warning to keep it in, DeMarco found Dan Barrow on an inside feed for the go-ahead goal. Ierlan won another face off and the offense worked to take time off the clock. With time running down, the Patriots pulled the goalie and worked to double the ball. With 1:47 left on the clock, Max Lambert broke through a double and scored on an open goal. After another face-off win the Blue Devils played keep away to seal the victory.

It was an exciting finish to another undefeated season and a winning streak of 44 games. Sophomore defenseman Tanner Hay was awarded the defensive MVP plaque. Mike DeMarco was named the offensive MVP and T.D. Ierlan was the game MVP.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: After a broken Cazenovia clear, Austin Fingar moved the ball up field in transition and at the left crease found senior attackman Craig Gerhardt who then sent the ball cross-crease to senior Tate Stewart who, in overtime, scored his first of the game and gave the Mustangs a trip to the Championships in Middletown.

It was most certainly a game of two halves, as the Mustangs dominated in the first half, leading by as much as six goals and entering the halftime break up 8-3. Cazenovia, who had won the last three years in the same semifinal game against the Mustangs would not giving up and returned with five out of six goals in the third quarter and then two more at the start of the fourth quarter to take a 10-9 lead with just over seven minutes left in the game. With just over two minutes left in regulation Penn Yan got the ball in their offensive end and Coach Brian Hobart called a time out. Shortly thereafter Sean Emerson scored on a nice pass from Austin Fingar to tie the game at 10-10. On the ensuing face off the Lakers got possession and Coach Jim Longo called a time out. The Lakers started with the ball, but the Mustangs took it away and then down field hitting a pipe, just as time ran out.

Exciting performances came from a number of Mustangs including Austin Fingar (3g-2a) who, in the first half of the game set the tone winning many face offs. Craig Gerhardt (3g-2a) and Sean Emerson gave Penn Yan multiple dimensions and when one player was covered hard by the very competent Red Ram defense another took up the banner. Gage Ponsetti had a number of key one-on-one saves and ended the day with twelve saves (55%).

The Mustangs will play Cold Spring Harbor on Saturday at Middletown High School at 1:30 pm. The Seahawks defeated Pleasantville 12-10 and are currently 17-1.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: There is not much to say about the Victor Blue Devil win tonight as they cruised past Corning in the semifinal Class A game at Bragman Stadium (CN-S High School). Victor face off specialist won his first eleven face offs in the first half (and finished with 17 of 18) to give the Blue Devils almost exclusive ball time. With a very patient opening offense the players moved the ball from every direction, while scoring four unanswered goals in the first quarter and ending the half up 9-1.Victor

Coach Jim Andre started making substitutions in the second half and after the game went into running time, many more players got field experience. Starting goalie, Chayse Ierlan, who made some exciting one-on-one stops recorded nine saves while allowing only one goal in his three quarter performance.

Next up for the Blue Devils is another shot at a New York State Championship. Coach Andre is fond of saying that the team is not "defending their title" from last year because that was in Class B and this year they are playing in Class A. In any event, Victor has a record of 21-0 this season and are on a 43 game winning streak with their last loss in 2014 (against Jamesville-Dewitt in the NYS semifinal game). On Saturday they will be playing Ward Melville who defeated Lakeland/Panas 16-6 tonight. The Patriots are currently 18-6. Game time in Middletown is 4:00 pm.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: The Red Rams started off with the first three goals against Webster Thomas, but the Titans came back with the next three goals to tie the game early in the second quarter. Travis Ford (4-2) scored with 3:55 left in the half to give Thomas their first lead of the game (5-4). The Red Rams used the last three minutes of the half to scored two goals and go to the break, up 6-5.

Thomas winnersJ-D scored the first two goals in the third, extending their lead to three and then Travis Ford scored the only Thomas goal of the quarter before J-D came back with three more including three from Grayson Burns who ended the game with five. Although the Red Rams scored the first goal of the last quarter, Thomas returned with three in a row taking the score to 9-12. Multiple penalties gave much of the end of the game ball time to the Red Rams who scored one more in man up.

The Ford brothers were noteworthy in the game with senior Travis recording 4g-2a and his sophomore brother Trevor adding g3-1a. Senior attackman Pierce Currie had 2g. Sophomore goalie Matt Yonko, who was moved up from the JV earlier in the season when his brother, Ben was injured has a stellar season with the Varsity and made some superb saves in the biggest game of his life thus far. Recording nine saves against a very competent Jamesville-DeWitt offense.

Jamesville-DeWitt will appear for the fifth time in six years to the Championship game in Middletown at 11:00 am on Saturday.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: The Penn Yan Mustangs scored the first goal and never lost the lead as they defeated the Akron Tigers 17-6 in the Western Regionals in Buffalo. Penn Yan led 4-1 after the first quarter and then scored seven more to enter the half-time break up 11-3. Slowing the pace a bit in the third they led 14-5 before finishing the game at 17-6.

Austin Fingar (4g-8a) and Sean Emerson (6g-2a) combined for most of the Mustang offense although eight players made the offensive book for Penn Yan. Although the offense received top billing the Penn Yan defense was equally productive. Key defensive assignments by senior defenseman Tanner Irwin and sophomore defenseman Coty Bailey were of particular note as they stifled offensive attacks, picked up key ground balls and helped move the ball down field during clears. After a slow start, in fact, the Mustangs were relentless on loose ground balls, often chasing them down from long distances.

In the cage, senior Gage Ponsetti made some dramatic saves and ended the game with 12s/6ga.

The Mustangs move on to the semifinal round in Syracuse at Cicero-North Syracuse High School. They will be playing Cazenovia on Wednesday at 5:30. It will be the fourth meeting of the two teams in the semifinals and Cazenovia has won close games in each of the previous three meetings.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: It was the second meeting of the Victor Blue Devils and the Orchard Park Quakers this year and the result was the same as the Blue Devils defeated the powerful Section VI Class A Quakers 17-7 in the Western Regionals in Buffalo today. The first game (on April 30th) saw Victor winning 19-5.

Not unlike their game with Pittsford in the Section Five Championships, Victor started out slowly. The Quakers outscored them 2-1 in the first quarter but the Blue Devils woke up in the second, scoring six unanswered goals and ending the half up 8-2. Victor added three more in the third and then six more unanswered goals in the last quarter before ending up with the 17-7 win.

Key to the win was the expected, but sterling effort of senior face off specialist T.D. Ierlan who won 19 of 21 face offs for Victor. The consistent ball time on their offensive end of the field limited shots by Orchard Park, but sophomore goalie, Chayse Ierlan made a number of classy saves and ended his day with 9s/5ga.

Victor, who have been undefeated since 2014, will move on to the NYS semifinal round in Syracuse (Cicero-North Syracuse High School) and will play Corning (Section IV) who defeated Jamesville-DeWitt (Section III) in overtime toady. The game will be played on Wednesday at 8:00 pm.

Aquinas vs Penn Yan

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: Top seeded Penn Yan scored nearly all their goals in a set of two runs to defeat third seeded Aquinas 9-7. The Little Irish played the first half extremely well and led 3-0 and 4-1 before the Mustangs began to get their feet under them. Aquinas controlled the first half and looked like they would win but the Mustangs came back in the second to pull within one (4-3) going into the half. In the third quarter Penn Yan proved why they have won 21 Section Five Titles. This year was their sixth in a row and 18th in the last 19 years. Sophomore Ben Emerson played an impressive game and finished with 3g-2a. All five of his points came in the second half and were scored as a series of five unanswered goals that really put the Mustangs in control of the game. His goals were all back to back to tie the game at 5-5 and increase the lead to 7-5. His two assists lifted them to 9-5 before Aquinas scored the final two goals.Penn Yan vs Aquinas

Aquinas scored the only three goals of the first quarter. Nicholas Morreale opened up the scoring with a wraparound drive from behind the cage. Two minutes later Evan Kelly assisted Cameron Cecere from behind the cage. The final goal of the quarter was an inside feed from Nick Tschetter to Kelly. The Little Irish led 3-0. The Mustangs scored the first goal of the second quarter on a man-up goal from Conner Fingar to Sean Emerson. Aquinas scored again with an outside shot from Tschetter. Penn Yan added another man-up goal with an outside shot from Craig Gerhardt before scoring their first even goal at 2:49 remaining. Austin Fingar scored with a behind the back shot on a cut across the crease line. Senior goalie, Gage Ponsetti finished with 9 saves (56%); however, he did not record his first save until 3:09 remaining in the second quarter.Penn Yan vs Aquinas

Penn Yan scored their third straight goal to tie the game at 4-4 with their third man-up goal. Connor Fingar assisted Tate Stewart on an outside shot 0:55 into the third quarter. Aquinas took back the lead with a feed up the left side from Cecere to Jamir Jones. The Mustangs kicked themselves into the next gear and scored the next five goals. There was a vast difference between the first four goals (3 in man-up) and the next five. Ben Emerson turned the team around and scored with two drives from behind and feed from behind. Then assisted goals in a similar fashion (the first was a drive where he passed after the slide and the second was a straight feed to a cutter from behind). The Little Irish attempted to push back but they could not get the score back closer than two. Elliot Clemmons scored with a drive and Tschetter scored off a feed that was deflected into the cage by the defense. In the cage for Aquinas, Bryce Kelley finished at 50% with nine recorded saves.

The Mustangs will move on to the first round of the state tournament where they will face the Section VI Champion. Section VI plays their games tomorrow: #1 seeded Gowanda will face #2 seeded Akron at 3:30.

Canandaigua vs Thomasd

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: Second seeded Webster Thomas took the lead late in the first quarter and never looked back. The Titans defeated Canandaigua (fourth seed) 16-10. This was only the third time in 10 years that the #1 seed was not present in the finals. The first was in 2010 when top seeded Canandaigua was knocked out by #5 seeded Irondequoit (who won the title that year) and the second was in 2013 when #4 seeded Penfield took out top seeded Fairport (and also won the title). This year the Braves took out the top seeded Churchville-Chili in overtime (12-11), but could not continue the trend of winning the whole tournament.Thomas vs CA

Although the Braves kept in close for a quarter, Thomas scored six unanswered goals to go up 9-3 with 7:48 remaining in the second quarter. The Braves kept the game close and fought back to within three (11-8), but never got closer. The two key players for the Titans were Travis Ford (7g) and Nick Mabe (3g-4a).

The Braves took their second lead only 0:44 later when Carson Greene scored with a drive from behind the cage. Greene finished with 2g-3a for the Braves. Thomas scored the next two goals to take their first lead. Travis Ford scored the first of his 7 goals with a drive from the top of the restraining line. Trevor Ford scored next to take the lead with a feed from behind the cage from Currie. Devin Andrews scored with a drive of his own for the Braves to tie the game for the final time at 3-3. Thomas scored two more goals to end the quarter and lead 5-3.

Broomfield scored his first for the Braves with an outside shot and Brad Smith scored his first for the Titans off a feed from Mabe (his fourth assist).

In the cage for Thomas, Matt Yonko recorded 9 saves. The Braves split two goalies between the pipes. Brandon Moore and Tim Rice switched multiple times throughout the game.

Pittsford vs Victor

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: Victor fought back after trailing 8-4 to defeated Pittsford 14-12. The Blue Devils scored seven out of eight straight goals to take the lead in the fourth quarter. As opposed to their normal games, only 4 of their 14 goals were assisted. Normally all about quick, sharp passes until they find an opening, in tonight`s contest, the majority of their goals were 1-1 drives and there was very little of their normal passes.

Pittsford vs VictorOn the other hand, the Panthers came out strong in the first half and took a 6-4 lead at the half, which they increased to 8-5 before Victor started to fight back in the third quarter. Pittsford had 7 of their 12 goals assisted. Senior Jonathan Perotto played well for Pittsford and finished with 5g-1a for the Panthers. The game was vastly split between the beginning and the end. In the first half the Panthers were the dominate force. they controlled the tempo and were in charge offensively and defensively. The Blue Devils looked flat, their drives to cage were one dimensional and their defense was not as strong as usual. In the second half, the Panthers couldn't keep up the pace they set in the first half and Victor capitalized. The Blue Devils began to pass the ball and took control of the pacing of the game. They scored a big streak and then kept the Panthers from mounting a comeback. Pittsford only took 6 shots in the fourth quarter with 2 goals (4 on cage).

The Panthers scored the opening goal with Colby Barker assisting Perotto for his first goal. Perotto finished the game with 7 shots, 6 on cage and 5 goals (all assisted). Victor scored the next two goals with a drive from Mike DeMarco and a loose ball on the crease that was picked up and scored by Andrew Russell. The Blue Devil`s first lead only lasted 0:42 before Pittsford tied the game again at 2-2. Barker scored the first of his 3g-2a of an inside dodge.

He stepped into the pass and dodged around the defense to tie the game at 2. The first quarter ended with a 2-2 tied score.Pittsford vs Victor

In the second quarter, Pittsford began to make a move. They outscored the Blue Devils 4-2with the first two goals by long stick middie, Jared Conners, assisting Perotto on a fast-break goal and Barker scoring unassisted on a straight drive at the cage. Victor tied the game again at 4-4 after scoring back to back goals. Face-off midfielder TD Ierlan scored the next goal. After a technical win, he had the ball at the midfield line and was picked-up by All American and "Defensive Player of the Year", Jared Conners. Ierlan (also an All-American) took the ball to the cage and scored 1-1 against Conners. Two minutes later, Austin Jobson scored on another 1-1 dodge at the cage. The score was tied 4-4 with 8:19 remaining in the half. Pittsford scored the final two goals of the half to take a 6-4 lead into halftime. Jeremy Jacob and Frank Imburgia both scored unassisted goals for the Panthers.

In the early third quarter, Pittsford kept up their pressure and added two more goals. Both were scored by Perotto with assists from Barker and Conners. The first was scored during man-up and the second was scored on a slow-break. The third quarter was the highest scoring quarter with a combined 10 goals. Ryan Maloney scored the first of his 3g-2a after picking up the loose ball on the crease after a save by Alec Starr. Pittsford re-took the four goal lead with Perotto assisting Connor Fitzgerald on the ninth Panther goal. With 6:11 remaining, Pittsford led by four. The Panthers began their comeback with five of the next six goals to finish the third quarter tied 10-10.

Pittsford vs VictorThe beginning of the fourth quarter decided the game with Victor scoring two goals to take back the lead for the first time since six minutes remaining in the first quarter. Lambert scored three back to back goals for the Blue Devils to put them back on top. The go ahead 11-10 goal was scored after a technical face-off win. He scored 0:12 into the quarter. One minute later, Maloney scored his second with an outside shot. Barker scored the penultimate Pittsford goal in attempts to re-tie the game. He scored with a dodge from the top to put the Panthers down by 1 (12-11). Victor quickly added two more and began to slow down the play. Dan Barrow and DeMarco each scored (both assisted by Maloney). The first "Keep it in" call against the Blue Devils came with 7 minutes left in the game. After the two goals, Victor led 14-11. Pittsford added one more goal with Conners scoring with a feed from Fitzgerald.

In the cage for Victor, Ierlan finished with 10 saves. For Pittsford, Starr recorded 14 saves. At the face-off draw, TD Ierlan finished at 22/30 with a team leading 15 ground balls.

GLaxFive.NET - A New Site for Section Five Girls

- Updated In the first month of the season, GLaxFive.NET has vended 75,000 pages to 2,730 unique readers.

Based on the popular boys site, SportsFive.NET, the new site for girls' lacrosse, GLaxFive.NET, will contain, over time, much of the same information. Beyond the schedules and results, other popular areas will include rosters, statistics and player profiles. Much of this information is in the formative stages and will be dependent of the willingness of coaches, parents, players and fans to submit the various types of information.

Various volunteer positions will help to move the data along. Each team will be looking for "team reporters" who will be trained to submit stats, and other information on game days and perhaps schedule and roster changes as they occur during the season.

At this time, many of the Head Coaches have turned in information about their teams and those team pages have been updated. Results from previous years and tournament data going back about ten years is on-line. Sectionals and New York State brackets go back to 2006 are available.

Throughout the year, information of interest will be posted. Over time, it is expected that the site will, like the boys' site, be the definitive source of information for girls' lacrosse in New York State Section Five.

Saturday: Both Class B Winners Win in Overtime

- With the semifinals concluded, the teams are set for the 2016 Section Five Championships. Victor will play Pittsford in Class A, Thomas will play Canandaigua in Class B and Penn Yan will play Aquinas in Class C. The Class C semifinals turned out to be mismatches with Penn Yan defeating Gananda 19-7 and Aquinas beating Wayne 14-1. It was quite a different story in the Class B semis as both winning teams won in overtime. Of interest is that neither winning team led during regulation and both teams won their game with a man up goal.

The newly updated tournament brackets can be found on the Tournament Page or Class A - Class B - Class C.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: Canandaigua fought back from a 10-5 deficit at the end of the third quarter to force overtime and then won 12-11 over previously undefeated Churchville-Chili. The Braves never led and only had the game tied twice (1-1 and 11-11). They scored when it mattered, in sudden death overtime, to secure the win. The Saints took control of the game for three quarters before the Braves fought back in the fourth. As the Braves got closer and closer to a tie game, they became more amped up and the Saints had more trouble staying in the lead.

The first three quarters belonged to the Saints as they scored the opening goal and three of the first four to lead 3-1 after 12 minutes. Many of their earlier goals were results of quick passes. The first was scored with Corey Yunker assisting Jacob Buck after a series of three passed and a look inside to the crease. Canandaigua tied the game for the first of only two times with a fast-break goal by Coron Broomfield. The Saints scored the next two with rapid passing. The first was Jason Tebo assisting AJ Soto and the second was Buck assisting Yunker.

Both teams added two goals in the second quarter. Tebo and Buck scored unassisted goal for the Saints. Connor McClain scored with a high drive from behind the cage for the Braves. Devin Andrews scored the first of his 5g-1a with another drive from behind the cage. The Saints led 5-3 at the half. A major success for the Saints was goalie Matt Cobb. He finished with 21 saves and nearly secured the win for the Saints. He had three strong quarters and finished at 64% against a post-season tested Braves.

Churchville vs CanandaiguaThe Saints pulled away in the third quarter and looked good to secure the win. They added five and held Canandaigua to only two. The major turning point in the final quarter came when the Saints led by 3 (11-8) with just under four minutes on the clock. They were man-down and stopped the extra-man opportunity for the Braves and then cleared the ball up field. Instead of running out the penalty, they forced a shot that was saved by Brandon Moore (8 saves on the game). The ball was cleared and a goal was scored on fast-break (still man-up). On the ensuing face-off the Braves won and got another fast-break goal. In a span of less than one minute the Saints had lost the ball, and their three goal lead was cut to only one.

The Braves forced overtime with 0:38 on the clock and Andrews scored his fifth goal with an outside shot from the left flat. Neither team could secure the win in the final thirty seconds. Churchville-Chili won the final face-off and had a timeout with 0:20 remaining; however, they could not convert. In overtime, Canandaigua won the draw and had the first shot at the cage. After a penalty, left Churchville-Chili man-down. Canandaigua scored the game winning with Johnny DelForte scoring from an inside feed from Carson Greene.

Canandaigua was the first team in the Class B tournament to defeat a higher seed and the #4 seed will move on the finals to face #2 seeded Webster Thomas, who also won in overtime.

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.

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".
