Leading off today:
Class B was the center of the New York boys lacrosse world Saturday with several results that will have a major bearing on the next set of New York State Sportswriters Association ratings.
The big news was Manhasset's 8-7 victory over Chaminade, the state's top-rated Class A team, on Steven Schneider's goal with 31 seconds to play. Kevin Mack drew an extra defender on his cut around the net, freeing Schneider, who took the feed and fired a high shot inside the far post.
"I've been playing with him since sixth grade and he's been doing that ward move when he gets really low and comes to the goal," said Schneider, a North Carolina recruit. "He did all the work on that play."
Trailing 7-5, Chaminade's Regan Quinn fed Aidan Byrnes for a goal and Sean Kuttin scored to tie with 2:25 left.
Manhasset, which defeated fourth-ranked Garden City a week earlier, is ranked No. 2 in Class B.
"It's a little sigh of relief right now because those two games on back-to-back (Saturdays) are pretty challenging," Schneider said. "We still have a ton of work to do and we're just blessed we can come up with these two huge wins."
• Victor, the state's top-ranked B squad, took its first loss in Section 5 in nearly three full years. Tenth-ranked Canandaigua dropped the Blue Devils 8-5 as senior goalie Brandon Moore turned aside 15 shots.
Victor led 3-1 at the half. A man-up goal by senior attackman Carson Greene (two goals, three assists) put Canandaigua ahead 4-3 midway through the third quarter.
Victor forged a 5-5 tie in the fourth, but Greene scored with 7:14 to go, and junior midfielder Alex Burley made it 7-5 with 2:43 left.
"It's May, this is when you want to be playing your best lacrosse," first-year Braves coach Deven York said. "In the beginning of this game, we were worried about matchups but we got away from that at halftime. We just said let's go with who is out there, force everyone to their weak hand, and it worked out for us."
• In a rematch of the 2016 Long Island Class B final, Garden City rallied for a 12-11 win over Shoreham-Wading River, ranked third in Class C this spring.
The Trojans outscored S-WR 6-1 in the third quarter to erase a 7-5 deficit. Seniors Finn Gibbons (three goals, two assists), J.P. Basile (two goals, three assists) and Jamie Atkinson (three goals) led Garden City. Gibbons scored twice in the third, while Basile had a goal and two of his assists in the quarter.
"You're only going to go as far as your seniors take you," Trojans coach Steve Finnell said. "They did a great job today in a nice win over a great program."
• Yorktown, ranked third in Class B, rolled to a 12-3 victory vs. Lakeland/Panas, the No. 13 team in Class A.
The Huskers broke to a 6-0 lead through the end of the first quarter.
Kyle Casey paced Yorktown with three goals and three assists.
More boys lacrosse: Jamesville-DeWitt overcame an early two-goal deficit to defeat Fayetteville-Manlius 14-8 in action between Section 3 rivals.
J-D is No. 2 in the state in Class C. F-M is No. 18 in Class A.
Junior Griffin Cook and senior Ryan Archer each scored four goals and added two assists for the Red Rams, the 2016 state Class B champions.
