Leading off today:
Senior Joseph Kiesa scored 30 seconds into overtime to lift Jamesville-DeWitt
a 9-8 victory over Victor in boys lacrosse Saturday.
Kiesa (two goals) scored off a feed from Casey Platenik. Ryan Archer and Griffin Cook scored three goals apiece for the Red Rams. Goalie Bennett Chirco had 11 saves in the victory.
The teams were the NYSPHSAA champions in their respective classes a year ago, with each moving down a class this spring as the tournament expands to four classes. Victor is ranked fourth in Class B and J-D is second in third.
"It's great timing for us, to play a team like that and win it," J-D coach Jamie Archer told Syracuse.com. "It was a great game -- hard-fought all the way through."
