Leading off today:
Marion junior soccer star Chloe DeLyser
scored four times Tuesday to become Section 5's all-time leader with 197 career goals.
Marion defeated Williamson 5-0.
DeLyser, an Ohio State commit who has 16 goals in her first four games this season, broke the mark of 195 by Stephany Ellison of Whitesville. She is coming off a 68-goal sophomore campaign.
Late heroics: Jose Pena scored twice in the final 59.4 seconds to lift Chaminade past St. John the Baptist 4-3 in CHSAA boys soccer action.
Chaminade is the three-time defending Catholic High School Athletic Association champion and owns nine straight wins vs. St. John the Baptist.
Cougars goalkeeper Ryan Sisco saved a hard shot but the ricochet went to Pena right in front of the goal for a tap-in with just under a minute to play. Chaminade was awarded a direct kick with :05.9 to play and Pena skipped it just past a diving Sisco for the win.
"Being a part of this program, you learn to never let up," Pena said. "To score the two goals right at the end? It's an amazing feeling."
SV remembers coach: The Sauquoit Valley girls soccer team scored a 2-0 win over Cooperstown on the day that former coach Tim Clive was remembered.
Clive dies in February a the age of 71 after a long career coaching soccer and basketball. His 2017 soccer team played in the Section 3 finals.
"This year has been a huge change and adjustment for the girls with the passing of Coach Clive," new head coach Courtney Roberts said. "Coach Clive poured his heart and soul into coaching and was extremely dedicated to building the girls soccer program at Sauquoit. He was always willing to go out of his way to help others and put others before himself."
More soccer: Senior Gabe Mastrangelo set a Hamburg boys record for career goals with 49 when he scored three times in the Bulldogs' 6-0 victory vs. West Seneca West on Monday.
Rankings progress: The first New York State Sportswriters Association football rankings were released Wednesday morning.
Lancaster starts at No. 1 in Class AA and faces an immediate test this weekend against No. 10 Williamsville North.
We rarely tie teams at No. 1 during the regular season, but the consensus among NYSSWA collaborators was that too little separates West Seneca West and Garden City to split hairs in Class A.
