Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018: Baldwinsville girls win with goal late in OT

   Leading off today: Hannah Mimas scored with 28 second remaining in the second overtime as Baldwinsville pulled out a 3-2 girls soccer victory against Fayetteville-Manlius on Wednesday.

   Baldwinsville, the defending NYSPHSAA Class A champion, is ranked seventh this week by the New York State Sportswriters Association.

   Mimas scored 12 minutes before halftime to tie the score, and the Bees' Kelsey DeLola converted a penalty kick wit nine minuses left in regulation to take the lead. Katy Krueger scored for F-M to force overtime.

   More girls soccer: In a battle for first place in Allegany County Division I, Hinsdale earned a 2-1 victory and handed Fillmore its first league loss in four years.

   Hinsdale struck in the third minute when Ashley Chapman rebounded an Ava Belec shot. Fillmore's Macy Miller tied the game two minutes later, and Hinsdale went ahead for good on Belec's tap-in after an indirect kick in the 19th minute.

   Fillmore had won 27 straight league games since the start of the 2015 season and was 54-1-1 overall in regular-season play during that span. The Eagles are ranked second in Class D this week.

   Girls rankings: As occasionally happens because of the nature of the weekly process, part of our latest NYSSWA soccer rankings was rendered obsolete before we had a chance to post those ratings.

   Hempstead Sacred Heart had moved up a notch to No. 1 in Class A, but that team fell to St. Anthony's 2-0 on Monday, as was reported in yesterday's blog.

   Boys soccer: Allegany-Limestone's Bryant Talbot had three goals and seven assists in an 11-0 win over Randolph in which Conner Golley tied the Section 6 record with his 42nd career shutout.

   Golley made four saves.

   Dimitrios Telonis of Manlius Pebble Hill holds the state record with 76 shutouts from 2002-06.

   Speaking of records: Maple Grove senior Easton Tanner of Maple Grove set a state record with six touchdown catches and scored seven times overall in a 54-24 football victory over Cattaraugus/Little Valley on Monday night.

   The game was rescheduled from Friday because of a power outage.

   The scoring catches from Carson Crist (12-for-14, 301 yards) covered 22, 17, 55, 22, 65 and 30 yards, and Tanner also ran 37 yards for a touchdown.


   State AG files lawsuit: An Endicott basketball recruiting business lured aspiring college and pro players with false claims of providing "the very best" coaching, training and educational facilities only to leave some players crammed into inadequate housing and enrolled in an unaccredited school, New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood announced Tuesday.

   A lawsuit filed last week by Underwood in State Supreme football site

Court in Broome County seeks to stop AAUConnect, also known as New York International Academy, from "engaging in fraudulent and deceptive conduct" and wants operators to repay the customers it defrauded.

   Underwood named husband-and-wife operators Chris Bevin and Hazel Ward as co-respondents to the petition.

   The suit says AAUConnect enrollees were promised "upscale" meals, college-like living arrangements and college-quality playing facilities. Instead, Underwood said players were fed in a "stripped-down room," housed in a "filthy" building and played in community centers and church gyms. She said the operators never obtained authority from the state Department of Education to run a high school.

   Nicknames under microscope: A half-dozen speakers urged Ohio's state board of education last week to ban the use of Native American nicknames, logos and mascots for school sports teams.

   Nineteen high schools use nicknames such as Redskins, Braves, Indians and Warriors, most with an accompanying Indian-related logo.

   Ohio Department of Education spokeswoman Brittany Halpin said the decision on nicknames and logos is left to local school boards, but she added, "We encourage districts to be respectful to Native American heritage."

   The American Indian Sports Team Mascots website says Ohio ranks No. 1 nationally in use of Indian team nicknames and logos, with Ohio public schools using the Redskins nickname more than any other state.
