Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018: Jamesville-DeWitt snaps Spencerport's unbeaten streak

   Leading off today: Hayley Quackenbush scored off a corner kick with five minutes left in the second overtime, giving Jamesville-DeWitt a 1-0 win over Spencerport in the NYSPHSAA girls Class A soccer semifinals on Saturday.

   The outcome snapped a 64-game unbeaten streak for Spencerport, a two-time defending New York State Public High School Athletic Association champion. The Rangers had defeated J-D for the 2016 title.

   "This year I really just wanted it; our whole team wanted it," Quackenbush said. "Our coaches were motivating us the entire season. We were preparing for this one game, and we really just pulled it out."

   The Red Rams are unscored upon in their last four games and will take on Valley Stream South in Sunday's final at Cortland High School.

   More '17 champs ousted: Two girls teams playing up a class after winning championships a season ago were eliminated.

   In Class B, Holland Patent defeated Allegany-Limestone 4-0. A-L was the Class C champ in 2017.

   Wheatland-Chili, a back-to-back winner in Class D, suffered a 2-1 loss to Little Falls in Class C.

   Early goals by Annastasha Dornburgh and Mayle Lupia-Eannace put Holland Patent ahead for good, and goalkeeper Hayden Roberts booked the Golden Knights' 17 shutout of the season.

   Second-half goals by Nicole Failing and Geena Morotti rallied Little Falls past Wheatland-Chili and into Sunday's final vs. Stillwater.

   Falling has a team-high 29 goals this season.

   Late goal advances M-W: Liz Allen converted a pass from Kaelyn Salatto for a goal from short range with 2:28 to go as Monroe-Woodbury edged Smithtown West 1-0 in the Class AA semifinals.

   "I felt like I was watching a movie," said captain Hannah Kelly, who trailed the play. "It was perfect ... two minutes left on the clock. It was like one of those miracles."

   Fantastic finish: Sarah Paige scored midway through the first overtime and the Fort Ann held on to edge Parishville-Hopkinton 2-1 in the Class D semifinals.

   Amanda Godfrey had put Fort Ann ahead 8:30 into the contest, and P-H's Erica Sloan connected with 13 minutes to go in regulation.

   "We were trying to play more defensive (before the Parishville-Hopkinton goal), and we just had to switch and play more offense for overtime," Paige said. "We did a good job of regrouping. We all came out stronger than ever. We were ready."

   Rematch ahead: Chazy and Mount Academy are headed for a rematch after having shared the 2017 Class D championship with a 1-1 tie.

  •    Mount Academy advanced on penalty kicks by a 4-1 margin after playing to a 2-2 overtime tie against C.G. Finney. Aaron Waldner recorded the winning PK after Everett Button, Davis Mason and Preston Button converted the Eagles' first three attempts.

       Emmanuel Rubingu of Finney scored early in the second half, but Everett Button and Benson Arnold responded to give Mount Academy the lead with 18 minutes to play.

       Finney's Ian Lau forced overtime with a goal with 10 minutes left.

       Chazy scored early in both halves of a 2-0 victory against Marathon. Tanner Conners and Tristan Conners accounted for a goal apiece, and Ben Norcross had to make just one save to record the shutout.

       Clarence can make history: Clarence can become the first Section 6 boys team to win the largest-school championship on Sunday after advancing with a 1-0 win over Port Washington.

       Ross Showalter redirected a pass from Taha Ahmed in the 69th minute for the game's lone goal and his 10th of the season.

       Clarence had only one shot on goal in the second half before Showalter's goal and didn't record a corner kick in the game's first 74 minutes.

       The Red Devils' opponent in the final will be Monroe-Woodbury, a 4-1 victor against Baldwinsville, a team that had surrendered just two goals all season. Chris Ryan gave the Crusaders a 2-1 lead with less than five minutes remaining in the first half.

       Lansing going for two: Eli Bartholomew did all the winners' scoring as Lansing downed Madrid-Waddington 3-1 to move one win away from a repeat state title in Class C.

       Bartholomew broke a 1-1 tie with a goal with 28:30 remaining.

       Lansing will play Geneseo, a 5-1 winner over S.S. Seward on the strength of a hat trick from Jack Gagnier.
