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.
