Leading off today:
After struggling early as Chaminade
fell behind 3-1, goalie Liam Entenmann finished with 16 saves to highlight a 13-7 victory over St. Anthony's in a matchup of perennial Long Island boys lacrosse powers Wednesday.
"He played spectacular, but with Liam, you kind of get used to that," Flyers midfielder Reilly Gray said. "It's insane, but you see the stuff he does at practice, it's really awesome. But not surprising at all."
Gray scored three first-quarter goals and four in the game as Chaminade improved to 4-0 and handed the Friars their first loss. James Ball and Kevin Kuttin connected twice apiece.
The teams play again May 15 in what amounts to a de facto CHSAA Class AAA championship game.
"Everyone knows about Chaminade vs. St. Anthony's," Entenmann said. "In my opinion, I think it's the biggest rivalry in the country and definitely in this area. Everyone wakes up that day and says, 'This is what we play for.'"
Armed and dangerous: Depew seems to have pitching to spare on the baseball diamond this spring. Senior Josh Doss threw a two-hitter in a 3-2 win over Lancaster last week, Joe Pagano pitched a no-hitter in the Wildcats league opener against Pioneer on Monday and then Ethan Krakowski maintained the momentum Wednesday.
Krakowski hurled a one-hitter with five strikeouts and surrendered just two walks in a 12-0 win at Lake Shore as defending ECIC divisional champs faced off. Krakowski had a no-hitter going until Zach Evans' one-out single in the bottom of the seventh.
Jake Wentland drove in four runs with a pair of singles in the win.
• Eden rallied from an 11 runs down against Springville to tie the contest at 11-11 before the game was suspended by darkness in the top of the eighth inning.
Allegation of ugly taunts: The Marlboro Central School District has begun an investigation into a complaint that one or more of its varsity baseball players verbally harassed a Rondout Valley pitcher over his sexual orientation during Wednesday's game.
According to Hudson Valley Sports Report, senior Sam Culwell posted the allegation on Facebook.
Culwell, who came out as bisexual last year, wrote that Rondout Valley coach Paul Bogart came out to the mound to talk to him in the sixth inning when the comments were made.
"At this point I had already struck out one batter and as my coach comes up to talk to me all I hear from the opposing dugout is 'tell him he's a failure and a (redacted),'" Culwell
