Leading off today:
Defending NYSPHSAA boys Class AA soccer champion Monroe-Woodbury's 26-game unbeaten streak ended with a 3-2 overtime loss to Arlington
Frankie Colantuono capped his hat trick and an Arlington rally from two goals down in the second half by netting the winner in the second overtime.
Colantuono's first goal came less than a minute after the intermission following a handball call in the box. He tied the contest by trilling home a loose ball after the Crusaders' goalkeeper was caught at the edge of the box trying to control the ball.
Spencerport advances: You can always count on Spencerport and Our Lady of Mercy throwing everything they have at each other whenever they meet in girls soccer. Their latest showdown saw the Rangers outscore Mercy 3-0 in penalty kicks to advance to the final of Spencerport's tournament.
Senior goalie Catherine Wall made 10 saves in regulation and overtime in the rematch of the 2018 Section 5 Class A final before blanking the Monarchs in the shootout.
Lily Brongo staked Spencerport to a 1-0 lead 15 minutes in and Mercy tied with under 2:00 to go in regulation.
Football: Tyler Stowell scored touchdowns on a run, a pass reception and a kickoff return, booted a field goal and converted three extra-point attempts as Little Falls downed Adirondack 43-26. Stowell finished with 103 yards rushing on just three carriers.
Akron routed three-time defending Section 6 Class C champion Cleveland Hill 47-0. Quarterback Adam Mietz ran for four touchdowns and threw for a pair. Sophomore defensive end Gavin Susfolk recorded five sacks.
Wrestling figure dies: Tom Riccio, a renowned wrestling official and a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, died Sept. 9 in Murrells Inlet, S.C., after a 15-month battle with ALS, his family said. He was 77.
Riccio was involved in the sport in some capacity for 60 years. As an official in Suffolk County for 24 years, he was routinely called upon to work the most important matches of the season. He worked five New York State tournaments and was the co-founder of the Suffolk County Wrestling Officials Association.
"He had a real feel for the sport," said former Babylon coach Rudy Carastro. "He was very fair, knew when to make a call, and when not to. He had very good judgment."
You bet it's a bad idea: A handful of casinos in New York recently got the OK to open their sports books and accept wagers on college and professional sports. I'm confident you'll never see betting permitted on high school sports
