Welcome to BLaxFive.NET

2019 Season

Welcome to the home of Section Five Boys Lacrosse. For more than seventeen years we have provided information about games, players and events. It is fun to think that this site has been around longer than more of the seniors playing this season. It is also fun to find a good number of current Head Coaches who still have player pages on this web site. In the last few seasons we have served, each year, more than a million pages to more than sixty-thousand viewers from all over the country and many parts of the world. Thanks for your support.

Well over 900 student-athletes will be competing throughout the season which will culminate in the crowning of championships in each of the four classes at the end of May. The champions will then move on to the New York State tournaments which will end right here in Rochester when the NYS finals are held on June 8th. This will be the third straight year that we have hosted the tournaments (and 5th in total).

There are all kinds of information in the 2018 Wrap Up article. Also of interest are the Player Pages, the Leaders Page and the History Pages.

Players of the Year Announced

- The 2019 Player of the year honors were announced at the end of the Section Five Championships. The winners were Jack Brennan from Irondequoit, Sutton Boland from Victor and Devin Campbell from Bloomfield-Honeoye.

Offensive Player of the Year

Jack Brennan - Irondequoit Senior

Sutton BolandIrondequoit senior attackman, Jack Brennan was named the Offensive Player of the Year. Scoring over fifty goals and over thirty assists this year he averaged more than five points per game. He finished his career with the Eagles with 289 points. In both 2018 and 2018 he was a first team All-League player and D&C AGR first team pick.

Coach Terry Coholan says: "For a player as talented as Jack it would be easy for him to be arrogant, but he is humble and is respected by all of his teammates and our coaching staff. Jack is going to be successful in whatever he chooses."

The US Lacrosse All American will be moving on to the University of Maryland in the fall.

 

Defensive Player of the Year

Sutton Boland - Victor Senior

Sutton Boland The senior defenseman, and long stick midfielder is a three-time All-Tournament Team member and a two-time first team All-League defenseman. He finished the regular season with fifty-two ground balls and sixteen takes and was recently selected as a US Lacrosse All-American.

Coach Jim Andre says: "Sutton Boland is the complete package. He is both an outstanding player and an outstanding person. He was  selected by his peers as team captain. He is a role model both on and off the field."

Next fall, Sutton will honor the commitment that he made early in his career at Victor to play for the Penn State University.

 

Sportsman of the Year

Devin Campbell - Bloomfield-Honeoye Senior

Devin CampbellCoach Brandon Trombley says: "Last year he was a three-year starter as a goalkeeper. He was the leader of our defense. Devin Campbell won first team all-league goalie in the Finger Lakes. However, as we needed offensive help in our league tournament, I switched Devin to offense in the middle of the game and he scored three goals in the 4th quarter to help us come back. Thinking I would hurt his chances of getting recruited as a goalie, I did not want to make this permanent. Devin texted me the next day and said, "Coach I just wanted to let you know that I can play middie or attack if that's what you feel is best for the team. I'm also willing to work with Owen if that's the way you decide to go." Owen was our freshman backup goalie."

"Devin went from a 1st team all-league goalie in 2018 to a 2nd team all-league midfielder in 2019. He is still the leader of our defense, but this year was different. He led our team in goals, points, ground balls, and was also the leader of our offense. It is clear to see that our two-time captain, Devin Campbell, is more than worthy of this award."

 


Marcus Whitman wins Sportsmanship Award

- The Marcus Whitman team earned the Class D Sportsmanship Award from the Genesee Valley Lacrosse Officials Association. The Steven R. Morgan Sportsmanship Award was presented by Rob Cantabene for GVLOA to Head Coach Greg O'Connor and some of his players at the halftime of the Class D game last night.

Thomas By One, Pal-Mac by Two

Thomas at McQuaidThomas won another low scoring game with a 5-4 win over McQuaid Jesuit. The Titans (5th seed) defeated Knights (4th seed) with a slow methodical pacing to the game. Throughout the contest, both teams were slow to go to the cage. They took their time before capitalizing and that led to a mostly back and forth contest. Both teams led with the game only being more than one goal apart a single time. STORY CONTINUES

Zach Baker (2g-6a) led the Red Raider offense as they made it past Bath in a close game between the top seeded Pal-Mac and 9th seeded Bath. The teams were tied at 5-5 at the half, but Pal-Mac outscored the Rams 7-4 in the third quarter and won 15-13.

Mynderse scored the first goal and stayed ahead in their game until Marcus Whitman tied the game in the second quarter and then continued to score with Seth Benedict leading the Wildcats with 6g-2a. Matt Mattoon had 3g-7a and Jake Borrelli made 5s (63%) to help Midlakes win their game against the Pride.

Lukas Stanat (5g-2a), Najeeb Awad (4g-3a), Owen Ronchetti (4g-2a) and Casey McDermott (2g-5a) helped to punch Brighton's ticket to the final four in the victory over Schroeder. Alexander Butcher had 5s (71%) for the Barons. Also making 5s (71%) was Canandaigua goalie Aiden Kenyon who, with twelve offensive players helped the Braves win their quarter final game with Spencerport.

Thomas at McQuaidJoey Pezzimenti had six goals to lead the Victor Blue Devils past Irondequoit. Liam Haller made 11s (68%) in the contest. Penn Yan avenged their 2018 loss to Aquinas as Colt Smith scored 2g-5a and Griffin Emerson made 9s (90%) for the Mustangs.
