 -- special report Exactly one year ago, Canandaigua Academy lost a game to Corning East. They have won ever since and preserved their twenty-six game winning streak today with an 11-9 win at Evans Field. Last year's game, played in Corning, was highlighted by the goalie play of Nicky King (CA) and Tyler White (CE) and they were both back to play the return game today. King (11s/9ga) made some wonderful saves but lost on a number of bounce shots, while White (12s/11ga) also made some spectacular saves, but suffered from high corner shots by a number of Canandaigua players.

With occasional frozen sleet and otherwise temperatures in the low forties, it seemed unusually cold, after all of the warm weather of the first few weeks of lacrosse. Corning started the scoring at 9:46 when Matt Nehring scored with a bounce shot that landed over Kings shoulder. Both teams spent a great deal of time on each offensive set moving the ball around the outside, not always testing match ups, but feeling players out.

ca-ceSenior midfielder Tom LaCrosse started the Canandaigua scoring with a drive from the top of the box to the left, scoring on a medium range shot, high into the net. Twenty second later, after a pushing call that gave the Braves a man up opportunity, senior attackman Deven Alves fed the ball to Adam Knapton on the low post. The Braves scored two more before the end of the quarter. The first, at 3:53, saw a short pass from Knapton to senior middie Gannon Osborn, open right on the crease. The second, at 1:27, was on an end-to-end clear when Osborn took the ball deep in his defensive end, dodged three riding Trojans and then dodged one more on the offensive end before finishing with the ball in the net. With 0:14 left, Jordan Frysinger fed Ryan Schwartz, cutting to the crease for the last goal of the quarter for Corning as the Braves led 4-2.

The Canandaigua defense was deliberate and thoughtful and produced a good number of take-aways and the vast amount of their clears.

An off sides call at the end of the quarter gave the Braves the ball to start the second stanza and they scored in their man up set; LaCrosse from the top of the box on a feed from Knapton. On their next offensive set, ca-ceCanandaigua scored again, this time on a beautiful touch feed from Alves to Jordan Reals on to the right of the goalie, playing the left post. For most of the rest of the half, it was a back and forth scoring game with East scoring at 7:57 (Nehring on a bounce shot), followed by Alves on a crease drive from behind the net at 6:38. Corning was back at 5:09 when Ryan Schwartz made many switchback, before he positioned himself in front of the net for a wrist shot past King.

At 4:16, Knapton received the ball from Alves from back right and dodged an inside defender, finishing with a wrist shot past White. The Trojans scored the last two goals, in a flurry of activity, both by Ben Dunlavey and just thirteen seconds apart. The first was scored with 0:32 left in the half when he picked up a blocked shot that came of King's chest and, after scooping up the ground ball, popped it into the net. The second, 0:19 was scored with a quick turn back and shot into the upper corner. Although the Braves controlled much of the first half, they ca-ceallowed the Trojans, in the last minute to bring the score to 8-6.

The third quarter saw relatively little scoring with CA adding one and East adding two, bringing them to within one goal by the end of the quarter. Osborn scored the lone goal for the Braves with a ground ball to a medium range shot on the high crease. Dunlavey received the ball from Devin Grimaldi (behind the net) as he cut to the crease and Frysinger added an unassisted goal (at 4:37) when he drove from behind the net, looking for a feed, and finding none, turned hard inside for the score. The Corning offense was deliberate and patient throughout the game, moving the ball well on the outside and constantly looking for cutters, who sometimes were missing. The third quarter ended with Canandaigua up 9-8.

Canandaigua seemed to rush their offense at times, particularly in the last quarter and although it paid off with two goals it lost them possession at a number of key moment s. The Peck boys gave the Braves a two point lead with Collin feeding Bryan at 7:03. Alves scored the last goal of the game for Canandaigua at 5:22 when he dodged from the right and scored with an outside shot. Corning had plenty of ball time in the last half of the fourth quarter and scored a single goal at 4:45, when after a time out, Grimaldi ran behind the goal, then cut tight around the crease and scored with an underhand shot that rose to the top left corner. Each team called time outs in the last two minutes of the game; East trying to set up scoring plays, and the Braves trying to keep possession away from the Trojan. A critical save by King in the last minute of the game ensured that the game did not go to overtime.  return
