  --  The second game of the day at Hamburg was for the Class A "Far Western" championship and featured Fairport against Orchard Park. In a rare New York State Tournament event, senior All-American goalie, Blaze Riorden from Fairport won a 7-0 shutout for the Red Raiders. Orchard Park Blaize RiordenHead Coach Gene Tundo said, after the game, that he doesn't think that the Quakers have ever been shut out before.

The game was a slow and deliberate contest. Fairport scored one unanswered goal in each of the first three quarters. Junior midfielder Jay Vakiener scored the first goal, unassisted with 2:59 left in the first quarter. Senior midfielder Andrew Brennan scored the second goal with 5:51 left in the half and Vakiener scored the lone goal with 9:01 left in the third quarter.

The Red Raiders opened things up in the last quarter. Senior midfielder and All-American, Derek DeJoe figured in on three of the four goals scored. The first was scored with 9:21 left and the last was scored with 2:23 left in the game. In between, Pat VanBortle scored, assisted by DeJoe, and senior middie Brian Martin scored an unassisted goal.

The Red Raider defense was anchored by Riorden and played a key role in keeping the Orchard Park offense away from the crease. The Quakers (13-5) had averaged over 13 goals per game as they entered this game. Two of their losses came at the hands of Section Five teams from Pittsford and Penfield. There two other losses were close ones to Clarence and Niagara Wheatfield.

Fairport will now move on to the semi final round and will face Ithaca who beat Liverpool 18-8 today. Fairport had a home victory against the Little Red back in early April. Fairport won that game 12-7 but the game was punctuated by many penalties assessed to Ithaca. The Ithaca fans were convinced that the officiating played a role in the win and will be looking for revenge on Wednesday.return to top

  --  The Class C game started off the Far Western Championship in Hamburg (Section VI). Penn Yan played a close game with Silver Creek and took revenge for the loss they suffered in their 2011 Brandon Macemeeting. The Mustangs started with a 5-4 lead in the first quarter. The Mustangs scored two goals at the end of the first quarter and then continued the scoring streak with five more unanswered goals, before Zed Williams and John Jimerson started a goal-scoring streak for Silver Creek.

After leading 10-6 at the half, Silver Creek added one more, before James Burdette began a Mustang clear and took it all the way to the goal. The Black Knights scored three unanswered goals to take the score to 11-10 with 2:45 left in the game. Penn Yan, however, scored two goals in the last minute of the third quarter to finish up 13-10.

The final twelve minutes were exciting as Silver Creek came back with three goals to tie the game at 13-13 with 3:19 left in the game. The tying goal was scored by Zed Williams who, with the goal, broke the New York State career points record previously held by Casey Powell (553 pts 1991-94). Thirty-two second later, Ryan Maciejewski scored the game winner with an assist from Bradley Voigt.

The keys to the game came from two different directions. The first was penalty trouble by Silver Creek, who spent much of the game man-down. Many of the penalties were multiple minute fouls for late or violent checks. The second key was the extraordinary play by sophomore goalie Brandon Maciejewski who made eighteen saves in the cage. Many of the saves were point-blank shots which he saved with his helmet or body. The last shot of the game, a strong outside shot by Zed Williams, was saved by "Mace" to preserve the win for the Mustangs.

Penn Yan moves on to the semifinal round in Syracuse where they will take on Homer from Section III who defeated Salmon River (Section X) 12-8 this afternoon. return to top
