Tuesday is Championship Day

- CNBThe top seeded teams will play tomorrow and it looks like anyone can win in each of the Classes. The Day of Champions, sponsored by Canandaigua National Bank and Trust, will be held at Webster Schroeder High School. This year, the Class B game will be held first, starting at 3:45.

VICTOR vs CANANDAIGUA

Vic vs CAFirst up will be the Class B Championship that has Victor (#1) playing Canandaigua (#2) at 3:45. The Blue Devils won an early season game against the Braves, but that was a long time ago and both teams have improved throughout the season. Victor sophomore face off specialist T.D. Ierlan has won 285 face offs this year (82%) and givers the Blue Devils lots of possessions. Sophomore attackman Ryan Maloney is the Victor point leader with 41g-25a. Canandaigua has four players with over 40 points. Leading the group that includes Eric Munn, Mitch Schaeffer and Ben Smith-Wilcox is Connor Hulme with 46g-22a. It is hard to cover all of the CA threats.

PENN YAN vs PAL-MAC

PY vs PMThe second game features Penn Yan (#1) playing Pal-Mac (#2) at 5:15. In the history of the Class C tournament The Mustangs have won all but one time. They have won 18 times. They have numerous offensive threats including Rion Davison (41g-24a), Austin Fingar (24g-24a), Season Emerson (41g-24a) and team leader Bradley Voigt (64=46a). In the cage is Brandon Maciejewski who in his five years on the Varsity has made 706 saves (63%). This will be the first trip to the finals for Pal-Mac (17-1) but they have had an exciting year featuring senior attackman Ben Reeves, a two-time All-American who scored his 600th career point in the semi finals. He leads the Red Raiders with 83g-84a. but there are others who can score too. Tyler Hurlbutt has 56g-17a, Jarett Duchesneau has 34g-30a and Brian Burger and Stephen Morrell each have 50 points. It could be a high scoring game.

FAIRPORT vs PITTSFORD

Fpt vs PittsThe Class A final is set for 7:30 with Fairport (#1) playing Pittsford (#2). The Red Raiders won the regular season match up 7-4 in early May and they broke the Panthers 11-0 winning streak. Justin Kesselring lead the Fairport offense with 41g-22a but The Red Raiders also boast Dan McAvoy (30g-21a) and Cam Gebhardt (30g-19a) who has demonstrated he likes to play in big games. In the goal is Joey Scalise who has recorded 149 saves (68%) and has been making very dramatic saves at the end of his senior year. The Pittsford defense has received great accolades this year and for good reason. With a number of talented long-sticks that includes Nick Panara, Greg Weyl, Jared Conners and Mike Perotto, the Panthers defense plays as a unit, often double and triple teaming an opponent with their very aggressive play. Pittsford has lots of offense too, with Jon Perotto (33g-9a), Stephen Quinzi (32g-16a) and Brandon Barker (31g-19a) leading the scoring. Ryan Fairbrother leads the team in ground balls mostly the result of his many face off wins (115 wins, 56%). Pittsford has four goalies, but more of the time has gone to junior, Kevin Maguire who has 90 saves (56%).Pittsford will be looking for revenge for the first game, but Fairport is deep and determined.

With St. John Fisher College replacing their turf, the finals will be played at Webster Schroeder High School, which is fitting as the Webster community is celebrating their 50th lacrosse anniversary this year. Section V charges $4.00 for boys or girls lacrosse finals.
