Given the shortened schedule this spring, games were played Monday through Saturday.
On Monday, May 17th a nine goal second quarter led to a 12-2 half as Spencerport (7-0) posted an 18-4 win for the Rangers over Aquinas. Five goals in the third quarter made a difference as Penfield defeated Hilton 12-7. Irondequoit scored the first three goals and never trailed as they defeated visiting Brighton tonight 10-5. Canandaigua travelled to Pittsford where the Braves scored five unanswered goals in the first and four unanswered goals in the second on their way to an 11-2 win. Senior midfielder Rob Crowley scored one of his two goals in overtime on a pass from Kole Stuver to give Fairport a 6-5 win at McQuaid Jesuit. Other winners were Wayne, Victor, Rush-Henrietta, HF-L, Bath and Geneva
On Tuesday, of the seven games played, only one was close with the rest of the winners outscoring the losers 110-13. Marcus Whitman (8-1) played Geneva (6-3) to a 9-6 win. Key to the win was the work of senior A/M Ryan Herod who with is 4g-3a was involved in seven of the Wildcat's nine goals. Other winners were Aquinas, Bath, Pal-Mac, Wayne, Livonia-Avon and Penn Yan.
On On Wednesday there were nine games played and although there were close moments, in the end the scores were not close. Honeoye Falls-Lima won 12-6 against Churchville-Chili, Thomas beat Penfield 8-3 as Ethan Ruller made 15s/3ga. It was a 9-5 win for Pittsford over Hilton. Other winner were Canandaigua, Spencerport, Fairport, Irondequoit, Brighton and Victor.
On Thursday there were eight games played and there were more mismatches, but the Pal-Mac at Marcus Whitman game broke that mold with a double overtime win for the Wildcats. The Wildcats scored at 7:54 in the last quarter giving them a two-goal lead but on the next faceoff Quinn Nolan scored from the draw and less than two minutes later he scored again to tie the game at 6-6. In the first overtime both teams had control of an offensive set, but although Marcus Whitman did not get a shot on cage, Pal-Mac did and Wildcat senior goalie Robert Craine (10s/6ga=63% in 56 mins) made a big save. The game progressed to the second overtime where senior midfielder Aidan Royston scored the game winner for the Wildcats at 1:26.
The score was 5-4 at the half in favor of Newark and after adding another five goals in the second half the Reds defeated Midlakes-Red Jacket 10-5. Other winners were Aquinas, Geneva, Wayne, Penn Yan, Livonia-Avon and Greece.
On Friday, Pittsford scored the last three goals in the game to beat Brighton with a goal by James Cook with 2:44 left in regulation. In a game that was a lot closer than it sounds, Rush-Henrietta scored seven unanswered fourth quarter goals to defeat Brockport 15-6. Gates Chili broke a 4-4 halftime score to beat East United-Eastridge 8-5. Other winners were Thomas, Rush-Henrietta, Mynderse, McQuaid Jesuit, Victor, Canandaigua and Churchville-Chili.
