Looking Back

Penfield at StormThere were four games played on Monday with Thomas winning the last half of their game with Wayne, which was halted earlier in the season. Joe Russo scored four goals in the Titan's 9-6 win. Gananda trailed for nearly the entire contest before scoring the final goal of the game to defeat Newark 6-5. In a game of streaks, Bloomfield-Honeoye scored the final three goals of the game to defeat Eastridge 12-10. Bath won their game (13-8) with HF-L 

Tuesday was one of the busiest days thus far this season with sixteen games played, all against section five opponents. Most were mismatches but there were some close ones. McQuaid Jesuit won a 5-4 victory from Penn Yan. McQuaid senior midfielder Ryan McEvily scored the deciding goal with 40 seconds to go in the third quarter. The fourth quarter was scoreless as both defenses and goalies were outstanding. Webster Schroeder fought back from a four-goal deficit to defeat Churchville-Chili 9-8 in the first overtime period. The Warriors scored the final five goals for the win and held the Saints scoreless for 13 minutes.
