Friday, Sept. 19, 2014: Carmel upsets No. 1 Arlington in soccer

   Leading off today: Whoa, we didn't see this one coming.

   Senior Sebastian Lopez scored all of Carmel's goals Thursday in s 3-2 boys soccer upset of Arlington, ranked No. 1 in Class AA this week by the New York State Sportswriters Association.

   Arlington had been 48-2-2 in its previous 52 games, including a NYSPHSAA championship in 2012.

   "A win like this means the Carmel boys varsity soccer team can play and compete with any high school team out there," first-year coach Keren Larkin told The Journal News after his team improved to 3-4 on the season. "It gives us confidence going forward in the season, looking to sectionals."

   More boys soccer: Paul Catarina's unassisted goal with 20 minutes left was all that the Allegany-Limestone needed to remain undefeated after a 1-0 win over Randolph.

   A-L is ranked sixth and Randolph 18th in the state in Class C this week.

   Dom Conroy made 11 saves as the Gators (7-0) handed Randolph its first loss of the season.

    • Justin Cebollero scored the winning goal on a 35-yard blast with 3:03 left in overtime as Commack, ranked 11th in Class AA, held off Sachem North 2-1.

    • Grand Island goalkeeper Justin Figler set the school record for career shutouts, earning his 22nd in an 8-0 win over North Tonawanda. Andrew Riederer, Joe Farrell and Joe Kulikowski scored twice apiece.

   Football notes: Bishop Maginn coach Joe Grasso will be seeking win No. 200 Friday at home vs. Mohonasen. Grasso began his coaching career at Vincentian Institute in 1975.

   Extra points: Jordan Robert, a key contributor as a sophomore last winter when Massena won the NYSPHSAA Division I ice hockey championship, has left to attend Gunnery Prep in Connecticut. The 5-foot-10 forward recently committed to play for Clarkson University beginning in the 2016-17 season.

   Section 10 voted last week against adding the optional 19th game in boys and girls varsity basketball for the upcoming season. Athletic directors voted 13-10 against the game, which the NYSPHSAA gave sections the option of restoring in July.

   Section 10 Athletic Coordinator Carl Normandin said budget concerns were primary reason for schools voting no.
