Oh, what a day for lacrosse around the state.
For starters, there were a pair of overtime games between state-ranked teams.
A matchup of undefeated Section 5 teams lived up to expectations as Victor defeated Pittsford 10-9 in overtime Thursday. Drew Collins scored the game-winner for Victor, which trailed 5-3 at the half.
Mike DeMarco led the Blue Devils with three goals, Ryan Maloney added two goals and three assists, and Jamie Trimboli added two goals and an assist. Brandon Barker and Owen Smith led Pittsford with three goals apiece.
Pittsford is ranked fourth in the state in Class A and Victor is No. 2 in Class B.
In a clash of CHSAA Class A powers that also went to overtime, 10th-ranked St. Anthony's edged No. 9 Chaminade 9-8 as Mike Laviano fed teammate Eamon Campbell in the slot for the winning goal.
Chaminade had rallied from three goals down in the final 1:58 of regulation to tie.
"Instant classic," St. Anthony's coach Keith Wieczorek told Newsday. "You can't give that team an inch. That comeback was absurd. That's a proud program."
St. Anthony's had lost to Chaminade 11-10 on April 15.
"It's always down to one goal when it's Chaminade and St. Anthony's," said Laviano, who had a goal and two assists.
