Leading off today:
Senior Alejandro Callejas' first varsity goal for the Brentwood boys soccer team was a big one.
Callejas converted a pass from Jefferson Portillo midway through the second half, and it proved to be the game-winner Monday as the Indians, ranked 12th in the state in Class AA by the NYSSWA, edged defending NYSPHSAA champion and ninth-ranked Commack 3-2.
"Oh my God! I couldn't believe it at first. I thought they would call a foul or something," Callejas told Newsday. "It bounced at my feet and I just tried to get it off quickly because their goalie is great and I didn't want to give him time."
Rayneri Ruiz and Kevin Trejo also scored for Brentwood. Callejas' winner came after Commack's Anthony Izzo tied the game at 2-2 about 10 minutes into the second half.
"A typical Brentwood-Commack game," Indians coach Ron Eden said. "They are bigger and better when the ball is in the air. We are quicker and in the second half we put the ball on the ground and played our game."
More boys soccer: Canisius (6-2-2) pulled off a 2-1 upset of St. Joe's (9-1) in a clash of two of Western New York's better teams. The Crusaders broke a six-game losing streak to their Monsignor Martin Association rival.
Max Montante scored the game winner off a corner kick with four minutes left in regulation.
An end to the futility: It had been so long since the team's last victory that only senior Cole Douglas knew first-hand what it was like for the Little Falls boys soccer team to leave the field with a victory.
Senior Cole Douglas, who was a freshman goalie the last time Little Falls won, scored the go-ahead goal with 4:46 left and the Mounties snapped a 42-game winless streak by edging Westmoreland 4-3 at home.
Kellan Roorda scored to tie the game at 2-2 and the Mounties took a lead for the first time when Douglas headed in a pass from Roorda. Westmoreland ()-6) tied in the 68th minute before Douglas won the ball off a Westmoreland goal kick, evaded a defender and fired a low shot into the net.
Until a Sept. 8 tie vs. Frankfort-Schuyler on Sept. 8. Little Falls hadn't earned so much as a tie since a tournament at Waterville in 2013 -- a 31-game losing streak. The Mounties had last won in Little Falls on Sept. 29, 2010.
Girls soccer: Grand Island broke a scoreless tie with three second-half goals and blanked Niagara-Wheatfield 3-0 in a girls soccer game between two top Section 6 teams.
Grand Island is ranked seventh in the state in Class A. Niagara-Wheatfield is 17th in Class AA.
Madisyn Pezzino scored twice to raise her total to 26 goals through eight games. She connected 47 times as a sophomore in 2014.
"She's just one of the hardest working players that I have ever coached," Grand Island coach Dave Bowman told the Niagara Gazette. "The beautiful thing is everybody sees how hard she works on the field but day after day she works just as hard in practice. Then when she gets out here it all comes out and she just refuses to go away."
Queen of the hill: Less than a week after recording career goal No. 100, Makenzie Wooldridge became Addison's career leader in girls soccer with her 105th goal. A hat trick in the 6-2 win over Jasper-Troupsburg, pushed Wooldridge past former teammate Kelly DuVall's previous mark of 104 goals.
Milestone: Williamsville South swept Williamsville East in girls volleyball for coach Thom Knab's 300th career win.
