Leading off today:
Cale Donegan cashed in a man-up goal with 58 seconds left in overtime
Saturday to give Corning an 11-10 victory over Fayetteville-Manlius in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association boys Class A lacrosse quarterfinals.
Corning tied the game with 1:17 left in regulation on a Jake McNaney goal. Hawks goalie Garrett Lazore stopped the Hornets' only shot in overtime before Donegan's deciding goal advanced Corning to a Wednesday semifinal vs. Victor, the 2015 state champ in Class B.
Corning overcame a 9-6 deficit in the final 12 minutes by out-shooting the Hornets 13-2. The Hawks got goals from Devon Sullivan, Aidan Olmstead and Cale Donegan to tie the game 9-9 with 6:23 left in regulation. F-M went up 10-9 with 1:47 left on a James Rettinger goal, but McNaney's goal 30 seconds later forced overtime.
"These kids just find a way," Corning coach Chris Hogue told The Leader. "They make big plays when they have to. They're a great group to watch."
More Class A lacrosse: Ward Melville defeated Syosset 9-5 to capture its 17th Long Island title. The Patriots and goalie D.J. Kellerman held the Braves to their lowest goal total since 2014.
"It's a great defense," said senior defender John Day told Newsday. "We play well together. D.J. played out of his mind today and we just came together as a group."
Ward Melville took leads of 4-0 and 9-3 en route to advancing.
CSH advances: Cold Spring Harbor jumped out to a six-goal lead and then held on for an 8-5 win against Babylon in the Class C quarterfinals.
Sophomore attacker Kevin Winkoff scored three times in the first half to help build a 7-1 lead.
"I'm not really known as a star on this team," Winkoff said. "I'm more of a role player. Ninety percent of my goals are set up from other players. I'm just happy to help the team and get all the goals we need."
CSH goalie Devin Burdo made 10 saves to help advance his team to Wednesday's semifinals vs. Pleasantville.
"We're not settling for anything less," Winkoff said. "This team isn't satisfied with just the Long Island championship. We want to win it all."
Rematch ahead: Cazenovia surrendered two early goals but shut out Maine-Endwell for three quarters and scored a 16-3 win in the Class C quarterfinals. Jake Stowell scored four goals, Cole Willard had three (along with three assists) and Thomas Bragg, Jake Lewis, Derek White and John Williams tallied twice apiece for the Lakers.
The Lakers, who have played in three straight state Class C finals (losing the last two) are heading for their fourth consecutive semifinal against Penn Yan.
Penn Yan moved into the semifinals with a 17-6 win over Akron, scoring the final six goals of the first half for an 11-3 advantage. Sean Emerson paced Penn Yan with half a dozen goals, Craig Gerhardt scored five and Austin Fingar added four.
Cazenovia has ended Penn Yan's season in the semifinals three years running.
"The first thing I'll tell these kids is this is a different team, and they have a different team," said Mustangs coach Brian Hobart. "Kids come, kids go, and it's us against them in 2016, this group against that group."
