Leading off today:
Olivia Navaroli atoned for a miss moments earlier by intercepting a clear and firing home the winning goal 1:37 into overtime as Skaneateles edged Bronxville
11-10 in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association girls Class C lacrosse semifinals Friday.
Navaroli had missed from the free possession earlier in the extra period.
"I got stopped and I was so frustrated and I thought. 'I have to get this back,'" Navaroli told The Citizen. "I saw the look in the eyes that she was going to clear it, so I went full force toward it."
Skaneateles senior Molly Newton registered two goals and three assists, including firing home the tying score with :19.3 to go in regulation. Navaroli and Hannah Logan each finished with two goals and one assist.
The Lakers advanced to a Saturday final vs. Mount Sinai, which rolled past Honeoye Falls-Lima 10-3. The teams met in the finals in 2013 and the semifinals last year, with Mount Sinai wining both.
"We haven't really thought about it too much, but when we heard their name over the speakers, we were pumped," Lakers co-captain Tate Green said.
Five different players scored first-half goals for Mount Sinai, and then Meaghan Tyrrell completed her hat trick with two more tallies in the second half vs. HF-L.
Class B lacrosse: Casey Duff's 200th career goal was more than just a milestone. It came with 1:16 left in overtime and defeated Watertown 10-9, sending Yorktown to the NYSPHSAA final.
The senior midfielder cut to the cage from the left wing, slid past a defender and scored to salvage the victory after Yorktown surrendered a five-goal lead with 10 minutes to play.
"Their team was doing a great job of defending us and staying tight on cutters and no one was open," Duff told The Journal News after finishing with two goals and two assists. "I just tried to go because we needed it.”
The Huskers led 5-2 at halftime and went up 9-4 after a goal from Michelle Seger with 13:15 left in the second half. Watertown then scored five unanswered goals, with Olivia Miles knotting the score off an 8-meter free position with :24 to go in regulation.
In its previous game, Yorktown beat Niskayuna, also by a 10-9 count and also in OT.
Yorktown's final will be vs. Garden City. The 13-time state champs eliminated Victor 15-11.
Michaela Bruno and Kerry Defliese each registered three goals and an assist and Brooke McDaid added a goal and four assists for Garden City.
Garden City scored three goals in less than two minutes to take a 14-8 lead early in the second half behind Defliese, Katie Muldoon and Celia Concannon. Victor answered with three straight goals by Emily Hawryschuk before the Trojans clamped down.
Class A lacrosse: Pittsford, a semifinalist five times in the past seven years, will play in its second final thanks to an 11-5 triumph over West Islip. Senior Megan Plain, a Virginia recruit who missed the end of last year's Section 5 and NYSPHSAA tournaments with an injury, led the Panthers with four goals, and Maddie Miller had three goals and four assists.
