Leading off today:
Eric Stewart scored 2:39 into overtime to give Calhoun a 3-2 victory
over Brentwood in the NYSPHSAA boys soccer quarterfinals Sunday, delivering the Colts their first Long Island title since 1975.
Stewart cashed in a pass from sophomore Alex Sipos, who scored the game's first goal midway through the first half. Stewart had put Calhoun ahead again in the 73rd minute, but Brentwood forced overtime with Roberto Ventura's second goal four minutes later.
"We kept our composure, kept our heads up and got it done in overtime," Stewart said. "It was back and forth the whole game, but we just stuck with it."
The Colts have won three of their four postseason games in overtime.
Amityville advances: In a familiar postseason story, the teams battled through 110 scoreless minutes and determined who would advance via penalty kicks. The ending this time, though, was unexpected.
Seventh-grader Juan Ponce converted in the eighth round, giving Amityville a 6-5 decision over Glen Cove in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class A quarterfinals.
"I was very nervous," said Ponce, a ball boy for the team a year ago. "I put the ball down and didn't think."
Prior to Ponce's heroics, Amityville senior goalkeeper Tim Hermann made three saves during the shootout.
Chaminade wins: Chaminade defeated St. Anthony's 2-1 on senior Matt Vowinkel's second goal of the game in the 104th minute to give the Flyers their second straight Nassau-Suffolk CHSAA boys soccer title.
The Hofstra recruit scored the game-winner in the title game vs. St. Anthony's at Adelphi University for the second year in a row.
"As much as I would've wanted it last year," Vowinkel said. "It's 10 times as special this year because it's my senior year."
Stellar defense: North Eastham (Mass.) Nauset Regional improved to 19-0 on Sunday with a 5-0 win over Canton. Nauset has outscored its opponents 100-0 for the season.
"After umpteen games of not letting up a goal, that became our biggest goal of the year as a team," junior midfielder James McCully told The Boston Globe. "It's something we really hope to continue. It'd be a pretty awesome achievement."
Lowville beats No. 1: Lowville stopped top-ranked General Brown three times inside its 10-yard line to defeat the Lions 22-6 for the Section 3 Class C football championship at the Carrier Dome.
It's the third sectional football title for Lowville overall and the first since 1998.
