CBA soccer ousted in state semifinals

Try as it could, CBA could not tie it back up, and with 7:37 left, Byram Hills sealed it when Chris Riley intercepted a would-be CBA pass and fired the shot past Krisch.

A day later, Byram Hills would drop the state Class A final to Rochester Aquinas, 1-0 -- ironic, since CBA lost to Aquinas the last time it made a state title game six years ago.

Now, after a 22-1-1 campaign that included this venture to Oneonta, head coach Joe Papaleo will have to deal with the departure of seniors like Krisch, White, Kenville, Brian Messe, Colin Price and Zack Palmieri.

Both Agbossoumonde brothers could return in 2007, as could L.J. Papaleo and Ashenburg, forming the core of another title contender.
