F-M topples J-D in girls soccer tourney final

Less than five minutes later, though, Deveraux rushed in and fed West for a goal to get J-D on the board. Hartzheim answered in the 25th minute, and the Hornets took a 3-1 advantage to the break.

Each side slowed down a bit in the second half, but J-D threatened again when Deveraux, continually dribbling her way past befuddled defenders, found Elbers for a goal in the 59th minutes that made it 3-2.

Refusing to pack it in, F-M stayed aggressive enough in the homestretch, which paid off when Cappozi's beautiful header off a feed from Davin clinched the outcome with 1:49 left.

In other Saturday girls action, Bishop Grimes opened by beating General Brown 4-0, as Donna Comins scored twice and Samantha Schaefer earned two assists. Alana Hurley and Emma Kelley notched goals of their own.

Exiting the tournament 2-0, F-M begins CNY Counties League play Wednesday against West Genesee at Swan Pond, then gets a huge test Friday when defending Class AA champion Cicero-North Syracuse shows up. J-D gets home games against three neighborhood rivals -- CBA, East Syracuse-Minoa and Chittenango -- in a span of seven days, starting on Wednesday afternoon.
