Furious comeback sends soccer Hornets past B'ville

Fired up by that tying goal, F-M turned back a B'ville corner kick, then sent the ball down the right sideline as the clock neared the two-minute mark. The Bees were caught out of position as several Hornets came forward - including Mahr. Taking a crisp pass from Anthony Restante, Mahr crushed a shot that Bono had no chance of stopping for the game-winner.

While all this was going on, the F-M girls soccer team went to Baldwinsville to play a Bees squad that had ascended to the top of the state AA rankings.

The Hornets played hard, but fell to the Bees 2-0 in a game where both goals came in the first half. Claire Monnat and Jackie Firenze scored them, and while Nina Quigley turned everything else away and finished with 10 saves, F-M could not break through despite 12 shots on the net.

Both F-M teams won Saturday over Rome Free Academy. The girls Hornets drubbed the Black Knights 9-1 at Swan Pond as Alison Baynes notched a three-goal hat trick, plus an assist.

Cheyenne Hall had a goal and two assists as Marri Ryu, Michaela Steadman and Rebecca Bowyer each got one goal and one assist. Alexis Muraco and Brenna Kincaid contributed goals, too, as Mollie Caputo and Charlotte Beers got credit for assists.

Out at RFA Stadium, the boys Hornets won 5-1 as Ward used two goals and one assist to lead the way. Haile Marr had one goal and one assist as Restante and Kris Alestalo also scored. Tyler Forbes, Alex Baynes and Kyle Lunney found their way to the assist column.
