Wheeler didn’t work alone, though, as Tom McNaney threw in four goals. Mike McNaney and Morgan Reilly also scored, with Kevin Hutchings adding an assist.
Marcellus now gets ready for a Class C semifinal against no. 2 seed Homer Saturday at Cicero-North Syracuse's Bragman Stadium. The Trojans beat Skaneateles 9-3 in its quarterfinal.
Westhill, the no. 8 seed in Class C, took its shot at top seed and defending state champion Cazenovia in its quarterfinal game, and saw its season end with a 16-5 defeat to the Lakers.
Looking to avenge a 12-5 defeat to Cazenovia from earlier this month, Westhill had it going for a brief while, staying within 4-2 at the end of the first quarter.
However, the Lakers erased whatever chances the Warriors had with a 9-2 blitz through the second quarter, which made it 14-4 at the break. Matt Donovan and Connor Cannizzaro each had five goals for Cazenovia as Brad Nardella added four goals.
In defeat, the Warriors, whose season finished with a mark of 10-8, had Ryan Suddaby (three goals) and Austin Webb (two goals) account for all of the offense. Owen Nicola and Richie Easterly earned assists.
