C-NS and Nottingham played through most of the first half 0-0. Just when it looked like the Bulldogs would escape to the halftime break still on even terms, though, Bryan Bausinger put home a goal with one second showing on the clock.
Stunned by that, Nottingham could not recover, not able to produce many chances against a stingy Northstars defense. Morgan Miller only had to make five saves.
As that went on, Liverpool, who at no. 11 sat eight spots above no. 19 C-NS in the latest state Class AA poll, played visiting Pittsford Mendon (Section V) to a 0-0 draw.
For the most part, the Warriors avoided injury trouble, but got a severe challenge as Pittsford Mendon took more shots through the 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime. However, Cody Peck turned them all away, recording 10 saves to preserve the deadlock.
