Westhill, Marcellus boys soccer get key late wins

Warriors begin Class B title defense with top seed

Golick, in particular, stood out, earning a three-goal hat trick as Tompkins managed a goal and two assists. Evan Turner also had a pair of assists as Molinari got one goal and one assist. Goals also went to Nick Matro, Andrew Harold and Victor Stasguk.

Westhill also won on Thursday, bashing Jordan-Elbridge by that same 8-0 margin, only doing the work in reverse as it scored six times in the first half.

What’s more, those eight goals came from eight different players, from BenYehuda, Etoll, Kinsella and Matt Torak to the likes of Mike Parasczak, Carter McMahon and Nick Colella.

J-E (4-12) went from there to a 2-1 defeat to Bishop Grimes in Saturday’s season finale, seeing Colby Falcone score in the first half off a feed from Russell Hines for a 1-0 edge, only to have the Cobras get second-half goals from Nick Commisso and Dar Rinker to pull it out.

Bishop Ludden, who will have a spot in the sectional Class C tournament, gained another important win last Tuesday when it turned back Bishop Grimes 3-1. Steadily, the Gaelic Knights gained a 2-1 halftime edge, overcoming a goal by the Cobras’ Richie Kane with a well-balanced attack.

Ralph Romano, Joe Spano and Tom Muller earned Ludden’s goals, with Alan Roberts and Jon Dussing picking up assists. the Gaelic Knights’ defense also did a solid job of protection as goalie Matt Hughes only had to make five saves.

Ludden did lose 6-0 to Tully on Friday, Hughes getting six saves but watching as six different Black Knights – David Johnson, Steve Schoemaker, Chris Russell, Mike Brill, Mike Habtesion and Zack Swan – picked up the six goals.

Solvay, who was still trying to get its own post-season berth as the week got underway, had a setback before facing Marcellus. In last Tuesday’s game against Phoenix, the Bearcats took a 4-2 defeat to the Firebirds.
