Field hockey Lakers advance to Class C final

Caz rolls to 4-0 semifinal win over Port Byron

— During much of the second half, the Lakers relied on its defense, led by Shephard, Holly Gamlen, Maddy Langley and goalie Kimber Nourse, to shut the door on all of Port Byron's scoring attempts.

But it was Sarah Willard that clinched Cazenovia's latest trip to a sectional final, scoring off a scramble in front of Panthers goalie Amanda Lupo with 7:47 left to extend the lead to 3-0, and converting again three minutes later when she beat Lupo on a penalty stroke.

Cazenovia and Holland Patent will not only determine the sectional title, but also who plays the survivor of the Class D final between Morrisville-Eaton and Weedsport in the state qualifier Saturday at Rome Free Academy Stadium.
