Both of Christian Brothers Academy’s basketball teams were winless. Both saw opportunities to get rid of that designation against East Syracuse-Minoa, and both would do so.
Seven late pins mark victory in Laker duel
In recent years, the Skaneateles wrestling team had to take a back seat to those other Lakers from Cazenovia, at least when they met face-to-face. But all of that changed Tuesday night, when Skaneateles used a string of eight consecutive victories, seven of them pins, to come from behind and knock off Cazenovia 49-30.
Benedetti makes 44 saves in 5-1 defeat to Spartans
Among the 10 teams in Section III Division II ice hockey, Cazenovia was the only one without a defeat through two weeks of the regular season. All of that changed, though, in Tuesday night’s game against New Hartford at the Morrisville State IcePlex. Struggling from the start, the Lakers never really got comfortable and took a 5-1 loss to the Spartans.
Five Warriors players score in double figures
Liverpool's boys basketball team is quickly finding out that it has all sorts of ways to hurt an opponent - as rival Cicero-North Syracuse would find out in Tuesday night's renewal of their long-simmering neighborhood rivalry. From Caleb Taylor's first-half surge to Joe Kenney's well-timed outburst midway through the second half, the Warriors got what it needed to defeat the host Northstars 77-63.
Ross scores eight in fourth quarter, makes key late steal
Right to the last possession, the Westhill and West Genesee girls basketball team made Monday night's neighborhood clash a memorable one. Not until the Wildcats were unable to get off a shot in the waning seconds were the Warriors able to escape and preserve a 58-56 victory in the first of two regular-season meetings.
Liverpool tests itself against country's best teams

Far from home, the Liverpool boys basketball team’s journey through the 2013-14 season started, with every intention to join the short list of Section III Class AA title contenders.
C-NS starts 2-1, is second at Oneonta Tournament
This is the part of the story where the Cicero-North Syracuse girls basketball team, after soaking in continual championship glory, starts to make its way back to Earth, making Section III Class AA competition a bit closer. And that part might end up true – except that the Northstars have no intention of surrendering any bit of its power, even as new players emerge in the spotlight.
Warriors recover quickly from opening loss to B'ville
After a hiccup at the start, the Liverpool ice hockey team got a valuable tournament title at Ontario Bay to wrap up a productive opening week of the 2013-14 season.
Syracuse side beats B'ville, Oswego, awaits WG clash
A season ago, the Solvay ice hockey program that used to call the State Fair Coliseum home merged with the Corcoran program, forming the Syracuse Cougars.

Brothers looking for offense outside Russo, Lambert
Good players are on hand for the Christian Brothers Academy boys basketball in the 2013-14 season. It’s just a matter of whether the top talent gets enough help to make the Brothers a serious Class AA title contender.
J-D boys looking for return to championship form
Accustomed to championships, both of the Section III and state variety, fans of the Jamesville-DeWitt boys basketball had to find the 2011-12 season quite jarring. Instead of total domination, the Red Rams were, by its high standards, quite ordinary, barely staying above the .500 mark and falling early in the Section III Class A playoffs – though it came at the hands of powerful Bishop Ludden, who did reach the state final four in Glens Falls.
F-M has opening split, falls to West Genesee
Much of the core unit that produced back-to-back Section III Class A championships for the Jamesville-DeWitt girls basketball team has now left the scene. Yet even without the likes of Cydney Goodrum, Kayleigh Cavanaugh, Arriell Mussi and Taylor Fallon, the Red Rams are still bent on gaining a sectional three-peat and, perhaps, doing much better, perhaps to the tune of a state final four appearance in Troy in mid-March.
Cobras cap strong start with rout over ESM
