Monds scores with 10 seconds left on controversial tally
Jayanna Monds was offsides by several yards, as far as the Cazenovia girls soccer team was concerned. Westhill, on the other hand, thought that Monds had perfectly timed her run. The only thing that matters was that no whistle was blown.

Red Rams survive Homer in OT, rout Mexico
Sixteen games for the Jamesville-DeWitt girls soccer team – and 16 victories, without a blemish.

MPH boys shut out Cobras; girls Trojans reach sectionals
For the second season in a row, the Bishop Grimes girls soccer team finds itself undefeated and a consensus favorite going into the Section III Class C playoffs.
