Hornets also rout Central Square, move to 3-2
A 1-2 start is not what the Fayetteville-Manlius boys lacrosse team is accustomed to, and early this week it had a chance to quickly put defeats to Cicero-North Syracuse and West Genesee aside and find its winning form again.
Petrelli has three goals; Wildcat goalie stops 16 of 21 shots
At this early point in the season, the Baldwinsville boys lacrosse team’s biggest issue is an inability to find the net when doing so could lead to some big victories. The Bees managed just five goals (one in the second half) during a 13-5 defeat to reigning state Class C champion Cazenovia on April 5, and those struggles continued Tuesday night, at West Genesee, where plenty of opportunities were missed in an 8-5 defeat to the Wildcats.

Ryan dominates first half; teammates take over later
Tiffany Ryan got the Cicero-North Syracuse girls lacrosse team moving toward a bit of redemption against the Baldwinsville side that kept them from the Section III Class A title a season ago. Just as importantly, the rest of the Northstars jumped in to help out and by doing so, it defeated the Bees 13-6 Tuesday night at Onondaga Community College's Murphy Field.
Marcellus prevails at Liverpool; Westhill goes 2-0
Competition at the top of the OHSL Liberty division in boys lacrosse is bound to be fierce, as Marcellus quickly found out.

Ludden/Grimes debuts with rout over Clinton
Within hours of each other last Tuesday night, the Marcellus and Westhill girls lacrosse team, playing important early-season contests, met with wildly varying degrees of success.
Liverpool gets first win over Oswego, falls to B'ville
Even with all that it accomplished a season ago – especially ending West Genesee’s six-year Section III Class A championship reign – the Cicero-North Syracuse girls lacrosse team did not get the ending it wanted.
Lakers knock off defending state Class B champs in 18-6 romp
What was already a memorable weekend for the Skaneateles girls lacrosse program was made more so after it won big in a showdown of local powerhouses. On Friday afternoon, six different seniors signed their college letters on intent. Then, on Saturday night, Skaneateles took to the field at Hyatt Stadium to face reigning state Class B champion Christian Brothers Academy.
Lakers have 3-0 week; girls take loss to Westhill
Cold winds, cold temperatures and various forms of precipitation did not keep the Cazenovia boys lacrosse team from another impressive conquest. The Lakers faced perennial Class A contender Baldwinsville Saturday morning at Cazenovia College’s Christakos Field, starting and finishing fast and delivering a 13-5 victory over the Bees.
VanDeusen scores four goals, including game-winner
No championship, or anything close to it, was earned Friday night when the East Syracuse-Minoa boys lacrosse team defeated Jamesville-DeWitt 11-10 on a wet and windy Friday night at Spartan Stadium. It only felt that way to the giddy ESM players, who swarmed goalie Alec Miller near his cage moments after the defense stopped the Red Rams from forcing overtime in the waning seconds of regulation.
Wolcik holds Northstars in check as fourth-inning runs prove enough
Most of the time in recent years, the Baldwinsville softball team found that trying to catch up to the likes of Cicero-North Syracuse was a futile exercise. Just competing with them was a victory unto itself, since scoring more runs than the Northstars appeared impossible.
Fourth-quarter rally pushes Lakers past Lancers, 10-8
It took the challenge of an old rival, and the danger of falling too far behind early in the campaign, but at just the right moment the Skaneateles boys lacrosse team found something special.
C-NS takes over in fourth quarter against tiring Warriors
From last season's side that made it to the Section III Class A semifinals, head coach Mike Felice and his Liverpool boys lacrosse team lost eight senior starters. On this year’s roster, there are only two seniors and 18 total players. Yet for 24 minutes Thursday night at LHS Stadium, the Warriors threw all it had at undefeated Cicero-North Syracuse, and led the Northstars for most of the first half and a large portion of the third quarter.
First encounter since sectional sees WG prevail again
The last time they were together, West Genesee's boys lacrosse team was celebrating yet another Section III Class A championship on the Carrier Dome turf while, on that same field, Fayetteville-Manlius dealt with the heartbreak of yet another opportunity that slipped away.
Walsh strikes out 13 in six innings of 2014 debut
With a Section III Class B championship that it badly wants to reclaim, the Westhill baseball team got started on another spring of high expectations. At the heart of those expectations is pitching ace Sam Walsh, who proved quite impressive in Wednesday afternoon's season opener against Marcellus, throwing six innings and only allowing one hit in a 5-2 victory over the Mustangs.
