Sectionals Section B2 Oct. 22 (#5) LeRoy 3, (#4) Penn Yan 2 In the B2 quarterfinals, Penn Yan fell to season rival LeRoy in a close one-point loss. LeRoy dominated the first half, scoring one goal after 20 minutes and then two to end the first period. The Mustangs rallied in the second, scoring two runs to pull within, but were unable to equalize their chance to win. Maura Dambra, Kenna McKenzie and Abby Allen were the scorers for Leroy. PY’s comeback attempt was led by Hailey Hassos and Corinne Barden. In the nets, PY goalie Marion Wheeler made five saves while Caitlin Everett made four for Leroy. The loss dropped Penn Yan to a final record of 7-9-1 on the season, finishing 11th in the Finger Lakes. Penn Yan has four seniors graduating this year, including Morgan Andersen, Vanessa Martinez, Riley Meredith and Sienna Pettersen, but the Mustangs still have plenty of weapons in their arsenal for next year with team leader Maihue Miranda-Wiltberger (Sophomore) and Haley Hassos (Jr.), who each have three years of varsity soccer, and 8th grader Makena Mullins, who has shown great potential this season.

C1 Sectional Oct. 18 (#4) Marcus Whitman 2, (#13) East Rochester 0 As expected, the Wildcats entered Sectionals by sweeping the first round of Pool C1 with a 2-0 sweep. East Rochester put up a good fight, holding Whitman to just one-and-a-half points with both going halfway through their respective periods, and Bombers goalie Lily Chambers-Silva made 13 saves, but it wasn’t enough to save the ‘Cats. who have been a force to be reckoned with this season. Lily Morse scored Whitman’s first point on an assist from Reagan Weissinger, while Zoelle Payne scored their second off an assist from Lana Burnett. The win moved the Wildcats into the C1 quarterfinals where they faced (#5) Canisteo-Greenwood. Oct. 21 (#4) Marcus Whitman 2, (#5) Canisteo-Greenwood 1 Whitman earned its second sectional win, defeating Canisteo-Greenwood to advance to the semifinals. The Wildcats controlled the first half with Aurora Woodworth scoring twice with assists from Zoelle Payne and Raegan Weissinger. Canisteo-Greenwood fought back in the second half with a goal from Kylie Williamson, but was unable to score the equalizer, securing the win for Whitman. Wildcats goalie Sophie Snyder and Redskins goalie Brook Bird each made eight saves in the game. With the win, Whitman was set to face the tournament’s No. 1 seed, 25th-ranked Gananda. The results of this game will be printed in our next edition. Section C2 Oct 18 (#12) Cuba-Rushford/ Hinsdale 5, (#9) Dundee/ Bradford 0 The BraveScots dropped out of Sectionals early, holding five points in the first round of the Class C2 tournament. Sofia Riquelme led the Rebels with three hits. Also for CRH, Taylor Searle had a goal and an assist and Chloe Larabee added two assists. Rebels goalkeeper Tara Duvall recorded six saves in the game. With the loss, Dundee/Bradford ended their season with a final record of 8-8-1, finishing in 8th place in the Finger Lakes League. The Scots lose just two seniors to graduation, captains Tricia Edminster and Hayden Morrison, leaving them with several qualified starters and plenty of potential in 2023. Section D1 Oct 22 (#3) Naples 2, (#6) Honeoye 1 After skipping the first round of the D1 bracket, the Big Green won their first sectional game, defeating Honeoye in a close, tight game. Honeoye’s Ashley Thomas scored the first goal of the game, winning the first half for the Bulldogs, but Naples’ Mia Betrus tied the score in the second half, sending the game into overtime, where Betrus scored the winning goal. Penalties really hurt Honeoye, with the Bulldogs booked in each half and goalkeeper Mikalaya Scheele drawing a red card in extra time, giving Naples the win. Scheele made five saves while Naples goalkeeper Grace Hebding had to make 19, showing where some of the game’s frustrations may have come from. The win pits Naples against No. 2 seed Genesee Valley/Belfast. This match will be played tonight and will be reported in next week’s paper.

Ashtian Dunning came in to replace Earl later in the game, with all three of his passes finding a receiver and throwing for one TD.
