What's Hot on SportsFive.NET

2014It's hard to believe, but another season is starting and at the start of the season there are 315 games scheduled for Varsity play in 2015.

During the summer, the National Federation Rules Committee held their annual meetings and came up with some new rule changes for the 2015 season. The New York State Lacrosse Committees will need to ratify the changes (and they normally do so) before we get to March 2015. It was a "quiet year" for the committee with the most "dramatic", perhaps relating to the string of sticks. That rule may be delayed for a while. Another rules change allows a restart in the defensive end to be inside the goals area instead of in the "ally" outside of the goal area.

At this start of the season over eighty players have made college commitments including forty-seven seniors and twenty-eight juniors. More seniors will make decisions as the spring progresses.

Section Five Lacrosse will , once again be the home for much of the New York State Tournament as we host the Western Regional (quarter finals) and the Upstate Championships (semi finals) before the champions are crowned in Vestal (Section Four) on June 6th. For the whole tournament schedule from start to finish, check out the Tournaments Page.

For those still living the glory days of last season, a great deal of information can be found in the 2014 wrap up story.

--  Special The first overtime game of the year saw Penfield defeat Irondequoit 6-5. The Patriots trailed for a significant portion of the game before coming back in the third quarter to take their first lead with 16 minutes remaining in the game. The Eagles looked very strong in the first half with their offense controlling most of the ball time. After the halftime break, the Patriots took control and scored four goals, three of which were during man up play.

The first quarter was dominated by Irondequoit. The Patriots won the opening face off with Cole Guest picking up the ground ball from the wing line. The Eagles immediately pressured the ball with Daniel Harris stripping the ball and Justin Sale picking it up. The Eagles took the ball into the offensive zone and patiently waited for an opening. They scored their first goal with an unassisted drive from Andrew Knope. Knope finished with the first two goals of the contest (both unassisted). The Eagles kept up the pressure on the draw and controlled possession for nearly the entire quarter. The Patriots only had a single shot in the entire quarter (a save for Eagles goalie Max Eismann). Penalties were a deciding factor throughout the game. The third Irondequoit goal was scored during man-up with Ian Eckert scoring an unassisted goal. The Eagles ended the first quarter with a solid 3-0 lead.

Penfield at IrondequoitThey continued the pressure in the second quarter. Max Spaan scored the first goal for the Patriots with 6:59 remaining in the half. He finished with a team leading 13 shots (out of a total of 27). Spaan finished with seven shots on cage and contributed five of Eismann's six saves. Eismann finished at 50% for the Eagles. Trevor Carney added the lone Eagle goal of the second quarter to keep a 3 goal lead (4-1) going into halftime.

In the third quarter the Eagles seemed less focused. They had two penalties in the third quarter that allowed Penfield to score three goals and tie the game 4-4. Glenn Roschetzky (assisted by Carter Jordan), Brandon Buse (unassisted) and Spaan (assisted by Jordan) tied the game with 4:25 remaining. An unassisted goal from Jordan gave the Patriots their first lead of the game. The third quarter ended with Penfield leading 5-4.

In the fourth quarter the Eagles kept the game close and scored the tying goal with 3:48 remaining. Daniel Doktor scored his lone goal with an assist from Carney. Both team had attempts in the final four minutes but neither could convert a goal and game was forced into overtime. The Eagles won the final draw and had the first shot at the goal. Their patience, which was so clearly dominant in the first half was lacking in overtime as they had two chances at offense and did not get a shot off either time.

The Patriots first attempt at offense did not result in a goal. However, with 0:55 left the Eagles were assessed another penalty. The Patriots next shot at the goal was the game winning goal. Defenseman Ethan Parks scored the game winning goal with an assist from Jordan. Parks, who plays man-up offense with his long stick, received a pass from Jordan on the outside top left and took a hard low shot past Eismann for the win.

In the cage for Penfield, Willie Klan finished with 11 saves (69%) and kept the Patriots in the game. James Stoler finished with 60% at the face-off. LSM Adam Witscheber finished with a team leading four ground balls for the Patriots. Irondequoit's John Lombardi finished 3/4 at the face-off draw. Carney and Ben Lamendola finished with three ground balls each to lead the Eagles.

Newark Team Goes Bald for Teammate Nate Barnes

- Playing on a team is often much more than playing for wins and losses. On the good teams, the relationships that are forged and friendships that are often life-long are among the best parts of athletics.

So, when a member of the team was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, his teammates wanted to do something to say, "we are all a part of a team". Newark twin seniors Nate and Zach Barnes started playing lacrosse in seventh grade. After Nate stopped playing due to poor health in their sophomore year, Zach continued to play and Nate continued to support his brother. Nate was named an honorary Captain for the 2015 season.

There are seventeen seniors on the Newark team this year and they led an initiative to get their teammates to shave their heads in support of Nate. A number of staff members and others joined the Varsity.

Nate is currently in New York City, undergoing treatment. When Nate was shown pictures and told about the support, he said, with a smile, "They almost look as good as me!"

Below are pictures of the Varsity seniors (holding Nate) and the team (and Head Coach Matt Groot) with shaved heads.

NYS MapCollege Decisions

Many lacrosse players have made the decision to combine their love of the game with post high school education and will be moving on to play at the college level. Some made verbal commitments long ago and some waited until the spring or summer to make their decision. Although some may sign contracts to play, many more simply enroll as students and play without scholarships.

Many of the players have made their decisions public and they have been published on SportsFive.NET. As the announcements move off this front page they are listed on the "Commitments Page" which are available from a button on the "Players Main Page".
