Rule Changes for 2016 and Beyond Announced

- The NFHS Rules Committee finished their work in July and the list of rules changes for 2016 (and later) have been approved by the FHHS Board of Directors. Four "major" changes have been announced as well as a list of "Points of Emphasis".

  • The face off rules (4-3-3) have been rewritten with new procedures which include having the official place the ball AFTER the players are down. A player cannot carry the ball in the back of the stick. "It is legal to clamp the ball with the back of the stick, but it must be moved, raked or directed immediately. Immediately is defined as within one step."
     
  • Once the ball has moved into the goal area it must remain on the offensive end of the field or it results in a turnover.
     
  • "Pull strings" (that change the depth of the pocket) are illegal and no more than one sidewall string is allowed on each sidewall.
     
  • Starting in 2018, stick head dimensions will change which it is hoped will address the ball being stuck in the crosse

The Points of Emphasis are (1) Contact to the head or neck and blind side hits, (2) Helmet fitting and NOCSE standards, (3) Halftime warm up (recommended for the last 3 minutes of the break) and (4) Insuring that helmets and other equipment be worn during warm up periods.

The Committee also recommended that coaches not teach players to block the goal when the goalkeeper is out of the crease.

The Federation has an article on the changes and the rules list has been published for review. The NYSPHSAA will review the changes and normally adopts the changes for play in New York.

The book for Manhasset:

 

--  NOTES: On the bus trip from Victor to Vestal the boys watched the movie "Miracle on Ice", the fact-based story of the U.S. Olympic hockey team that beat the Soviets in the 1980 Lake Placid games. The hockey win was far less probable than what the Victor Boys have done all year. In the last game of the 2015 scholastic season, the Blue Devils won their first New York State Championship when they defeated Manhasset of Section 8 with the score of 17-8.

Victor entered the game as the only undefeated team in New York State. They jumped out to an 8-0 lead before the Indians scored their first goal at 10:03 in the second quarter. After Manhasset switched from a man-to-man defense to a split zone, the Blue Devil onslaught was slowed down. The Indians scored four in a row taking the score to 8-4, but a four goal differential was as close as Manhasset got, even though they were relentless on ground balls and continued their aggressive "on ball" defense.

Victor's offense was stellar, with many interior feeds and several multi-pass goals. Thirteen of their eighteen goals were assisted. Manhasset had two assisted goals, and six different players shared the goals.

Victor vs ManhassetAs expected, one key to the win was the performance of the Victor face off unit who with T.D. Ierlan at the helm won 20 of 28 draws for the Blue Devils. In many cases it was the wing players that picked up ground balls that were hotly contested by the Indians. A not so expected key, however was the dramatic play of the Victor defense in front of freshman goaltender Chayse Ierlan who was credited with five saves. The long sticks consistently turned back drives by Manhasset whose leading scorer, Tyler Dunn, was held to two unassisted goals.

Junior midfielder Dan Barrow was named the game`s Most Valuable Player after scoring six goals. Junior midfielder Jamie Trimboli led the team in points with 4g-4a.

Victor becomes the third Section Five team to win a New York State Championship. Penn Yan won the Class C title in 2001 when they defeated Manhasset 9-5 (playing in Class C that year), and Canandaigua won a Class B Championship in 2009 when they beat Niskayuna 5-2.
Interestingly, both Niskayuna and Manhasset played in Championship games today. Nisky defeated West Genesee 13-10 in the Class A Championship. Cold Spring Harbor defeated Cazenovia 9-8 in the Class C game.

Penn Yan vs Caz

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT:  Cazenovia scored four of the first five goals to take a strong lead into their State Semi-Final match against Penn Yan. The Lakers defeated the Mustangs 9-5 and will move on to play Cold Spring Harbor this Saturday at Vestal High School. Cazenovia played a more consistent game. They showed their skill with second and third attempts at the ball. On a number of plays they lost the initial ground ball and then came at the ball even stronger to re-take possession on the second or third attempt. This held true with most statistics including face-offs, shots, and clears. Although multiple Lakers had strong games, there were stand out performances from face off midfielder Peter Burr, attackman PJ Brown and goalie Brenden Whalen. Burr, Brown and Whalen exemplified the type of play that we all hope to see.

Burr finished the game under 50%, but won a number of key face offs for the Lakers. He led his team in ground balls with six and scored 1g. Whalen finished with 10 saves (67%) including a number of point blank saves that he had no business stopping. He cleared with efficiency and was a staple for the Laker defense. Attackman PJ Brown finished with a team leading 3g-1a off of nine shots for Cazenovia.

The Lakers came out swinging and scored back to back goals to open the contest. Brown started off with a drive along the right side of GLE and put the shot over goalie Gage Ponsetti's shoulder. Ponsetti finished with six saves for the Mustangs. He had difficulty in the opening half with five goals scored before his second save. Three minutes later Jake Stowell scored his first goal with an outside shot from the right flat. Stowell finished with 2g-1a for the Lakers. Penn Yan scored their first goal with 0:39 remaining in the first quarter with an inside feed by Austin Fingar to Craig Gerhardt. Fingar finished with 2a and 10 ground balls. He took the face offs for Penn Yan and finished at 53%. Whalen seemed to have Fingar's number: He took 5 shots (the most of his team) with 4 on cage that were all saved by Whalen. Cazenovia led 2-1 after the first quarter.

They continued their pressure in the second quarter outscoring the Mustangs 4-2. Caz scored the opening two goals again in the second quarter with an outside shot from Stowell. Less than one minute later Stowell assisted Brown for his second goal. The Mustangs started a brief comeback with a dramatic goal from their keeper, Ponsetti who took the ball all the way from a save to the opposite goal. The Mustangs had difficulty throughout the contest with the ten men press from Cazenovia. Penn Yan vs CazOn the ensuing face off Fingar won the draw clean and took it up Sean Emerson. Emerson dodged his man and the slide before scoring eight seconds after Ponsetti's goal. Burr stopped the momentum on the next draw winning that face off clean and taking it straight to the cage to keep Cazenovia ahead 5-3. The play continued back and forth for the next seven minutes before the Lakers scored the final goal of the quarter with an impressive feed from Brown to attackman Jake Lewis. The Lakers led 6-3 at halftime.

Each team added one goal in the third quarter as Cazenovia began to slow the ball down and Penn Yan attempted to get back in the game.

The Wildcats scored the next two goals to tie the game. Both goals came from drives from behind the cage. Nick Cunningham scored the opening goal and Mike Fletcher scored the second goal.

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.
