Saturday: Both Class B Winners Win in Overtime

With the semifinals concluded, the teams are set for the 2016 Section Five Championships. Victor will play Pittsford in Class A, Thomas will play Canandaigua in Class B and Penn Yan will play Aquinas in Class C. The Class C semifinals turned out to be mismatches with Penn Yan defeating Gananda 19-7 and Aquinas beating Wayne 14-1. It was quite a different story in the Class B semis as both winning teams won in overtime. Of interest is that neither winning team led during regulation and both teams won their game with a man up goal.

The newly updated tournament brackets can be found on the Tournament Page or Class A - Class B - Class C.

--  SPORTSFIVE REPORT: Canandaigua fought back from a 10-5 deficit at the end of the third quarter to force overtime and then won 12-11 over previously undefeated Churchville-Chili. The Braves never led and only had the game tied twice (1-1 and 11-11). They scored when it mattered, in sudden death overtime, to secure the win. The Saints took control of the game for three quarters before the Braves fought back in the fourth. As the Braves got closer and closer to a tie game, they became more amped up and the Saints had more trouble staying in the lead.

The first three quarters belonged to the Saints as they scored the opening goal and three of the first four to lead 3-1 after 12 minutes. Many of their earlier goals were results of quick passes. The first was scored with Corey Yunker assisting Jacob Buck after a series of three passed and a look inside to the crease. Canandaigua tied the game for the first of only two times with a fast-break goal by Coron Broomfield. The Saints scored the next two with rapid passing. The first was Jason Tebo assisting AJ Soto and the second was Buck assisting Yunker.

Both teams added two goals in the second quarter. Tebo and Buck scored unassisted goal for the Saints. Connor McClain scored with a high drive from behind the cage for the Braves. Devin Andrews scored the first of his 5g-1a with another drive from behind the cage. The Saints led 5-3 at the half. A major success for the Saints was goalie Matt Cobb. He finished with 21 saves and nearly secured the win for the Saints. He had three strong quarters and finished at 64% against a post-season tested Braves.

Churchville vs CanandaiguaThe Saints pulled away in the third quarter and looked good to secure the win. They added five and held Canandaigua to only two. The major turning point in the final quarter came when the Saints led by 3 (11-8) with just under four minutes on the clock. They were man-down and stopped the extra-man opportunity for the Braves and then cleared the ball up field. Instead of running out the penalty, they forced a shot that was saved by Brandon Moore (8 saves on the game). The ball was cleared and a goal was scored on fast-break (still man-up). On the ensuing face-off the Braves won and got another fast-break goal. In a span of less than one minute the Saints had lost the ball, and their three goal lead was cut to only one.

The Braves forced overtime with 0:38 on the clock and Andrews scored his fifth goal with an outside shot from the left flat. Neither team could secure the win in the final thirty seconds. Churchville-Chili won the final face-off and had a timeout with 0:20 remaining; however, they could not convert. In overtime, Canandaigua won the draw and had the first shot at the cage. After a penalty, left Churchville-Chili man-down. Canandaigua scored the game winning with Johnny DelForte scoring from an inside feed from Carson Greene.

Canandaigua was the first team in the Class B tournament to defeat a higher seed and the #4 seed will move on the finals to face #2 seeded Webster Thomas, who also won in overtime.
