Eight days removed from the death of his father due to liver cancer, Welsh scored the game-winning goal with 31.3 seconds left in regulation to give the Hornets an 8-7 victory over Baldwinsville in Saturday’s Section III Class A final at the Carrier Dome.
“It’s been the most emotional week of my life,” said Welsh. “I wanted this game so bad. I know that he (his father) was watching from above.”
The Cazenovia boys lacrosse team won its fourth consecutive Section III Class C championship Saturday night at the Carrier Dome, defeating LaFayette 11-9. Now it’s safe to put the “dynasty” label on the Cazenovia boys lacrosse team.
Connor Fields (Bishop Timon) and Blaze Riorden (Fairport)were chosen as Third Team All-Americans while John Maloney (Victor) and Seth Oakes (Akwesasne) were picked as Honorable Mention. The list of All-Americans was announced on the morning of the NCAA semifinals.
Senior Kayla Treanor played in in the final game of her storied career. She recorded 11 draw controls against the Terrapins, giving her 217 this season, which is a new NCAA Division I single-season record, surpassing Robert Morris' Jessica Karwacki's 216 in 2014. Treanor recorded one point, ending her four years with 393. That total ranks second all-time at Syracuse and fourth on the NCAA Division I all-time scoring list. Her 260 goals are the highest total in program history and the sixth-highest total in Division I history.
"I feel very fortunate to have played on such a talented team, so I think that let me be able to get that record,'' Treanor said. "I played with some awesome teammates. They know how to make you look good, so it's a lot of credit to them. And then my coach (Gary Gait) for putting me in the position I am and letting me take some draws."
After the Shenendehowa boys' lacrosse team defeated Niskayuna in the Section II Class A championship back in 2011, the Silver Warriors reeled off an incredible 81 consecutive wins over Section II opponents.
Shenendehowa would make sure Niskayuna wouldn't reach 82 in Friday's title game. Behind seven goals by sophomore midfielder Matt Stucchi and 27 saves from junior goalie Anthony Tebbano, the No. 3 Plainsmen dethroned the top-seeded Silver Warriors 15-14 at Mohonasen High School.
Burnt Hills boys' lacrosse coach Tom Schwan knew Ballston Spa was poised for a big run when his Spartans built up a nine-goal lead in the third quarter of Friday's Section II Class B championship. "It's a game of runs," he said.
Schwan was right as the No. 4 Scotties got as close as 11-8 in the third quarter, but No. 3 Burnt Hills regrouped and provided an answer of its own as the Spartans captured their first sectional title since 2011, 17-9, at Mohonasen High School.
Victor vs. Webster Schroeder - Some stand-out performances throughout the game included: Ryan Maloney intercepting a pass between a defenseman and the goalie and scoring behind the back without breaking stride and long stick Patrick Barrow taking the ball coast and coast and scoring. Schroeder's first goal was scored with an impressive cross crease feed through traffic from Conor Bollin to Collin Griffin.
Pittsford vs. Penfield - After trailing 1-0, Pittsford scored four straight goals to take the lead for good. The Panthers kept up their scoring and, even though the Patriots scored late to make the score closer, they defeated Penfield 12-9. The Patriots scored the final four goals to decrease the deficit to only three goals. Pittsford`s largest lead was 12-5 at the end of the third quarters.
Victor’s move to Class A this year has created a season-long collision course with Pittsford for the Section V title. That match-up became official Friday as both advanced in their semifinal games at Webster Thomas and will face one another for the first time in a sectional final Tuesday at St. John Fisher.

Baldwinsville wanted to get off to a fast start in its sectional boys lacrosse semifinal against Syracuse tonight at Cicero-North Syracuse High School. The Bees, who didn't want to let the Cougars hang around, took care of business by racing to an 11-1 halftime lead and coasting to a 16-5 victory in a Class A semifinal.
Fayetteville-Manlius boys lacrosse coach Chris Kenneally is a graduate of West Genesee High School, so the veteran Hornets' mentor should know.
"I can tell you, except for maybe the first year of the program, nobody has ever beaten West Genesee three times in a season," Kenneally said after his Hornets did just that - in a 10-9 nail-biter today in a sectional Class A semifinal at Cicero-North Syracuse High School.
Locked in a tight game with Skaneateles at the half, Cazenovia exploded for nine third-period goals en route to a 17-5 victory in a Class C boys lacrosse semifinal tonight on the turf at East Syracuse Minoa High School.

After coming out of halftime with the first two scores to stretch their lead to five, the Skaneateles girls lacrosse team surrendered a pair of goals to get South Jefferson right back in it on Thursday. Over the next 10 minutes though, the Lakers rung off seven straight and ultimately put away the Spartans 15-8 in the Section III Class C semifinals at Liverpool High School.
It almost seems like an inevitable matchup at this point. Glens Falls coach Tim Northrop called the Class C final between his Indians and Greenwich “an annual rite of passage.” He hopes this one ends with a different result. Each of the past two Section II Boys Lacrosse Tournaments has ended with a Greenwich win over top-seeded Glens Falls.
Class C Final -Greenwich vs. Glens Falls, 3:30 p.m.
Class B Final - Ballston Spa vs. Burnt Hills, 5:30 p.m.
Class A Final - Shen vs. Niskayuna, 8 p.m.
When the final 10 seconds were called out in the Monsignor Martin girls lacrosse championship, one of the Mount Mercy players on the bench turned to a teammate and screamed loudly, “We finally get a banner!” Mount Mercy ended Mount St. Mary’s dreams of another extended title run, stunning the defending champions, 10-6, for its first championship.
Lucas Quinn was overqualified for his role a year ago in the Niskayuna boys’ lacrosse team’s attack. Fellow midfielders Aidan O’Brien and John Prendergast, 2015 seniors, were in charge of steering the Silver Warriors toward their program’s first-ever state championship. That left Quinn, a talent who committed to play for Syracuse University before he ever played a high school varsity game, to star from the shadows.
From an effort standpoint, the girls’ lacrosse teams from Guilderland and Shenendehowa both deserved 10s after their fierce and physical Section II Class A semifinal game Wednesday. The homestanding Lady Dutch got a different kind of 10 with their 10-8 victory.
Kainen Francis-Thompson converted a fast-break assist from Nick Henrie for a short-handed goal with 45 seconds left in regulation and the Massena Central boys lacrosse team made it hold up as the game-winner in an 11-10 decision over Northern Athletic Conference regular-season champion Canton Central in the Section 10 Class B/C title game on Thursday.

When asked about the head coaching openings in DI lacrosse, he said:

Drew Jenkins grew up in affluent Montclair, New Jersey. Jenkins dreamed of playing for Syracuse, but not because he grew up watching quarterback Donovan McNabb or wanted to follow in New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony’s footsteps. Jenkins wanted to play lacrosse for the Orange, a program as successful as Kentucky Wildcats basketball or Ohio State football. It is the alma mater of Jim Brown. Yes, that Jim Brown — perhaps the greatest running back of all time and widely considered the greatest player to pick up a lacrosse stick.

“I got x-rays for a broken rib and then they came up clean.

During the 2015 IMLCA convention, we invited several DI coaches to our studio to discuss topics relevant to their teams and to the national conversation. With declining attendance numbers, the Final Four has become a point of contention in the sport. Should it stay the same? Should it be changed? Should we shake up the whole playoff structure, or the whole season? There is a lot to debate, and a lot of strong points from all sides. (Video 8:22)

A sectional lacrosse title has eluded the Horseheads High School boys program for 18 years, but expectations are high for this year's team heading into the Section 4 Class B final against familiar foe Vestal.
At the head of the class, two players are scoring in unique ways for Horseheads. Ian Cook and Garrette Briggs have been dominating the opposition all season long. Together, they lead a senior class who's looking to make history and bring home a championship-something the program hasn't done in nearly 20 years.
Hilbert College head coach Rick Schunke has released the dates for the 2016 men's summer lacrosse camp. The Hawks invite boys in grades 8 through 12 to attend the week-long camp which will be held July 24 through July 28.
Syracuse attacker Halle Majorana posted a team-high six points (three goals, three assists), including the game-winning feed off a dodge in from the left side, in a 12-11 overtime win over previously unbeaten USC to send Syracuse back to the final four and earn Epoch/Lacrosse Magazine Player of the Week honors.
While Maryland has defeated Syracuse by a combined 104-74 score in the past four years – with the Orange breaking into double-digit scoring just four times – the final results do not indicate the proximity in performances between Taylor Cummings, the Terps' two-time Tewaaraton winner, and Kayla Treanor.

To help mark the 1000th game in program history, over the few weeks the LaFayette Lacrosse Alumni Association is posting excepts from an article written by Coach Carl ‘Ket’ Weist, the first lacrosse coach at LaFayette High School.
The article chronicles Coach Weist’s own early personal experiences in lacrosse, why he felt the need to start a lacrosse team at the school, and some of the unique characters critical to the genesis of what is now arguably the nation’s smallest “Big Time” high school lacrosse team. Still working at age 82 and living in Florida, Coach Weist remains active in his community and maintains contact with a number of his former players.

Syracuse women's lacrosse coach Gary Gait is taking his team to its fifth straight Division I NCAA Tournament Final Four this weekend. That's an impressive track record for any program, but Gait knows there's one more level to reach before claiming status as one of the elite squads in the country.
The nationally top-ranked SUNY Cortland women's lacrosse team brings its 21-0 record and 40-game winning streak to the NCAA Div. III "final four" this weekend at Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pa. The Red Dragons face fifth-ranked Middlebury College (20-1) on Saturday at 12 p.m. in the first semifinal of the day.
All four teams played difficult schedules to reach this point, but Syracuse might be the most game-ready team remaining. The last eight games for Syracuse came against NCAA tournament teams with five of those games coming against seeded teams, and a sixth (Stony Brook) against a team that very well could have been seeded.
No. 4 seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) made its fourth consecutive national semifinals after slipping past Southern California in the quarterfinals. Now, it takes on undefeated No. 1 seed Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania, with a trip to the national championship game on the line.
Here are three things SU head coach Gary Gait said on the NCAA coaches teleconference on Monday:
The first chapter of Ralph Ellison’s 1952 novel Invisible Man has also been published as a stand-alone short story under the title “Battle Royal.” It depicts an old-fashioned smoker, where the wealthy, white men of the community gather for an evening of entertainment that is both racist and sexist. While that might sound kind of dark and somber for an introduction to this week’s Road Trip Dad piece, it kind of describes what I was picturing when I attended my first-ever Sectional boys’ lacrosse meeting this past week . . .
While most youth lacrosse is wrapping up the regular season, many local kids are still practicing. On Sunday some lacrosse players had a chance to practice with four-time All American's Rob Pannell, and Max Seibald at Binghamton High school.
Buffalo and Saskatchewan swept their respective divisional finals will meet in a best-of-three series for the National Lacrosse League Champions Cup. Game one of the series will be held next Saturday at Buffalo.
Junior Kristen Ohberg (Brewster) tallied a game-high seven points on six goals and one assist to lead the nationally top-ranked Cortland women's lacrosse team to an 18-2 victory versus Catholic University Sunday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Div. III Women's Lacrosse Tournament.
With the win, the Red Dragons improved to 21-0 on the season and extended their home winning streak to 78 consecutive games and overall winning streak to 40 straight games.

The St. Lawrence University Men's Lacrosse team limited the Tufts University scoring runs in the first half but a run of seven out of eight goals from the end of the second quarter through the third quarter for the Jumbos led to a 23-12 loss for the Saints ending a record breaking year in the semifinal game of the NCAA Division III Tournament Sunday afternoon on Bello Field in Medford, Massachusetts.
No matter how bad it got when the Christian Brothers Academy boys lacrosse team lost, 15-7, at Skaneateles on May 11, it knew that things would matter more if the two sides would have a rematch in the Section III Class C playoffs.
And that’s exactly what’s going to happen, with the no. 5 seed Brothers going back to Hyatt Stadium to face the no. 4 seed Lakers in the sectional quarterfinals Tuesday night after last Saturday’s opening-round games where CBA dusted off no. 12 seed Lowville 21-2 and Skaneateles handled no. 13 seed Holland Patent 23-3.

#4 Syracuse is returning to championship weekend for the fifth straight year after defeating No. 5 USC, 12-11, in overtime in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament.

Syracuse’s Halle Majorana was parallel with the Southern California goal on the left side of the field. It’s at that spot on the field that she had already racked up five points with a barrage of goals and assists in the second half.
With time winding down in the first overtime period, Kelly Cross cut across down the middle of the field. Majorana lofted the pass to her and she slammed it in past goalie Gussie Johns. Syracuse had won the game, 12-11, with 21.2 seconds left in overtime.
