NIAGARA WHEATFIELD (17-2-1) 0
GREECE ATHENA (17-2-2) 3
Ryan Fitzgerald didn’t need a detailed explanation. With Othman Belhseine and Dylan Rice shouldering the bulk of the scoring in recent games, the junior midfielder knew his two teammates would receive added attention in Friday’s New York State Class A Far West Regional. Fitzgerald one-timed the rebound off his original shot for a 1-nil lead with 14:23 remaining in the first half. Emmitt Rosado doubled the advantage in the 65th minute when he connected on his first varsity goal. Dylan Rice put the game out of reach for Athena (No. 12 NYSSWA). READ MORE.

CLASS B

LACKAWANNA (18-4-0) 0
BATH-HAVERLING (21-0-0) 2
Keefer Calkins netted the only goal necessary 23rd minute, Bath-Haverling (No. 1 NYSSWA) advanced to the New York State Class B semifinals for the first time in 23 years. Four minutes into the match, Lorenzo Serafini was helped off the field after getting undercut while going for a 50/50 ball. His return to the field, eighteen minutes later, generated the go-ahead goal just a minute after his re-entry. From a little before midfield, he fed a through ball to his counterpart, Calkins, who rolled the ball into the left corner of the net, barely missing the outstretched leg of Lackawanna (No. 11 NYSSWA) keeper, Yousef Albakri.
