Baldwinsville Boys Football Sweeps Henninger, Corcoran – Eagle News Online


ONONDAGA COUNTY — With its big end-of-season push, the Baldwinsville boys’ soccer team has given itself the best possible chance of reclaiming the crown it most desires.

As the Class AA Section III playoffs loomed, the Bees shook off two losses to Fayetteville-Manlius by unleashing their offense against other SCAC Metro Division foes.

B’ville overwhelmed Henninger last Tuesday night, shutting out the Black Knights 5-0 thanks to a big effort from Evan Smith, who not only scored two goals, but had two assists.

Johan Savage nearly matched that tally, getting two goals and an assist, while Abraham Cavalieri had the other goal, his first of the season. Aiden Baker had two assists and Keagan Hayes added an assist.

It was even more lopsided on Thursday night when, in their last home game of the regular season, B’ville beat Corcoran 5-0, able to score four times in the second half to escape after the Cougars stayed close. early.

In women’s soccer, Baldwinsville looked for a high-profile win last Tuesday against visiting West Genesee and came close, but lost 2-1 to the Wildcats.

WG had built a 2-0 margin thanks to a goal in each half, scored by Anna Nelson and Marissa Closson. B’ville shot within one when Audra Salvagni scored with seven minutes left in regulation time, but it couldn’t force extra time. Carlie Young finished with eight saves.

At least B’ville got on the board against the Wildcats, something he couldn’t pull off two nights later when they suffered a 3-0 loss to Fayetteville-Manlius.

Bitter after a double-overtime loss to Liverpool earlier in the week, the Hornets prevailed over B’ville, with Lexi Caron able to score two goals and Morgan Goodman winning the other goal. FM’s defense limited the Bees to just three shots all night.

In Friday’s regular season finale, B’ville met Class D in state no. Bishop Ludden, 2nd in the table, managed to secure a 2-1 victory against the Gaelic Knights.

They traded goals in the first half, but in the second half the Bees pulled out of the 1-1 draw and held on from there, having seen Nadia Guzman and Maddie Simons score goals, Salvagni and Natalie Hollingshead earning assists.

The B’ville girls would miss the playoffs, but the boys won the no. 5 seed, which means a quarter-final against the no. 4-seeded Cicero-North Syracuse Wednesday night at Bragman Stadium at 7 p.m. The winner will likely get the first FM seed in the semi-finals on October 25.
