Brockport Tennis v. Keuka

Quick blog on shooting the women's tennis team for the second time. This time I was able to shoot them at home....sort of. They are playing at Brockport High School since they knocked down the college courts because that is where the new SERC project is going. The ladies performed very well and defeated the Keuka Storm 6-3. Click here for the rest of the pics....

SUNY Brockport Field Hockey

After the Brockport Invitational cross country meet on Saturday, I made my way over to the field hockey game. This was my first SUNY Brockport field hockey game of the year and needed to get a bunch of shots for the college. It was the ladies home opener as they took on the Golden Flyers of Nazareth. Brockport scored two goals in the first half and never looked back as they defeated Nazareth 2-0. Click here for the rest of the pics...

Gates Chili Soccer v. Hilton

Both the Gates-Chili girls and boys teams took on the cadets Tuesday and Wednesday evening last week.

Very dark and rainy night on Tuesday as the Cadets travelled to Gates-Chili to take on the Spartans in boys soccer. Gates-Chili had some early chances and seemed to have control during the first half of play. Late in the first half, Hilton scored on a deflection to go up 1-0. I left at half due to the loss of light and the look of some heavy weather coming in. Hilton ended up beating GC 1-0 as the game was called due to lightning with 16 mins. left in the 2nd half.

I was back to Gates-Chili after the boys played the previous day, the girls of Hilton and Gates were playing now. I was only able to stay for one half and no goals were scored. The second half had plenty of scoring as Gates beat the Cadets 3-1. Click here for the rest of the pics...

Section V Football Opening Weekend

The start of the 2010 football season on Friday brought together two of the better teams in the last few years. Both teams lost a substantial amount of offense from the previous year. Hilton lost two huge impact players with the graduation of Duell Smith and Adam Gruschow. Gates-Chili lost two giants in the running game with Levester Tucker and Elijah Thomas moving on. I wasn't sure what I would see on the field Friday night.

It rained for the first half and Gates took advantage as Nick Kaminski scored two rushing td's to make it 14-0. The Spartans tacked on another score with a pass from Malcolm Frazier to Steve Tucciarello. Gates led 21-0 at halftime. Hilton bounced back with two rushing td's of their own by Mike Ingoglia in the second half and made what looked to be a blowout back into a close game. Gates offense was able to run out the remaining three minutes and hold on to the lead for a 21-14 victory. Click here for the rest of the pics...

I had a busy day Saturday but still made room to fit in 3 quarters of the RH v. Schroeder football game. It seems that both teams played this game a bit rusty making some mistakes on both sides of the ball. RH has been picked by many to be the top team in the county and they have a ton of weapons. Everyone knows about Broyld at QB but they have two great backs in (Christian) Harris and Barley. Wide receivers/DB's; Maio and Scissum are quick and play great on the defensive side in the secondary.

As for Schroeder, two players really stand out. McKnight is one of the top QB's in the league and is a dual threat. Guarino-Hyde is a returning AGR player on the line playing both ways.

The game was somewhat even for the first quarter and slowly RH picked up steam throught the next two. I left at the end of the third quarter with RH up 25-10 and was thinking the game was in hand. I found out later that Schroeder had a couple quick scores including a field goal to go up 26-25 with just over 30 seconds left. RH had a great kick return and a quick pass to Harris and turned the game back in RH's favor as they won 32-26. Click here for the rest of the pics...

Brockport Football Opener

Saturday night was SUNY Brockport's first football game of the year and they were at St. John Fisher to play the Cardinals. The Golden Eagles looked like they were going to be able to hang with the nationally ranked Cardinals early but St. John Fisher started to pull away in the second quarter. After the first quarter it was all Cardinals as they proved to be a dominant team in their first game of the year. St. John Fisher beat Brockport 55-12. Click here for the rest of the photos...
