Morning Round-up: Rye teams own overtime

As you can read in the three posts previous to this, Rye’s teams — field hockey and girls’ and boys’ soccer — swept the Election Day Sectional Tripleheader at Nugent Stadium yesterday. No game was lacking drama. Each went to overtime, where the Garnets eventually prevailed and advanced in their respective tournaments. Check out the stories and leave your comments!

Unfortunately, Rye’s volleyball team was ousted from the Class B Section quarterfinals on the road at Hen Hud. The Garnets — seeded ninth — fell to the top-seeded squadron 3-0 (25-8, 25-9, 25-13).

The sixth-seeded Rye Neck boys’ soccer team took advantage of another home game; they ousted No. 14 Pleasantville 3-1 to advance to the Section semifinals. Adam Gutierrez scored two goals and Phillipe Adam chipped in the Panthers’ third. Amazingly, Rye Neck will get to host the semifinal game because No. 7 Bronxville upset Westlake in their quarterfinal.

The Rye Neck girls’ soccer team’s season came to an end at the hands of No. 2 Bronxville, 4-0. In defeat, Jessica Wright made 13 saves for her team. The 10th-seeded Panthers – representing the smallest Class B school in the state – didn’t have the advantage of playing their first round contest at home either. At Kennedy last week they quickly erased a 1-0 deficit with 28 minutes left in the game. Georgia Richardson scored twice for the Panthers in less than a minute, lifting them into the quarterfinals, where they fell at Bronxville.

“Today’s match was our players’ championship,” said head coach Doug Choron after the JFK upset. “It made the entire season a success.”

The last time a Choron team faced Kennedy was in 1981, when his 10-4-2 Rye High girls’ soccer team went up against a 19-0 juggernaut that had allowed just one goal all year. In what was dubbed the “New York State Upset of the Year”, the Garnets defeated Kennedy 3-1 despite being outshot 22-4.

Holy Child’s field hockey team defeated St. Luke’s at home 2-0 in their regular season finale. Katie Amodio and Molly Fitzwilliam scored for the Gryphons, and Carrigan Henderson and Bridget Cooney had three saves apiece. Amodio’s goal was on a penalty corner pass from Megan McLaughlin. Fitzwilliam scored the second goal on a break away one-on-one with the goalie.

Holy Child begins their State title defense at home Thursday vs. fourth-seeded Nichols in the quarterfinals of the NYSAIS tournament. The Gryphons are the fifth seed. Rye Country Day’s field hockey team is also in the tournament — they’re seeded second. The two local schools have met in the NYSAIS finals the past three years, with Holy Child winning the first and third meetings. Because of the way the teams are seeded, we could very well see a fourth consecutive championship game.
