    Finals
    Saturday, November 5 at SUNY Purchase

    Greeley 2, John Jay-EF 1

    At SUNY Purchase, the No. 13-seeded Quakers became the lowest seed to ever win the Section 1 Class AA championship. Even more impressive, Greeley was led by 25-year old first-year coach Adam Borman. Jeremy Kesselhaut was the standout for the Quakers, burying a pair of second-half goals on breakaways. Freshman Oliver Harrison recorded an assist on Kesselhaut's second goal, giving Greeley a two-goal cushion in the 70th minute. Ryan Kaplan tallied the lone goal for No. 3-seeded John Jay-EF in the 75th minute. It was the only goal Greeley's defense gave up in four playoff wins. Keeper Harris Pollack spearheaded the effort with three saves. The Quakers, who last won a sectional title back in 2007, will play Section 9 champ Newburgh in the regional semifinals on November 8 at 4 p.m. at Middletown's Faller Field.

    Lakeland 1, Port Chester 0

    At SUNY Purchase, No. 7-seeded Lakeland (14-4-2) pulled off the upset of the year, shocking previously undefeated and No. 1-seeded Port Chester (18-1-1). Sebastian Marquez scored the game's lone goal less than two minutes into regulation, pouncing on a long-range free kick from Gonzalo Prando. Lakeland keeper Steven Reiche was fantastic in net, making 10 saves to blank a potent Rams offense for the first time all year. In addition to Reiche, sophomore defender Jon Pinto came up huge, sticking like glue to Port Chester star Kevin Riveros. It marked Lakeland's first Section 1 title since 2004 and fourth in school history. The Hornets, who have never won a state tournament game, will square off against Section 9's Goshen in the regional quarterfinals on November 9 at 6 p.m. at Middletown's Faller Field. Goshen defeated Byram Hills in the regional finals last year. The Rams — ranked No. 1 in the most recent NYS Class A poll — created countless opportunities but struggled with their finishing. Port Chester was going for its first sectional title since 1994. It was the first time the Rams had played in a final since 2005. Port Chester defeated Lakeland — which was top-seeded and 18-1 at the time — in the '05 semifinals.

    Blind Brook 2, Bronxville 1 (2OT)

    At SUNY Purchase, the No. 3-seeded Trojans (14-4-2) edged defending champ and No. 1-seeded Bronxville (16-2-1) in a double-overtime thriller. Blind Brook won it with 5:49 left in the second overtime on an goal by Bronxville. Trojans senior captain Matthew Christal set it up with a low, line drive corner kick toward the near post that deflected off a defender and into the net. Senior striker Lucas McBride gave the Trojans a 1-0 lead in the 63rd minute, blasting a beautiful dipping free kick that ricocheted off the bottom of the cross bar and in. Bronxville senior defender Ned Carpenter got the equalizer in dramatic fashion, finishing a corner kick with 46 seconds left in regulation. The Broncos lost starting goalie Jack Connors midway through the first overtime period with a leg injury. It marked the first-ever Class B sectional title for Blind Brook, which won the Class C title in 2009.

    John Jay-EF 2, Arlington 1

    At Arlington, the No. 3-seeded Patriots edged archival Arlington to advance to Saturday's championship game at SUNY Purchase against No. 13-seeded Horace Greeley. Ryan Kaplan and Kyle Cost scored a goal apiece to pace John Jay-EF's offense. Kaplan gave the Patriots a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute, scoring on a diving header off a long throw-in from teammate CJ Pourakis.

Jeff Greblick notched the lone goal for the No. 2-seeded Admirals, halving the deficit in the  76th minute. The two rivals split during the regular season, giving the Patriots the overall edge in the series.

    Lakeland 1, Pelham 0

    At Lakeland, the No. 7-seeded Hornets (13-4-2) avoided an upset against No. 11-seeded Pelham (13-5-2) and will return to the Section 1 Class A finals for the first time since 2007. Lakeland is slated to square off against No. 1-seeded Port Chester in the championship on Saturday at SUNY Purchase. Against the Pelicans, Gonzalo Prando tallied the game's lone goal in the second half off an assist from Timmy O'Driscoll. O'Driscoll has really turned it on in the playoffs, totaling a goal and three assists in a trio of wins. For Prando, it was his seventh goal of the season and second of the playoffs.

    Port Chester 1, Byram Hills 1 (Port Chester advances in penalty kicks 3-1)

    At SUNY Purchase, the No. 1-seeded Rams knocked off the two-time defending Section 1 Class A champs. Senior midfielder Brian Coyt gave Port Chester a 1-0 lead in the 27th minute, finishing a shot from inside the box. No. 5-seeded Byram produced the equalizer just 38 seconds into the second half, as Alex Meyer found the back of the net on a header. The two teams proceeded to play 69 minutes of scoreless soccer, leading to a shootout. Felipe Campos, Preston Higgins and Winston Arroyo all took care of business on their penalty kicks. Keeper Jose Gonzalez made three straight saves to put the win on ice. Port Chester — ranked No. 1 in the most recent NYS Class A poll — has outscored the opposition 11-3 in its three playoff wins. The Rams will play No. 7-seeded Lakeland in the finals on Saturday at SUNY Purchase. While Port Chester will move on in the tournament, state rules dictate the game will go down as a tie, meaning the Rams' record went to 18-0-1 — not 19-0. Byram Hills, meanwhile, ended its season at 14-3-3.  Overall, it was the third game of the season between the two rivals. Port Chester went 2-0-1 against Byram Hills, which knocked them out in last year's Section 1 Class A quarterfinal round and had won four of the past five Class A titles.

Babat then pounced on the rebound and put it in the back of the net. Trojans keeper Ben Seguljic had seven saves, including a point-blank one in the second half that coach Joe Pomoryn called his "best of the season."

Giovanni Gutierrez recorded two assists. Keeper Mark Larios kept a clean sheet with five saves. Hamilton — ranked No. 6 in the most recent NYS Class C poll — will be favorites heading into its semifinal matchup against No. 3-seeded Schechter on Saturday at SUNY Purchase.

    But coach Robert Segaloff isn't taking anything for granted.

    "Anything can happen in the playoffs," Segaloff said. "All the regular season is just to get ready for the playoffs. We have to continue playing our game, possessing the ball and playing hard-nosed soccer. We have to chase down balls like every ball is the last ball."

    Solomon Schechter 1, Haldane 0

    At Arlington High School, No. 3-seeded Schechter pulled off the upset with a shutout win over the defending Class C champs. Mark Fleishman scored the game's lone goal 12 minutes into the first half off an assist from Sam Jablansky. Keeper Ben Burton kept a clean sheet with five saves.

    No. 6-seeded Mamaroneck blanked No. 11-seeded Ketcham to advance to the second round of the Section 1 tournament. Jeffrey Coronel scored on a volley off a Marciano Rosales corner kick for the game’s lone goal, but it was enough to secure a matchup with No. 2-seeded John Jay-East Fishkill on Tuesday.

    Clarkstown South 3, New Rochelle 1

    At Clarkstown South, the No. 8-seeded Vikings gave up an goal early but stormed back to defeat the No. 9-seeded Huguenots.

    Clarkstown South will travel to No. 1-seeded Yorktown for a quarterfinal matchup on Tuesday. Ludwig knows a challenge lies ahead for his team, but believes South will be ready.

    "We need to play together as a team, that's the most important thing," Ludwig said. "We need to focus on attacking the goal, keeping it tight in the back, but most importantly, we need to stay together as a unit. If we can do that, we have a chance."

    Scarsdale 2, North Rockland 0

    Byram Hills 2, Somers 0

    At Byram Hills, the two-time defending Class A champs blanked No. 13-seeded Somers to setup yet another showdown with undefeated Port Chester in the semifinals. The rivals will square off on Thursday at SUNY Purchase at 3 p.m.

    The top-seeded Rams defeated the No. 5-seeded Bobcats twice during the regular season, outscoring them by a combined total of 4-0. In 2010, Byram Hills sent Port Chester home in the Section 1 Class A quarterfinals.

    "It's 0-0, a brand new game," Byram Hills coach Matt Allen said. "What happened in these last few games doesn't matter, what happened earlier in the year doesn't matter, what happened last season doesn't matter. It's about what happens in this semifinal between our two teams. It's a new game and we are going to give it our all."

    Against the Tuskers, Charlie Murphy and Jon Berry scored a goal apiece to pace the offense. Murphy opened the scoring in the 6th minute, finishing a nice pass from Jackson Mann. Berry sealed it in the second half with a goal assisted by Brad Tanner. Somers was able to get some shots on frame, but Bobcats keeper Ryan Golden kept a clean sheet with 10 saves.

    Somers 2, Yonkers 1 (OT)

    At Yonkers, senior striker Zack Reda scored the game-winning goal five minutes into the second overtime, sending the Tuskers into a frenzy. Somers will move on to face No. 5-seeded Byram Hills in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. 

    "Our guys went crazy after we won," Somers coach Joe Palumbo said. "This team has really bounced back in the second half of the year and we're playing with a lot of heart now. I'm really proud of our guys."

    Somers jumped out to a 1-0 first-half lead behind a goal from Jacob Bedrosian, but No. 4-seeded Yonkers pulled it together in the second half.  Corbin Pitts stepped up and provided the equalizer, but the Bulldogs failed to muster another goal. Despite the loss, Yonkers — which had its best season in program history — managed to impress.

    "We didn't really know what to expect from them, we hadn't seen them play," Palumbo said. "But they had talent. Their keeper was great and their coach Janet Ryan, in my opinion, she is the coach of the year. Very professional, everything done right. It was a great job."

    Now, the Tuskers will look to get past defending champ Byram Hills, which has defeated the Tuskers in back-to-back sectional title games.

    "We know they have a solid team and do everything very well," Palumbo said. "But we have some momentum now. We will need to play with focus and be a little more patient. We're going to give it everything we've got."

    Pearl River 4, Panas 0

    At Pearl River, the No. 2-seeded Pirates cruised to the victory behind a balanced offensive effort. Alex Castillo, Brian Chiarello, Jared Schlosser and Alec Zbar tallied one goal apiece. Pearl River will host No. 7-seeded Lakeland in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. The Hornets edged the Pirates, 1-0, in the regular season. 

    Byram Hills 2, Lourdes 0

    At Byram Hills, the No. 5-seeded Bobcats cruised behind two goals from Jon Berry. Berry scored once in each half on assists from Jordan Bank and Jeremy Brazda to propel Byram into a quarterfinal matchup against No. 13-seeded Somers on Tuesday.

    “The kids took a workmanlike approach to the game,” Byram coach Matt Allen said. “We had a four day lay-off and it was nice to get back on the field and get the win.”

    Port Chester 6, Riverside 1

    At Port Chester, the top-seeded Rams were paced by Brian Coyt's two-goal, one-assist performance. Rafa Mandujano also scored two goals and Kevin Riveros added another. JV call-ups Steven Hernandez and Luis Morales had good games, with Hernandez scoring a goal and Morales notching two assists. David Matilde scored Riverside's lone goal. Port Chester will host No. 9-seeded Sleepy Hollow in the quarterfinals on Tuesday.

    "It's tough in the stretch that we're in right now," Rams coach John Cafaldo said. "The regular season went great for us and now we're just trying to not make a slip up. We can't change what we do, so we just need to have productive practices and keep playing hard."

    Sleepy Hollow 2, Tappan Zee 1

    At Tappan Zee, No. 9-seeded Sleepy Hollow pulled off the big road win. Senior Ricardo Lopes scored and senior Brian Guananga added a goal and an assist to finish off the No. 8-seeded Dutchmen. Joey Amoia scored on a header off a Serafim Temidis corner kick for Tappan Zee's lone goal. Keeper Danny Calderon made 11 saves.

    “We played our high tempo, high pressure game," Sleepy Hollow coach Bryan Duschenchuk said. “It was an even game, but we managed to covert on our opportunities while our keeper Rob Bischof made some great saves to keep us in the lead.”

    The road only gets tougher for the Horsemen, as they travel to undefeated No. 1-seeded Port Chester for a quarterfinal matchup on Tuesday.
