Hello again from Growney Stadium at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, site of the state semifinals in boys lacrosse for the Western half of the state.
We were here on Saturday for the Far West Regionals, when Silver Creek became the first Section VI team to win a regional game to advance to the state final four. The Black Knights will try to continue their historic playoff run as it faces Cazenovia of lacrosse power Section III (Syracuse area).
7:24 p.m. The game is scheduled for 8 p.m., but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. We have 4:32 left in the third quarter of the Class B game between Irondequoit and Jamesville-Dewitt (J-D just took a 4-1 lead).
8:03 p.m. We have a final score in the Class B game: Jamesville-Dewitt 9, Irondequoit 6.
With the ceremony going on now and warmups to follow, it's going to be a close call for my deadline, which is before 10 p.m.
8:13 p.m. Yikes. There are just over 26 minutes counting down on the scoreboard, giving us a first faceoff at about 8:40 p.m. Yikes again.
With that yikes-like stuff in mind, I'm going to do a lot of prep work before the game.
When the action starts, I'll go to the live blog below. Please be mindful that I'll do my best to post comments but my primary goal is to have an account of the action for my story. I won't be able to answer many questions if any. Thanks much for your understanding.
After the game, feel free to make comments on the post.
