PERFECT SHOOTOUT LIFTS POTSDAM IN STATE OPENER

POTSDAM 0, LAKE PLACID 0 (OT/Tie)
The Potsdam Sandstoners went 5-for-5 in penalty kicks, outlasting a near-perfect effort by Lake Placid in the shootout to advance in the opening round of the New York State Class C playoffs. After a scoreless game through 110 minutes in which Potsdam keeper Ashler Herrick snared all 11 Blue Bomber shots, Sandstoners Seth Tharrett, Matt Stone, Dave Caamano, Dominic Frascatore and Jaime Lopez delivered penalty kicks to the mesh. Placid keeper Noah Mohr prevented Potsdam from capturing the win in the first overtime when he deflected what would have been a game winner with :06 left. Herrick’s spectacular save to his right deflected Lake Placid’s third shot in the PKs that proved to be the margin. Potsdam advances to the Region II Championship (state quarterfinal round) against Section II’s Lake George.

POTSDAM FALLS 1-0 IN STATE SEMIFINAL ON 2ND-HALF GOAL

WORLD OF INQUIRY 1, POTSDAM 0
World of Inquiry of Rochester took advantage of a missed clearing attempt, got behind the Potsdam defense and scored the game’s only goal at 17:38 of the second half, then held off the Sandstoners in a 1-0 win in the New York State Class C semifinals. The Griffins’ Toyi Hakizimana fired a rising shot and went “top shelf” to the right corner on a feed from James Weh, amidst a scramble in front of the Potsdam net. Both teams had chances to score on parital breakaways in the first half. Potsdam keeper Ashler Herrick, who made eight saves in the game, made a diving fingertip save to prevent Inquiry from scoring on their break. Potsdam, making just its second Final Four appearance ever (the other in 2001), appeared to take the lead when David Caamano launched a low liner just inside the near goalpost. However, the officials ruled that when Inquiry keeper Mike Hunter bobbled the stop and the ball trickled into the net, he had been interfered with by a Potsdam player and the goal was nullified. Potsdam closed out its season at 14-6-1.

David began the play with a kick from just beyond midfield that was deflected out by Lake George. Morgan Sutliff picked up the loose ball and sent it back into the scrum in front of the net where it was redirected by Dan Caamano. The Sandstoners’ Ashler Herrick weathered a barrage of shots in the final 10 minutes as Lake George pressed ahead for the equalizer, but ultimately could not avoid elimination. Herrick finished with eight saves. However, the defensive line of Sutliff, David Caamano, Jacob Mitchell and Matt Stone helped deflect much of the attack. Lake George keeper Eli Gowen collected seven saves.

The goal came just three minutes after Panthers’ goalie Taylor Tallman, who recorded eight saves, made a spectacular stop on a point-blank shot. Potsdam keeper Ashler Herrick turned out three shots. The win also marked a unique husband-wife championship coaching effort in the same season for Potsdam boys coach Al Benda and Gouverneur girls coach Shelly Benda. The Sandstoners draw Section VII Champion Lake Placid in the opening round of state playoffs on the new turf field at Ogdensburg. Brushton-Moira filed away its season at 7-8-1.
