CANTON - The majestic skills and speed of undefeated Ichabod Crane (19-0-1) and the opportunism of Hoosic Falls (16-5-0) produced victories for Section 2 over Section 10 Champions Ogdensburg Free Academy (8-5-4) and Canton Central (9-5-4) on Tuesday in New York State Boys Soccer action at SUNY Canton’s turf field.

In Class B action the Riders from the Southern tip of Section 2 near the Hudson River blanked OFA 3-0 to lift their goal differential to 100-2. In Class C action the Panthers, playing the regionals for the first times since the early 1980s, broke a scoreless deadlock in 1:03 into sudden victory overtime.

Both teams will chase NYS Final Four berths on Saturday against Section 7 Champions in the Plattsburgh area.

CLASS B

Alex Neimann finished off a play set up by Richardo Cruz with just 52 seconds left in the first half and the Riders went on to add a pair of second-half goals to put away the Blue Devils. Seth Scarano made it 2-0 when he converted on a penalty kick in the 13th minute of the second half. Seven minutes later, Tyler Jabalanski sealed the win with a unassisted goal from 35 yards out.

Pierce Reilly made four saves backstopping the win while Jacob Sias handled 14 shots in the losing cause.
