CONCENTRATION: Notre Dame's Tom Dehr concentrates on a shot as Batavia's Tim Finnell attempts a deflection.

It was another full house at the Falleti Ice Arena Tuesday night as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish hosted cross town rival Batavia Ice Devils for the second match of the season. will.jpg

It was an evenly matched game for most of the first period with each team taking their own share of penalties, until Batavia found themselves having to kill off a 5-on-3 power play. Notre Dame took control at that point and defenseman Beau Richter was able to capitalize and put the Irish up 1-0 on a play that was set up by Jason Harasimowicz. The two man advantage for the Irish didn’t go away for long as the Devils took another penalty to fall back to three skaters. The Irish almost took advantage of this opportunity again as Jack Nenni put the puck by Batavia goaltender Adam Kurek, but was denied the point, as the buzzer to end the period sounded half a second before the puck crossed the line.

Batavia took advantage of the first intermission and came out to start the second period with an early goal by forward Will Mulcahy. It was the 11th goal of the season for the senior forwarjason.jpgd who is currently leading the team in goals and points (13).

With just over a minute into the third period, Notre Dame’s Jack Nenni took a boarding penalty which gave Batavia the man advantage. Batavia’s Corey Kocent almost put Batavia up by a goal, but managed to be denied by the goal post.

With 2:40 left in the third period, Batavia junior forward Tim Finnell picked up a loose puck, that he took to the front of the net and was able to backhand it through the legs of Notre Dame goaltender Tom Dehr. That goal proved to be the game winner for the Ice Devils. Kocent and Mulcahy were credited with the assists on the play.

Adam Kuredylan.jpgk ended the game with 26 saves for Batavia, while Tom Dehr stopped 14 shots for Notre Dame.

Notre Dame won the matchup earlier this season as they defeated Batavia 4-1 in Batavia’s David M. McCarthy Memorial Christmas Tournament. Batavia is now 6-7-1 and will play Brighton/East/HFL (5-7-1) on Saturday. Notre Dame falls to 11-4 and remains in first place in their division. They host Victor (9-4) Thursday at the Falleti Ice Arena.

The Fighting Irish are off to another championship game again after defeating Bishop Kearney/ East Irondequoit 5-2 in the first game of Brockport's Winter Tournament in ice hockey action.

The game began relatively even as it took two periods to get a score on the board as BK took the early second period lead with a goal by Brandon Brady just 1:43 into the period. That's when Notre Dame went to work and registered four goals just 1:02 apart. Dylan Versage and Beau Richter set up Jason Harasimowicz on the powerplay to tie the game at 1-1. Then just 16 seconds later, Harasimowicz and Ivan Madafferi set up Versage to give ND the lead. Their scoring still wasn't over. Just 23 seconds after that Phil Vigneri gave ND the third goal on a solo effort. Just 23 seconds after that Jack Nenni registered the fourth goal off of an assist from David Wolcott.

BK ended out the 2nd period scoring by putting the game at 4-2 with a unassisted goal by Shane Ashe.

With 5:26 into the 3rd period Josh Halle gave Harasimowicz the pass to give ND the final goal on the powerplay and to cap off the scoring at 5-2.

Tom Dehr made 16 saves for Notre Dame who improves their record to 7-2.

Brett Marrapese made 46 saves for Bishop Kearney who falls to 1-7.

The Irish will take on Brockport tonight at 7:00 in the championship game at the Tuttle Ice Arena in Brockport. Brockport defeated Spencerport last night 4-1 to advance to the finals.

It was a great night for the local goaltenders as both Brandon Corcoran of Batavia and Tom Dehr of Notre Dame posted shut outs in high school hockey matchups.

Notre Dame hosted Bishop Kearney at the Falletti Ice Arena and was able to post their sixth victory of the season by a score of 2-0. Freshman Tyler Kessler had a big night for the Irish as he registered both goals.

His first came with 1:59 remaining in the first period off of an assist from Brett Perfitt.

Kessler then gave Notre Dame the insurance goal with 9:45 remaining in the game with the assists being credited to Perfitt and Jack Nenni.

Dehr ended the game with 13 saves for the Irish (6-2) and his first shutout of the season. Brett Marrapese  had 39 saves for Bishop Kearny (1-6).

In the other matchup, Batavia traveled to Geneva where they skated to a scoreless tie.

Brandon Corcoran recorded his first shutout of the season by stopping all of the 23 shots he faced. Zach Koczent made 37 saves for Geneva. Batavia is now 3-3-1 while Geneva is 2-5-1.

For three of four quarters today, Notre Dame dominated Red Jacket, leading to a 45-18 victory in the first round of sectional playoffs.

Before the Red Jackets could even get its offense going, Notre Dame's big play offense had 17 points on the board.

"We played three great quarters and that’s the kind of intensity we wanted to bring," said Head Coach Rick Mancuso. "After that lull in the game in the second quarter, we kind of got them back in the game."

That lull, Mancuso said, seemed to be as the result of an injury time-out in which a Red Jacket player was hit hard by a Notre Dame linebacker on a run play. The Red Jacket runner was slow getting up and then collapsed as he tried to leave the field.

"We lost some of our emotion, which was actually a concern to me," Mancuso said. "I was saying, 'Hey, don’t let this get you down,' but we did lose some intensity there and then we made a couple of mistakes and basically let them back in the ball game."

Red Jacket closed out the second quarter with 12 unanswered points.

Mancuso said he didn't say anything special to his players during half time, but from the start of the third quarter, the Fighting Irish were focused again and scored three consecutive TDs, and adding another 7 points in the fourth quarter before Red Jacket scored a touchdown in the final two minutes of play.

"We started the game fast. We played really well. We played with emotion," Mancuso said.

Notre Dame is now 6-1 on the season.

Running back Mike Pratt keyed the offense with 220 yards gained on 27 carries, scoring four touchdowns.

Bo Ricter scored Notre Dame's first TD on a three-yard run.

Notre Dame then surprised Red Jacket with an onside kick. On the very next play, Nick Bochicchio hit Gianni Zambito on a 51-yard TD pass. Zambito scored after the Red Jacket defender over committed to the ball, missed it and Zambito snatched it from the air and turned toward the end zone with no Red Jacket defenders between him and the goal line.

Matt Thompson closed out the first quarter with a 28-yard field goal.

Red Jacket scored in the second quarter on a 21-yard pass from Tyler Hixson to Trevor Sanders and a 32-yard pass from Hixson to Sanders. Both two-point conversion attempts were stopped by the Notre Dame defense.

The next four TDs all went to Notre Dame: Pratt had TD runs of 1 yard, 4 yards, 15 yards and 7 yards.

The final score of the game was a Chris Coslasurdo 35-yard pass to Sanders. Again, Red Jacket was unable to convert its two-point try.

Cam McDonald had eight tackles.

Kicker Thompson had eight points in the game, converting all of his PATs plus the field goal.

With Oakfield-Alabama and Cal-Mum trading scores through the first three quarters of their quarterfinal sectional playoff game tonight, and both teams seemingly able to run the ball at will, it became evident as the fourth quarter started that the winner would be decided when one defense or the other made a stand and stopped a drive.

And that's exactly what happened.

On its first drive of the fourth quarter, the Hornets couldn't get past the Red Raiders 40 yard line and Cal-Mum took over on downs.

Minutes later, the Red Raiders were in the end zone and with a two-point conversion, and obtained what would prove to be an insurmountable lead, 30-21.

The Hornets would score one more touchdown, but fall short by two points, 30-28.

"It came down to them just pounding the ball at us and not getting away from what they do best," said Hornets Head Coach Brian Palone after the game. "They made the plays when they needed to make the plays."

The two-point margin can also be explained by two failed point after attempts. In the second quarter, kicker Jon Fisher hit an upright, and in the third quarter, a high snap spoiled the attempt.

The Hornets got off to a quick start when Fisher placed a perfect onside kick down the far sideline and OA scrambled and took possession of the ball.

The offense then marched the ball 45-yards down the field for a score and a 7-0 lead. Matt Osmancickli scored that TD on a one-yard run.

But the home team answered right back, bringing the ball down to the one-yard line, where Trevor Haut was able to shove his way into the endzone. Cal-Mum tried for a two-point conversion, so the score was 7-6.

On its first possession of the second quarter, OA again looked like an offense with an unbeatable run game, taking the ball down the field until Matt Osmancickli capped the drive with a one-yard TD rush. After Fisher missed the PA, OA's lead was 13-6

Cal-Mum answered right back, putting a long drive together that ended with a Trevor Haut three-yard TD run. Jon Cappotelli carried the ball in on the two-point conversion, giving his team a one-point lead, 14-13.

OA grabbed back a one-point margin when a high snap on a Cal-Mum punt attempt was kicked out of the back of the end zone for a safety. That made the score 15-14 Hornets.

Both teams scored again in the third quarter. But with a muffed extra point attempt and a successful two-point conversion, Cal-Mum was able to convert another two-point try, so now the Raiders were up 22-21.

The Raiders were able to stop Oakfield-Alabama on its fourth-quarter drive and immediately answer back with another touch down. This time it was on a 19-yard pass from Mike Anderson to Dan Whiteside, plus they tacked on two-more points. The Hornets found themselves in a bit of a deep hole, down 30-21.

But OA kept fighting, engineering another drive that culminated in a one-yard rush by Osmancickli and an extra point from Fisher, making it 30-28, which is how the game would end.

The Hornets got off to a slow start this season with Coach Palone taking over the program for the first time and finding himself with few returning seniors. Palone and other coaches around the league will tell you that OA has been a team that has improved greatly every week as the season progressed.

Palone said tonight he's proud of the progress his team has made.

"I thought this was the best game we played all year and that’s all I can ask of them, to just get better every game," Palone said.

NOTE: About the video -- yes, I miss my high-def camera. It won't be repaired for another six weeks.

I work for a college, it'll remain unnamed. In the office where I work our students are primarily adults. We offer different degree options, and full-time status so that our students qualify for financial aid. On top of my normal office duties, I also tutor students in writing.

I attended a traditional (private) four-year instutition in New York State. I have a BA and I consider myself pretty intelligent. I could probably teach some social studies courses and have a healthy experience teaching high school, if I so desired.

I'm attending graduate school to get my Master's in Educational Leadership, I want to work with college students, specifically (eventually) adult students at a traditional 4-year institution.

Through these experiences I am always amazed at the lack of reading and writing comprhension. Even at the Master-level, students do not read or comprehend the reading. They do not engage with the reading. They have no questions or comments about the reading. It's sad. The students I work with have no idea how to form an academic argument or even write the traditional 5-paragraph essays.

Here on the boards I'm amazed at what is considered fact and reliable. It's not that there are "bad" sources out there (well, there are, but pretend for a moment there aren't any) but what we use to back up our arguments here on the internet (all over the internet) would never be accepted academically. They wouldn't be accepted in the high school curriculum in NYS. But, my main point is, here on the internet are "real" people, those that actually exist in this world without the help of an academic sitting on their shoulder. It amazes me how our education system has failed so many people.

 

Here's an article that really sums up my feelings, and frustrations, as a student and educational leader (you may or may not be able to read the whole thing, I'm at work so I'm not sure what's private on the site). http://chronicle.com/jobs/news/2009/06/2009063001c.htm (and I realize this post might make me sound high-and-mighty, but it's really just about observations I've had through my experiences)

The Genesee/Livingston Cross Country League boasts some of the best runners in Section V.  Those runners will all face-off today at the GR/LC Cross Country Championships today at Genesee Community College.  This is the final tune-up before the Section V Championships held on November 1 at Marcus Whitman High School.  For some of the runners, this will be their last race, as only the top ten of each team can race at Sectionals (top seven in the varsity race, and 8-10 in a sub-race).   With many of the teams in this league ranked not only in Section V, but also the state, it will be an exciting race to watch.
