Tags: Bishop Luddenboys soccerMarcellusskaneatelesSolvayWest GeneseeWesthill The largest question in area high school boys soccer heading into 2019 centered around reigning state Class B champion Westhill, and whether it could stay on top after heavy graduation losses.At first, things weren’t that difficult as the Warriors beat Section X’s Salmon River 3-0 in its Aug. 29 season debut, and then would face Rome Free Academy last Wednesday afternoon.Making it back-to-back shutouts, the Warriors blanked the Black Knights 1-0, having Jackson Powers net the game’s only goal and then turning it over to the defense, who contained RFA as Ian Prebish, replacing Liam Robb in goal, recorded five saves. Few sides are better positioned to go after Westhill than Skaneateles. To test itself on Labor Day weekend, Skaneateles traveled to the Albany Area and faced two Section II Class AA opponents.The first part was rough, with the Lakers falling 5-0 to Shenendehowa, But Skaneateles turned it around on Aug. 31 to edge Saratoga Springs 1-0. Defenders Alex Arefyev and Landon Hellwig were superb and helped Andrew Neumann (who had eight saves) preserve the slim margin gained when Jack Donovan scored off a feed from Tylar Moss.Back home, Skaneateles leaned on Moss in a big way against Rochester’s Bishop Kearney (Section V) last Tuesday night, topping the Kings 4-0 at Hyatt Stadium. Only ahead 1-0 at halftime, the Lakers got away from Kearney as Moss not only netted three goals for a hat trick, he assisted on Owen Cheney’s goal. Hellwig, Gavin Cheney and Colin Gaglione each had one assist as Neumann, to get the shutout, had to make nine saves.Then Skaneateles handled Blessed Virgin Mary 6-0 on Thursday, led by Owen Cheney, who had two goals and one assist. Gaglione, Ryan Willard, Cooper Purdy and Andrew Moss had the other goals, with Hellwig, Arefyev and Tylar Moss earning assists.West Genesee began Aug. 29 hosting Central Square and earned a 1-1 draw with the Redhawks. Trailing 1-0 in the second half, Josh Rialmuto’s goal, assisted by Tom Shields, pulled the Wildcats even, and 20 minutes of overtime could not settle matters.Then WG routed Fabius-Pompey 7-1 a day later, Shields proving difficult to contain as he notched two goals and two assists. Jesper Behr and David Puma each had one goal and one assist, with Josh Rimauldo, Ben Paoli and Sean Leonard also earning goals.In its SCAC Metro division opener on Thursday night, the Wildcats won again, handling Nottingham 4-1. Shields led the way, scoring twice and adding an assist as Paoli and Puma also found the net. Jadin Lyle and Justin Klaczko earned assists.Solvay has a new head coach, Terrance Case, and he had a successful debut on Aug. 29 as the Bearcats piled up goals in a 7-2 victory over the Onondaga Tigers.It was Jason Knickerbocker earning a three-goal hat trick, adding an assist. David O’Toole scored twice and got an assist, while David Booth and Nick Kumar got single goals and Ty Marnell finished with five assists.Prevailing again last Tuesday night, Solvay edged LaFayette 3-2, mainly due to the work of David Achull, who netted all three of the Bearcats’ goals as Dennis Achull and Dan Mrowinski picked up assists.Bishop Ludden, expected to challenge for sectional Class D honors, claimed a local rivalry in its opener last Tuesday night, the Gaelic Knights edging Bishop Grimes 3-2.The show belonged to Ludden forward Michael Gaughan, who was credited with all three of his team’s goals, earning a hat trick as Antonio Scutari and Liam Casey had one assist apiece.Ludden then lost by that same 3-2 margin to Phoenix on Thursday, with Casey and Mike Gagin earning goals, but the Firebirds seeing Sean Stevens score twice off feeds from Adam Hahn, who had the other goal.Then Ludden took on Solvay Saturday afternoon, a thrilling game that went 3-2 in the Gaelic Knights’ favor.Charlie Colella keyed Ludden’s effort, not only netting a goal, but assisting on scoring plays by Gaughan and Casey. That negated the goals put up by Achull and Ed Matysuk for Solvay, with Knickerbocker adding an assist.Jordan-Elbridge dropped its season opener 3-0 to Manlius-Pebble Hill, despite 17 saves from goalie Keegan Ferris, but then beat Port Byron/Union Springs 4-2 on Thursday as Mike Meyer got two goals and one assist. Brayam Gonzalez and Owen Barrigar also scored, with Richard Hill adding an assist and Ferris getting 13 saves.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story
30 Jan 2015 Golf Tourism England and England Golf join forces Golf Tourism England (GTE), the recently-formed body charged with attracting more visitor income for English golf courses from tourism, is delighted to announce a strategic partnership with England Golf. The agreement signals England Golf’s support for the membership body, which intends to unite the stakeholders within golf tourism in one of the sport’s most developed markets. Since its launch in July 2014, almost 100 golf properties and tour operators have enlisted as GTE members, with further support for the initiative already having been offered by Visit England, the national tourist board. GTE founder and Chief Executive Andrew Cooke said: “We are delighted that England Golf has given its backing to Golf Tourism England and I believe that this partnership will allow us to establish stronger working relationships between the many individual bodies which have a stake in English golf tourism at present. “Our job is to identify opportunities for these groups to work together and create cross-marketing strategies in order for tour operators to create outstanding bespoke packages to benefit the tourism experience. “In recent times, England has been guilty of resting on its laurels, while others around us, particularly our neighbours in Scotland and Ireland, have greatly benefitted on a joined-up approach, which has yielded excellent returns in terms of inbound tourism. “With six Open Championship venues, some of the world’s best examples of links, parkland, heathland and cliff-top golf, as well as vibrant cities and endless miles of beautiful natural countryside, we are confident that a similar approach can establish England as a prominent destination for golfers worldwide.” The partnership supports the aims of England Golf to create a brighter future for the sport. Its strategy, Raising Our Game, was launched last summer to create stronger clubs, increase the number of regular golfers and to halt the decline in club membership. England Golf Chief Executive David Joy, said: “England Golf is working at the heart of a network of partners to build stronger golf clubs. This new partnership offers an excellent opportunity to support and educate clubs to promote themselves to tourists from home and abroad and increase their visitor income. It will also encourage local partnerships, with groups of clubs working alongside tour operators and accommodation providers for the benefit of themselves and their communities. “We will be working closely with Andrew and his team in the coming months to encourage clubs to join GTE and benefit from a more harmonised approach to golf tourism.” To find out more about Golf Tourism England and for membership enquiries, visit www.golftourismengland.com.

Facebook0Tweet0Pin0The Timothy Team is a local helps organization that sets up around 400 families a year for those who have suffered a catastrophic event. We go even further than that and actually mentor those folks until they are strong enough to make it on their own should they permit us to. We are all volunteered staffed, all private donation funded, and 100% of all that is donated goes right back into the community. We are tax deductible for donations, and we pick up. We are also referral only. We take referrals from over 60 local helps agencies and many of our churches. Timothy Team is a registered 501 ©3, and our EIN# is 208388746. We are also registered with the Wash. St. Combined Fund Drive, and our number there is 1479477.On Friday November 11th starting at 2:00pm we will be having a “fill the truck drive” and silent auction at the historic Black Lake Grange right next to the new Black Lake Fire Dept.. From 4:00pm to 6:00pm we will be having our awesome soup cook-off. It will be a suggested donation, and 5 men who have been bantering for years over who is the best cook will be put to the test. If nothing else, come by and vote for your favorite soup. The silent auction will close at 7:00pm.This fundraiser is very important to our community. About 2 years ago, the Union Gospel Mission and Barb and Friends quit doing furniture. Now there are a few other organizations that provide furnishings, but none to the scale that Timothy Team does.
