Garden City Ends Yorktown's State-Title Dreams

Yorktown opened the New York State Class B boys’ lacrosse East semifinal with a spurt Wednesday. The Cornhuskers scored the first three goals of the game -- Alex Terry, Conor Gately and Tyler Scheldt -- in a span of 56 seconds. This early surge gave Yorktown the early momentum and it appeared as if it would carry through, but Garden City just wasn't having it.

The Section 8 champion would climb back into the game and turn up the defensive intensity. Even though Yorktown led by one goal after the first quarter, the ‘Huskers’ offense would be short-circuited the remainder of the game, scoring just three more. Garden City took the lead in the third quarter and went to a 10-8 win over Yorktown at White Plains High School.

The Trojans, now 19-2, advance to the state final and play Jamesville-DeWitt of Section 3, Saturday at1:30 p.m. at Cicero-North Syracuse High School. Yorktown, which led 5-4 after one quarter, concludes its season with a 14-8 record.

The score was even at 6-6 at halftime, before Garden City took the lead for good in the third quarter. Tom Gordon opened the scoring at the 1:40 mark of the third quarter, giving Garden City a 7-6 lead, then Mark Ellis raced in on goal, untouched, and increased the advantage to two goals. Yorktown drew within a goal, 9-8, with 3:28 remaining on a Gately score, but Garden City intercepted a Yorktown pass and Liam Kennedy finished off the fast break, with 2:42 on the clock, to restore the two-goal lead.

Gately had a hat trick and three assists and Frank Fusco scored two goals. Devin Dwyer led Garden City with a hat trick and Tom Gordon and Liam Kennedy each scored two goals.
