Hello everyone, it’s a beautiful day here in Cortland and Garden City and Canandaigua are on the field warming up for today’s state Class B semifinal. Farmingdale reached its third straight state Class A final by defeating Pittsford, 17-6 moments ago.

Garden City (19-0) is seeking its fifth straight state championship. Canandaigua (19-1) of Section V, comes in as the No. 3 ranked Class B team in the state, behind GC and Rocky Point. The Braves lost to Yorktown, which fell to Garden City in the final, in last season’s semifinal by a score of 13-9. Canandaigua’s only loss this season came to Good Counsel (Maryland), which for an LI comparison, fell to St. Anthony’s in double overtime earlier this season. For anyone wondering, Canandaigua lies southeast of Rochester near the Finger Lake of the same name.

The draw is set for noon. See you then.
