Mohonasen knocks out Scotia-Glenville again

"It is what it is," said Bailey. "It was a great game, just like last year. We just happened to be on the short end again."

Mike Korzun gave Mohonasen a 1-0 lead 3:30 into the game when he launched a shot from the top of the penalty box that DiBiase had no chance to stop.

"I always emphasize that the first 10 minutes of the game sets the tone," said Gregg.

Scotia-Glenville had a hard time generating scoring chances the rest of the game, as Mohonasen's defenders cleared lead pass after lead pass.

"They played very direct " a lot more direct than we're used to in the Suburban Council," said Gregg. "My [defensive] backs held their own and positioned themselves well to prevent opportunities on goal."

Mohonasen will try to get back to the Sectional finals Thursday when it meets Patroon Conference champion Ichabod Crane in the semifinals at Queensbury High School.

"As long as we play our game, I think we should do fine," said Gregg.

As for Scotia-Glenville, it can only think about what could have been again.

"Our seniors were devastated, but in the same light, it's only high school soccer and you have to take things as they come," said Bailey.""
