Boys lacrosse: Sexton's OT goal wins it for Niskayuna

Silver Warriors rally from three-goal deficit to edge Shen

"I take the blame for this loss. We got outcoached out there," said Shen coach Chuck Holohan. "We had the ball inside their box at the 1:47 mark, and we turned it over at the 1:30 mark."

Shen never possessed the ball in the extra period. Niskayuna won the draw, and Goldstock fired off a shot that Robbins deflected away. The Silver Warriors took two more shots on goal before Sexton notched the game winner.

Goldstock led Niskayuna with four goals and two assists, while Tanner MacIvor contributed a hat trick. Goaltender Evan Quinn had 10 saves, though Vorgang said it wasn't Quinn's best effort of the season.

"Unfortunately for him, he's got to play better than that," said Vorgang. "But he's our best goalie, and I think he's the best goalie in the area."

Edick tallied four times to lead Shen's attack. Mike Jenkins, Brian Rogers and Joe Romano each contributed two goals, and Robbins finished the night with nine saves.

"I think it was his best game of the season," Holohan said of Robbins, who allowed 15 goals in his first game against Niskayuna on April 3. "Unfortunately, we didn't do enough to help him out."

The win gives Niskayuna a two-game lead on Shen for the Suburban Council North Division title with four league games remaining.
