Boys' lacrosse: Section II tournament starts today

Schenectady will be among the six lacrosse teams in action today when the Section II tournament open

Schenectady will be among the six lacrosse teams in action today when the Section II tournament opens with first-round games.

Pairings for the three classes were released Friday, with Suburban Council North Division runner-up Shenendehowa (13-3, Class A), SC North champion Niskayuna (16-0, Class B) and Foothills Council runner-up Glens Falls (6-5, Class C) gaining the top seeds.

Niskayuna has dropped down based on enrollment after winning the Class A banner last season and advancing to the state semifinals.

Schenectady (No. 10 seed, 4-12) will play at Bethlehem (No. 7, 4-12), and LaSalle (No. 9, 4-11) will play at Columbia (No. 8, 3-13) in Class A games today. Troy (No. 9, 2-14) will travel to Amsterdam (No. 8, 9-7) for a Class B contest.

Each of today’s 11 a.m. games are rematches from the regular season. Bethlehem beat Schenectady, 7-3; Columbia topped LaSalle, 9-4; and Amsterdam defeated Troy twice by 8-4 and 9-0 counts. Schenec­tady’s last playoff win came against Bethlehem in the 2011 first round, 14-10.

Tournament quarterfinal games are Monday (Class C) and Tuesday (Class A, Class B). Semifinals are Wednesday (Class C) and Thursday (Class A, Class B). All three championships are a week from today at the University at Albany.

Queensbury (No. 6, 10-6) won the Class B title last season, and Glens Falls claimed its third straight Class C crown.
