Morristown 3, Hammond 0: Three unassisted goals launched the 12-3 Rockets into the next round as Luke King produced a 10 save shutout.
We played well at times and then we went back to playing kickball, said Morristown coach George Beaulieau. But I really believe Devin Dulmage had his best game of the season today and Karter VanArnam, Colton Colby and Tyler Delosh played solid defense. Weve got Parishville-Hopkinton next and they are always tough to beat.
James Richards scored unassisted in the 21st, Ryan Vollmer connected in the 40th and Dulmage blasted home a kick from 30 yards out that grazed off a Hammond player into the net in the 61st minute for the Rockets.
Nick Jewitt made 23 saves for Hammond (4-12-1).
Heuvelton 2, SRF 1: In the 102nd minute of play, Lucas Brown scored the game winning goal for the Bulldogs (6-9-2).Brown worked his way into the crease from the leftside and sent a shot into the far corner of the goal.
We played pretty well but we know Madrid-Waddington is going to a tough opponent next, said Heuvelton coach David Steele.
Ryan Duquette of St. Regis Falls and Will Tennant of Heuvelton traded first half goals. Zach Lashomb made eight saves for Heuvelton. Mike Smith stopped 12 shots for the Saints (4-9-2).
P-H 4, C-F 0: It was all Wyatt Snell and Preston Frank for the Panthers who improved to 11-3-3. Snell scored in the 11th minute from Frank and Frank connected unassisted in the 34th for a 2-0 lead at halftime.
In the second half, just 56 seconds in, Frank scored from Snell. Snell followed unassisted in the 47th minute.
Kobe Wells had one save for P-H. Jordan Planty had 15 saves for C-F (0-16-1).
Lisbon 4, H-D 1: Two goals by Adam Kelley 56 seconds apart in the 8th minute of play sparked the 13-2-2 Golden Knights.
We came out and played really well in the first 15 minutes but didnt keep it up the rest of the first half. We started off well in the second half but have to play more consistently on Saturday, said LCS coach Bill Reed.
It should be a very good game. The team that makes the least mistakes will win.
Cameron Hance scored from Reilly ODonnell in the 33rd minute for Hermon-DeKalb (4-12-1).
Kolby Jordan scored from Kane Jordan in the 43rd and Ryan Mason converted the rebound of a hard Coleman Smith shot in 72nd minute.
Jimmy Robinson made three saves in the first 70 minutes of play and Nick Spooner stopped one shot in relief. Zach Robinson made 15 saves for H-D.
E-K 0, C-P 0 (E-K wins shootout): Neither teams could generate any scoring in regulation and overtime and the Cougars advanced with a 4-3 penalty kick edge.
Kaden Dandrow made seven saves for the 7-7-2 Cougars and also scored a penalty kick. Hunter Tuttle, Derrick Clark and Abe White also connected with Whites being declared the game-winner.
Bruce Avery stopped 10 shots for the Colts (4-10-3) and scored on a penalty kick with Riley Doyle and Noah Whalen.
