Rout of Skaneateles sets up sectional semifinal against Westhill

Monds scores with 10 seconds left on controversial tally
Jayanna Monds was offsides by several yards, as far as the Cazenovia girls soccer team was concerned. Westhill, on the other hand, thought that Monds had perfectly timed her run.

For the first time in about six months, the Cazenovia Village Board of Trustees monthly meeting had no controversial topics on the agenda, no public hearings and no crowds of concerned spectators filling the board meeting room.
