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. The only thing that matters was that no whistle was blown.

Caz football gets three TD's from Connellan
Having done their parts for the past six weeks, the undefeated football teams from Cazenovia and Oneida are ready to decide the Class B East regular-season championship on Friday night.

Trio of wins lead to rematch with Westhill next Saturday
