Junior attackman Kevin Cousin had game-winning goals in Somers’ wins over a pair of defending Section 1 champions — John Jay and Lakeland/Panas — last week.

Kevin Cousin did it not once, but twice.

The Somers junior attackman scored the game-winning goals in victories against two of last year’s three Section 1 champions in the span of three days.

Cousin lifted the Tuskers past Lakeland/Panas 17-16 in overtime on Saturday night after doing the same thing against John Jay 9-8 on Thursday night.

That’s among the featured items in our weekly Northeast High School Notebook for

Also included – former Yorktown star Roy Colsey beating his alma mater as Ridgefield coach, Chaminade’s rare regular-season sweep of CHSAA archrival St. Anthony’s, and Rye’s monumental win over defending FCIAC champ Greenwich, one of its biggest outside of Section 1 in school history.

    Chalk held yesterday in the NCAA’s, but I think today’s games, with the exception of ‘Cuse & Sienna, will all be barn burners…,my first upset special didn’t look too good yesterday,. but I do think Bucknell is very live today…weather perhaps a factor as well…

    • sectonedad says:

      In class A, however they end up in seedings, you must have suffern and LLP on one side of the bracket and that winner will get to face Mahopac.

    • blax says:

      Brewster is a B school

    • The Boy Who Cried Wolf says:

      Will complaing about the way seedings work change anything? No. On another note I believe that if Suffern wins against Valley Central they may be able to lock up the 1 seed.

      • ja ja ja ja johnnyy says:

        amen to that brother…with a win over valley central there should be no reason why suffern would not get the 1 seed.

  3. laxdog says:

    I don’t know how it works but, if yorktown is undefeated in B how do they not get the one seed? No big deal cause as al davis said Just Win Baby!!!!

  4. Joe Lombardi says:

    Somers – 4-5-3-4-1 =17
    Lakeland/Panas- 2-6-3-5-0 =16

    Somers scoring:

    Brett Emanuel – 2g
    Mike Ashikari – 1g
    Chris Rios – 2g
    Rob Cegielski – 1a
    Anthony Lombardo – 4g 2a

    Tony Laguerre – 3g 2a

    John DiMarco – 1g


    Michael Zingaro – 10

    • A correction says:

      Conor Prunty had one goal and two assists…Monteferante had three and two…The totals Joe has equaled 17 LP goals – they only had 16…Not that it makes any difference.

  5. Points says:

    If you do the bonus points right B should look like This

    1- Somers
    2- Yorktown
    3- JJ
    6-Tappan Zee
    7-Fox Lane

  6. ReLAX says:

    WOW..ridiculous, ludicrous “hidden ball trick” goal gives Snider the “hat trick” for MD vs UNC look for it as a “play of the day” on Sportscenter!! The cameramen & annoucers didn’t pick it up as well. SICK play!!

  7. ReLAX says:

    Coach Fed’s Bison up 4-1 on UVA 2mins left in the 1st qtr Feeney is hot in the net. Fed’s got my vote for Coach of the Year NCAA D1

    • BigBadBear says:

      you jined ’em…6 -6 at half, Section 1’s own Chris Bocklett sure can finish…

      • ReLAX says:

        I forgot Gantsoudes, Clarke & Foreit who also have contributions, but Bocklet’s 5 & Stanwick’s last two have it tied @ 12 game of the weekend!!!

        • laxbro says:

          2 unfortunate calls led to UVA’s last 2 goals to tie it in regulation. Calling that cheap down the field by the Bucknell defenseman a pass when it was really a shot at the empty net (a la that HS kid who scored the same way last week) cost Bucknell possession and led to UVA’s goal to make it 12 – 11. Then on the ensuing possession, there was a hold that wasn’t called on UVA which caused Bucknell to turn it over leading to UVA’s goal to tie it up. But I agree, definitely the game of the weekend.

          • slacrosse says:

            Cant believe Bucknell took that shot with 2+ min. left. Most likely would have won if held it. Where was the Bucknell coach on that??

          • Joe Lombardi says:

            Agree, slacrosse. They actually took one shot with just over two minutes remaining and then the one that resulted in change of possession at the 1:53 mark. You can’t score if you don’t have the ball and they gave Virginia a chance to win. I was baffled by that.

      • ReLAX says:

        Bocklet had some game & Matt White from Ridgefield wins it in OT Sect 1 & CT players come up big for UVA

  8. Big Easy says:

    You get a vote??? LOL. Agree…guy has done a nice job and that team can play!

    • ReLAX says:

      Fed’s a great guy. He’s done some job bringing in CT talent. Streep had a 3rd qtr hat trick & Heritage had the other 2nd half goal. Feeney in the nets & Bailey. He’s developed a pipeline. Dickson joins the mix next year.

  9. westchester111 says:

    isn’t it amazing that suffern gets the one seed in a over mahnopac. theres no logical explanation for this.same in b as ytwon wont get 1 seed.y is the current format used???

  10. westchester111 says:

    its amazing how ytown won’t get the one seed in b after being undefeated against jj and somers.Also, suffern being the one over mahopac is a joke

  11. Jones says:

    Think Pac is over Suffern, you guys are not adding the bonus points correctly.

  12. Lax map says:

    Does anyone know the date of the first round of varsity sectionals?

  13. The Rock says:

    Seems like Suffern playing in the sectional final at Suffern is meant to be.

  14. the boy who cried wolf says:

    It seems like everyone has different calculations…the best method to calculate would probably be to wait until the seeding meeting tuesday…just a thought

  15. Beach Lax says:

    You can’t project seeds really bc W-L record of opponents is so key you really need to wait till today’s games are finished because one loss here or there can throw the whole thing off.
