New York state tournament final brackets, scores by round

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — The final score was nearly identical to last year’s New York Class C state title game between Cazenovia and Bronxville, but there was one big difference in the teams’ latest meeting. This time, Bronxville prevailed, defeating the Lakers 13-10 at Hofstra University on Saturday afternoon for its first-ever state title.

The Broncos fell to Cazenovia, 13-11, in the 2013 state title game.

Johns Hopkins-bound junior attackman Henry Grass was named most valuable offensive player, registering two goals and five assists. Princeton-bound junior Charlie Tarry was the game’s most valuable defensive player.

Bronxville (18-6) outscored Cazenovia 5-1 in the fourth quarter to pull out the win. Bronxville’s Matt Behrens (three goals, one assist) scored what proved to be the game-winner, turning and drilling home a blast off a restart to give the Broncos an 11-10 lead with 7:17 remaining in the game.  Michael Crawford (three goals, one assist) made it 12-10 four minutes later off a Grass feed. Bronxville closed out the scoring on Providence College-bound Will Duncan’s second goal of the game.

Groundballs were a key factor in the Bronxville win. The Broncos dominated in that department 51-31, with Owen Jones leading the way with eight, followed by James McDermott (seven) and Behrens (five). Jones was also key on faceoffs, with Bronxville winning 17 of 27.
