JC 20, Oneonta 7

Sam Sherrill and Jake Crotser had two goals apiece, but host Oneonta High fell in the Section Four Lacrosse Conference.

Nick Naferis had seven goals and two assists for Johnson City. He scored six of the Wildcats' eight second-quarter goals as JC took a 14-4 lead into halftime.

"He's a heck of a player for them," OHS coach Jeff Armer said of Naferis.

Mitchell Spaziani, Will Smith and Nick Giacomelli also scored for the Yellowjackets (5-9), who just missed qualifying for sectionals.

"There are a lot of positives to take away from the season," Armer said. "A lot of guys improved by leaps and bounds. Joe Sherrill had more than 200 saves and did a fantastic job for us. Our team defense came along, and we had outstanding years from Sam Sherril and Jeremy Leary. All around, a lot of different guys stepped up for us."
