WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y.-In a thrilling Class B quarterfinal matchup Monday afternoon at Williamsville North Williamsville East beat North 7-6.
The game was tied when with just 6:10 remaining in the fourth quarter East's # 22 Nick Skibitsky scored what turned out to be the game winning goal. East moves into the semifinals Thursday against the winner of the Niagara Wheatfield Sweet Home game.
For the Flames # 6 Collin Greenway had two goals and two assists. Also for the Flames # 10 Brett Librock scored twice.
For the Spartans # 9 Jonathan Lunney had a goal and an assist.
East head coach Ed Greenway told Two On Your Side's Stu Boyar "I think what we saw, when you get to Sectional play, we've been talking about that one extra effort that goes a long way. We did nice job of that and it reflected from the goaltender out. Ben Rein had 16 saves. We trusted each other. There are always going to be waves, waves of adversity in lacrosse games and I was really happy with the way we handled the game."
