Sunday Sports: St. Lawrence Central unveils new turf

BRASHER FALLS, N.Y. (WWNY) - One of the smallest schools in Section 10 opened their brand new turf field Friday night.

The project at St. Lawrence Central School came in under budget, which allowed the school to add bleachers and a press box.

St. Lawrence Central hosted O.F.A. on the gridiron at Randy Riggs field, the first ever night football game hosted by the school.

"Football is gonna be played on Friday night. We'll probably play a day game every other year or so as our Hall of Fame game, but football will be Friday nights now," said Coach Joey Reome, "That's kinda cool for us cause Aaturday's are a long day for the people that are involved with football."

In men's college soccer from Jefferson Community College Sunday afternoon, the Cannoneers hosted Corning.

In the1st half J.C.C. got on the board as Sadike Dubia takes the feed from Sebby Mastin and dents the back of the net, putting the Cannoneers go on top 1-0. The Cannoneers go on to beat Corning 3-2.

Earlier in the day, the J.C.C. women also played host to Corning. In the1st half, J.C.C. was down 3-0 when Calleigh Thomas found the mark, cutting the Corning lead to 3-1. But J.C.C. falls to Corning by a final score of 7-1.

The Victory Athletics Organization held a girls' basketball showcase Sunday inside the gym at the McVean Athletic Center at Jefferson Community College.

High school age players from Rochester, Buffalo, Albany, the Mohawk Valley region and Northern New York took part with coaches from central and northern New York in attendance.

The event is the first of it's kind in the area.

"This is new to Northern New York and it's something that's been needed for a long time and Sybil Stanton, our girls' director of basketball, has decided to do that and she's gotten off to a great start with it," said Victory Athletics President, Mike Lennox.

“If you want to take it to the next level you have to be at stuff like this. You have to be educating yourself, you have to be out there just doing what you can to learn more about the game of basketball and about your health and fitness on and off the court,” said Stanton.
