PAGEB4 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER17T995- PRESSREPUBLICAN - PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. pays off cotite playoff time VW «•>- . nn SI TIM REYNOLDS Staff Writer ' There's something to be said for familiarity be- tween postseason comba- tants, but, at least in the eyes of the Moriah girls soccer team, there's no better sectional weapon than a strong regular- season schedule. The Vikings play in the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference, which, since it's packed with Class B and C schools, is a far cry from the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference, composed entirely of Class D teams. j. And yes, Moriah took its lumps in Division II of the CVAC this year, posting a 4-9-3 league record — but Jim Wade's club was certainly ready for the Class D tournament. After whipping Chazy 6-2 yesterday in the semi- finals, Moriah's girls soccer team takes its 7-9-3 overall record to Seton Catholic Saturday night (5 p.m.), and will meet Westport with the Class D championship on the line. \In my eight years here, we've never been this far,\ Wade said. \We've never been to a (soccer) final here, as far as I know.\ In fact, during Wade's tenure, Moriah had never even advanced to the semifinal round. \We'd won some preliminary games, but never got past the quarterfinals until this year,\ Wade said. The key to the surge has been health. Moriah had some key personnel out early in the season, but is back at fulljpeed — and the results show the difference. \I really had high hopes in August for Division II. I thought we could make a good run at it,\ Wade said. \Injuries really took us out. And since about the end of September, we've been looking to this.\ It's a balanced attack. Offensively, Heather MacDougal and Maria Slattery — both of whom registered hat tricks yesterday — have carried the bulk of the scoring workload, but Wade said his team isn't one-dimensional. \Our halfbacks and fullbacks have been real solid at pumping the ball up to the line,\ Wade said. \It's be.en a total team effort here.\ Regional Sehtdul* Here's a tenative listing of which Section VII champions are headed where and playing whom in the first round of the state tournaments. Football: In Class B, Peru travels to Ogdensburg Friday night for a 7 p.m. kickoff to decide the Sec- tion VII-X champion. The winner of that game plays the Section II champion (either Albany Academy or Amsterdam) in the state quarterfinals, with the site yet to be determined. Saranac Lake, Section VII's Class C champion, has a bye week this week, and will travel to Queensbury High School next Saturday, Nov. 11, to face either Cambridge or Greenwich, beginning at 1 p.m. Cambridge and Greenwich, play this Saturday at Colonie at 1 p.m. In Class D, Moriah meets the Section II champi- on (Rensselaer or Warrensburg) next Friday at 7 p.m. at Ticonderoga in the state quarterfinals. Rensselaer and Warrensburg play Friday in Saratoga Springs, beginning at 7;p.m. . B^Socc«ir|l ''Se»^i^]i^^^i^lj[8t&i^}};host Sec- . in Class B, C arid D re^pnialgaines.

Girls Soccer; All Section VII champiohs play JTuesday a> Section X in regional matches, with sjtes and times still to be determined. Should any Section VII teams advance, here's the state quarterfinal breakdown: piass B would play either Section II or III, at Section X. Classes C and D would play the Section II winners, in Section II. Cross-Country: Tomorrow's Section VII champi- onships at Elizabethtown are the last hurrah for all but two boys teams, two girls teams and the top five individuals in each race, sans runners on the. winning teams. There is no cross-country regional; everyone still alive after Friday advances to next Saturday's state championships in Corning. Gymnastics: The Section VII meet is tomorrow in Ticonderoga, but, since Section VII competes in the fall instead of the winter (like the majority of the state), its state qualifiers don't compete again. until March. Swimming: Section VII's diving championships are set for Nov, 11 at 6 p.m. at Stafford Middle School in Plattsburgh, and the swimming champi- onships are Nov. 12 at 1 p.m., also at Stafford Middle School. There is no regional swimming competition; qualifiers advance directly to the state championships, to be held in Buffalo Nov, 18 arid 19. u Hop* for Fletcher? ., . • In last week's notebook, we profiled the plight of Beekmantown freshman Matt Fletcher, a male girls gymnastics team. Fletcher isn't alone in such a quest, Meet Ben Hohmann. Hohmann, 16, has been swimming with Ichabod Crane High School's (Section II-Albany) girls team since August. He will not be allowed to compete in the sectional and state girls championships, but the state Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that Hohmann could compete in the Section II boys swimming championships this spring, provided his times meet qualification requirements. \We think this is a just and fair and common sense approach,\ Guy Roemer, Hohmann's at- torney, told The Associated Press. \The bottom line is that it will allow Ben to compete.\ The settlement didn't solve all of Section IPs problems with Hohmann, however. Hohmann dominated many competitions he swam in this fall against girls, but the settlement did riot offer any decision on whether Hohmann's biological devel- opment and gender provided him with an advan- tage over females. All but one of Section IPs 15 girls swimming teams have protested Hohmann's participation. Ichabod Crane, naturally, is the lone exception. SPORTS SHORTS I !

PURPOSE CONTRACTOR PACK Duracraft By RICK WARNER AP Football Writer Poor Virginia. The Cavaliers, who have lost two games on the final play this season, now face the unenviable task of playing a second-ranked Florida State team that will be out to prove something Thursday night in Charlottesville. After being ranked No. 1 all season, the Seminoles were bumped from the top spot Sun- day by Nebraska. The slip wasn't Florida State's fault. The Seminoles just had the misfortune of not playing Satur- day, while Nebraska was im- pressing poll voters with a 44-21 victory over No. 10 Colorado. Nevertheless, the Seminoles (7-0) will certainly try to prove the pollsters wrong by playing like the nation's best team before a prime-time audience on na- tional television. And that's bad news for No. 24 Virginia (6-3), which already has had its share of bad luck. The Cavaliers' three defeats have come by a total of seven points, including one-point losses to Michigan and Texas on the final play. It won't get any easier against Florida State. The Seminoles are 29-0 against Atlantic Coast Con- ference opponents since joining the league and are beating ACC foes by an average of 42.8 points this year. The Cavaliers (plus 18 MO can only hope the Seminoles are in a charitable mood. FLORIDA ST. 42-17 SATURDAY Iowa St. (plus 40) at No. 1 Nebraska Lawrence Phillips returns fpr Huskers.
