LATHAM — The Schuylerville varsity boys lacrosse team captured the 2023 Section 2 Class D Championship on Friday, using a big third quarter to pull away from Stillwater/Mechanicville in an eventual 13-7 victory.

It is the second straight Section 2 Class D crown for the Black Horses, who beat Stillwater/Mechanicville 18-8 in last year’s title game. 

Sophomore Ollie Bolduc led Schuylerville with five goals and an assist, while Corbin Clements had four goals and three assists. John McGarrahan had a goal and two assists, and Landen Cumm added three assists.

Otto Bolduc had two assists, while Martin Flanders, Jr., Josh Bowen, and Logan Methven each added goals for the Black Horses.

Ollie Bolduc opened the scoring with 8:14 left in the opening quarter, giving the Black Horses a 1-0 lead. Flanders, Jr. followed with a goal just nine seconds later, winning the draw at midfield before taking it himself for a 2-0 lead.

Stillwater/Mechanicville responded with a goal by Michael Marinello, but Bolduc scored his second goal shortly after to give Schuylerville a 3-1 lead after
one quarter.

Clements scored to extend the lead to 4-1 with 6:30 until halftime. The Red Warriors’ Anthony Cocozzo cut the lead to 4-2 with 1:55 left in the half, but the Black Horses again responded, with another goal by Clements sending Schuylerville into the break with a 5-2 lead.

The Black Horses blew the game open in the third quarter, outscoring Stillwater/Mechanicville 6-1 in the frame. Bowen extended the lead to 6-2 before Bolduc’s third goal of the game made it 7-2. McGarrahan followed with a goal of his own, extending the lead to 8-2.

Marinello was able to stop the run with 5:06 left in the third, cutting Schuylerville’s lead to 8-3, but the Black Horses answered with a pair of goals by Clements, and another by Bolduc, to take an 11-3 lead into the fourth.

Marinello’s third goal made it 11-4 with 9:44 remaining, but Schuylerville responded, with goals by Methven and Bolduc extending the lead to 13-4 with 7 minutes left. 

Andrew Sgambati, Cocozzo, and Colby Paffen scored goals in the final minutes for Stillwater/Mechanicville, before Schuylerville sealed a 13-7 win and a second straight Section 2 Championship.

Schuylerville earned a 15-4 victory over James I. O’Neill High School (Section 9) in the NYSPHSAA Class D Sub-Regionals on Wednesday, and will play Pleasantville (Sec. 1) in the Regional Finals on June 3 at 5:30 p.m.
