In the third quarter - they knot it up with t-j elsenbeck finding zach ellingson open with his d-man sliding.

On the girls side - a day after the whitesboro warriors dispatched their rival new hartford - tonight they close out the regular season trying to get to .500 against central valley academy.

They add to it.
Good look in front from madison davis to samantha decondo who puts it top shelf.
It's 19-4 warriors.

That senior chemistry in full effect late in the season.

Great goal - even better celebration.
Handshake - that's callahan with madison keida - good stuff ladies!
--- the thunder do put one more up on the board thanks to reilly rich late in the game... ...but the warriors offense really clicking as they close
