Back-and-forth battle could provide playoff preview
Can a game with a 3-2 score be considered a win for both sides? Perhaps so, in the case of Thursday night's girls soccer battle between Cicero-North Syracuse and Baldwinsville, for though the Northstars prevailed by that 3-2 margin, the Bees could leave Archie Hall Stadium convinced that, if they met again in the Section III Class AA playoffs, the result could prove different.
Northstars top Nottingham, Henninger; Warriors earn playoff spot
Going into the final week of the regular season, there was little doubt that the Cicero-North Syracuse boys soccer team was primed for a championship push – and Liverpool wanted those same good feelings, too, before it got too late.
When Dan Elliott reminisces about Syracuse’s History of Rock’n’Roll at Liverpool Library this week, I hope he’ll tell the story of guitarist Ron Lauback, who influenced the formation of rock bands like Elliott’s own Monterays. Ron was born on Sept. 11, 1942 in Syracuse, to George and Helen Lauback. His mom, Helen, taught music teacher in the 1940s in the East Syracuse school district, and so young Ron was exposed to jazz, classical and pop music as a child. Ron’s first musical instrument was a ukulele.

Northstars win in long-awaited return to home field
Much of the Cicero-North Syracuse field hockey team's 2014 season was spent traveling elsewhere, as it played 10 consecutive road games while waiting for the new Field Turf at Bragman Stadium to get finished. At last, though, the turf was ready, and on Monday night the Northstars came back home in the sweetest way possible, recording a 1-0 victory over its neighbor and rival, Liverpool.
When Linda Dwyer looked at her business classes at Cicero-North Syracuse High School, she thought something was off-kilter. “I noticed that most of my classes were male-dominated,” Dwyer said. In fact, one of her class sections doesn’t have a single female student. In an effort to jumpstart C-NS girls’ interest in business, Dwyer applied for and won the “E-Girls: Empowering Girls through Entrepreneurship” grant from the North Syracuse Education Foundation. She received about $1,400 to give 40 girls a taste of entrepreneurship.
Liverpool scores twice in final 5:31, go to 5-0
Even at this stage at what is shaping up as a memorable and possibly magical season, it's too early to say if the Liverpool football team will cast aside its 16-year sectional championship drought. But if it does, the Warriors are sure to look back to what happened late Friday night at Alibrandi Stadium as the pivot point where a good team showed something deeper.
Just as the Nazi genocide resulted in the wholesale murder of millions of innocent Jews, Gypsies, Poles and homosexuals, gendercide now takes millions of female lives in the country of China.

Warriors' last-minute comeback builds crucial momentum
With one defeat to Cicero-North Syracuse in the recent memory bank, and a rematch on the new turf at Bragman Stadium looming a week ahead, the Liverpool field hockey team wanted, at the least, a good performance out of Monday night's home game against Class C powerhouse. But it had no idea just how good - or memorable - it would be.
Have you signed up to be chased by zombies yet? The second annual Hallowrun for Hunger will take place at 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, at the Aspen Shelter at Oneida Shores.

She was at 38 and a half weeks,”’ said Audrey Gangloff, Jaclyn’s mother-in-law and former Gillette Road Middle School principal. “She’d just been to the doctor on Thursday [March 13], and everything was fine. On Friday [March 14], her water broke. They got to the hospital, thinking they’re having the baby, and there’s no heartbeat.”
