Warriors recover from 5-0 defeat to Cazenovia

Neither of the two regular-season games between the Liverpool and Cicero-North Syracuse field hockey team this fall ended in regulation.

In their own unique ways, the Liverpool and Baldwinsville girls soccer teams left Tuesday night's showdown equally surprised by the 2-2 outcome.

Though not in the state Class A rankings, the Liverpool girls cross country team has enough quality to it that it can match, or top, just about any opponent in the CNY Counties League.

Warriors thwarted in CBA showdown

Short-handed defense struggles in second half

In one evening – really, in just one half of football – Liverpool went from the prohibitive Section III Class AA favorite to someone who may have to prove itself all over again. That was the effect of the Warriors’ 28-17 defeat to Christian Brothers Academy Friday night in a jam-packed LHS Stadium. Up by a field goal at halftime, Liverpool suddenly found itself short-handed on defense, and the Brothers, pounding away with a deep, versatile ground game, took full advantage.
