In a topsy-turvy boys soccer season where Westhill and Marcellus were both once ranked in the state Class B top five, it was Skaneateles finding itself at no. 13 in last week’s state poll, with the Warriors and Mustangs both unranked.For the Lakers, the first test as a ranked team in 2019 was on Senior Night against visiting Chittenango, and it was quite nervous at times, but Skaneateles did enough to defeat the Bears 2-0.As so many other times this season, it was Tylar Moss, getting the Lakers in front. Off a feed from Brendan Powers, Moss dribbled around a Chittenango defender and putting a low shot past Will Simmons in the 15th minute. The Lakers nearly built on that margin, only to have owers twice denied by great stops from Simmons. Then the Bears’ Sean Larsson nearly tied it twice, slightly off target on a free kick and having another shot bang off the crossbar.So it was still 1-0 when, less than five minutes into the second half, Owen Chaney was left alone near the net and, taking a pass from Moss, doubled the Lakers’ margin.In Thursday’s battle with Cazenovia, Skaneateles again scored twice, but the visiting Lakers, led by forward Joe Spires, constantly burned the defense and ended up prevailing by a 4-2 margin.
