Kelsie is playing indoor soccer and scored in tonights game.
Found this picture of Kameron: Mynderse guard Brandon Passalacqua and Clyde-Savannah’s Kam DiSanto battle for possession as Mynderse’s Jason Anderson and Clyde-Savannah’s Joemaine Bogan (23) look on.
Mynderse Academy defeated Clyde-Savannah on Monday night in Waterloo by a score of 66-50 to advance to face Lyons High in the Section V Class C State Qualifier at the Blue Cross Arena.
As the game tipped, the frenetic play on the court immediately matched the atmosphere in the gymnasium as both teams pressed and played 90 feet out of the gate. Clyde’s athletic big man Joemaine Bogan scored first on a transition lay-up and Mynderse junior small forward Jason Anderson immediately answered with a transition layup of his own. Both teams where on the board and continued to trade turnovers and transition buckets until Jimmy Ricci buried a corner three to make the score 8-4.
Coach Mike Fields’ Mynderse front court duo of Conner Miller and Luke Ruddy faced stiff opposition at the rim early as Kam DiSanto and Bogan turned back multiple shots in the paint sparking transition opportunities for Clyde.
It was the steady of play of the Blue Devil’s senior point guard Brandon Passalacqua that eventually helped Mynderse build and maintain the lead throughout the game. Passalacqua finished with a team-high 16 points, 8 assists, and 6 steals scoring most of his points in the paint with nifty hooks and runners tossed in after avoiding multiple Clyde defenders with his dribble. The Mynderse Class of 2012 valedictorian was in full control of the ball and his team’s offense. After some early struggles with Clyde-Savannah’s full court press, Passalacqua settled in and broke the pressure consistently leading to transition scores and solid half-court sets.
Passalacqua set up Jimmy Ricci for a pair of early three pointers and found sophomore Liam Caraher for another first quarter trifecta. Ricci finished with 12 points on four three pointers.
The teams exchanged blows, and the lead, throughout the first half as Clyde countered the hot outside shooting of Mynderse with bombs of their own from guards Faniel, Sharp and Molisanti. Clyde senior and 1,000 point scorer Tom Kanaley knifed through the lane for a lay-up to give Clyde the lead with just over 5:00 mins left in the 2nd quarter. It would be the last time the Golden Eagles would lead.
Passalacqua scored on the next two possession for Mynderse on a baby-hook runner and a pull up from five feet and then Ricci buried another three to put Mynderse up 29-23 with 26 seconds left in the half.
Joemaine Bogan stepped out to knock down a three pointer as the 2nd quarter concluded to pull Clyde within 3 points and Mynderse took a narrow 29-26 lead into halftime.
Bogan also notched the first points of the second half on a lay-up after a run out but then junior big man Luke Ruddy began to have his way.
Ruddy knocked down two free throws, scored on a fast break, and scored again on a nice pass from Passalacqua to help Mynderse to a 38-31 lead midway through the 3rd quarter.
Then, an unlikely scoring run from reserve center Jared Coffee who scored six straight in the paint for Mynderse that helped the Blue Devils maintain their margin before another Jimmy Ricci three built the lead to 10 to end the 3rd quarter.
Mynderse wouldn’t look back as Clyde’s pressure wasn’t effective against the cool-headed Passalacqua and Ruddy. Mynderse would eventually cruise to a 66-50 victory and a date with another old-school rival in Rochester on Wednesday night.
Luke Ruddy would finish with 12 point and 12 rebounds while junior Jason Anderson finished with 12 points.
For Clyde-Savannah, Joemaine Bogan led all scorers with 18 points while Kam DiSanto added 10 points and 5 blocked shots.

Remember, Clyde Savannah (Class C3 Champions) against Mynderse Academy (Class C1 Champions), Monday, 3/4/13 at Waterloo HS @ 7:00 pm.
What’s up with you!
Clyde-Savannah used a stifling interior defense that held their opponent to 18% shooting and an impressive transition game to roll over Kendall, 72-28, to claim the Class C3 championship. It was never a contest with the Golden Eagles opening up a 34-14 halftime lead and extending that lead to 50-22 at the end of the third. C-S shot 50% on the game knocking down wide open jump shots and finishing several times uncontested at the rim.
C-S big man Joemaine Bogan was dominant notching 22 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocked shots. He also brought the early arriving Blue Cross Arena to their feet with a two-handed slam dunk on a breakaway in the third quarter.
Junior forward Kam DiSanto was active all game and finished with 11 points and nine rebounds. DiSanto was also a factor in the paint sparking several Clyde fast breaks with his disruptive defense.
Joe Faniel also scored 11 as Clyde captures their first Sectional Championship since 2000 and their ninth in school history.
Clyde-Savannah is now 19-2 on the season and will face Mynderse Academy (Class C1 Champions) in the Class C Qualifier play-in game on Monday. If they should win, they would face their fellow Wayne County League co-champ, Lyons in the Class C State Qualifier game on Wednesday.
Clyde-Savannah Senior Tom Kanaley was named Tournament MVP despite missing the entire second half of the contest with a knee injury. Kam DiSanto and Joemaine Bogans were named to the Class C3 all-tournament team.
Clyde Savannah won 72-28 against Kendall. Will play one of the winners of Class C-1 (
Avon or Mynderse) or C-2 ( York or Lyons) next week at State.
Kameron (who played sick) was chosen for the tournament team. (Players with medals). Great job Kameron!
