2017 Section 9 girls tennis round of 16, quarterfinal results

Washingtonville freshman Jalynn Balleste rolled into the Section 9 semifinals, dropping just one game in two matches at Match Point Tennis in Goshen.

Unseeded Ali Dratch and Bianca Harris of Valley Central, who knocked off second-seeded Isabelle Goings-Perrot and Riddhi Patel of Newburgh Free Academy in the quarterfinals, play Warwick’s Uliana Kitar and Stephanie Menoutis in the other semifinal.

High school football playoff scenarios as of Oct. 9

By Ken McMillan
Times Herald-Record

There are 34 varsity football teams in Section 9 and 28 make the playoffs. Ridiculous? Yes, but don’t tell that to the kids who still dream of making the state tournament.
Twenty spots have been clinched. Headed into the final weekend of the regular season, there are eight teams battling for four playoff spots, split evenly between Classes B and C. Just about every seeding position is up for grabs, though, with just Ellenville in Class C Division 1 and Millbrook in Class D having clinched titles.
Pride, and regular-season championship trophies, are up for grabs in four head-to-head matchups: Cornwall and Port Jervis in Class A; Marlboro and New Paltz in Class B-1; Spackenkill and James I. O’Neill in Class B-2; and, Burke Catholic and Chester in Class C-2. Wins by Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick also secure division championships without having to dive into complicated tie-breaks.
The scenarios:

Class AA Division 1 – Monroe-Woodbury clinches Division 1 with a road win at Pine Bush on Friday.
A three-way tie for first place at 3-1 will exist if Pine Bush prevails and Newburgh beats underdog Middletown. Monroe-Woodbury would need to lose by 11 points-or-fewer to secure the top spot, with Newburgh taking second with a previous win over Pine Bush. If Monroe lost by 12-or-more points, then Newburgh takes top spot, followed by Pine Bush, Monroe and Middletown.
If Pine Bush wins and Middletown upsets Newburgh, then the Bushmen win first, Monroe would be second, Middletown third and Newburgh fourth.
If Pine Bush loses and Middletown upsets Newburgh, a three-way tie for second place at 2-2 will exist. If Newburgh loses by 14-or-fewer, the Goldbacks take second, Pine Bush is third and Middletown fourth. If the Goldbacks lose by 15-or-more, then Middletown takes second, Newburgh is third and Pine Bush fourth.

Class AA Division 2 – Warwick wins outright with win at Valley Central, which is no easy task. A Valley Central win, with a Washingtonville loss at defense-minded Minisink Valley, gives the Vikings the title and leaves Warwick second, Minisink third and Washingtonville fourth.
Wins by VC and Washingtonville leave a three-way tie for first at 2-1. Warwick secures first with a setback of 7-or-fewer points, with Washingtonville second and VC third. A Warwick setback of 8-or-more points puts Washingtonville first, VC second and Warwick third.
A Warwick win at VC and Minisink win over Washingtonville forges a three-way tie for second at 1-2. Minisink wins the tie-break for second, Washingtonville would be third and Valley Central fourth.

Class A – It’s winner-take-all on Friday night as Cornwall (5-0 division) plays at Port Jervis (4-1), with a quarterfinal bye and semifinal home game ahead. Cornwall can finish no lower than second, thus earning a quarterfinal bye and semifinal home game. A loss by Port and a Goshen home win over Monticello on Saturday would give Goshen the second seed and bye and drop Port Jervis into third with a home quarterfinal vs. Monticello on Oct. 20.
A Goshen win puts the Gladiators in second or third. A Goshen loss and Saugerties setback at winless Wallkill would give Roosevelt third and Goshen fourth. A Goshen loss and Saugerties win forges a three-way tie at 3-3; Saugerties would be third, Roosevelt fourth and Goshen fifth.
Saugerties owns a tie-break over Monticello for fifth and sixth.

Class B-1 – It’s winner-take-all on Friday night as Marlboro visits New Paltz, both 2-0 teams. The winner gets a home semifinal on Oct. 27. The loser settles for second place and a home quarterfinal on Oct. 20.
Rondout Valley visits Red Hook, both 0-2 teams, on Saturday with the winner securing the third-place playoff berth and the loser awaiting crossover games to finish.

Class B-2 – It’s winner-take-all on Friday night as Spackenkill visits James I. O’Neill, both 2-0 teams. The winner gets a home semifinal on Oct. 27. The loser settles for second place and a home quarterfinal on Oct. 20.
Liberty visits Highland, both 0-2 teams, on Friday night with the winner securing the third-place playoff berth and the loser awaiting crossover games to finish.

Class C-1 – Ellenville earned its first playoff berth since 2012 and clinched its first regular-season title since 2009. Even with a loss to Onteora on Saturday, the Blue Devils own tie-breaks having beaten both Dover and Pine Plains. The Blue Devils get a quarterfinal bye and home semifinal on Oct. 27.
The winner of the Dover at Pine Plains game on Friday gets second place and a home quarterfinal on Oct. 20. The loser gets third place and a road quarterfinal on Oct. 20.

Class C-2 – It’s winner-take-all on Friday night as Burke Catholic visits Chester, both 2-0 teams. The winner gets a home semifinal on Oct. 27. The loser settles for second place and a home quarterfinal on Oct. 20.
Roscoe visits Tri-Valley, both 0-2 teams, on Saturday with the winner securing the third-place playoff berth and the loser awaiting crossover games to finish.

Class D – Millbrook already beat Eldred for the Class D regular-season title. The teams meet again on Nov. 5 for the sectional championship.
