Knights looking forward to seeing Class A bracket Tuesday

Cohoes defeated Lansingburgh 1-0 in the Colonial Council boys soccer finale on a sloppy Alumni Field, but the Knights are still thinking big with the Section II soccer postseason schedule to be released Tuesday afternoon.

Lansingburgh, which finished in third place in the Colonial Council regular season, is likely to earn the No. 3 overall seed in the Class A tournament and could possibly secure a first round bye - something that hasn't happened in Lansingburgh in quite some time.

Lansingburgh senior goalkeeper Josh Wangler can't bear to look as a teammate leaps over his head during Monday's match at Cohoes. The Tigers won, 1-0, but the Knights are practically assured the No. 3 overall seed in the Section II Class A tournament. (Photos by J.S. Carras - The Record).

Charlie Casey, with six goals scored, is the leading scorer and captain of the selfless Knights offense.

"We share the wealth," Casey said. "Whoever is there can take it. Not one person on this team is selfish. We share our goals."

Wangler looks upfield after making a save Monday afternoon in Cohoes. It is his first season playing goal on the varsity level after switching for his typical midfielder position, although he did earn some experience between the pipes at the modified and junior varsity levels.

"That is tough to do," said Lansingburgh head coach Ed Classen. "He has come up as a field player and turning into a goalie is a tough transition. He just had the best game all year (a 1-1 tie against Voorheesville Thurs 10/22). He was nervous with a couple of things, but he’s getting more and more confidence in his play."

Lansingburgh head boys soccer coach Ed Classen watches the action Monday afternoon at Cohoes. He is in his eighth year with the program - fifth at the varsity level - and coached many of the current class of seniors as seventh graders as the Knights' modified level coach six years ago.

The Knights finished 6-12 a season ago and earned the No. 12 seed in the Class A playoffs. They, however, defeated No. 5 Ichabod Crane in the opening round.
This year, Lansingburgh opened with losses to South Glens Falls and La Salle - by a combined score of 11-1 - but rebounded with a strong season in Colonial Council play (8-3-3).

"Everyone had their doubts about us because we lost Zach Fane, who was seen as our star player, and they didn’t think we could do anything without him," Wangler said. "Just about every senior on the team believed that because we had an alright season last year as juniors, almost as a full junior squad, and coming back as seniors with almost a full senior squad, was definitely helpful."
