Empire State Games: Saturday roundup

The Adirondack Region's women's scholastic lacrosse team lost to the Western Region, 10-11, Saturday afternoon, but a shot at history is still within reach.

Adirondack will play Central at 10:30 a.m. Sunday in the bronze medal match. The Adirondack team has never won a medal of any kind in Empire State Games play.

"I think that is the best we played as a team across the board," Adirondack coach Marylou Vosburgh said after the game on Saturday.  "Certainly, it was the best defense we played in the tournament. I am very proud of what we they did today."
