   WAYNE COUNTY (Nov 6 10) --  The Marion Girls’ soccer team, playing in brisk, cusp-of-winter weather on Friday, claimed the Section V Class C championship with a commanding, 4-0 win over the Keshequa Indians.
   Top-seeded Marion, now with a 19-1 record, meets the 17-1-2 Alexander Trojans, the Class CC champs, on Tuesday night, for the rights to enter the state championships playoff round. 
   McKenzie Beltrone led the Marion attack with a hat trick – she scored in the 28th minute with an assist from Jordan Phillips to open the game for the Black Knights. Brittan Bove made it 2-0 ten minutes later, and Beltrone got her second tally a minute after that with Taylor Dezio on the assist.
   Beltrone got an assist from Olivia Suhr to put the third score in the back of the net, in the 10th minute of the second half. Marion keeper Morgan Statt made two saves. Keshequa finishes with a 15-4-1 record. Beltrone was named the offensive player of the game and Brittani Bove was named the defensive player of the game.
   "The entire team played very well," said coach Lori DeLyser. "This win was a total team effort from the start of the game until the end of the game. Our goal was to defend as a team and attack as a team and we accomplished that goal. As a team, we needed to stop Gabrielle DiAngelo (Keshequa's leading goal scorer with 21 goals and 14 assists).  It was key not to let her be a factor in the game and defensively, we shut her down. It was a great game! I am so proud of the girls for their accomplishment of winning the Section V Girls Class C Championship Game."    
   The Marion boys’ team meets Geneseo today for the Class C Sectional crown.
               Newark Falls
   Newark’s volleyball team started the week on a high note, the sixth-seeded Lady reds surprising second-seeded Franklin, 25-9, 25-11 and 25-11 to advance to the Class BB championship against Wayne.
   “We controlled the match from the service line, recording 14 aces as a team with five aces apiece from Melissa Kline and Lindsey McEvoy,” said Newark coach matt May.  “Melissa also recorded five kills. Setters Allison Miller and Maria Croft each made six assists.” Franklin’s finished with a record of 11-7.
   On Friday, the Reds ran straight into the Wayne Eagles, a team that dispatched Newark twice during the season. And again, the Eagles were too much for Newark in a 25-14, 25-17, 25-20 match. 
   Quinn Hennessy led the 17-3 Eagles with 10 kills, 11 digs and six service aces in a well-rounded effort. Rachel Williamson led with a match-high 24 assists and co-captain Shantelle Luety contributed five kills and scooped 17 digs.
   Newark was led offensively by Sierra Graham with five kills and Melissa Kline with four kills and three aces.  Sarah Childs recorded four blocks and Maria Croft added six assists on the night.  
   "We played very tough and hard against a very talented Wayne team," said May. "Wayne made almost no mistakes on the evening and controlled the tempo of the match although Newark was in every single game. It was a great season for us to even get to the sectional finals and have a chance to play for the title."  
   Newark finishes the year with a 6-13 record. Allison Miller and Melissa Kline were named to the Class BB All-tournament team.
