On Saturday the Lansing Bobcats began their run for a state championship against the Odessa-Montour Indians. The game was played at Ithaca College's Higgins Stadium due to a civil service exam occupying Lansing's home field for the day.

The Bobcats came out with an expectation to win and did just that. While it took a few minutes for Lansing to score, when that first goal came, it was sublime. Captain Josh Zajac tracked down a ball that was going over the end-line to keep it in play. He cut it back and drove in a cross with his left. Taylor Overton was at the near-post to flick the ball in with his head. Lansing went up 1-0 and never looked back.

Lansing's cross-country squads headed up I-81 on Saturday Oct 14 for the Tully Invitational, a regional meet that drew almost 20 schools from Tompkins County to Syracuse and Watertown.

The Bobcats modified teams shined against some of central New York's best middle school runners as they competed on their longest course of the season (at 1.72 miles, a farther distance than their previous races from 1.25 to 1.6 miles). In the modified girls' race for small schools, Lansing's Kinsley Jacobs used a strong start to take the lead, and then battled through the second half of the race alongside Tully's Katie Edinger. With about a quarter mile to go, Jacobs made a decisive move to grab the lead and never looked back to take the first win of the day. Jacobs' time of 9:52.3 was the fastest girls modified time of the day, besting the large school times by more than 30 seconds. Loveta Geesey also ran a strong race for the modified Lady Bobcats and finished 60th out of 76 runners.

Summertime temperatures made a strong comeback in the third week of the cross-country season, with Lansing Bobcat racers experiencing the hottest running conditions since team practices began way back in early August. Even so, Lansing continued to rack up impressive team finishes in the past week, with a couple of Bobcats taking first-place in their respective divisions.

Last Saturday, Sept. 23, the Bobcat XC teams boarded a bus at 6:30 a.m. for the ride down to the Owego Cross-Country Invitational at Pheasant Hills Country Club. The golf course provided a beautiful backdrop with rolling forested hills, but that topography also played into the terrain for a race course with the most challenging climbs Lansing has seen all year. Throw in above-average temps hovering in the mid-80s, and the race became an endurance challenge.

The place to be Saturday night was at Charles O Dickens High School watching the Lansing Bobcats take on the Trumansburg Raiders under the lights on Tarbell Field. In what was billed as the game of the weekend, this one did not disappoint. Trumansburg kicked off and away we went.

Ten minutes in Lansing had its first real chance from a great penetrating cross by Captain Josh Zajac. After a pass back from striker Taylor Overton, Zajac put a long cross in behind Trumansburg's left back to where right midfielder Langston Hopkins could use his speed to beat the defender. He did just that, took a touch towards goal, but went wide left with his shot.

Coming off a two-game split in the Oneonta Festival this weekend where the Bobcats fell to Goshen and beat Cincinnatus, Lansing won its home opener against Newark Valley. Playing their third game in a row, the Bobcats came out a little slow. Going about their game plan Lansing controlled the ball in the midfield, but couldn't find the final connection for a goal. The Cardinal's defense kept the crosses from finding the correct head and didn't allow many clean shots from the middle of the field. Newark Valley's keeper, made numerous diving saves, even pushing one up to hit the crossbar and out.

Cross after cross got rejected or headed out, until Lansing midfielder Langston Hopkins rose above his defender to head in the game's first goal on a beautiful cross by Lansing Miller. A few minutes later the Bobcats would add to their lead on a shot by Aidan Huslebosch that took its time rolling over the line and another on a corner kick that was cleaned up by sophomore Joe Besemer.
