The Willsboro Warriors grappled the top seed in Class D away from perennial power Chazy, but may have to disprove the theory that the toughest thing to do in sports is to beat a good team three times in order to capture the Section VII/Class D crown.

The Warriors (12-2-2, 10-2-2), who are led by region-leading scorer Clay Sherman (24 goals, 1 assist) and setup man Jeff Bigelow (4 goals, 13 assists) will receive a bye in the opening round of the playoffs, while the second-seeded Eagles (13-3-0, 10-2-0) will play host to the seventh-seeded Westport Eagles (0-12-0) on Friday, Oct. 28 at 5:30 p.m., who they have outscored 21-0 in their two Division II meetings. Chazy is led by Brandon Laurin’s 20 goals and seven assists, while Jordan Barriere has 11 assists to go with seven goals. Westport is led by senior Cooper Sayward, who has recorded three goals, while senior goalie Ethan Markwica has been called on to make over 100 saves in net for the Eagles.
