GREENE – Greene waited 18 days between its final regular-season game and its first playoff game. Now, playing its third game in a month’s time, the Trojans are two wins away from their first field hockey state title in six years.
Greene (16-2) meets Section XI champion Ward Melville at 11:30 a.m. today at Chittenango High School in the New York State Class A semifinals. The winner returns to Chittenango Saturday at 10 a.m. in the championship game.
“This is kind of the same set up as 2002,” said Greene head coach Sue Carlin, who guided the Trojans to the state championship that season. “We played a Section XI team that year, and the only information we had (about the team) was a newspaper article I had read. We were successful then, and we hope we can be again.”
