Tuesday, October 30
Shaker/CBA at S1 Shenendehowa, 3 p.m.
Colum/LSI vs. Sch/Beth at higher seed, 3 p.m.
Troy/G'land vs. Nisky/Amst at higher seed, 3 p.m.
S'toga/Albany vs. CCHS/Colonie at higher seed, 3 p.m.
Thursday, November 1 at Colonie, 5&7 p.m.
Tuesday, November 6 at Colonie, 5 p.m.
Bracket Analysis: Shenendehowa and then the rest of the field - at least that's what it's looked like. Colonie, Guilderland and Bethlehem are all strong. Niskayuna usually plays well in the postseason. Let's see if some Big 10 teams can post some victories in this tradtionally lopsided matchup.
Wednesday, October 24
No. 9 Bishop Gibbons at No. 8 Lansingburgh (Thursday), 3 p.m.
No. 11 Hudson Falls at No. 6 Gloversville, 5 p.m.
No. 10 Averill Park at No. 7 Mohonasen, 7 p.m.
Saturday, October 27
BG/Burgh at No. 1 Albany Academy, 2 p.m.
No. 5 Glens Falls at No. 4 Burnt Hills, 2 p.m.
HudF/Glov at No. 3 South Glens Falls, 2 p.m.
Mohon/AP at No. 2 Scotia, 2 p.m.
Thursday, November 1 at Queensbury (both at 2:30)
Monday, November 5 at Colonie, 7 p.m.
Bracket Analysis: Albany Academy has gone through the regular season undefeated and is the No. 1 team in New York State, so they are obviously the team to beat. That being said, Burnt Hills is always tough as Scotia and South High will be.

(Friday 10/26 at Saturday 10/27 at higher seed)
Wednesday, October 31 at Johnstown, 5 & 7 p.m.
Saturday, November 3 at Colonie, 6 p.m.
Bracket Analysis: Chatham is definitely the top team, but I could see Wasaren teams Tamarac or Schuylerville both winning.
Thursday, October 25
No. 9 Corinth at No. 8 Hoosick Falls, 3 p.m.
No. 11 Berne-Knox at No. 6 Greenwich, 3 p.m.
No. 10 Mechanicville at No. 7 Saratoga Catholic, 3 p.m.

HooFalls/Corinth at No. 1 Galway, Sat. 2 p.m.
No. 5 Voorheesville at No. 4 Lake George, Thurs. 3 p.m.
B-K/Green at No. 3 Schenectady Christian, Fri. 3 p.m.
Spa/Mech'ville at No. 2 Stillwater, Sat. 2 p.m.
Wednesday, October 31 at Morse Complex, Glens Falls, 3 p.m.
Saturday, November 3 at Colonie, 2 p.m.
Bracket Analysis: Galway is the top team and for good reason as they are ranked the top team in the state. Stillwater should be well-tested after winning the Wasaren League. Those are the top two teams, everyone else will be chasing them.
Wednesday, October 24
No. 9 Salem at No. 8 Hadley-Luzerne, 3 p.m.
No. 10 Duanesburg at No. 7 Mayfield, 3 p.m.
Quarterfinals (Thursday 10/25, Friday 10/26 and Saturday 10/27)
Sal/H-L at No. 1 Maple Hill, Fri. 3 p.m.
No. 5 Middleburgh at No. 4 Berlin, Thurs. 3 p.m.
No. 6 Schoharie at No. 3 Waterford, Fri. 3 p.m.
May/Duane at No. 2 Fort Plain, Sat. 2 p.m.
Tuesday, October 30 at Johnstown, 5 & 7 p.m.
Saturday, November 3 at Colonie, 12 p.m
Bracket Analysis: Maple Hill has a strong season and they're the defending state champions, but they did graduate a lot of players from last year and that makes them vulnerable. Can this still win? Oh yeah, but look out for Fort Plain, Berlin and Waterford.
Wednesday, October 24
No. 9 St. Johnsville at No. 8 Hartford, 3 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 25, Friday, Oct. 26 and Saurday, Oct. 27
St. J/Hart at No. 1 North Warren, Sat. 2 p.m.
No. 5 New Lebanon at No. 4 Fort Ann, Fri. 2 p.m.
No. 6 Northville at No. 3 Argyle, Thurs. 3 p.m.
No. 2 Loudonville Christian at No. 7 Sharon Springs, Fri at N. Colonie, 3 p.m.
Tuesday, October 30 at Morse Field, Glens Falls, 3 p.m.
Saturday, November 3 at Colonie, 4 p.m.
Bracket Analysis: I have to admit I don't know too much about these teams, but Loudonville Christian is always good and North Warren is the top seed, so I would expect them to get to the semis at least.
