The game was in doubt in the first half as visiting Rush-Henrietta
came out fired up, winning face offs and many ground balls,
while taking a 2-0 first quarter lead. The Webster Schroeder
Warriors, who have been playing the role of giant killers
lately, came back in the second quarter and finished the
half up 4-2 behind three goals from Tom Costanza.
Rush-Henrietta opened up the scoring in the first with
a goal from Tony Henriquez (assisted by Brian McShea).
Schroeder responded 34 seconds later with a goal from
Costanza (assisted by Grant Catalino) at 9:06. It was
the first of Costanza's 5g game. Jack Mooney added another
goal at 7:43 to give Schroeder a one goal edge. R-H tied
it at two when Matt Moran found Justin Rose for an extra
man goal with 3:20 remaining in the first quarter.

Henriquez's second goal with an assist from Sam Hillmon.
This gave RH a brief lead until Costanza scored 21 seconds
later. Schroeder scored with 0:59 seconds remaining to
take the 4-3 half time lead.
The Warriors came out in the third with the first two
goals at 7:55 by Jack Mooney and then again at 5:02 by
Catalino. RH responded with two quick goals; the first
from John Gause at 4:43 with an assist from Moran and
the second at 4:06. This time it was McShea with the assist
again going to Moran. With the momentum swinging toward
RH, Schroeder came back with an unassisted goal from Chris
Ferry with 3:50 remaining in the third. The play began
with a loose ball scramble and then the ball rolled toward
the RH goal where it rolled harmlessly under sophomore
goalie Matt McShea's stick in the midst of a pile up in
front of the net. Schroeder then added the final three
goals in the third. Two goals were scored by Costanza
and the third came from Ferry at 1:17. Schroeder took
the 10-5 lead going into the 4th quarter.
Each team scored two goals in the 4th to make the final
12-7 Schroeder. Scoring for RH in the 4th were McShea
and Gause with both assists going to Hillmon. Schroeder's
goals were scored by Ferry and Mooney.
Coach Gottko commented: "The first half was a defensive
battle with both teams putting pressure on each others'
offenses. We were able to withstand Schroeder's push in
the third to bring their lead back to one, however the
funny goal slipping under Matt McShea's stick turned momentum
back to them and from there, they scored 3 in the last
2 minutes. It was tough luck for our kids and the Schroeder
players capitalized to finish the quarter with a flurry.
Both teams left everything on the field."
Schroeder goalie Dennis Costanza recorded 13 saves for
the Warriors (6-6) while the Royal Comets move to 3-9.
Penfield moved to 12-0 with their 15-1
victory under the lights over host Aquinas. Taking advantage
