| Thursday: Penn Yan over Fairport || April 20, 2006 - There were six games

Defense was the name of the game at Penn
Yan where the Mustangs scored the game winner
in the last minute of the game. Canandaigua
won by a goal at Irondequoit and Geneva
scored three goals in last quarter to beat
midfielder Steven Carlson scored three
goals including one with just 0:45 in
the game to give Penn Yan the
6-5 win over visiting Fairport in this
great game that featured incredible defense
and dramatic goals by both teams.
Fairport was in control of the score in
the the first quarter, producing two goals
while holding the Mustangs scoreless. Senior
attackman Dan Scarazzo scored the first
on a pass from Pat Reilly at 10:38 and Ryan

over. Ben Odell scored (unassisted) on a
drive from the top of the box to get the
go-ahead goal with 0:04 in the half and
take the Mustangs into halftime with a 3-2
Like the Schroeder-Penn Yan game last week,
the game was a lesson in the power of defense
as both Fairport and Penn Yan defensive
units limited shooting opportunities and
each goalie made big "high pressure"
saves when needed. The tied scored remained
until the last minute of the third quarter.
Fairport's Mike Danylyshyn scored a man
up goal with an assist from Shawn Runyon
at 0:54. The Red Raider lead didn't last
long as Mike Manley won the faceoff and
ran down field making an incredibly hard
side arm shot with his defensive stick and
scoring with 0:48 left in the quarter. At
the end of the third quarter Penn Yan was
Momentum was an interesting factor in the
game as the excitement of a score by one
team would encourage the opponent to step
it up. Fairport's Jeffrey Sanna made a beautiful
feed to the crease where Pat Reilly was
ready to catch and score at 10:55, but 0:22
seconds later, Steven Carlson forced a turnover,
scooped up the ball and ran to the other
end other field where he scored for Penn
Fairport tied the score again at the 4:49
mark when Dan Scarazzo passed the ball to
Mike Danylyshyn on the crease for the goal.
Ball control was carefully managed by both
teams as they looked for opportunities that
simply were not there as the defensive units
made penetration difficult and the goalies
made the saves.
With time running out, the Mustangs cleared
the ball, but could not seem to get into
the offensive set that Coach Hobart wanted.
He called his last time out at 0:59 and
gave very specific instructions to the offense.
Carlson got the call and on a clear out
drive from the front, placed a bounce shot
past Fairport goalie Geoff Mayor. Mike Manley
controlled the ball on the ensuing face
off and the Mustangs took the win.
