| Saturday Games || April 14, 2007 - Six games were scheduled for Saturday. Penfield, Hilton, Thomas, McQuaid Jesuit and Carthage were among
the winners. No report was received for the Mynderse/Hamilton game.
The game was a lot more closely contested than the 12-7 score would
indicate, but Webster Thomas was the winner over
host Rush-Henrietta on a cold but clear Saturday afternoon. Like
many other games this week, this one started with a moment of
silence in honor of Jeff Milano-Johnson.
Rush scored first, just
0:53 seconds into the game as Brian Hantzis picked up the first
of his 2 goals with a feed from Matt Moran. The Titans came right
back with a brother to brother goal, as Dom passed the ball to
Nick Scalzo at 9:38. Thomas took the lead with a man up goal by
Brendon Rothfuss (assisted by Nick Scalzo). After a five minute
period without scoring, Rush scored the first of three in a row
to take a 4-2 lead after the first quarter. Hantzis scored the
first one after receiving the ball from Moran, but the assist
was not recorded. Delone scored the next two, the first from a
clear and the second on a drive, dodging two Webster players.
The second quarter was owned
by Thomas who scored the first goal right from the initial face
off. Maloney controlled the ball, picked up the ground ball and
scored on his drive from the midfield. Moran scored at 7:59 to
give R-H their only goal of the quarter. The Titans then scored
four in a row starting with a goal by Rothfuss (from Max Gurowski).
Dan Hinderland scored the next (assisted by Gurowski) in Man up.
Rothfus received a cross crease pass from Gurowski and scored
with an underhand shot at 1:44. Defenseman Jake Ziegler ran to
the cage after clearing the ball and scored on an unassisted bounce
shot with 0:10 left in the half. Thomas was ahead 7-5.
the only goal in the third quarter when Hantzis shot, and the shot
came out of the Titan goalie stick. By rule, the goal was credited
to the Thomas "in-home", Nate Delone. The
Titans had four penalties in the third quarter and held the Royal
Comets off on all four.
The Titans scored the next three in a row
bringing the score to 10-6. Rothfuss scored first (assisted by Pat
Morrill) on a cut from behind the cage. Gurowski, driving from behind
the cage in man up, took advantage of a missing post slide and scored
to take the score to 10-6. Nick Scalzo scored another in man up
(assisted by Dom Scalzo). R-H scored their final goal at 5:10 after
