Thomas 8 - Fairport 7
Thomas controlled the majority of the game and despite a heroic comeback by
Fairport, beat the Red Raiders 8-7 at Thomas on Tuesday.
The first quarter was a back-and-forth affair ending in a 3-3 tie. Fairport
scored just 15 seconds into the game when Aaron Jones scored the first of his
4g-1a when he received the ball from the face off area, took it behind the
goal and then ran a wide cut around the cage for a shot from the goalie's right.
After a couple of transitions, Nick Scalzo scored on a beautiful feed from Jake Ziegler
as they executed a textbook fast break clear. Martin Mailla dodged his Thomas
defender and took an outside shot at 5:54 giving Fairport a momentary lead
before Max Gurowski scored on an isolation play less than a minute later.Eric
Hislop scored at 1:40 on a feed from the top left by Jones but the Titans returned
at 0:55 when JT Hauck scored on a clearing pass from William Gurowski. The
teams were tied at three at te end of the first quarter.
Jones started the scoring for Fairport just 25 seconds into the second quarter
but the rest of the quarter and the whole third quarter was controlled by Thomas.
The Titan offense was slow, deliberate and patient, moving the ball around
the cage numerous times before testing a Fairport defenseman and moving the
ball again. The plan was susccessful, both in producing goals and also keeping
the ball away from the Fairport offense, who, feeling the pressure to score,
rushed many opportunities and allowed a stoked up Thomas defense to gain posession
on numerous occasions.
Tomeno scored the first of a five goal run by the Titans when he received
a crease pass from Max Gurowski from restraining line and scored on a turn-around
jump shot at 8:46. Scalzo scored again, this time on a cross crease pass from
Gurowski as he cranking a hard side-arm shot past Fairport's Kris Sterzin.
The shot was set up with more than a minute and a half of passing around the
goal. Gurowski later picked up a critical ground ball on a broken clear and
quickly sent it to the crease were Jack Hinderland was ready and open for the
score. The half ended with Thomas up 6-4.
The Thomas defense became more aggressive in the second half, hounding the
Fairport offense at every opportunity and often creating doubles and takeaways.
Although Fairport had opportunities they were limited in low quality outside
shots and the few inside shots they got were taken away by Austin Fox who made
a number of exciting stops for the Titans. Thomas increased their lead by two
in the third quarter with two goals by Hauck (assisted by Pat Morrill). The
Titan defense which centered around Jake Ziegler, Brad Hutton, Mason Hill and
LSM Kenny Tomeno had an excellent game in front of Austin Fox. Their husstle
and aggressiveness was tempored by solid team defensive play and ensured the
Titans offense had the bulk of ball time in the second and third quarters of
After several empassioned comments in the Fairport huddle, the Red Raiders
mounted a comback in the fourth quarter starting with a man up goal at 7:12
when Paul Dancy, in EMO, picked up a loose ball on the crease and popped it
in the net. Jones scored again after Fairport broke a clear and Hislop sent
him to the ball in front of the cage. With the score 8-6 and just under six
minutes left to play, Fairport gained possession and took a couple of shots
that were saved by Fox, but retained from ground balls by Fairport.
Hislop swept right and took a hard side arm shot that sailed high into the
right corner taking the Red Raiders to within one. Fairport set up a number
of shots with Fox looking directly into the sun. Although the Red Raiders had
two or three shots in the last two minutes, they were unable to tie the game.

Geneva 9 - HFL 8
held off a late HFL rally to defeat the Cougars 9-8. The Panthers won three
quarters, but a late fourth quarter lapse nearly cost them the game.
Geneva scored the only goal of the first quarter when Jim Warner drove from
the top and fired one past Jay Tallon. Tallon played strong for the Cougars
and his fourth quarter efforts nearly won the game for HFL. The first quarter
ended with the Panthers leading 1-0.
Geneva outscored HFL 4-2 in the second quarter. Alex Love scored the first
Geneva goal with 11:32 remaining with a drive from the sideline. Love finished
the game with 10 shots (4 on cage and 2 goals). HFL scored their first goal
during EMO. After swinging the ball around the cage Cade Norris drove from
behind and received the ball from Mike Coady. The Panthers scored the next
three goals, including the next goal in less than 0:10 as Tyler Travis picked
up the ball from the wing and passed it up to Kyle Boncaro who dodged inside
for the goal.
Geneva's next two goals were both looks from the outside to a
cutting crease midfielder. Willie Rago and Dominic DiDuro both scored (from
Love and Warner). The final HFL goal of the quarter was also scored in EMO
as the Cougars ran the same play and Coady fed Norris for the goal. The Panthers
led 5-2 at the half.
In the third quarter, Geneva scored the first three goals, each of which were
unassisted. Love, Eric Legott and Legott again scored for the Panthers. Geneva
led the game 8-2 and apparently had the game in hand with 5:38 remaining in
the third. However, the Cougars did not go quietly as they scored the next
five goals and came within one goal twice before the end of the competition.
With 1:34 remaining Zach Whyte looked across the crease to Matt Lesczynski
who was wide open.
Whyte scored one and assisted on four of the final six goals.
The final goal of the quarter was scored as Lesczynski shot the ball and hit
goalie Ross Dinan in the chest and with 0:01 remaining, Greg Coady picked up
the loose ball and shot it into the upper corner to score. The Panthers had
extended their lead to four (8-4).
HFL continued their scoring streak with the next three goals spanning nearly
the entire quarter. With 6:53 left Whyte scored a fast-break goal (assisted
by Tyler Burgasser). With 3:04 remaining another fast-break goal was scored
by Zach Yager (assisted by Whyte). With 1:49 remaining the Cougars brought
the game within one goal when Mickey Allan scored (assisted by Whyte) on a
broken clear. Josh Layfield stripped the ball on the sideline during a clear
and passed the ball up to Whyte. During this stretch of time both Whyte and
Tallon were major players for the Cougars. Tallon made two point blank saves
on the crease with shots from Love (uncovered during a fast-break) and Rago
(open on a cross-crease feed). Tallon was all over the cage and kept the Panthers
scoreless so the offense could mount the comeback.
With 0:55 Geneva scored
what was the winning goal. Warner scored as he was left open in front of the
cage as the Cougars were attempting to double the ball and take it back for
the tying goal. HFL did score one final goal, with 0:16 remaining, the Cougars
called time-out and Whtye took the ball from over the midfield straight down
onto the crease and hit Mickey Allan for the final goal. Although they attempted
a quick face-off, Zach Jonas was called for withholding and Sean Bennett tossed
the ball into the air to elapse the final seconds.
Jonas and Bennett were nearly equal on face-off's with Bennett and 11-9 winner
(both players took all the face-offs for their respective teams). HFL used
EMO to their advantage as they scored three times (on five attempts), while
Geneva failed to score on three attempts.
HFL had difficulty shooting early on as they failed to hit the cage in the
first quarter and only had three shots on cage (with two goals) during the
second quarter. Geneva, on the other hand, took plenty of shots but had trouble
hitting the cage early on. In the first quarter, Geneva took 14 shots with
only five on cage (one goal).
Tallon, as noted, played a strong game for HFL and finished with 12s/9ga (57%).
Dinan finished with 4s/8ga for Geneva.
Scoring for Geneva were Love (2g-1a), Warner (2g-1a), Legott (2g), Boncaro
(1g), Rago (1g) and DiDuro (1g).

second goal on the board with 3:35 left in the half and the score would remain
tied at halftime. Both goalies played a tremendous first half, keeping their
team's scores close. Victor's goalie Kevin Donnelly saw the majority of action

and kept the offenses on their heels. Victor was first to

minute to make the score 4-3 in favor of Brockport. The fourth quarter started
