Irondequoit 10 - Aquinas 8
-- With records of 6-3 and 11-1 the match up between Irondequoit and Aquinas was expected to be a good one. At game, time it looked like the Little Irish might be in trouble when Brendan Hall was warming up in the nets instead of Kraig Heston, who was unavailable for the game. Hall, however, with only one lapse, did a fine job, recording ten saves by the end of the day.
The Little Irish scored the first goal, at 10:51, when Austin Gorman (3g-2a) scored his first goal of the game with and assist from Anthony Bianchi on a short drive from the side of the goal. The Eagles, however, scored the next five unanswered goals to close the quarter with Irondequoit up 5-1.
Junior middie Mike Utz was first up, on the receiving end of an inside feed from sophomore middie Greg Coholan, to tie the game at 1-1. One minute later Jordan Napierala beat one man and got by a second who slid too early on his drive from the right. Less than a minute later, Greg Coholan scored an unassisted goal from up top. Then sophomore attackman Emmy Poccia found Drew Coholan who was alone and standing just off the left crease. All four goals were scored in less than two minutes.
Poccia ended the first quarter scoring with an unassisted goal as he ran a close cut from behind the goal and underhanded the ball into the goal. The Eagles were ahead 5-1.
Aquinas settled down during the time between quarters and came back hard, scoring three unanswered goals at the top of the quarter. Bianchi scored on a shot from up top at 11:11 and then assisted on the second goal, scored by Gorman, at 9:57. Sophomore attackman Klay Heston scored on a textbook inside fast break from a clear and with an assist from Gorman. The goals took the sting out of the offensive play by the Eagles, but they recovered by scoring two more goals before the half. Greg Coholan drove to the right and sent a fierce some side arm shot past Hall at 5:55 to take the score to 6-4. Senior attackman David Shields scored on a pass from Erik Kleehammer to give Irondequoit a 7-4 lead at the half time break.
Aquinas made it a two goal game early in the third with an unassisted goal by Gorman, who backed his way to the crease before scoring. Irondequoit scored their only goal of the quarter when Drew Coholan drove from the top of the restraining box for his unassisted goal at 6:10. The quarter ended with the Eagles ahead 8-5.
Although the scoring in the fourth quarter was 3-2 for Aquinas, it felt like the game was close and might go either way. Irondequoit scored first, giving them a 9-6 lead. Greg Coholan had another drive from the top and forced his way to a one-on-one with the goalie. Aquinas came back at 7:28 with an unassisted goal by Heston, driving from behind the cage and dodging two defenders before scoring with a bounce shot. He scored again three minutes later when the Little Irish broke an Irondequoit clear and he found himself at the end of an inside fast break.
