B'ville boys lax falls to F-M, West Genny

Sensing the danger, WG struck with regularity during a 6-0 third-quarter spurt that proved decisive. Ike Hopper (four goals), Jordan Rogers and Jim Marks (three goals each) led that push.

Meanwhile, Ward, under pressure all afternoon, managed just one goal and one assist. Evan States did score twice, with Kaval, Styer and Alex Gailor also earning goals. Briggs finished with 18 saves.

As a warm-up for F-M, the Bees just went wild against overmatched Utica Proctor, roaring to a 29-0 victory over the Raiders.

B'ville had 23 goals by halftime, a number partially explained by Ward going out and picking up five goals and 12 assists. The 17 points and 12 assists both broke school records Jack Venditti set two seasons ago.

Often, those passes went to Kevin Whitcomb (six goals and three assists), Nick Gaworecki (five goals, four assists) and Cookie Caloia (four goals, four assists). Kaval, Styer and Tim Hayden had two goals apiece as David Middlemore, Jake Edison and Casey Colligan earned single goals. Niko Manning added an assist.

B'ville visited Liverpool on Monday to make up a snowed-out April 7 date before games against Nottingham, Oswego and Auburn to complete this full and challenging slate.
