Cazenovia hockey has first-ever state no. 1 ranking

More than in other games, Cazenovia proved balanced in its attack. Five different players scored, led by Lewis, who had two goals and one assist, as Nardella, Gara, David Marshall, Brian Demo and Zach Daniels also took turns converting.

Sean Cannizzaro had two assists as Alan Baldwin and Connor Cannizzaro joined Marshall and Nardella with single assists. Overall, Cazenovia took 42 shots to Cortland/Homer's 10.

As for Hamilton, it closed out its 2010 portion of the schedule Wednesday with an impressive 3-0 shutout of Fayetteville-Manlius at the Morrisville State IcePlex.

All the goals came in the second period as Alex Brink found the net twice and Kinnon Nolan-Finkel also converted. Rob Keever, Alex Foster, Dan Buehler and Marc Donahue earned assists. Hamilton's defense did the rest as Brady Carroll stopped all 15 shots he faced.

Hamilton (4-2, 2-1 Division I) is home this week for back-to-back games against Watertown IHC and Clinton before going to Shove Park Friday to face defending state Division I champion West Genesee.

Meanwhile, Cazenovia would aim for seven wins in a row Tuesday, at Auburn, before returning to the IcePlex to face Fulton on Thursday, then playing in Cicero-North Syracuse's tournament at the Twin Rinks on the weekend.
