Hockey Lakers drub Auburn, now 18-0

Eighteen down, two more to go for the Cazenovia ice hockey team in pursuit of an undefeated regular season.

The Lakers, comfortably sitting atop the State Division II rankings, offered yet another one-sided bashing in front of the home fans at the Morrisville State IcePlex Friday night, taking out Auburn 10-2.

It marked the second time this week (after an 11-0 pasting of New Hartford), and the fourth time this winter, that Cazenovia has notched double-digit goals in a game, as its ruthless attack wasted little time going after the 5-10-1 Maroons.

Before the first period was done, the Lakers already enjoyed a 5-0 lead, and it would double that total, going up 8-0 by the third period as the trio of Brian Gara, John Greacen and Sam Lewis took turns flipping the puck into the net.

By himself, Gara had five goals and two assists, while Greacen notched his own three-goal hat trick, adding one assist. Lewis earned the other two goals and contributed three assists for good measure.

In support, Joe Nardella amassed four assists and Sean Cannizzaro got three assists, while Joe Colligan finished with two assists and Ben Langey earned a single assist.

Cazenovia has one more road trip, to Fulton, on Tuesday before closing the regular season against Whitesboro Thursday night at the IcePlex.
