WG hockey rallies for fourth straight sectional title

And exactly one minute later, with 2:08 left, John Sabert flashed open on the right side following crisp passes from Kurz and Robbie Michel, and his wrist shot flew past D'Urso into the top left corner of the net, putting the Wildcats in front.

Still, WG wasn't clear. With less than a minute left, RFA sent in the extra attacker as D'Urso went to the bench. It seemed to pay off when, with 42.4 seconds to play, Max Bartell banged home a rebound shot.

However, it was ruled that the Black Knights had interfered with Wildcat goaltender Jake Pelton and that the net was dislodged before the puck went in the net. RFA players and fans loudly protested the call, but it stood, and WG held on for yet another sectional title.

Colabufo said the Wildcats' fourth straight championship is as much a tribute to the youth hockey programs in Camillus as anything else, and serves as an inspiring example to younger players of what can be accomplished.
