Though it only got half the work in last week, the Skaneateles ice hockey team made it count in an emphatic manner.
Snowed out from a game last Wednesday against Auburn, the well-rested Lakers welcomed Fulton to Allyn Arena Friday night – then proceeded to flatten the Red Raiders in a 5-0 shutout to improve to 6-2-1 on the season.
This proved one of the best all-around efforts of the Skaneateles season. It scored twice in both the first and second periods, then tacked on another goal in the final period while Trevor Diamond stopped all 25 shots he faced.
On the offensive end, Mike Benson, with three assists, fed passes to Dan Tarolli and Jacob Cooney, both of whom had two goals. Brendan Major had the other goal, with Tyler Stanton and Jon Rogalia joining Tarolli in the assist column.
Still in fifth place in Division II with a 3-2-1 league mark, the Lakers go to Whitesboro Wednesday, then have an intriguing home-and-home weekend set against CBA/J-D, first at Onondaga Nation Arena on Friday, then at its old home rink at Austin Park Saturday.
