B’ville, who had rested for more than a week following its season-opening defeat to Cazenovia on March 31, took some time to establish its attack, but still moved in front of the Maroons and carried a 5-1 edge to halftime.
The third quarter decided matters as the Bees put up six unanswered goals, further illustrating the deep fall of Auburn’s program from its heights as an annual title contender.
Luke Evans, with five goals, and Petrelli, with two goals and four assists, led the Bees’ charge. Dylan Bowman also found the net twice as Colin Gooley earned a goal and two assists. Matt Paddock, Nate Rutkowski and Spencer Ladd had the other goals.
Long road trips to Utica Proctor and Watertown IHC bookend a week where B’ville also plays Cicero-North Syracuse on Thursday night.
