West Genesee midfielder Matt Schattner (8) goes for a face-off during last Friday’s game at Baldwinsville. Schattner had two assists as the Wildcats beat the Bees 8-1.
Though WG’s attack was modest in comparison, it did enough as Ginestro recorded three goals and St. Croix found the net twice. Schattner had two assists as Higginbotham and Pritchard earned one goal apiece.
Just 24 hours later, the Wildcats were at home, facing Loyola Academy, a visiting private-school program from the Chicago suburbs. When WG prevailed 8-3 over the Ramblers, Messere had win no. 746, one away from Cuozzo’s total.
Steadily, WG built a 5-1 halftime lead, and Barber had much to do with it. Held to one assist at B’ville, Barber would respond by scoring four times on this day, half of WG’s total.
St. Croix stepped in again, getting two goals, while Schattner had one goal and one assist and R.J. Tinklepaugh also found the net. Glesener and Ginestro chimed in with assists.
On Tuesday night at Holland Stadium, WG played at Auburn, where Messere could catch Cuozzo and give the Wildcats a chance to break the record at home Thursday night against Oswego before a Saturday trip to Jamesville-DeWitt.
