It was 3-2 through one period, but those early struggles only seemed to wake up F-M as it tore through the rest of the half on a 9-1 spurt. Then the Hornets closed on a 5-0 run.
Lux, with four goals and one assist, and Simmons, with three goals and two assists, benefited from the passes of Arnold, who notched five assists. Andrake and Hajduk each scored twice, with Krizman, Cahill, Dew, Ondrich, DeSantis, Keller, Scott Chase and Ryan DaRin also converting.
Five different players – Bobby Campese, Dan MacDougall, Nick Capriotti, Connor McEachron and Jarrett Temple – had the five ESM goals. Goalies Alec Miller and D.J. MacCombie combined to make 10 saves.
Road games against Syracuse East and Baldwinsville remained before the Hornets (7-1) could hone in on the May 1 home showdown with West Genesee.
