As if a 5-1 lead wasn’t enough, WG blitzed Syracuse East for 11 goals in the second quarter, good for a 16-2 edge. Schattner, with four goals and one assist, and Ryan St. Croix, with three goals, led that charge.
In support, R.J. Tinklepaugh, Andrew Brown and Adam Higginbotham each had two goals and one assist, with Andrew Brown also scoring twice. Glesener managed a goal and assist, as did Brady Hoose, while Mark Niechical got his own goal.
Now all energy turned toward Tuesday night’s rematch with F-M, whom the Wildcats beat 7-5 at home on April 7. This would take place on the Hornets’ new artificial turf field, where it had not yet lost a game.
