Jordan-Elbridge, mired at 1-5 when the week got underway, took a large step toward recovery at home on Wednesday afternoon, knocking off Cazenovia 11-10.
In a game where neither side could gain any clear edge, the Eagles’ defense proved effective in the first half and helped produce a 4-3 lead. As the second half wore on, both teams would make surges, but J-E would hang on.
Amanda Wheeler led the way, with three goals and four assists, her passes often going to Emily Bates, who scored four times and added an assist. Alexis Malvaso got two goals, while Amanda Brown and Kelsey Youmell earned single tallies.
Westhill, off until Thursday’s game against Tully, seemed to go cold during its layoff, which showed in a 12-4 defeat to the Black Knights that dipped the team’s record to 3-5.
Steadily, Tully pulled clear behind a balanced attack, paced by Amanda Briggs and Ally McNerney, who earned three goals apiece. In defeat, Westhill’s Brenna Rainone scored twice, adding an assist, while Maggie Tripodi earned a pair of assists. Shelby Stack and Ryann Laible had the other goals.
As this went on, Ludden/Grimes took a 13-3 defeat to Skaneateles, only getting goals from Tully, O’Kane and Erannan Shattuck as the Lakers steadily pulled away from a modest 5-2 halftime margin. Emma Ford and Carly Davis led Skaneateles with four goals apiece.
