But that 3-0 deficit nearly vanished in the second period. All through those 15 minutes, Skaneateles peppered the Bucs with scoring chances, and watched Jones score a pair of goals, while Owen Kuhns got one goal and one assist. Josh Kuhns earned two assists as Cooney, Strods and Haberstock got one assist apiece.
Despite that Laker push, Oswego emerged from that frame still in front, 4-3, and it tacked on an insurance goal in the final period as Chase Izyk turned away every chance he faced, the Bucs goalie finishing with 33 saves, nearly twice Kupp’s total.
Oswego’s attack was well-balanced, too. Only Justin Clark found the net twice, while Jake Anderson, Jake Oleyourryk and Zack Zerrahn got one goal apiece. Sean Mooney and Dave Walpole each had two assists.
With its six-game win streak over, Skaneateles looks to start a new streak at Clinton on Wednesday before returning home next Friday night to take on New Hartford, who got off to a 4-0 start, its best since its back-to-back state title runs in 2009 and ’10.
