Anthony Angello was back in top form, taking part in both goals as F-M grabbed a quick 2-0 lead. The Hornets only managed one more goal the rest of the night, but its defense stymied Syracuse until Collin Thompson’s third-period tally.
All told, Angello earned one goal and two assists. Trevor Chase also had two assists as Capriotti and Matt McDonough scored off of Angello’s feeds. Erik Badger played well in his turn in the net, stopping 33 of 34 shots he faced.
While it has given everyone a tough battle, the CBA/J-D ice hockey team has remained stymied in their ability to get victories against tough Division II opposition.
Such was the case again in last Tuesday’s game at Onondaga Nation Arena, where the Brothers again got close, and again got turned away in a 2-1 loss to the Maroons.
Neither team would score until the second period, when Auburn grabbed a 1-0 edge. Then CBA/J-D got on the board as Pete Dziergas scored off passes from Lucas Relkin and Jed Raby, but the Maroons converted, too, to hang on.
In the net, Tim Decker recorded 14 saves. CBA/J-D had the vast majority of scoring opportunities in this game, but Auburn goaltender Jeff Gardner turned back 34 of 35 shots.
That skid ended Friday night, at Fulton, where the Brothers overcame a terrible start to dominate the last two periods and score five unanswered goals as it beat the Red Raiders 6-3.
CBA/J-D is home all of this week, playing Whitesboro and Clinton. F-M plays Liverpool on Tuesday before a Saturday visit to Cortland-Homer.
