West Genesee defender Robbie Michel (2) dives for the puck in front of his net during Tuesday night's game against Baldwinsville. Michel had an assist and anchored a back line that produced yet another shutout, 3-0, over the Bees.
As this went on, Solvay returned to action at Allyn Arena and improved its post-season hopes with a 4-2 victory over Cortland-Homer. The Bearcats (12-6) led most of the way, but could not pull clear until it scored twice in the final period.
David Graf, with two goals and one assist, led the attack as Kyle McVey and Austin Webb each scored, too. Will Downs had two assists, with David Lilly and Tyler O’Mara gaining single assists. Ryan Bonk stopped 32 of 34 shots he faced.
Solvay’s playoff fate may hinge on Friday’s regular-season finale against B’ville, which comes as West Genesee (19-0) tried to complete its perfect run through the regular season against Fayetteville-Manlius at Cicero Twin Rinks.
