SO CLOSE: Baldwinsville forward Parker Ferrigan (18) sees his shot blocked by West Genesee goaltender Jake Pelton in last Tuesday’s 3-0 defeat. Ferrigan followed this effort with a three-goal hat trick Friday night in a 4-3 loss to Fayetteville-Manlius.
That loss would not sting too much as long as the Bees rebounded Friday and knocked off Fayetteville-Manlius. But a late lead slipped away in a painful 4-3 defeat to the Hornets.
Parker Ferrigan did everything within his power to help B’ville clinch that playoff spot. His pair of goals helped the Bees gain a 2-1 lead by the end of the second period, and Ferrigan scored again in the third period to complete a hat trick. Justin Newman had two assists, with Mike Schneid also getting an assist.
Even with that, though, F-M roared back, tying it 3-3, and with 1:30 left in regulation Trevor Chase, off a feed from Anthony Angello, slipped a shot past Chris Johns, which proved the game-winner. Johns, in defeat, finished with 23 saves.
