Hockey Wildcats win big, go to 12-0

WG, no. 1 in state rankings, handles F-M, Ontario Bay

This followed, by 24 hours, WG’s 7-0 romp at Ontario Bay last Tuesday night, where it seized a 6-0 lead by the end of the second period on the way to its eighth shutout of the season.

Shawn Lynch and John Skrupa each finished with two goals and one assist. David Procopio had a goal and two assists, while Jason Keyes and Jimmy Pelton both put up one goal and one assist. Erik Kurz, Jon Lauer, Robbie Michel and R.J. Tinklepaugh each had one assist.

With the margin so lopsided, head coach Frank Colabufo got to use his entire roster. Senior Max Barone got a turn in goal and, with eight saves, earned the shutout.

Friday’s weather postponement for Solvay was ill-timed, as it needed a win after going to Baldwinsville last Tuesday and taking a 3-2 loss to the Bees.

Through two periods, Solvay trailed, 1-0, but got on the board in the final period as Will Downs scored and assisted on Forrest Gilbert’s tally. Kyle McVey and David Graf had assists, too.

Still, B’ville matched the Bearcats’ late production and overcame goalie Ryan Bonk’s 33 saves, the same number as Bees netminder Chris Johns. Dan Strodel, Justin Neman and Matt Zandri earned the B’ville goals.
