Trying to avenge a 4-0 loss from earlier this season, the Warriors looked in great shape for the first two periods. Horton scored twice and assisted on goals from Joe Muolo and Jordan Iannolo, with Muolo adding two assists. Iannolo and Alex Bittel each had one assist.
But Liverpool’s 4-1 lead going into the third period did not last, as F-M scored three times in those last 15 minutes to pull even. The assault continued in overtime, but Wu, who had 33 saves, allowed the Warriors to maintain the single point.
The Warriors’ third game in five nights, against Solvay on Friday at Lysander, proved difficult, too, as the Bearcats pounded Liverpool 7-2. Horton and Dakota Gaulke scored and Wu made 36 saves, but Solvay saw David Graf and Tyler O’Mara each find the net twice.
Liverpool now has to make the trip to Shove Park Friday to face undefeated, state Division I no. 1-ranked West Genesee. C-NS meets Fayetteville-Manlius Wednesday at Onondaga Nation Arena, two days before hosting Hamilton.
