Aggressive and productive, Cazenovia found the net four times in each half, and achieved a near-perfect offensive balance, led by McLaughlin and Rachel Nourse, who both picked up two goals and one assist.
Carpenter got one goal and one assist, as did Ashley Kent, while Chiarello and Sarah Willard both got single goals and Silfer picked up a pair of assists.
All that was left in the regular season was Friday’s visit from Cortland, and that turned out well, too, as the Lakers shut out the Purple Tigers 5-0.
Cazenovia eased its way to a 3-0 halftime lead and didn’t stop from there. Silfer, also a pillar on the Lakers’ defense, put up a pair of goals, as did Willard, while Coleen Stalder earned her first goal of the season.
This year, the Section III Class C playoff bracket features six teams. As the top seed, Cazenovia has a bye into the semifinals, on Saturday, where it will face either no. 4 seed Little Falls or no. 5 seed Canastota.
