Liverpool attacker Harry Sardella (8) works his way around a West Genesee defender in Thursday's game. Sardella had a goal as the Warriors defeated the Wildcats 7-4 in a rematch of last year's Section III Class A final.
continued Liverpool also would avoid a letdown on Saturday, at Westhill, turning back that other group of Warriors in a tough 9-7 decision.
Two goals by Richie Easterly nine seconds apart put Liverpool behind, 2-0, early in the first quarter, but it quickly recovered and saw Kuppel, Keahey and Dom Castiglia score to push the visitors in front for good.
All told, Liverpool made a 6-0 run that stretched deep into the second quarter. Westhill didn’t wilt, though, moving back within 7-5 early in the fourth quarter, only to see Kuppel get one goal and assist on another, by Sardella, to put it away.
The Warriors are back home Tuesday, the weather cooperating this time for a game against Baldwinsville (the other will get made up later this season). Liverpool will visit Oswego Thursday and host Essex, a team from Vermont, on Saturday morning at 10 a.m.
