Mark Purcell (one goal, two assists) and Zimmerman (one goal, two assists) also made solid contributions as Kyle Magdzuik, Matt McAnaney and Mark Vadala also scored.
As this went on, Marcellus, 1-1 after splitting season-opening home games against Auburn and Baldwinsville, went to General Brown and used a big second quarter as the catalyst for an 11-7 victory over the Lions.
Amid cold temperatures, the Mustangs took a while to warm up, but built on its early 1-0 edge by blitzing GB with six unanswered goals in the second period.
Up 7-0 at the break, Marcellus needed that margin, since the Lions closed the gap to 9-5 in the third quarter, forcing the Mustangs to tough it out in the late going.
Kevin Hutchings and Mike McAnaney each got two goals and two assists. Ross Filtch and Harrison Cox also scored twice, with Nick Nye, Ben Powers and John Dunn picking up one goal apiece. Morgan Reilly added an assist.
Jordan-Elbridge (6-10 a season ago) also found its way to the win column in its season opener, easily turning back Clinton last Friday in a 16-7 romp.
It all turned in the second quarter, when the Eagles, tied 3-3, started winning face-offs and firing shots into the Warriors’ net, not stopping until it had seven unanswered goals and a 10-3 halftime edge, cruising the rest of the way.
Gale Thorpe made sure Clinton didn’t rally, going into double-digit points with his six goals and four assists, and Zach Wagner was close behind with five goals and one assist. Logan Schwarting added two goals and one assist as Aurie Schwarting, Sam Robles and Ryan Johnson also found the net. Between them, goalies Noland Michels and Nick Hallinan had 16 saves.
