Back home on Thursday night, WG took on Syracuse East and, finally, got a chance to unleash most of its attack on an opponent, not letting up until it had recorded an impressive 21-3 victory.
This was not done in one single burst. The Wildcats started by dominating in the face-off circle and turned those increased possessions into goals. It led 5-0 after one period and continued to roll the rest of the half, expanding the margin to 12-1.
It was 17-1 by the fourth quarter, and through it all St. Croix was particularly strong, amassing four goals and dishing out five assists, while Hoose had three goals and three assists and Ginestro added two goals and four assists.
Brad Howes also had a three-goal hat trick, with Pat Hanley and Adam Higginbotham close behind as they both scored twice. Brown, Niechcial, Glesener and Matt Milne each had one goal as Pritchard earned three assists and Sean Marks two assists.
The defeat to Fairport left the Wildcats at 4-3 as it mostly rested through this week and prepared for Saturday’s home clash with defending Class B champion Jamesville-DeWitt.
