continued In the end it was Evans who put the game out of reach when he scored two unassisted goals 14 seconds apart in the closing minutes of the third period.
“You can’t keep him down for long,” Archer said. “He’s just a hell of a player. He’s going to get his points.”
Johnson finished with two goals, and scored the only second-half goal by a player not named Jordan Evans. Perkins finished with a hat-trick, all three coming in the first half. Evans increased his season point total to 73 - 36 goals, 37 assists.
Before going to Camillus, the Red Rams had what appeared, on the surface, to be a showdown with 5-0 Cortland last Tuesday night.
But J-D throttled the Purple Tigers 22-4, the fifth time in its first seven games that it had scored 20 or more goals. Not letting up one bit, the Rams bolted to an 8-1 first-quarter edge and kept on pulling away, leading Cortland 15-2 by the time they reached the half.
Again reaching double digits in points, Evans backed up his four goals with six assists, with Mike Engstrom and Griffin Feiner each having their own four-goal outings.
Griffin Johnson had two goals and two assists, with Ryan McKee and Jeff Edwards both getting two goals and one assist. Nick Wright also found the net twice as Ryan Durkin and Ryan Wright notched single goals. Perkins and Mike Mulvihill got one assist apiece.
Games against East Syracuse-Minoa and Whitesboro this week precede a highly-anticipated trip to Hobart College in Geneva next Saturday night, where J-D takes on Section V power Fairport, who was no. 6 in the last state Class A poll.
