As a follow-up, the Warriors took on Watertown Saturday afternoon. Ignoring the cold and wind, Liverpool dominated in the early going and cruised from there for a 12-7 victory over the Cyclones.
Right from the start, Liverpool went after Watertown’s defense, and constantly converted as it built a 10-2 edge. O’Brien, with three goals, led the charge as Burns, Cabrey and Alexis Kline got two goals apiece. Attaway and Mancini each had one goal and one assist and Rachel Kline also scored.
Though the Warriors could not sustain that pace, it had enough of a cushion to withstand the Cyclones’ late push, the defense holding Watertown’s top player, Bri Arthur, to three goals. Zajac picked up six saves.
This got Liverpool back to the .500 mark (4-4), and it could get to a winning mark if it got past Rome Free Academy and the combined Syracuse city squad this week.
