— Still, the goalie change proved fruitless for Central Square, as Garrett Gray, tallied his second goal. Ferrigan’s breakaway shot rebounded perfectly to Gray’s stick, and he finished from there.

Senior forward Ronnie May joined the stat sheet three minutes later with a goal of his own from Zandri and Garth Gray.

“I was not pleased with the first goal real early in the second,” Lloyd said, “but then we responded to that. We kept our composure, we kept at it, and we kept with the game plan.”

B'vile committed the first penalty 7:43 into the second. Tyler Weber was called for a cross check, but Bees goalie Josh Pinard warded off five shots to kill the first 5-on-4.

But then the penalties began flowing like the Seneca River. Four more players went to the box before the second intermission, though it did little to stop the Bees' momentum. Zandri scored his second on the power play, slotting home the rebound on Garth Gray’s shot.

The third period went scoreless until junior forward Sean Barron capped the scoring for Baldwinsville with a little over a minute to play, putting home May’s deflected shot.

Zandri finished with two goals and three assists, Ferrigan had a goal and four assists, and Garth Gray tallied a goal and three assists.
