C-NS grabs first-ever no. 1 state hockey ranking

Northstars rise from no. 4 spot after shake-up

— As this went on, Liverpool met Central Square at the Twin Rinks and, led by Tyler Garofalo, pulled out a 7-6 decision over the Red Hawks.

All game long, it proved tight. With a 2-2 tie going into the second period, the Warriors managed to inch out in front, 5-4, in that frame, and held on by matching Central Square's output in the final period.

Through it all, Garofalo managed his own hat trick, finding the net three times, while Kody Gaulke had two goals and one assist and Dalton Horton managed three assists.

Supporting them, Nick Bittel and Don McManus earned single goals, with Richie Hart managing two assists. Rocco Leone and Zach Vivenzo had one assist apiece. Despite some struggles in the net, goalie Stephen Kozikoski recorded 23 saves.

With that win, the Warriors improved its record to 6-7-1, and could get back to the .500 mark Thursday if it beats Ontario Bay.

Meanwhile, C-NS will stay at the Twin Rinks Thursday and face one of its co-tenants, Fayetteville-Manlius (8-3-1), who blanked Watertown IHC 4-0 on Monday.
