continued As this went on, Westhill, 9-8 a season ago (it lost to Cazenovia in the Class C quarterfinals), played its first home game in two years, opening the season with a 13-3 victory over General Brown.
The Warriors played its entire 2012 schedule on the road as its new artificial turf field was installed. Now that it doesn't have to travel 17 times this spring, Westhill has higher expectations for itself, which showed against General Brown.
After a scoreless first period, the Warriors took over by getting eight unanswered goals in the second and third quarters. And it was a freshman, John Zimmerman, leading the charge, eventually producing five goals and one assist.
Richie Easterly had three assists to go with his lone goal. Luke Longo, Jack Centore and Mark Purcell each got a goal and two assists, while Ryan Suddaby had one goal and one assist. Andrew French, Mike Cisternino and Evan Radin found the net, too.
