Baldwinsville defender Clayton Messmer (29) lowers his shoulder after Liverpool’s Peter Flood (18) takes a shot in Saturday’s game at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium. Messmer and the Bees’ defense blanked the Warriors again in the fourth quarter during a 10-6 victory, completing a regular-season sweep of the defending Section III Class a champions.
continued In the wake of a tough 9-6 defeat to West Genesee on May 3, the Bees got nearly a week to recuperate, practice and work on what it could still improve as the post-season loomed.
The Bees returned to action last Thursday night, hosting Oswego, and even though the attack was inconsistent, the defense’s domination made up for it in a 9-3 victory over the Buccaneers.
It was Senior Night, and despite weather that delayed activities for a bit, B’ville still took the field and muddled through the opening period, only grabbing a 1-0 lead.
Oswego’s hopes started to fade in the second quarter, though, as the Bees outscored them 4-1 to take control. Then B’ville pitched another shutout in the third period, allowing the lead to grow to 7-1, and that was more than enough.
Bulak, with four assists to go with his lone goal, led the way, as he would against Liverpool. Luke and Zandri each scored twice, with McCaffrey and McAskill also landing goals. Ronnie Bertrand and Ronnie May joined McAskill in the assist column as Ferrigan had 10 saves.
With a 10-5 record following the win over Liverpool, the Bees are heavily favored in Tuesday’s regular-season finale at Central Square.
