Lakers smash Homer in playoff rematch

Caz advances to face CBA in sectional semis

— Henry Mann, strong all game long with the face-offs, chimed in with two goals and one assist, while Jake Stowell's late-season surge continued with a goal and two assists. Kyle Brown and Alex Sullivan each had one goal and one assist, with P.J. Brown adding an assist.

On the other end, Cazenovia's defense, led by Joe Colligan, Mike Nourse, Jay Hahn, Keaton Ackermann and Eli Mitchell, kept every Homer player except Brandon Maxson (two goals) from scoring more than once. Trevor Cross was particularly sharp, stopping 11 of the 15 direct shots he faced.

And this brings the Lakers (17-2) into the sectional semifinal against Westhill (16-2), another chance for payback, since the Warriors gave Cazenovia its last defeat, an 8-7 overtime decision on May 3. Westhill used a strong fourth quarter to knock out no. 7 seed Skaneateles 13-10 in its quarterfinal game as Ryan Suddaby picked up seven goals.
