Bad weather pushed the last part of its Class A quarterfinal against no. 3 seed Baldwinsville until Wednesday afternoon, but the delay did little to change the course of events as the Northstars fell, 11-0, to the Bees.
After a 90-minute delay to the start last Tuesday, the game began, and B’ville used its defense to shut down anything that the Northstars tried to establish.
Goals by Zach Bulak and Steve Petrelli 10 seconds apart in the first quarter got the Bees in front, 2-0, and that margin expanded to 5-0 by halftime. C-NS still hadn’t scored when, midway through the third quarter, the lightning returned, causing a suspension of play.
When it resumed Wednesday afternoon, the Bees more than doubled its margin, getting a goal before the third period was done and adding five more in the final period.
Petrelli scored three times and added three assists, while Bulak had a team-high four goals. Luke McCaffrey managed one goal and one assist as Cody Luke got a goal and two assists. Nate Rutkowski and Matt Zandri also scored as goalie Parker Ferrigan stopped all 14 C-NS shots he faced.
