Against Fulton on Saturday, the Warriors mostly leaned on its defense and prevailed again, taking out the Red Raiders 8-2 by not allowing a goal after the first period and scoring twice in each of the periods, which proved enough.
Easterly and Zimmerman both finished with two goals and one assist. Centore also found the net twice as Mark Purcell had a pair of assists. French got one goal and one assist and Rogers picked up the other goal.
Later that night, Marcellus went to face yet another Warrior team, from Liverpool, and moved to 2-1 on the season, prevailing 13-8.
In large part, the Mustangs won this game in the first quarter, blanking the Warriors 4-0, and then steadily adding to that margin until it was 11-4 going to the fourth quarter, out of Liverpool’s reach.
Matt Hutchings scored five times, adding an assist. Kevin Hutchings got two goals and two assists, with Filtch, Cox and Mike McNaney also scoring twice, Filtch and McNaney adding assists. Lilly had a strong game in the net, too, finishing with 14 saves.
The combined Bishop Ludden/Bishop Grimes team got off to a rough start last Tuesday afternoon as Christian Brothers Academy rolled past them 22-5.
At 0-2 following early defeats to Cazenovia and Don Bosco Prep (N.J.), the Brothers were itching to get a win and showed little mercy, seeing Andrew Romagnoli get four goals and four assists as Jack Zerillo and Braedon Gait each had their own four-goal outings.
Mark Shattuck scored three of Ludden/Grimes’ five goals, while Connor Smith had a goal and two assists. Doug Myrdek had the other goal.
Then Ludden/Grimes ran into Jordan-Elbridge on Friday night, and the Eagles, in its season opener, took charge in the middle stages to earn an 11-3 victory.
It was a 1-0 game when, starting in the second quarter, J-E won a series of face-offs and, with patience, found the net, outscoring Ludden/Grimes 8-1 in those middle two periods.
