Just when CBA/J-D wanted to capitalize on its 5-2 win over state-ranked New Hartford on Jan. 3, weather postponed last Tuesday’s visit to the Morrisville State IcePlex to face Cazenovia.
As the Brothers stewed, F-M looked for a turnaround last Wednesday against 6-3 Liverpool at the Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena, but could not quite find it in a 4-3 defeat to the Warriors.
The problem for the Hornets was that, by the time it got on the board in the second period, Liverpool already had a 2-0 lead. And it would stay out in front during a tense final period by matching whatever F-M produced.
Dunnewold had a part in all of the Hornets’ scoring plays, scoring twice and assisting on Capriotti’s goal. Daly, Jake Dumond and Trevor Pokines joined Capriotti and Dunewold in the assist column.
For his part, Napierala made 28 saves, but even he could do little about Liverpool star Dalton Horton, who earned a three-goal hat trick, plus an assist. Tom Bianchi had a goal and three assists, with Kody Gaulke assisting on all three goals.
