Haley DeVona helped out, earning five goals and two assists, while Kate McGarrity had three goals to go with her pair of assists. Katy Steigerwald had one goal and one assist as Cindy Brownson, Brigit McGinley and Jenna Kenney also got single tallies.
Two days later, against Fulton, ESM pulled off a similar effort, rolling past the Red Raiders 20-8.
Each side got what it wanted on the offensive end in the first half, but with ESM controlling most of the draws, it established a 12-5 margin, which allowed the defense ample time to settle down, which it did in the latter stages as the margin grew to double digits.
DeVona, with four goals and three assists, and Dooling, with five goals and one assist, led the ESM assault. Steigerwald scored twice, adding three assists, while McGarrity had two goals and two assists. Brownson also scored twice as McGinley and Morgan Young notched single goals.
Weather had pushed Jamesville-DeWitt’s opener at Marcellus back to Friday night, but the delay did little to improve the Red Rams’ chances as it fell to the Mustangs 18-7.
Marcellus, who went to the Section III Class C final a year ago before falling to eventual state finalist Skaneateles, set a ferocious pace and led, 10-4, by halftime, J-D unable to keep up as three different Mustangs – Grace Nolan, Ally Burrows and Audrey Cerrone – had five-goal outings, with Grace Hunt adding four assists.
Grace Huslander still scored three times, with Caroline Kopp and Carly Stone each getting a pair of goals. Lizzie O’Brien got two assists as Amber Hyatt and Jessica Wipper had one assist apiece.
