— Entering the fourth quarter, it was still just a three-goal deficit, 9-6, but in a span of less than three minutes, goals by Derek Farrell, Ryan McDonald and Tyler Brown (his third of the game) put things out of reach for the Bees, though Akers and Steve Petrelli would add some late goals to make the outcome a bit closer.

Before all this, the Bees first had to get past last Tuesday’s opening-round game against no. 6 seed C-NS, but that didn’t prove too taxing as B’ville jumped out in front at the outset and never looked back in a 16-8 romp over the Northstars.

But that, as it turned out, would be Fiorini’s last win, the 405th of a coaching career that included, in his 35-year tenure, a lone sectional championship in 1992 and dozens of players that moved on to flourish in the college ranks.
