Thomas By One, Pal-Mac by Two
Wednesday: DAY IN REVIEW: Thomas had a tough game at McQuaid but won the 5-4 upset and was the only lower seed to win today.
Thomas won another low scoring game with a 5-4 win over McQuaid Jesuit. The Titans (5th seed) defeated Knights (4th seed) with a slow methodical pacing to the game. Throughout the contest, both teams were slow to go to the cage. They took their time before capitalizing and that led to a mostly back and forth contest. Both teams led with the game only being more than one goal apart a single time. STORY CONTINUES
Zach Baker (2g-6a) led the Red Raider offense as they made it past Bath in a close game between the top seeded Pal-Mac and 9th seeded Bath. The teams were tied at 5-5 at the half, but Pal-Mac outscored the Rams 7-4 in the third quarter and won 15-13.
Mynderse scored the first goal and stayed ahead in their game until Marcus Whitman tied the game in the second quarter and then continued to score with Seth Benedict leading the Wildcats with 6g-2a. Matt Mattoon had 3g-7a and Jake Borrelli made 5s (63%) to help Midlakes win their game against the Pride.
Lukas Stanat (5g-2a), Najeeb Awad (4g-3a), Owen Ronchetti (4g-2a) and Casey McDermott (2g-5a) helped to punch Brighton's ticket to the final four in the victory over Schroeder. Alexander Butcher had 5s (71%) for the Barons. Also making 5s (71%) was Canandaigua goalie Aiden Kenyon who, with twelve offensive players helped the Braves win their quarter final game with Spencerport.
Joey Pezzimenti had six goals to lead the Victor Blue Devils past Irondequoit. Liam Haller made 11s (68%) in the contest. Penn Yan avenged their 2018 loss to Aquinas as Colt Smith scored 2g-5a and Griffin Emerson made 9s (90%) for the Mustangs.
Finishing their season today were Bath (6-11), Mynderse (9-8), Bloomfield-Honeoye (8-9), Schroeder (8-10), Spencerport (8-10), Irondequoit (9-9), Aquinas (5-13) and McQuaid Jesuit (11-6).
