Andrews Leads CA and Sets School Record

-  SPORTSFIVE REPORT:  Third seeded Canandaigua scored the first three goals of the game and never trailed in their 16-8 win over tenth seeded Churchville-Chili.  After defeating the seventh (Ath/Ody) and second (Thomas) seeds, the Saints fell to the Braves.  Churchville-Chili kept the game close for a half, before Canandaigua held them scoreless in the third quarter and extending their lead to 12-5.

Canandaigua also held the Saints scoreless in the first quarter while adding three.  The game opener was scored by Devin Andrews with a drive along the left goal line.  Five minutes later, the Braves scored again with Andrews assisting Zach Wade on a cross-crease pass.  Wade also scored the third goal with a feed from behind the cage from Mark Belles.  Churchville-Chili’s goalie Mike Miara had a remarkable game.  He recorded 7 saves in the opening quarter (70%) and was a major factor in allowing the Churchville-Chili offense an opportunity to stay in the game.  Although the Braves wore him down over the rest of the game (he finished with 15 saves/16 goals against), his performance in the contest was standout.

Churchville-Chili scored the first goal of the second quarter with Jacob Buck assisting Corey Yunker near the crease.  Yunker tripped during his shot, but still finished into the back of the net to put the Saints on the board.  Canandaigua added an outside shot goal from Connor McClain before Churchville-Chili added two more to pull within one.  Yunker scored again with a feed along the left sided crease from Austin Orengo.  After the play, Canandaigua was assessed a technical penalty and Churchville-Chili began with the ball.  The Saints took the opportunity and scored with a drive straight at the cage by Orengo to pull within one (4-3).

Carson Greene responded for the Braves with back to back unassisted goals.  The first was a drive from behind the cage and the second was a face-off fast-break only 0:14 later.  Churchville-Chili kept in the game with another pair of goals.  Nicholas Colucci scored unassisted with help from Yunker.  Yunker drove from behind the cage, pulled a double team and dumped the ball to Colucci.  He drove around the rest of the crease to the front side and finished into the back of the net.  A very similar play happened on the next goal with an assist to Buck.  This time, Buck’s quick shot gave Yunker the assist.  Canandaigua answered with the fourth set of back to back goals in a row to end the half.  Andrews drove from behind the cage and Tyler Good scored off a feed from Green.  Canandaigua led 8-5 at the half.

The third quarter belonged to the Braves.  They added four goals and held the Saints scoreless.  Andrews scored three and Greene scored the fourth, all four were unassisted.  In the fourth quarter, Churchville-Chili scored three goals and Canandaigua scored four.  Churchville-Chili had the final shot at the cage with 0:02 remaining and an unassisted goal from Buck.  Canandaigua’s Joe Post finished strong at the face-off draw (21/25).

During the game, three school records were set.  Buck set a school record for Churchville-Chili in single season goals with 80.  The previous record was 63.  Yunker tied a school record for most points in a career with 260.  Yunker is currently only a junior and will have another season to set new records for the Saints.  Andrews became the all-time goal scorer for Canandaigua with 160 career goals.  The previous record was 158 (Connor Henderson – Class of 2008).
