In the third quarter, Fairport added another two goals while holding Canandaigua scoreless for the entire quarter, for the second time.  Both goals were scored by Bell with assists from Reese Burek.  The first was the final pass of multiple quick passes around the outside by the Fairport offense.  The second was scored during an extraman offense by the Red Raiders and was an outside shot.  Fairport led 6-4 after three quarters.

In the final quarter, Fairport added another two goals before Canandaigua scored.  Alex Nicastro scored off an effort by assister Bell.  Bell drove to the cage off a one-on-one with a short stick.  After the slide, he crossed the crease to find Nicastro.  The final Red Raider goal was scored by Burek.  He drove from behind the cage and shot backhanded into the net.  Canandaigua’s final goal was scored by Aaron D’Agostino off an strong defensive ride.  D’Agostino checked the ball out of the cross of Josh Gangarossa and directed the ball into the net.  Gangarossa finished with 8 recorded saves.
