Churchville-Chili 16 - HF-L 13

-  SPORTSFIVE REPORT:   Churchville-Chili scored three of the last four to secure the 16-13 win over HF-L and at 8-0 remains one of only four undefeated teams left in the section. The Saints played strong in the beginning and end of the game but, in what has become a pattern, they could not pull away from their opponents and allowed HF-L to stay in the game well into the second half. The Cougars led going into the second half before Churchville-Chili outscored them 7-3 in the second 24 minutes.

Like in their last contest against Brockport, the Saints took an early lead before allowing their opponents back into the game. Today, Churchville-Chili scored three straight in the first two minutes of the game. Dan Bonafede, Jason Tebo and Jacob Buck each scored in the first two minutes. The teams then began trading goals with Churchville-Chili leading 7-4 with 10:30 remaining in the second quarter.

HF-L scored three unanswered goals to for a 7-7 tie. Thomas Bailey, Garrett Ruff and freshman Andrew Mapstone each scored one goal. Although the Saints then added a single goal (Tebo unassisted), the Cougars added three more (six of seven straight). HF-L led 10-8 with three minutes remaining in the half. As notes above, the Saints stepped up their scoring after halftime and secured the lead going into the fourth (14-12).

A major factor in the turnaround was Bonafede who scored three of his five goals in the second half and was instrumental in possession time at the face off draw (8/12). He finished the contest 15/24 and led his team in ground balls with seven.
