Quarter Finals: From Thirty-One to Sixteen
Wednesday: DAY IN REVIEW: The quarter finals were played today, and there were fourteen winners and fourteen teams that ended their seasons. Following the season trend, almost all were mismatches with only the Irondequoit at Thomas game close, for most of the game. As expected, all the higher seeded teams won today and the top four seeded teams are now set for the semifinals.
Irondequoit came right out of the box and ready to play, scoring the first three goals, but David Petz scored two of his 4g and Ronnie Garrow added another to leave the teams tied at 3-3 at the end of the first quarter. Thomas took off in the second quarter outscoring the Eagles 4-1 and that three-goal difference at the half was enough for the Titans to win 11-8. The second half saw the teams scoring at both ends of the field but when the score was 7-8 for the Titans, they scored three goals in a row to take final control. Spencer Cade score three goals for Thomas. Noah Gibson led the scoring for Irondequoit with 3g-1a and Ronnie Garrow had 2g-1a for the Eagles who finish their season at 7-9, Thomas (13-1) moves on to the semifinals at Victor on Saturday.
