Cazenovia Hockey scores 15 goals against Fulton – Eagle News Online


Perhaps it’s fair to say that the Cazenovia ice hockey team didn’t like that important games against the region’s established Division I powerhouses at the Morrisville State IcePlex were postponed – twice.

First, it was the scheduled Jan. 7 game with defending division champion Syracuse, something that won’t be made up for until early February.

Then it was last Tuesday’s showdown with state no. No. 4-ranked Baldwinsville, who the Lakers had been hoping to catch at a perfect time after their tough win over the state’s top-ranked Division II team, Pelham, in the Duke Schneider Memorial Tournament Finals at Skaneateles.

Cazenovia will hopefully face the Bees this Saturday at 1 p.m. after facing Fayetteville-Manlius on Tuesday. In the meantime, the Lakers have shown how eager they are to compete.

Against Fulton last Thursday night at the State Fair Coliseum, Cazenovia would put the puck in the net an average of once every three minutes beating the Red Raiders 15-1.

By the time the second period ended, it was already 11-1 and three different Lakers – Forrest Ives, Andrew Murray and Jake Owens – had recorded hat tricks, with Gage Marshall adding a goal.

Ives and Owens both tacked on another goal during a productive third period where Cy McCrink, always busy in net, stopped 20 of Fulton’s 21 shots.

Logan Hull, James LaFever, Jack Donlin and Gage Marshall each had single goals, with Donlin adding three assists. Ives and Owens each had two assists, as did Tyson Frederiksen, with assists for Bryson Weaver, Ashley O’Hara, Gavin Winn, Russ LaFever, Dan Scholl, Will Penoyer and James Dapson.
