Thursday January 23, 2014 | By:The Sun Staff | Sports
The Hamburg Hawks Bantam Travel hockey team utilized outstanding special teams play to dispatch the visiting Cazenovia Chiefs 3-1 on Jan. 8, in a WNYAHL battle at the Nike Base Ice Arena.
After Carl Rolston scored to give the Caz team the only lead it would enjoy for the contest, only twenty eight seconds into the second period, Keegan O’Connor tied the game off a Jordan Rusin assist. Hamburg’s Owen Bean scored a power play goal from Jeremy Marszelak for a 2-1 advantage. Ryan Sortisio then tallied for the home squad three minutes later off a feed from Josh Cook.
Marszelak finished a Bryan Solinski pass for another power play goal for a 4-1 advantage. The Hawks were able to kill off all five Caz power play advantages. Ryan Thompson scored off a Colin May assist and O’Connor scored his second of the game with assists by Ryan Hughes and Anthony Obrochta to finish the scoring.
Jonah Kozak and Josh Kacalski, both of Frontier Middle, had some early chances and later, Tony Castellena was on the doorstep of the goal, set up by the puck movement of Tim Darling and Derek Misel, but all were turned aside by Hamburg keeper Joe LoTempio.
