Irondequoit Wins Battle Of State Titans

Irondequoit Wins Battle Of State Titans

Eagles get three in 3rd period to get past AQ
Connor Hynes netted the game winning goal for Irondequoit just a minute after Aquinas had tied and the Eagles tacked on two more to beat the Irish 5-2 in a battle of the top two Division II teams in the state at Lakeshore Ice Arena. 

Jimmy Diliberto erased a 2-0 deficit for Aquinas all by himself. In the 2nd period, Diliberto won a faceoff towards the Irondequoit net, chased the puck down and shoveled it in to get AQ within 2-1. Early in the third period, Matthew Depetres fed Diliberto in the slot. Diliberto backhanded a shot through the five-hole to knot the score at two. 

Hynes shot was a bit of a bad break for Aquinas. It was deflected by an AQ defenseman almost the moment after the puck left Hynes' stick. The shot just ducked under the crossbar for a 3-2 lead. Just 35 seconds later, Mitchell Culver slid a pass along the backboards to Louis Cup on the other side of the net. Cup jammed the puck inside the post for a 4-2 lead. 

Anthony Thurston capped the scoring with just under three minutes to play. Thurston also opened the scoring just 51 seconds after the opening faceoff. Matthew Comanzo made it 2-0 six minutes later when his low shot from the point avoided a gaggle of legs and found the net. 

Irondequoit improves to 11-1 while Aquinas suffered its first loss and dropped to 9-1-2.
