Iroquois-Alden 6, Amherst 0

Tyler Birdd’s late 1st period power play goal proved to be the game winner as Iroquois-Alden routed Amherst 6-0 at HarborCenter.

Zach Mossman had three assists, Guasteferro and Wojtkowiak added two helpers each in the win. Nicholas Capozzi made 26 saves in the shutout victory.

The Amherst Tigers will look to break into the win column this Thursday when they face Kenmore East at the Northtown Center.

Kenmore West 2, West Seneca West 1

Sophomore Jacob Vacanti was in the right place at the right time Sunday night in Kenmore West’s 2-1 win over the West Seneca West Indians. Vacanti scored both Blue Devils goals; the first came on the power play off a solid feed from Mike Barker that tied the game up 1-1.

Vacanti scored the game winner in the final minute of regulation when he knocked home a rebound that sealed the deal for Ken West.

West Seneca West scored the game’s opening goal on the power play, courtesy of defenseman Mike Glinski. The senior fired a low wrister that beat goaltender Chris Cairns between the legs. The goal came just as the Indians killed off a two-man advantage.

Griffin McAndrews was solid between the pipes for WSW, stopping 12 shots. Cairns made 17 in the Blue Devils victory.

It was a nice bounce back win for Kenmore West after Friday night’s loss to Grand Island.

Mike Barker assisted on Vacanti’s first goal.

“This game really meant something to me,” Barker said. “They beat us last year in Sectionals. Today I think we set the tone and we’re gonna keep on rolling. We have to keep the right mindset.”

This is Vacanti’s first season on Varsity. He was named player of the game by his coaches.
