Canton Ties Massena; Loses To McQuaid
The Canton Boys Varsity Hockey Team came out of its league rivalry match-up against the Massena Red Raiders with a 1-1 tie on Friday.
The Canton Pavilion was packed to the brim Friday night, with both schools’ student sections filling nearly half of the arena.
In front of the packed crowd, Massena struck first banging in a lose puck to make the game 1-0 half way through the first, and though Canton out shot Massena by over 10 shots, Massena had the 1-0 edge heading into the second.
Canton struck back early in the second when sophomore forward Rhett Palmer carried the puck into the Raider zone and ripped a shot off of the end glass, which took a Canton bounce onto the stick of junior forward Trey Bessette who buried the rebound past the Massena goaltender.
Sophomore goaltender Hayden Todd was solid between the pipes, fending off 31 shots.
Canton dropped a 2-0 decision to state ranked Rochester McQuaid-Jesuit (Rochester) in a non-league match-up at the SUNY Canton Roo’s House on Sunday.
