A promising first quarter didn’t mean much to Fayetteville-Manlius when things unraveled in the second half and handed it a 8-4 home loss to Victor on Saturday.
After the Hornets opened with the 3-0 spurt in that first quarter, their offense disappeared and wasn’t able to bounce back at all. Their strong defense was able to keep the ship afloat for the time being, only allowing a goal in the second quarter, but after halftime, nothing seemed to go their way, as Victor scored seven goals to their one.
F-M (8-7, 4-5) didn’t get the kind of scoring that it has gotten in the past, either. Four different players scored, but for the first time this season, nobody had multiple goals, and that’s going to deny you of a win any day of the week.
The four players who scored for the Hornets were Tommy Farry, Nick Papa, Mikey Porter, and Jack Shanley.
They will try to end their two-game losing streak when they finish the regular season and host Syracuse on Tuesday.
