WEBSTER THOMAS SCORES EARLY AND OFTEN IN 8-0 WIN OVER IRONDEQUOITJan 14, 2022
The Webster Thomas Titans ushered in the New Year in dominating fashion, scoring early and often on their way to an explosive 8-0 win over the Irondequoit Eagles Tuesday at Webster Ice Arena.
The Titans controlled the game from the onset, scoring three goals in the opening period before tacking on five more in the second to put contest out of reach.
Dylan LaChance paved the way offensively with a season-high four-point on two goals and two assists while Jack Stappenbeck notched three assists in the win for Webster, who improved to 7-2 on the season.
Ethan Stappenbeck also scored twice while goaltenders Jackson Gruttadauria and Michael Nappi combined to make five saves with Gruttadauria earning the win. The five shots on goal by Irondequoit were the fewest allowed in a single game by Webster all season.
Webster set the tone early, with Mike Swartzenberg beating Irondequoit goalie Will Napierala less than a minute after the opening face-off to give the Titans a 1-0 lead. Ethan Stappenbeck netted his first of two on the night on the power-play at 10:04 and Jason Tucker’s first goal of the season at 13:27 provided Webster with a 3-0 cushion heading into the intermission.
The Titans came out firing on all cylinders to begin the second period with LaChance factoring in on each of Webster’s first three goals.
LaChance set-up Ethan Stappennbeck’s second of the night before scoring back-to-back goals less than five minutes apart to extend Webster’s lead to 6-0 midway through the middle frame.
Sam Nesbitt converted on the power-play and Michael Dowden found the back of the net with his first of the season in the final minute of the period to seal the 8-0 win for the Titans.
