Lancers trounce outmanned Tigers

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — AMHERST — Lewiston-Porter was supposed to win Saturday night’s federation hockey game against the Amherst Tigers. The Lancers’ top players made sure of it.

Justin Nichols had a goal and three assists and Joseph Langer scored twice and added a helper as the Lancers cruised to a 6-2 win over the undermanned Tigers in a Division III contest at the Northtown Center. It was the fourth straight victory for the Lancers (7-2), while Amherst (0-7) played the majority of the game with only 10 skaters.

“It was one of those games you could look at as maybe a trap game, but the kids did a good job of staying disciplined, not getting caught up and not playing selfish hockey,” L-P coach Kevin Kirsch said. “They did what they needed to do to get the ‘W.’ “

Nichols opened the scoring with his first goal of the season in league play just 1:06 into the first period, taking a pass from Langer at middle of the blue line and sending a weak wrist shot through a screen and past Amherst goalie Zack Clor.

Langer added on 1:47 later, bouncing off a would-be Tiger check before taking a pass from Nichols and streaking down the right board. Langer cut to the middle and fired a sharp wrister past Clor. Pavel Kuvnutov picked up the secondary assist.

Amherst got on the board 7:40 in, with the speedy Peter Sinagra taking a pass in stride from Will Grisko and beating L-P goalie Chris Carrigan on a breakaway.

Lew-Port (7-2) added another tally on a late power play, drawn when Joseph DeMunda was crosschecked in the Amherst zone. Michael Mokhiber passed from the right corner to Nichols on the blue line, who then quickly moved the puck diagonally across the zone to Scott Meogrossi for an easy tap in.
