– BUFFALO – The game between the Buffalo Prep All-Stars and Rochester Prep All-Stars wasn’t even five minutes old and three goals had already been scored. All by Buffalo.
Buffalo never looked back. They went on to beat Rochester, 10-0 to win the Rick Martin Memorial Cup, the final game of the three-game Bowman Cup series between teams from Buffalo and Rochester at the First Niagara Center.
The first three Buffalo goals were scored by Griffin (unassisted), Mike Bevilacqua (Justin Cmunt and Collin Rutherford assisting) and Matt Jakubowski (Chris Berger assist).
By the end of the first half (the game was played in two halves) Buffalo had built up that lead to 7-0. The next four goals were tallied by Zacarey Herrmann (Justin Cmunt and Nick Alfieri assisting), Berger (Josh Biasillo and Matt Jakubowski assisting), Carson Gicewicz (Sam Jones and Brian Kowalski assisting) and Griffin Lunn (Harrison Oates and Matt Damico assisting).
Buffalo rounded out the scoring with a trio of goals in the second half. David Baskerville (Lunn and Gicewicz assist), Justin Cmunt (Gicewicz and Dominic Dockery assist) and Nick Alfieri (Lunn and Herrmann assisting) scored.
