Eddie Lynch (Lewiston-Porter HS) scored his team’s first and last two goals of their game as he led Buffalo Senior All-Star Hockey Team past the Rochester Senior All-Star Hockey Team, 9-2 to win the Scotty Bowman Cup. It was the 2nd game of a three game 18th Annual Scotty Bowman Cup series played at Buffalo’s KeyBank Center.

The game was played in two halves instead of the traditional three periods by teams made up of high school seniors from the Buffalo and Rochester areas.

Buffalo led after the first half, 2-1. Buffalo’s goals were scored by Lynch and Jacob Cyrek (Starpoint HS). Rochester’s lone goal was scored by Nick Sellitto (Webster-Schroeder HS).

Net Action

Buffalo opened the scoring at :13 mark of the 2nd half on a goal by Easton Larrabee (Niagara Wheatfield HS). Rochester cut Buffalo’s lead to one, 3-2, on a goal by Josh Barnes (Canandaigua HS). But it was as close as Rochester would get.

Buffalo scored the next six goals to wrap up the game. In order, they were scored by CJ Hurley (Amherst HS), John Baird-Gajdos (Clarence HS), Matt Holst (Bishop-Timon HS), Frank Palladino (Williamsville South HS) and Lynch with the final two.
