Ryan Speciale (Corning West) led the offense with three goals and an assist.  Ryan Grogan (Churchville) registered a goal and three asists while William Ardolino (William Floyd) and Cory Mee (Churchville) each had a goal and an assist.  Tony Micelotta (Irondequoit), Josh Mateo (Waterloo), James Moss (Hilton), Ben Rossignolo (Churchville), and Chase Bailey (Corning West) each scored once for the blue and gold.

Marshall Merritt (Marcellus) made 23 saves in net for the Pioneers.
