Oswego has taken a 1-0 lead over Elmira at the midway point of the first period. Ryan Woodward, behind the Elmira net, banked the puck off a defenseman. Before that, Elmira had most of the scoring chances. Oswego goalie Ryan Scott was shaken up at about the six minute mark, but looks fine.
And the first period ends 1-0. Shots are 10-9 in favor of Oswego. The Soaring Eagles will have 1:34 of a power play to work with to open the second.
Things were quiet in the second period until Jan Velich lifted a backhand past Ryan Scott to make it 1-1 at 6:19. It’s still that way with 12 minutes to play in the second.
Lots of action but no goals as the period ends 1-1. They are using a five minute overtime then shootout format, so no matter what, I’ll be back in Rochester by midnight.
Ryan Ellis makes it 2-1 Oswego at 4:22. He took a pass, broke down the right side, and beat Casey Tuttle high-stick.
About eight minutes to go now…Oswego going to a 2-3 forecheck, playing a little more conservatively now.
Two quick Oswego goals seal this one. Musselwhite on a three-on-one and then, after Elmira pulls Tuttle, Whitehead into the empty net with 1:54 to play.
..and that’s the final. Just turned in my ballot for the all-tourney team. Will post the team when it’s announced.
