The Bishop Canevin Hockey team used a four goal second period outburst to erase a strong Burrell start to defeat the Buccaneers 7-4 at the Pittsburgh Ice Arena on Monday night.
Burrell scored first just over six minutes into the first period on a power play goal. The Bucs added two more goals less than two minutes apart and owned a three goal lead with just over three minutes remaining in the period. But the Crusaders responded only 28 seconds after Burrell’s third goal. Then 23 seconds later, Canevin cut the lead to one on a goal by Turner Anselm to close the scoring in the opening period.
Bishop Canevin used the momentum from the end of the first period to start the second period. Tony Cicchino scored to tie the game just 53 seconds into the middle frame. Ian Lecker had an assist for the second straight goal. Then, just 1:40 later BC took the lead on a goal by Ryan Saginaw. Michael Parzynski III added the assist. The goal was Saginaw’s second point of the game, as he assisted on the Crusaders’ first goal. Burrell tied the game at four, but it only took seven seconds for a Turner Anselm pass to lead to Canevin’s fifth goal. Less than two minutes after that, Ben Ondrejko scored a power play goal to give BC a two goal lead after two periods.
Anselm scored his second goal of the game late in the third period to close out the scoring. Braehm Brown provided the assist.
Bishop Canevin closes the regular season on Thursday April 1 against Morgantown.
