In Round 1 of the Chaminade-St. Anthony’s annual best-of-three series, it was a game of runs.
The Flyers, who took both regular-season meetings last year before falling in the CHSAA final to St. Anthony’s for tht third straight year, prevailed 6-5.
Chaminade won it on a goal by University of Virginia-bound attackman Ryan Lukacovic with 2:08 remaining. Prior to that, Lukacovc, guarded mainly by Binghamton-hound George Deignan, had been held scoreless.
After St. Anthony’s took a 1-0 lead in the opening seconds, Chaminade got goals from five different players, including two long poles, to take. 5-1 lead.
The Friars, playing without two key starters – goalie Kieran Burke (mono) and LSM/defenseman Tim Stackpole (broken hip) – rallied to tie it at 5-5 late in the fourth, as the Flyers endured a long scoring drought. UNC-bound midfielder Brin Sherlock had three goals during the run.
