Neither team stumbled last week against a series of SCAC Metro division foes, with the boys Hornets quite impressive in last Tuesday’s game at West Genesee as it took out the Wildcats 3-0.Like so many other defensive sides, WG had no answer for F-M’s Cheech Pagano, who netted two of his team’s three goals. Ziad Abdul-Malak had the other goal, also getting an assist as Ryan Pollard got an assist, too.And it wasn’t like WG lacked serious opportunities. All through the night, it attacked, but none of the Wildcats’ nine shots got past Chris Szidat or Will Summers.
