Kenmore East scores last-minute, breakaway goal to top West

(Continued)

AMHERST —

Kenmore East goalie Trevor Taggart got beat early but was solid the rest of the way, anchoring the Bulldogs with 11 saves.

West got on the board first less than three minutes into the game when Stephen Hermann tapped in a loose puck after Jeff Becker’s shot trickled past Taggart.

East answered at the end of a power play late in the first period. Diliberto made a nice move around his man on a rush and had his shot stopped by Guetti, but Tony Amoia crashed the net and finished the rebound. Jeff White also picked up an assist on the play.

East scored again four and a half minutes into the second period to take a 2-1 lead. Brett Wigdorski’s point shot was knocked out of the air but fell right on the stick of Diliberto, who scored from the circle.

East had a power play with four minutes left in the game after West had tied it, but the man-advantage didn’t produce a shot on goal. East’s power play went 1 for 3 on the night while West’s was 0 for 2.

Then Wigdorski’s breakaway goal with 58.2 seconds left gave the senior one last play to remember against Kenmore West.

“It was a great goal. It’s my last home rival game and it meant a lot to me and my team,” Wigdorski said. “This is going to mean a lot in school (on Friday).”
