The Fulton Bantam hockey team was named Snowbelt League champions after it won its division in the JAM tournament.
Anton Porcari, Caleb Zehr, Evan Beckwith and Cameron Clarke achieved playmakers during the tournament while Austin Beckwith scored a hat trick.
Fulton 8, Salmon River 0: Raider Austin Beckwith opened scoring early in the first period, accepting a pass in front of the net from Evan Beckwith.
Fulton’s Ben Nelson netted one, William Fruce assisting, before Clarke scored on a slap shot, thanks to a passing play between Evan Beckwith and Porcari.
In period two, Porcari sent a cross-ice pass to Carr who skated it in to score. Austin Beckwith flipped the puck in over the goalie’s shoulder, Clarke and Evan Beckwith assisting, to close the period. Clarke opened the third period accepting a pass from Michael Welch and netting a slap shot.
Every time Tim calls me and tells me how nice the weather is back home, I can’t help but think of all the times when it was sunny and warm here and I called him to see how much snow had fallen the night before.
It’s not cold here, but I still feel like the shoe is on the other foot. It has been up in the 80s a number of times recently, but Oswego County temperatures have been soaring not far behind us. It’s hard to believe.
You see, this was the year that I planned to come home early enough to get in on the bullhead fishing. Now, I’m hoping that you all will save a few for me and that the ones still in the lake will still be biting some at least when I get home.
