Fulton Bantams win tourney

Submitted by Anna Clarke

The Fulton Bantam hockey team, sponsored by Comfort Windows & Doors and Fulton Savings Bank, ended its season with a 2-1 win over Oswego in the final game of the Boulter Classic Tournament in Webster, outside Rochester.

The Raiders also shut out Oswego 3-0, topped Southtown 7-4 and Canandaigua 8-2 during the tournament.

Fulton 3, Oswego 0

Raider Evan Beckwith put his team on the board, skating the puck through the Buc defense and landing a shot late in period one. Mid second period, Fulton’s Seth Cooney took advantage of a power play, Beckwith assisting to get ahead by two.

Soon after, team captain Nolan Bonnie scored the final goal for the Raiders, taking a pass from behind the net from defenseman Zach Tulowiecki.

Fulton goalie Adam Bleiweiss made 11 saves in net.

Fulton 7, Southtown 4

The Raiders were down by one mid first period. Will Rattray tipped in Tulowiecki’s shot from the blue line, Nick Dingman also assisting, only for Southtown to score two in a row.

Beckwith netted one off Dingman’s rebound with less than a minute remaining the period. The Raiders tallied two, first with Beckwith taking a feed from Cooney, then with Cooney scoring with a wrap around goal.

Southtown narrowed the gap by one before Tyler Samson sent the puck into the lower corner, thanks to a passing play between Caleb Clarke and Dingman, earning Dingman a playmaker.

Mid period three, Raider assistant captain Richie King scored on a 3-on-5 power play, Beckwith assisting. Cooney sealed the win, accepting a pass from Beckwith and scoring on a power play.

Bleiweiss turned aside 9 shots for Fulton.

Fulton 8, Canandaigua 2

At a one-point deficit mid first period, Cooney caught a pass in front of the net from Clarke to draw even. With seconds left in the period, King sent a cross-ice pass to Beckwith who skated it in to score number 40 for the season.

Beckwith netted his second of the game off a King assist before the Knights made it a one-point game early in the second. Beckwith went on a scoring spree, tallying two more in a row; one a short handed goal off Cooney’s rebound, then a one time shot thanks to a behind the net passing play between Samson and Dingman.

Samson scored number 15 on the season with a backhand shot, Beckwith and Bonnie assisting to close the period.

Beckwith’s second short-handed goal of the game came midway through the third stanza. Bonnie netted an upper corner shot, Rattray assisting to end the game.

Bleiweiss made 16 stops for the Raiders.

Championship: Fulton 2, Oswego 1

After a scoreless first period, Rattray received a pass from Bonnie, skated the puck in front of the net and scored. Soon after, Oswego’s Bryce Phillips sunk a lower corner shot, Zach Sova assisting, to tie the game.

The third stanza saw excellent goaltending from both Bleiwiess and Buccaneer Nick Back. Tulowiecki accepted a cross-ice pass from Clarke and scored his first goal of the season with a game winning shot from the blue line.

Bleiweiss made 8 saves for Fulton and was named game MVP

The Fulton Bantams are lead by head coach Paul Clarke and assistants Jeff Tulowiecki, Paul Bleiweiss and Bill Beckwith.

G. Ray Bodley High School senior Mikayla Guernsey led the Section III all-star girls’ bowling team to victory at the state title championship March 2 on Long Island.

Section III girls won over Section VI by 53 pins with a score of 5772. The boys’ Section III team came in third place behind Sections XI and VIII.

Guernsey, 17, averaged a score of 213.33 over six games at Babylon Lanes in West Babylon, N.Y. Hers was the highest average of the six girls on her team and of the whole girls’ championship.

Guernsey’s fellow Fultonian and all-star teammate, Kate Ely, a junior at G. Ray Bodley, averaged 158.50.

Another Fulton junior, Kyle Denson, averaged 174.16 with the Section III boys’ all-star team.

“It was really, really cool … getting to compete against other people we don’t usually compete against (and) meeting new people,” Guernsey said of the state championship.

“We knew we had a really good chance, but I didn’t think we were going to win,” she added. “I was surprised — we were very happy.”

As a graduating senior, Guernsey said she will miss her teammates and the “close bonding” they have shared over her high school career.

“We’re all close friends, so I’m going to miss that a lot,” she said.

Guernsey’s father, Mike Guernsey, said the Fulton bowling coach is Mike Tryniski of Lakeview Lanes.

Mikayla Guernsey, who has been bowling since age 5, said she plans to study accounting at Robert Morris University in Chicago, Illinois.

She said the school is known for its bowling program.

Hannibal girls’ basketball team reflects on good season

By Rob Tetro

This season, the Hannibal girls’ varsity basketball team had an 11-7 overall record, earning them a spot in the Sectional Playoffs.

But the team’s season came to an end Feb. 15 with a 58-47 loss to Bishop Ludden in the opening round of the Class B, Section 3 playoffs.

As the winter sports season concludes, the Lady Warriors bid farewell to eight seniors. Devin Sorell, Gabby Griffin, Sarah Otis, Hunter Beckwith, Kaitin Taylor, Kaylee Esposito, Erin Sly and foreign exchange student Keti Chapiashvili (manager) have all finished their Hannibal girls’ basketball careers.

Despite the team’s disappointing loss in the Sectionals, Hannibal girls’ varsity basketball coach Justin Enright said the program continued to improve this season.

Enright said the Lady Warriors’ 11 regular season wins was one of the best regular seasons Hannibal has had since becoming a Class B school. Two of the Lady Warriors’ wins this season came on the road against state-ranked Bishop Ludden and Skaneateles.

Enright credits his players for battling through any adversity that came their way.

“I am very proud of the way that this team continued to battle throughout the season. “, he said.

Hannibal’s successful season also produced a few individual honors. Gabby Griffin and Spencer Kenney earned All-League Honorable Mention honors. Devin Sorell had a memorable senior season, which didn’t go unnoticed.  On top of receiving First Team All-League honors, Sorell also was named Class B, Section 3 Player Of The Year.
