Canfield defeated by Brush Arcs
After getting beaten by the Brush Arcs (5-1, 6-1) twice this season by scores of 7-1, 10-0, the Canfield Cardinals did not have high expectations entering into the third and final meeting of the season against the Arcs Jan. 4 at the Ice Zone. With a solid goal tending performance from sophomore Patrick Byrne stopping 32 of 35 shots, and a defense led by senior captain, Nick Crescimanno, the Cards kept the Arcs scoreless into the second period, only to fall 3-1. Crescimanno scored unassisted for the Cardinal goal. Canfield is winless in four GCHSHL contests and 2-6 overall. The Cardinals will take on Nordonia on Jan. 11 at the Ice Zone with a 4:15p.m. puck drop.
