Two second period goals by Jacob Wilk lead a 4 goal second period that put Bellmore Merrick ahead to stay in the JV Championship, who defeated the Massapequa Chiefs 5-0 in the contest held tonight at Long Beach Arena.
In a match-up between the two teams with the best in-season records, this match-up is widely regarded as a preview to a Varsity rivalry in two years time.
After a scoreless first period, the Bulldogs came out of the gate in the second with a quick goal by Sean Hayes at 1:35, followed up 27 seconds later by the first of two from Wilk, who added a power-play tally 3 minutes later.
Bellmore-Merrick goalie Michael Sykora was up to the task and turned away all of the Chiefs shots he faced.
Anthony Khaimov and Ryan Friedman each had a goal and an assist and Kyle Lavelle had two assists to round out the Bulldogs attack.
