West Seneca East 6, Brewtown 5: In arguably the most entertaining game of the day, the Trojans defeated Brewtown; but not before BT made things very interesting by keeping the pressure on until the final horn sounded. Justin Groux evened things up early in the 3 rd period as Brewtown made this game very interesting. However, the comeback fell just short. Connor Sullivan had a Hat-Trick for BT and Groux ended the day with 2 goals and two assists. Noah Bily of the current Section 6 Champion Trojans netted the GWG with 8:24 to play in the 3rd. Tyler Arndt also had a Hat-Trick and Connor Mentel ended the day with 1 goal and 3 assists.
