Massena will no advance to host either Shenendahoah and LaSalle from Section II in a state quarterfinal matchup at Massena Arena on Saturday. Massena’s forechecking resulted in regaining control in the Canton end. Matt Derouchie worked the puck back to the point where Gage Fiacco drilled the puck toward net. The riser was redirected downward and past Canton goalie Jerod Burchell – first credited to Logan Chilton. However, after the game it was confirmed that Jack Logan, both lined up uncontested in front of the net, apparently was the actual deflector. Time of the goal: 8:19 of the middle period. Massena keeper Nate Moffitt stopped 20 shots in the Massena net, while Burchell was also stellar with 27 saves for Canton that closes out its season at 11-9-1.
