Midget Panthers Champions

The West Seneca Midget Panthers defeated Buffalo Bisons 2-0 to win the 16U MOHL Playoff Championship. Goaltender Joe Pisto was strong in net for the shutout. Jake Regian scored the Championship winning goal and Mitchell Brown banged home a rebound for the insurance goal, both in the 2nd period. It was a total team effort the rest of the way as the Panthers smothered the Bisons with wave after wave of puck pressure. Joe Gorman narrowly missed an empty net goal with 8 seconds left, but by that time the outcome was already decided with West Seneca coming out as Champions. In order to get to the Championship Game, the Panthers endured 2 come-from-behind victories over the Lockport Lock Monsters and the West Seneca Jets. In the quarterfinal game, Lockport jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the 1st period and 3-0 after the second. Zach Nikander gave the Panthers hope when he scored at 12:26 of the 3rd period. Down 3-1 with time winding down in the 3rd period, Peter Borzillieri scored twice in the last 4 minutes to send the game into overtime. Still tied at 3 after a 10-minute overtime period, the teams went to an NHL-style shootout. Austin Reichert and Jake Regian scored in the shootout and Joe Pisto stopped both Lockport shots he faced to secure the win and advance to the Semi-FInals. In the all West Seneca Semi-Final game, Josh Harris gave the Jets leads of 1-0 and 2-1, but the Panthers quickly rallied each time and the 1st period ended in a 2-2 tie. The 2 teams from West Seneca played a tight game in the 2nd period that saw no scoring. With 7:16 remaining, Will Lindner scored the go-ahead goal to send the Panthers to the Finals with a 3-2 win. However, the star of the game was Joe Drajem who was dominant on defense and led the way on offense with a goal and 2 assists.
