Crunch's Skid Continues With Loss to Falcons


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Syracuse opened the scoring before the five-minute mark, but the lead lasted less than two minutes.

The Falcons took advantage of multiple odd-man rushes against the Crunch to rattle off five-straight goals, as Syracuse fell to Springfield, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

The Crunch has lost five straight, and given up five or more goals in each of those contests.

“We’ve got to be better, that’s what it comes down to,” said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. “We play good for 20 minutes, and then we give up an odd-man rush here and there. You can’t be doing that all night.”

Crunch Battle Back Twice, But Fall to Americans


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Despite controlling the play for long stretches, Syracuse kept digging out of holes created by defensive lapses.

The Crunch battled back from a pair of two-goal deficits but the Americans’ fifth goal proved to be the difference, as Syracuse fell to Rochester, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. The Crunch has dropped four straight, and earned one point in that stretch.

“I thought in the last three out of four games we should have had points,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “We got one point from Rochester last Wednesday, but Friday night we should have had points and tonight we should have had points. We scored nine goals against this team in the last two games and we came out with one point. It’s not good enough.

“The second half of the season you have to keep the puck out of your net. It comes down to good defense, and that’s all six guys on the ice.”
