“That was a massive goal for us. It was their Homecoming Weekend and their crowd was really riled up. Most of our guys did a good job tuning it out. Still, it was a little precarious being up only 1-0. But when we scored our second goal, it took the crowd out of the game.”
The Lakers were credited with an 11-6 shot advantage, with Heighington making four saves for the shutout.
“Andy came out and made all the plays he had to,” said Waterbury. “Defensively, we played very well.
“Nick Pourakis, Matt Hamilton and Wade Goehle played every second this weekend and did a great job. Jason Baker also did a good job playing out of position every time we had a player go down with an injury.”
The Cardinals return home to host New Paltz on Friday at 4 p.m. and Oneonta on Saturday at 1 p.m.
