There was a big hit, a fight and two goals — and that was just the first 3:34.
Mike Halmo’s bout and goals by Yanni Gourde and Cameron Darcy got the Crunch out to a fast start against the Americans, as Syracuse defeated Rochester, 5-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.
“I thought we were ready for this game tonight,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Obviously, Mike Halmo set the tone right away, right off the bat. He’s a competitor and he’s a guy that when he gets involved physically, he’s at his best.”
