Exploding for five goals in the first period, the Tri County Midget hockey team went on to defeat Canandaigua 7-3 today at Brockport.

The first goals of the season by both Pat Holzschuh and Luke Grabb highlighted the huge first period uprising which also included tallies by Tucker Trask, James Hapeman and Josh Gimeli. Trask’s goal opened the scoring surge.

Canandaigua did cut the deficit to 5-2 in the second period but would get no closer.

Patrick Ricker answered with a goal for Tri County before the end of the second period. He then rounded out the scoring with a breakaway goal in the third period.

Now at 2-8-2, Tri County next faces a rematch at Canandaigua on Saturday.
