Andrews ties assist mark
Senior attack Derek Andrews of Iroquois tied the Section VI record with 10 assists in the game as the Chiefs defeated Lake Shore, 18-3. Andrews also scored three times in Iroquois’ Class B league opener Wednesday.
Andrews, a four-year starter and team co-captain, was a second team All-Western New York selection and first team All-ECIC selection last season.
“Derek just got real unselfish today and started distributing the ball, and people were finishing for him,” said Iroquois coach Tom Kincella.
Iroquois is 2-1 overall with a loss to Webster Thomas of Section V and a 10-9 win over Oswego of Section III.
Andrews shares the assist record with Phil Archibald (Hamburg, 1998), Nate Hill (Hamburg, 2000), Zach Williams (Silver Creek, 2010) and Brian Weil (Amherst, 2000). The state record is 14 set by Bruce Corbridge of Garden City in 1963.
Elsewhere, Connor Fields scored seven goals as Bishop Timon-St. Jude opened its Monsignor Martin Association schedule with an 18-7 win at Nichols.
Orchard Park ran its record to 3-0 with a 16-5 triumph over McDowell of Erie, Pa. Jack Crowley scored six times and added an assist and Kevin Goltz scored four times for the Quakers.
Colin Greenway had five goals and three assists as Williamsville East rolled past Williamsville South, 12-2.
