CBA (20-9-3) played better in the second period. The Brothers put 12 shots on goal, including two point-blank attempts by Brad Medici and Patrick Raike. Greg Hitchko's superb goaltending was the only thing that prevented CBA from tying the game.
"I really thought that we controlled a lot of the play and had the better scoring chances throughout the game," Kuhl said.
Caruso gave Shen a 3-0 lead 11 seconds into the third period when his wrist shot from the blue line eluded Blood. Andrew Sellner scored 4:09 later off a pass from Marc Meybaum, but Nathan Palmer added the final goal with 7:37 left by finishing a 2-on-1 break with Jesse Elliot.
Shen advances to the regional final this weekend against Section I champion Suffern.
"We're not letting up now that we're moving on. From here on out, everybody's got to be clicking, or we're not going to go any further in the playoffs," said de la Rocha.
CBA earned an at-large berth into states, but the Brothers suffered a 7-6 loss to Clarkstown North Saturday.""
