Frank Emmer gave BH-BL a glimmer of hope when he scored with 3:43 left in the first quarter to pull the Spartans within 3-1. But goals by Lucas Maloney and McKinney late in the period put Niskayuna ahead 5-1.
Nash made three more saves to start the second quarter before Niskayuna struck for three goals to increase its lead to 8-1. BH-BL never got closer than six goals the rest of the way.
McKinney, Brian Schlansker and Colin Foster all added a pair of goals for the Silver Warriors, who advance to Saturday's regional final.
Emmer tallied twice for BH-BL, with Evan Nusbaum and Anthony Lauria adding goals.""
