Game Recap

Lukosevicius leads Belleville Sens to 6-4 win over Syracuse

December 3, 2022

A Jarid Lukosevicius hat trick paced the Belleville Senators to a 6-4 victory over the Syracuse Crunch on Friday Night at CAA Arena.

Syracuse opened the scoring at the 4:57 mark of the first period when Gemel Smith found the back of the net with a heavy wrister from the high slot. The Crunch would extend their advantage just past the mid-way point of the frame through a Jack Thompson shot. Later in the stanza, Belleville responded as Rourke Chartier got the home side on the scoreboard, notching his team-leading 11th of the campaign on the man advantage to make it 2-1 after one period of play.

In the second, an opportunistic Jarid Lukosevicius capitalized twice in the stanza to give the Senators a 3-1 lead after forty minutes of play.

Early in the third, Syracuse forward Jack Finley evened the score at 3-3 on the power play. However, the Senators answered quickly as Cole Reinhardt tallied just under 30 seconds later to retake the lead. The high-scoring affair continued when Lukosevicius completed his hat trick with a one-timer finish from the circle. However, the Crunch brought the score back to within one through Gabriel Dumont before Scott Sabourin secured the Senators’ win with an empty net goal.
