The West Genesee Wildcats were undefeated and ranked number one after regular season play this year. After their regular season success, they must now prepare to play in the New York State semi-final game against the number two ranked Suffern Mounties this weekend.
This will be the Wildcats third consecutive appearance in the "frozen four", but their last two had disappointing endings. In 2008 they lost in the state finals and in 2009 they lost in the semis.
Wildcats coach Frank Colabufo said that although the team has not played Suffern yet this season, they are prepared to go up against them and will continue to focus on their regular style of play.
"Once you get to Utica, anyone can win. Everybody's good at Utica," Colabufo said. "We're just going to enjoy our last week together and take our best shot when we get there."
The game starts at 12:30 p.m at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. The winner will play in the finals on Sunday.
