Rochester Knighthawks goalie Pat OToole and forward John Grant Jr. both reached milestones Saturday afternoon in an 11-9 win over the Boston Blazers. For OToole it was win No. 100 as a Knighthawk and for Grant it was goal 411 to pass Paul Gait for third place on the National Lacrosse Leagues goal-scoring list. With the win, Rochester improves to 4-3 overall, and 3-0 at home, while Boston falls to 3-4 on the season. Grant (3+3), Cory Bomberry (1+5) and Shawn Williams (2+4) all had six points on the night for Rochester, while Craig Point scored four goals in the victory. Rochester netminder Pat O’Toole also made 41 saves in front of 6,066 fans to become the first K-Hawk goal to reach the century mark. O’Toole also moved 100 saves away from passing Dallas Eliuk as the NLL’s all-time saves leader (6,356). “It was nice to get any win,” said O’Toole. “Getting the 100th was good, but it was just nice to get back on track.” The game was played in memory of Knighthawks fan Jack Tuite. The 20 year-old passed away the day after the season opener because of various illnesses. Jacks family took part in a pregame ceremony where the Tuites received an autographed John Grant, Jr. photo and jersey--the player who was Jacks hero. His older brother, Brendan, dropped the ball for the ceremonial opening faceoff. Boston was handed its first loss in four games. Goalie Anthony Cosmo made 42 saves and allowed double-digit goals for the first time in five games. The Blazers were led by three-point efforts from Sean Morris (3+0), Jamie Rooney (2+1), Matt Lyons (2+1), Nick Cotter (1+2) and Dan Dawson (0+3). The Knighthawks were first to attack at 9:36 of the first quarter to take a 1-0 lead. Point scored the goal with assists from Gary Gait and Grant on the power play.
