Help has arrived.
In Friday's win, the freshly-signed Anthony Battaglia and Matt Puntureri scored their first points for the Outlaws.
Battaglia continued that pace Saturday afternoon, scoring the team's first goal and helping the Outlaws defeat New York, 11-2, at Airmen Pond at Bowman Field.
Battaglia, playing in just his second game with Williamsport, slid a shot past Brent Troyon just 16 seconds into the game.
The Outlaws (14-1-3-11) went on to score the next seven goals before New York finally broke through on a Michael Guerra second period goal.
"It wasn't pretty," Outlaws coach Chris Firriolo said. "This wasn't the type of hockey game that anyone is going to get better from. We pulled back early."
New York (3-1-1-14), which signed most of its new roster just hours before Friday's game, left players open in the slot and struggled to connect more than one or two passes together.
Matt Smyth recorded his second hat trick in as many days with all four of his goals coming from Trevor Karasiewicz's assists.
Smyth entered yesterday with five goals in three appearances against New York. Karasiewicz, who is on pace to break a team and league record in points and assists, tallied a second-period goal after earning two assists in the first period. If his current pace continues, Karasiewicz will finish with 111 points and shatter the record of 100 set by Travis Kauffeldt on last year's Outlaws' team.
"It was what it was today," Firriolo said. "We're going to take the next couple days off and then we have a really tough stretch of games. It's going to be a big test for us."
The Outlaws will play 10 games in 11 days starting with a three-game road trip to close out next week. The stretch also includes the FHL All-Star game at Airmen Pond.
"We have some new guys coming in next week," Firriolo said. "We're going to just try to get back to hockey after this week."
Brett Needham and Jamie Zaleski also scored while the defense limited New York to 21 shots through the first two periods.
"Today was ugly," Firriolo said. "Next week is going to be tough and it's going to be my job to keep the tempo up at practice. I have to make sure the team's mental and physical preparation is there."
