In what Mahopac coach Steve Tuite believed was his team’s first-ever win at Palisades, Tyler Perrelle scored twice in a 3-0 shutout.
Perrelle’s first goal came on a penalty shot with 37 seconds left. Mahopac scored twice in the span of 1:07 midway through the second period Ã¢â‚¬â€ Rob Fitchett from Nick Lopilato, and Perrelle again from Chris Mastrocola.
The Rams came alive in the third period, outshooting the Indians 13-6 (it was 20-9 Indians in the first two periods), but couldn’t get the puck past sophomore Bobby Fatone, who made 22 saves to record his first varsity shutout.
I was impressed with the support from Mahopac fans Ã¢â‚¬â€ at least 50 made the trip over for a 4:30 game, doubling the Rams contingent. I was less impressed with the music at the mall. My choice at intermission was to freeze at the rink, or listen to holiday songs in the hallway. I zipped up my jacket.
