You want ice? We got ice?
The weather is already messing up the schedule, but there is plenty of time for makeups. Three of the evening games at BIA yesterday were postponed, but Somers/North Salem improved to 3-0 with a win over Yorktown. Keep an eye on the Sabers. We have a bunch of teams in Division II that are capable of winning a playoff game or two. That bracket is going to be tough no matter where a team lands, so getting a high seed has to be more of a priority than in past seasons.
It appears both of tonight’s Section 1 games are on. Rye/Town Harrison is taking on Scarsdale at Murray, which promises to be worth the price of admission. I’m out until tomorrow, so please keep the score updates flowing if you go.
RyeTown/Harrison vs. Scarsdale, 7:55 p.m. at Murray
Sleepy Hollow vs. ETB, 8 p.m. at Ice Hutch
Fordham Prep vs. St. Mary’s, 5:30 p.m. at Flushing
Darien, Conn. at RCDS, 3:30 p.m.
Somers/North Salem 8, Yorktown 5
From staff reports
Somers/North Salem is pleased with its point distribution so far in the young season as it knocked off visiting Yorktown in an 8-5 shootout at Brewster Ice Arena Sunday.
“So far we have kind of been sharing the wealth,” coach John Veteri said about the early success. “It’s comforting for me to see the team really jell together. Every time I look at the stat sheet there are different names on it and I like it that way.”
The Sabers (3-0) took full control in the second period. At 13:05 in the period, R.J. LaSpina scored off of a Michael Ferrera assist to give the Sabers a 2-1 edge. But shortly after, Yorktown’s Frank Gavigan answered with a goal to knot it up at 2-2. The Sabers scored three unanswered goals in the final five minutes to close the period and Yorktown never recovered.
Somers/North Salem senior captain Mitch Lanyi made the transition from defense to forward for the game and led the team with two goals and an assist. Teammate LaSpina finished the game with two goals.
“Starting off the season with three wins is solid for us,” Veteri said. “It’s nice to see everyone contributing. With this type of success there are more good things to come.”
Gavigan had three goals for the Huskers. Adam Greene added two goals and an assist.
