Suffern was clinging to a one-goal lead after two periods against Potsdam at Massena Arena Friday night, but the impressive Mounties owned the third.
Kevin Hill shorthanded from Michael Redgate. Redgate on a power play. Tom Brennan on a power play.
The Mounties scored all the goals in the period and beat Potsdam 6-2 in the Massena Invitational, bringing their winning streak to seven games and moving to 8-1.
“We’re starting to improve,” coach Rob Schelling said. “We’re trying to get better every game. We’re starting to play more consistent hockey.”
Hill ended up with two goals and two assists. Brennan also scored twice. Redgate finished with a goal and two assists.
It was 2-0 Suffern after one period and Nick Modica had a lot to do with Potsdam’s “0,” making a few nifty stops.
“He was awesome,” Schelling said of his senior goalie, who came up with 22 saves overall.
The advantage was just 3-2 after two. Brennan had made it 3-1 on a power play, but Potsdam scored with 25 seconds to go in the period. Then Hill sent Suffern in the right direction again with 13:49 left.
“It was a great feed from Michael Redgate to Hill, and Hill buried it,” Schelling said.
Next up for the Mounties is a rematch against Massena Saturday at 2. They took the first game 5-1 in the West Genesee tournament last month.
“It’ll be a tough game,” Schelling said. “When we played them the last time, the game was a lot closer than the score.”
Best of the rest:
Chris Hagen contributed three goals and one assist and Tripp Corcoran made 29 saves to lead Eastchester/Tuckahoe/Bronxville past New Rochelle 5-3 at the Ice Hutch. Kenny McLean scored two goals for the Huguenots.
