A couple of thoughts about the goings on last night …
Greeley needed to make a statement, and came through with a decisive win. The Quakers have come a long way, taking another step forward each of the last five seasons. Expectations were high with so much talent and experience on hand. Instead of putting together a memorable season, Greeley has been inconsistent. Let’s hope the Quakers are mad now and go on a tear because it will only make the Division II playoffs more intense.
White Plains delivered the kind of game that has to scare all of the Division I contenders. The last thing any of them want to run into during the postseason is a hot goalie with the ability and experience of Chris Stangarone. And the Tigers usually don’t mind playing inspired defense. Their biggest concern is always going to be scoring one at the other end. Anthony DeMaria got that one to go in last night against Mamaroneck and it stood up.
I’m off today, but will keep an eye on the scores and pass them along. Send along updates if you’re out watching or tweet at me @LohudHockey.
