Scouting report: “Scott Partington, Nate Walker and Brandon Shirley are playing well up front. Charlie Estill, their captain, runs the team from defense. He’s big and strong. Walker and Shirley returned from injury late in the season. Keane Niday starts in goal. He is a very athletic goalie. Ithaca plays good team defense. They all work hard. They skate three lines and five defensemen, and are very dangerous on the power play.” – Mamaroneck coach Mike Chiapparelli
