Huskies take down Hornets in OT in boys' hockey

PLATTSBURGH — Following a two-goal effort in the third period to tie the game at five a piece, the Plattsburgh High boys’ hockey team surrendered an overtime marker to Trevor Henderson in a 6-5 loss to Franklin Academy in non-league action Saturday.

Jamie Reidy, whose No. 13-ranked Hornets played with a lot of energy to start the game, said his squad had a mental lapse during a six-minute span in the middle period.

The No. 9 Huskies erased a 2-0 deficit and cashed in on goals from Trevor Cooley, Shawn Mulverhill and Jacob Henning.

“Our blown lead was the result of too many defensive breakdowns,” Reidy said. “We were understaffed with 15 players, but I thought we played pretty well.”

The third period belonged to Plattsburgh High, who received J.D. Side’s first career varsity goal and Devin Clarke’s game-tying marker with 6:03 remaining in regulation.

However, Henderson’s blast with 2:53 gone in the overtime period gave Franklin Academy the victory.

“We were so shorthanded that (goaltender) Robby Knowles agreed to dress as a forward,” Reidy said. “He’s the ultimate team player. No one is ever happy after a loss, but I was pleased with our performance considering the circumstances.

“Their goalie (Joey Brown) was terrific. Coach (Chuck) Dievendorf does things the right way and it’s a credit to his program.”

The Hornets managed to hold the advantage in shots on goal, 38-15.

SCHENECTADY — The Eagles (11-2) ended a three-game stretch on the road in four days with a non-league win.

Kyle Constanty scored two goals for Beekmantown, while Austin Bradish finished with a goal and two assists.

“We played late last night and had to turn around and play early this afternoon,” said Beekmantown coach Justin Frechette. “This has been a tough stretch on the road for us the last four days, but we allowed just three goals in three games.

“I’m proud of the boys for the way they responded today. The players showed great leadership, with grit and tenacity.”

Saranac Tournament

Notre Dame of Batavia 7, Northeastern Clinton 2

PLATTSBURGH — With a 4-3 loss to Churchville Chili occurring just 12 hours beforehand, Rob Francis’ Northeastern Clinton squad ran out of gas in a 7-2 setback to tourney champion Notre Dame of Batavia.

“(Friday) night’s game was tough on us both mentally and physically,” Francis said. “We just couldn’t get anything going and had a lot of mental mistakes.”

The Fighting Irish jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 10:49 of the game with shorthanded goals from Mason Versage and Joe Ryan, but Cougars junior forward Ryan Marks cut the differential to one at 14:48.

A five-goal second period helped Notre Dame of Batavia extend its differential to five goals and solidify the victory.

Reece Tucker finished with one goal and one assist, while Alex Duffy registered a second-period tally for Northeastern Clinton.

Zach Lareau made 37 saves in net for the Chiefs, who were outshot by a 43-22 margin.

“We’re still battling some sickness and we don’t have the depth in back-to-back games,” said Saranac coach Ed Davis. “Churchville Chili is a good team.

“The kids played hard today, especially in the third period. But, we’ve taken a step back the last couple of games and will go back to practice and re-focus on our systems.”

Islanders 3, Saranac Lake 2

OGDENSBURG — A day after losing a tough overtime game to host Ogdensburg Free Academy, the Red Storm lost another tough one.

Zach Walti’s goal with 58 seconds remaining in the third period lifted the Islanders to a win in the Brian Wade Memorial Hockey Tournament.

“It was a tough one to lose today,” said Saranac Lake coach Will Ellsworth. “We had some of our second line players come down with the flu overnight and didn’t even dress today.

“The less experienced players played well and competed. We’re just not getting any breaks right now.”

Sean Shepard and Kyle Delaney also scored goals for the Islanders.

Grant Strack tallied both goals for Saranac Lake, the first assisted by Chris Spicer and the second by Bradley Shumway.

Strack’s second goal came midway through the third period, at 8:28, and tied the contest at 2-all.

Justin Farmer turned aside 26 shots in net for the Red Storm (3-4-4), who were outshot by a 29-22 margin.

Beekmantown 3, Skaneateles 1

SKANEATELES — Amanda Peterson’s goal at 5:06 of the first period put the Eagles ahead to stay.

Katie Matott added a short-handed goal at 1:13 of the second and Kinnan Latremore closed out Beekmantown’s scoring at 10:28 of the second.

Riley Donahue tallied the lone Skaneateles goal, which cut the hosts’ deficit to 2-1 at 8:01 of the second.

Both teams took 18 shots on goal and Kayleigh Bell stopped 17 of those in net for the Eagles.

“This is the first time we’ve been evened up in shots on goal in a long time,” said Beekmantown coach Ray Guay. “They came out competing and we came out a little flat.

“Being on the road for two games in a row, that was expected a little. But my girls could have played better today.”

Beekmantown, the day before, skated to a 7-1 victory at Oswego.

The Eagles’ next game is at 4 p.m. on Tuesday at home against Canton.
