MAHOPAC, N.Y. — Brewster’s Stephen Fischer was a brick wall in net, stopping 39 shots as the Bears handed Mahopac a 4-2 defeat on Dec. 20 at Brewster Ice Arena.
“Tip your cap to their goalie,” Mahopac coach Chris Lombardo said. “He played phenomenal with 39 saves. We just didn’t finish our chances. I thought we outplayed them for a good portion of the game. Just didn’t finish our opportunities.”
The Indians took the early lead when freshman Brian O’Shea found the back of the net with 7:20 left in the first period on a feed from Brendan Groth.
Brewster responded with a goal, but O’Shea had the answer 48 seconds into the second period with the assist going to Chris Bednar to put the Indians up 2-1.
Brewster answered with a goal from Aaron Treiling, who finished with a hat trick, to tie the game up late in the second period. Treiling gave the Bears a 3-2 lead midway through the third and they added an insurance goal with just 10 seconds left.
Peter Siolas made 27 saves for Mahopac, which dropped to 3-3 on the season.
The Indians are off for the holidays and return to the ice on Sunday, Jan. 3 for an 8 p.m. game with Yorktown.
