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.

America's Pizza Crisis

To me, pizza is the perfect food.

It contains all your major food groups: dairy, vegetables, bread and meat. It needs no alterations, no improvements, no changes. It is perfect in its pristine, glorious incarnation—unless you are in Chicago. I don’t know what the hell that thing is.

But like any good meal, the key to stellar pizza is the recipe and the quality of the ...

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

A Snowflake for All Seasons

My name is Bruce and I’m a snowflake.

It’s quite the burden to bear.

I trace it to my childhood.

I don’t know what my parents were thinking.

They had a crazy notion to bring me up to not reflexively dislike other people.

So, I don’t know any better.

I don’t begrudge anybody what they have or what they don’t have.

That’s not true.

I ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

Monty, the Magnificent

Not to brag, but our dog Monty is pedigree royalty. Yes, he’s like the Prince of Pooches, the Duke of Doggies, the King of Canines… well, you get the idea.

Monty comes from a long line of Retriever blueblood. His mother, father, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers are all champion show dogs with enough medals and ribbons to make Lassie woof with envy. While his lineage is ...
