MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Mamaroneck has had Mahopac’s number over the years, most recently eliminating the Indians in the Class A semifinals last season.
Mahopac fought valiantly, but suffered another defeat to the Tigers, 11-9, on Wednesday, April 5.
“I thought we played well,” Mahopac co-coach Sean Mohammed said. “We clearly have some personnel issues we are working out. There is a wide range when it comes to the level of experience on our team. Some of the boys are responding well while others still need some reps in practice.”
The Indians trailed 8-5 at halftime and cut the deficit to 9-8 after three quarters, but only scored one goal in the decisive fourth quarter.
Andrew Evans led the Indians (2-2) with three goals, two assists and won 13 of 21 faceoffs. Ryan Dugan tallied three goals. Kyle Fergie (2G, 2A) and Zach Puckhaber (1G, 1A) also contributed.
Mahopac cruised past host Kennedy Catholic 22-4 on April 3. Evans sparked the effort with six goals, an assist and he dominated the faceoff X by winning 28 out of 29 draws. Fergie also had a big game with five goals and two assists. Tommy Elliott added three goals and an assist.
The Indians travelled to Suffern for an 11 a.m. game on April 13 and host Yorktown at 4:30 p.m. on April 18.
“We would like to start seeing more of the chemistry we see in practice to translate on to the game field,” Mohammed said. “Moving forward we will be looking to improve on opponent recognition and the development of our younger players.”
