MAHOPAC, N.Y.-Depth is an important part of ice hockey and Mahopac has plenty of it to spare.

The Indians wore down rival Somers/North Salem and its short bench in a 6-2 victory on Sunday, Dec. 17, at Brewster Ice Arena.

“It’s always important to have numerous lines to throw at the opposition,” Mahopac junior Brian O’Shea said. “Having depth to wear down the other team could be a big factor down the line for us.”

Somers/North Salem gained the early lead when Brandon LaSpina weaved through Mahopac’s defense and finished with 7:58 left in the first period.

The Indians took control from that point forward.

Nick Bricker tied the game on a feed from John Dignam a little over four minutes later.

Gianfranco Pulice, who tallied three goals and an assist, gave Mahopac the lead when he fired a shot in the top corner with 9:32 to go in the second period.

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.
