NORTH SALEM, N.Y.-It was a back-and-forth game from start to finish as Somers/North Salem’s hockey team took the ice Dec. 2 for its opening game against the Mount Pleasant Ice Cats.

The Sabers, however, got the last laugh when junior captain Anthony Morea scored the game-winning goal on a feed from fellow junior Brandon LaSpina. The goal, with just 1:32 to play, propelled the squad to a 5-4 win at the Westchester Skating Academy.

LaSpina said the key to pulling out the win was staying out of the penalty box and keeping their composure.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game,” LaSpina said. “Mount Pleasant had double the amount of skaters that we had. To be able to pull out this win brings a lot of confidence throughout the locker room. Everyone stepped up and contributed to the win.”
