Brewster/Yorktown clinched sole possession of the League C title by scoring three first-period goals in its 7-1 victory against Pawling at the BIA on Feb. 10.

Brewster/Yorktown controlled the game against the Tigers by keeping the shots on goal from their Putnam County opponents to a minimum as Pawling just had six shots on goal, with Christian Grossi saving five of them.

Dineen (2G, 1A), Henderson (1G, 2A), Moroney (2G), Isola (1G, 1A), Froessel (2A), Thomas Mark (2A), Groux (1G), Boeschl (1A), Gupta (1A) and Garrahan (1A) all produced offensively.

Brewster/Yorktown jumped out to a 2-0 first-period lead against Horace Greeley at the BIA on Feb. 6 and didn’t look back, defeating the Quakers 4-1.

“It’s a big accomplishment to win the league title. It means a lot to me as the goaltender,” said Tolbert, a junior. “The next step is sectionals. We can’t let the title win get to our heads. We have to put our focus towards the section title now.”

Groux, a sophomore left wing, is confident that his squad can have success in the sectionals.

“There was an excited mood after the game knowing that we have a good chance to go far in the playoffs,” Groux said. “This win shows how far our team has come.”

Connor Sullivan scored the first goal before Groux’s tally, with just 3.2 seconds left in the first period.

“We pressured the puck carrier and he gave up a turnover to me all alone in the slot, and I fired it over the goalie’s glove,” Groux said.

Isola and Boeschl also scored.

“We had a lot of confidence coming into this contest because we have won our last four games and we wanted to keep the winning streak going,” Groux said.

On the other end of the ice, Tolbert came up with 29 big saves.

“My team played hard and made sure I could always have a lane to see the puck,” Tolbert said. “They hustled and moved everyone in front so I could track it much easier.”

Brewster/Yorktown (16-2-2, 7-1) also received a road win at Pawling when the Tigers forfeited a make-up contest that was re-scheduled for Feb. 14.

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them.
