“We were able to get the jump on them by coming out ready to play and take them by surprise, along with puck movement and teamwork,” Brewster/Yorktown senior right winger Sepp Boeschl said.

Entering the third period up 3-0, Brewster/Yorktown didn’t rest on its laurels, outscoring the visitors 4-0 in the final stanza to seal the victory.

“The scoring in the third period and ending the game is all from practice,” Boeschl said. “We skate hard and build up stamina. A lot of other teams have a lot of players but none with the stamina we have.”

Aiding Brewster/Yorktown’s prolific offense was its tough as nails defense, backboned by Dylan Tolbert’s 17 saves.

“Our defense locked it down, with only 17 shots on our net and we shot 41 times,” Boeschl said. “The defense was good all-around, forwards back-checked hard as well as causing turnovers in the neutral zone.”

Froessel (1G, 2A), Dineen (2G), Boeschl (1G, 1A), Moroney (1G, 1A), Henderson (1G, 1A), Isola (1G), Zumpano (1A), Sullivan (1A) and Mark (1A) all produced offensively for Brewster/Yorktown (10-2-2).

Lakeland/Panas beat Nyack/Tappan Zee 4-1 at the Palisades Center Ice Rink on Jan. 25.

The Rebels secured the win by outscoring their opponent 2-0 in the final period.

“We knew once we went into the intermission between the second and the third period with the lead 2-1, the next goal was crucial,” Lakeland/Panas junior goalie Matt Piciocchi said. “We went back out onto the ice going 100 percent and scored a goal. It gave us the momentum for the remainder of third period.”

Matt Sillcocks (1G, 1A), Kyle Carroll (1G), Christian Jimenez (1G), P.J. Kowal (1G), Anthony Cappello (1A) and Paige Sullivan (1A) paced a well-balanced Rebel offense.

“With a high-powered offense my job as a goalie gets a little easier because I have room for error,” Piciocchi said. “It also makes my job difficult because with only 17 shots on net I had to stay focused every time they started their attack to prevent bad goals from going in.”

Piciocchi backed up the Rebels’ offensive attack in goal with 16 saves.

“Everyone on the team had key defensive plays,” Piciocchi said. “They were all willing to block shots and use their body to push the other team off the puck. They know if they force the shot to the outside, I’ll make the save 9 times out of 10.”

Lakeland/Panas fell to Byram Hills 12-4 on Jan. 27, with Sillcocks (1G, 1A), Kowal (1G, 1A), Matt Kness (2A), Paige Sullivan (1G), Cappello (1A), Jason Triglianos (1A) and Piciocchi (15 saves) all getting into the box score.

The Rebels (7-9-1) finished the week with a 7-6 overtime loss at the BIA on Jan. 29 against Mamaroneck B paced by Cappello (4G, 2A), Sillcocks (2G, 1A) and Piciocchi (24 saves).
