BREWSTER, N.Y.— Lakeland/Panas’ ice hockey squad gave a great effort against a tough Mahopac squad on Jan. 22 at the Brewster Ice Arena before falling to the Indians 6-3.

Mahopac led at the end of the first period 3-0 but the Rebels fought back after that and played the Indians to a 3-3 tie over the next two periods.

“It was a good game against a strong team,” Lakeland/Panas coach Bart Mucci said.

Christian Jimenez (2G, 1A), Paige Sullivan (1G) and Matt Piciocchi (22 saves) paced the Rebels.

Lakeland/Panas (6-7-1) fell 12-1 at New Rochelle at the Hutchinson Ice Arena on Jan. 16. The Rebels trailed 3-1 at the end of the first period before the host broke the game open with five second-period goals.

Anthony Cappello (1G), Kyle Carroll (1A), Piciocchi (28 saves in two periods) and John Corso (13 saves in third period) led the Rebels.

Brewster/Yorktown beat Horace Greeley 9-2 on Jan. 17, paced by senior Sepp Boeschl (3G, 1A), after it had tied Somers/North Salem 3-3 two days earlier.

“After the draw on Sunday night we needed a big game. We had to focus before the game and make things happen,” said Boeschl, whose squad led 3-1 at the end of the first period and 6-1 after two periods.

Colin Dineen (1G, 3A), Anuj Gupta (2G, 1A), Michael Isola (1G, 2A), Connor Henderson (2G), Connor Sullivan (1A), Kevin Moroney (1A) and Rory McLaughlin (1A) joined Boeschl in an excellent offensive effort.

“As a team we all knew we had to win after the draw and everyone was working well with puck movement and connecting well on the passes causing the goals,” Boeschl said. “We all knew what had to be done and we got it done.”

Backing up an explosive offensive performance against Greeley was Dylan Tolbert, who made 33 saves.

“Dylan Tolbert played very well,” Boeschl said. “Greeley had a lot of scoring chances but with him in net and focused, he made a lot of good saves and kept us in the lead.”

Brewster/Yorktown won an exhilarating 3-2 contest against Rye Town/Harrison on Jan. 20 with Gupta scoring the game-winning goal with 31 seconds left in overtime.

“We were short-handed on the penalty kill and their defenseman tried to get past me but I poked it by him, came down on a breakaway, went to my backhand and tucked it in,” Gupta said. “Scoring a big goal like that against a big team feels fantastic and it’s always a great feeling to help your team come out with a win after a tough battle.”

Isola (1G), Justin Groux (1G), Boeschl (1A), Moroney (1A) and Tolbert (29 saves) also contributed to the win against Rye Town/Harrison.

Brewster/Yorktown (8-2-2) blanked host Monroe-Woodbury 5-0 on Jan. 21 with Gupta (2G), Groux (3A), Moroney (1G, 1A), Henderson (1G, 1A), Sullivan (1G, 1A) and Tolbert (19 saves) doing the honors.

Moroney, Gupta and Groux all scored in Brewster/Yorktown’s 5-3 loss against Carmel on Jan. 22.
