YORKTOWN – Yorktown’s week was highlighted by an 8-2 senior-night win against Lakeland/Panas on Jan. 29 at the Brewster Ice Arena.

“We played a good team game tonight,” Yorktown’s Liam Donnelly said. “The puck was moving all night and we played a fundamentally sound game.”

The Huskers were led by a hat trick from Donnelly, who also added two assists.

“My teammates gave me great opportunities and I finished,” Donnelly said. “I’m very thankful to be playing with this group.”

The night was a milestone one for the senior as Donnelly recorded his 100th career assist.

“I didn’t know until after the game I had 100 assists so that was a nice surprise,” Donnelly said. “Being that it’s on senior night makes it special to me because I know I don’t have a lot of time left on the ice.”

Shaun Benson (1G, 3A), Christopher Zumpano (1G), Jean-Marc Groux (1G), Justin Groux (1G), Christian Grossi (1G), Jason Meyerski (1A), Connor Sullivan (1A) and Madison Drezek (15 saves) all contributed to the victory for Yorktown.

Anthony Cappello (1G), Tim Rucci (1G), Dylan Palazzetti (1A), Kyle Carroll (1A) and Matt Piciocchi (26 saves) led the way for the Rebels (0-16) against the Huskers.

Yorktown lost to John Jay-Cross River 5-1 on Jan. 27 at the BIA.

The Huskers got on the board with a goal by Anuj Gupta with assists from Cian Keohane and Meyerski that put the Huskers up 1-0 in the first period.

“We transitioned out of the defensive zone very quickly catching their defender off guard, which gave me and Cian Keohane a 2-on-1 in which he sent a perfect pass that I just tapped in,” Gupta said. “This goal felt very big to us, because we knew that we had to come out flying and score quickly to set the tempo of the game.”

John Jay answered with five unanswered goals to win the game.

“We had eight skaters tonight due to injuries, so that played a big role in us becoming tired and giving up goals,” Gupta said.

Dylan Tolbert made 22 saves for the Huskers against the Indians.

Yorktown (9-9-1) finished the week with a 3-0 victory against Fox Lane at the BIA on Jan. 30.

Donnelly (1G, 1A), Benson (1G), Gupta (1G), Jean-Marc Groux (1A) and Grossi (20 saves) help the Huskers derail the Foxes.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

Real life is not the movies.

Things are not wrapped up in a neat bow, motivations are not explained, and things often don’t make sense.

Two weeks ago, a man driving “triple digits” in a Dodge Charger exited the Taconic State Parkway at Underhill Avenue, blew through a stop sign, and t-boned an SUV, injuring a mother and her 19-year-old daughter. Here is ...

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.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
