BREWSTER, N.Y. – Yorktown had one more regular season game to play on Feb. 13 at the Brewster Ice Arena, when it hosted Pawling.

The Huskers were looking to build momentum toward the Division 2 playoffs and it did just that with a 9-1 victory against the Tigers.

“This game is huge — especially since we had everyone back and healthy,’ Yorktown’s Shaun Benson said. “The game started to get a little ugly at the end, but we got out of it with no injuries which is and was the key.”

Benson (1G, 2A), tallied his 100th career-point on a goal in the first period, off an assist from Justin Groux (2A), that made it 3-0.

“It means a lot to achieve this milestone,” Benson said. “Ever since I was a freshman, older teammates were always getting their own 100 plus points and I set that goal freshman year to achieve that goal and join the list.”

Propelling the Huskers to the victory was a hat trick by Anuj Gupta and four assists from Cian Keohane. 

“Cian was able to get his four assists because everyone he made a pass to was open and Anuj and Cian work very well together and Anuj is always in the right at the time and finishes when he has the puck,” Benson said.

Gupta credited Keohane and Connor Sullivan (1G), his linemates, for his success.

“They both made great passes tonight,” Gupta said.

Gupta’s teammates Liam Donnelly (2G, 1A), Josh Hilfman (1G, 2A), Jason Meyerski (1G, 1A), and Jean-Marc Groux (1A) all made their way into the box score.

“We had two weeks off from games prior to this game, so we were ready to play and we came out flying,” Gupta said.

In goal, Dylan Tolbert made 30 saves for Yorktown (10-9-1).

“Dylan has been playing great this whole season, and he continued to play good tonight,” Gupta said.

Lakeland/Panas (0-20) ended its season at the BIA on Feb. 13 against Horace Greeley, losing a hard-fought contest, 4-3.

Matt Zivan (2A), Kyle Carroll (1G), Matt Sillcocks (1G), Timmy Rucci (1G), Anthony Cappello (1A), Josh Sandground (1A) and Jimmy Rathschmidt (30 saves) all came up big for the Rebels.

“It’s the best we played all year,” Lakeland/Panas coach Bart Mucci said. “It was senior night and all the kids stepped.”

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
