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.”

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 ...

If You See Something, Say Something

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
