Hornets defeat Guilderland in boys' high school hockey

PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh High hockey coach Jamie Reidy will take a win whenever he can get one, regardless of the circumstance.

Junior center Jack Tolosky fired four goals while adding two assists as the Hornets (6-2) defeated Section II Guilderland/Mohonasen 6-1 at the Ameri-Can North Sports Center Friday night.

After Tolosky netted his fourth marker, Guilderland goaltender Austin McCrum was ejected from the contest for a sequence of skirmishes in front of the net.

With 7:40 remaining on the scoreboard, Dutch Warriors (0-8) head coach Ed Koivula elected to pull his team off the ice and they never returned.

The head referee officially ruled the game as complete and the Hornets exited with the victory.

“We were fortunate to get bodies back that had been injured and got everyone into the lineup (Friday),” Reidy said. “There wasn’t a lot of flow to the game, but we’re just happy we could get out and get ready for our league game against Saranac. They’re a much-improved hockey team, so we expect their best.”

Tolosky registered the first two goals on the night at 6:20 and 7:31 of the first period, respectively.

“(Tolosky) is a good goal scorer and an even better setup guy,” Reidy said. “He’s got a nose for the net and we expect him to create offense for us.”

Then, with just 19 seconds gone in the middle stanza, eighth-grader Andrew Bechard notched his first of the night from Tolosky and Alex Maston.

Sophomore defenseman Alex Stetz extended the differential to 4-0 before Guilderland’s Ryan McCrum helped the Dutch Warriors get on the board.

Giancarlo Ventre was credited with the win between the pipes for Plattsburgh High, fending off five of six shots on goal.
