Huskies take down Hornets in OT in boys' hockey

(Continued)

PLATTSBURGH —

The Fighting Irish jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 10:49 of the game with shorthanded goals from Mason Versage and Joe Ryan, but Cougars junior forward Ryan Marks cut the differential to one at 14:48.

A five-goal second period helped Notre Dame of Batavia extend its differential to five goals and solidify the victory.

Reece Tucker finished with one goal and one assist, while Alex Duffy registered a second-period tally for Northeastern Clinton.

David Luciw and Andrew Ludwicki scored two goals each to lead Churchville Chili past the Chiefs.

Collin Wood and Ryan Casgrove also scored for the visitors, who held a 3-0 lead after one period and an 5-1 advantage after two.

Dylan Baker, Jake Lilledahl and Matt McCasland scored goals for Saranac, with Lilledahl and McCasland getting their goals in the final minute of play.

Zach Lareau made 37 saves in net for the Chiefs, who were outshot by a 43-22 margin.

“We’re still battling some sickness and we don’t have the depth in back-to-back games,” said Saranac coach Ed Davis. “Churchville Chili is a good team.

“The kids played hard today, especially in the third period. But, we’ve taken a step back the last couple of games and will go back to practice and re-focus on our systems.”
