NCCS blanks Red Storm; Eagles fall



Dustin Plumadore made 40 saves in net for the Eagles, and Zach Dignum had 18 stops for the Jets, who skated to a 6-2 win at Northeastern Clinton the night before.

“Both teams battled and competed for 45 minutes,” Beekmantown coach Justin Frechette said. “There are no excuses for our program why we didn’t win the game. Shaker-Colonie capitalized on one more scoring opportunity than we did.

“It’s a shame one team had to lose. But I think this game made us a better team. Shaker-Colonie is a top-ranked Division I team in Section II. It was a great high school hockey game.”

The Eagles (11-3) are in Lake Placid on Tuesday in CVAC play.

Plattsburgh 5, South Glens Falls 0

SOUTH GLENS FALLS — Jack Tolosky and Alex Maston combined for seven points as the Hornets skated to a nonleague win over South Glens Falls-Hudson Falls.

Plattsburgh (10-5, 5-1) bounced back from a tough 3-2 overtime loss at Bethlehem the night before.

“It was a quick turnaround from our game last night and we started slowly today,” Plattsburgh coach Jamie Reidy said. “But we started moving our feet more in the second period and got our cycle going.”

Tolosky gave the Hornets the lead at 6:34 of the first, with the assists going to Maston and Michael Stetz.

Then, late in the second, Andrew Bechard tallied from Maston at 12:47 and then Maston on a breakaway from Tolosky and Stetz at 14:56 to make it 3-0.

In the third, it was Devin Clarke from Noah Gagnier and Tolosky at 5:39 and Tolosky, off an Andrew Bechard assist, at 9:33.
