Beekmantown girls' hockey picks up its eighth win in January

CHAZY — The Beekmantown girls’ hockey team has long forgotten its December woes.

By virtue of defeating St. Lawrence 8-1 at Scotts’ Memorial Rink Monday, the Eagles (13-6) improved to 8-1 in the first month of 2014.

“We rolled four lines all game and had a balanced scoring attack,” Beekmantown coach Ray Guay said. “It was nice to get all our players a significant amount of ice time and get another win as we head toward the postseason.”

The Eagles jumped out to a 4-1 first-period lead with goals from Kallie Villemaire, Lauren O’Connor, Katie Matott and Cailee LaPorte.

The defending state champions added three more goals on the board inside the first three minutes and 24 seconds of the middle stanza. Matott, Clara Giroux and Sydney Adolfo were credited with tallies.

O’Connor concluded the tilt’s scoring summary with her second and final goal at 7:33 of the third period.

Beekmantown managed a 35-11 advantage in shots on goal.

Kayleigh Bell stopped 10-of-11 shots faced between the pipes in the victory. Holley Zeldenrust recorded 27 saves for the Larries in the seven-goal loss.

The Eagles will play host to Skaneateles in their final regular-season game Friday. Senior Night festivities will occur.

St. Lawrence 3, Saranac Lake 1

BRASHER FALLS — Bradley Shumway scored the Red Storm’s (5-7-1) lone goal, but there wasn’t enough offensive output in the team’s two-goal loss.

“This was an up-tempo game with good opportunities from both teams,” Saranac Lake coach Will Ellsworth said. “We had a lackluster start, but despite losing the game, this was one of our best games of the year. All three of our lines contributed to a nice forecheck.”

The Larries, who reached the NYSPHSAA Division II final four a season ago, managed a 35-31 advantage in shots on goal.

Blake Darrah made 32 saves in net for the Red Storm.
