CHAZY — Katie Matott scored two goals and the Beekmantown girls’ hockey team held off Skaneateles, 3-2, on Friday night.
The game was scoreless until Matott gave the Eagles the lead with a power-play goal, assisted by Lauren O’Connor, at 8:56.
Sophie Kush’s power-play goal for the visitors then tied it with 2:10 remaining in the second stanza.
But Kiley Regan, with Clara Giroux and Brielle Carnright assisting, put Beekmantown ahead to stay 18 seconds into the third. Matott then made it 3-1, from O’Connor, with 1:54 left in regulation.
Skaneateles closed out the scoring on Allison Weiss’ power-play goal with just five ticks left on the clock.
Beekmantown finished with a 30-13 advantage in shots, with Taylor Laurin making 11 saves in the Eagles’ nets and Amanda Lupo 27 stops for Skaneateles.
It was Senior Night for the Eagles, with O’Connor, Regan and Cailee LaPorte being honored.
“It was a big win for us on Senior Night,” Beekmantown coach Ray Guay said. “We came out ready to play and played a strong game against a good team with a good goalie.
“We do need to be a little more disciplined, however, and stay out of the box. But, overall, we played well.”

FORT COVINGTON — Kayden Pickering tied the game with 47 seconds left in regulation and then won it for the Flyers in overtime with a hat-trick goal.
“We controlled the game late, and you have to finish those games,” Salmon River coach Tim Cook said.
Chad George and Tyren Boots scored in the third period to put the Shamrocks ahead 4-2. But Cody Munson tallied for Norwood-Norfolk at 12:55, and then Pickering netted the equalizer.
At 2:53 of the overtime period, Pickering came down 1-on-1 against a defenseman, stayed to the outside and connected on a shot from the left circle.
Pickering earned two assists in the game, and Brandon Cousineau assisted on both the game-tying and game-winning goals. Zeb Brown had a goal and assist in the first period as the Flyers started the game by taking a 2-0 lead.
Brandon Richards made 33 saves to earn the win.
Boots and George both had two goals for Salmon River (5-7-2, 3-4-1). Aidan Comins stopped 31 shots.
“My biggest issue with this game and what happened was that a lot of kids had a good effort tonight,” Cook said. “I don’t think this happens very much, and it just happened. The kids played hard. I thought my forwards really picked up their game.”
