“Saranac has had some success this year, especially in close games,” Beekmantown coach Justin Frechette said. “They’ve done a really good job hanging in there and battling. I was pleased (Friday) with how our team came out after an emotional win at Northeastern Clinton.”
Frechette said his squad did a nice job of getting the puck in deep and cycling in the corners.
“I’m proud of how our team worked at all three phases of the game,” Frechette said. “We produced at a high level and neutralized some of their top players. That shows the maturity of our hockey team.”
Brandon Buksa (two goals), Nathan Foster, Ryan Waterbury, Kyle Bisonette, Cole Carter and Austin Bradish also added markers in the nine-goal win.
“(Carnright) not only showcased his goal scoring, but his play-making abilities, too,” Frechette said. I was happy with how our younger kids played in the third period.”
Kyle Erickson tallied the Chiefs lone goal, which was assisted on the play from Jacob Lilledahl and Colin Recore.
Beekmantown travels to Saranac Lake Jan. 16 for a 6:30 p.m. contest.
