SARANAC LAKE —

“It was a well-played game by both teams,” Crown Point coach Randy Pertak said. “Austin Armstrong got a breakaway on a long pass from Alex Shaughnessy from the midfield. Both teams had great chances at scoring game winners and Schroon Lake finally took advantage.”

Justin Lough helped the Wildcats get on the board at 2:14 of the first half with the assist credited to Nate Peace.

Noah Macey, however, tied the game at 1-all with 9:09 remaining in regulation on a feed from Judd DeBrobander.

“Both teams did a good job controlling and passing,” Pertak said.

The two teams combined for 55 shots.

Schroon Lake’s Caleb Maisonville made 17 saves, while Panthers netminder Brendan Crowningshield finished with 14 stops in the match.
