Plumadore, Eagles shut out Red Storm in semis

PLATTSBURGH — The Beekmantown boys’ hockey club claimed this year’s Champlain Valley Athletic Conference regular-season title heavily relying on its team speed.

Thursday night, however, the ninth-ranked Eagles (17-3-1) used the element of physicality to their advantage.

Beekmantown defeated Saranac Lake 4-0 in Section VII semifinal action with who Dustin Plumadore getting a record-setting seventh shutout between the pipes.

“I think the nice thing about our team is that we can play any style that we want to play,” Eagles coach Justin Frechette said. “At the end of the day, it comes down to just competing and winning those 50-50 battles, and I think we did that very well (Thursday). I was pleased with the boys winning those one-on-one battles.”

The Eagles advance to the Section VII championship for the second time in three years. They’ll face tonight’s Plattsburgh High-Lake Placid winner next Wednesday at Stafford Ice Arena.

Nathan Foster helped Beekmantown to an early 1-0 lead at 2:25 of the opening period.

After collecting a loose puck in the neutral zone, Foster raced in all alone, beating Red Storm (7-9-4) goaltender Blake Darrah with a finesse move in front.

The Eagles concluded the first stanza leading 1-0 on the scoreboard and 18-3 in shots on goal.

After an expired penalty, Kyle Bisonette extended the differential to two when Brenden Carnright hit the junior forward with a one-time feed in the low slot at 4:28 of the middle period.

Then, with just one minute and 50 seconds elapsed since Bisonette’s goal, Brandon Buksa scored on an eerily similar play just outside the paint. Cole Carter was credited with the assist.

“Coach (Frechette) gave me the signal to try and get the puck on net,” Buksa said. “I just happened to be in the slot with my stick down. The puck came out, and I put it five-hole. It gave us some momentum.”
