WHITE PLAINS — After giving up six goals in a 7-6 victory over Mahopac the day before, Lake Placid boys’ hockey coach Keith Clark was looking for a better defensive effort Sunday.
He got just that.
The Blue Bombers limited previously-unbeaten White Plains to 14 shots on goal in a 3-1 non-league victory.
“We’re off to a pretty good start to the season,” Clark said. “It was a team effort today. We did a nice job shutting them down in our own zone and limited the number of scoring chances they had.
“White Plains came into the game unbeaten — they had beaten Suffern. So, it was nice to get two road wins over the weekend. We played really well today.”
Eddie Kane gave the Blue Bombers the lead with 3:09 gone in the first period, with Keegan Barney assisting.
Freshman Noah Mohr then made it 2-0 at 2:14 of the second stanza, with Kane and Troy Jacques picking up assists.
Phil Verino pulled White Plains to within a goal late in the contest at 13:23, but Barney added an empty-net marker with 43 seconds left in regulation to seal it for Lake Placid.
Tucker Angelopoulos turned aside 13 shots in net for the Blue Bombers. Chris Stangerone made 25 saves for White Plains, which was doubled up in shots, 28-14.
The Blue Bombers return to the ice Friday in Glens Falls.
