ROUSES POINT — Northeastern Clinton tied a back-and-forth non-league boy’s hockey game at 6-6 with 3:37 to go, but Norwood-Norfolk quickly retook the lead, eventually winning the game, 8-6.

“The boys did not show up and did not come ready to play,” Cougar coach Scott LaFountain said. “We cannot expect to be competitive in league play if we have showings like this.”

The night started slow, with the first period ending 1-1 off of goals from Owen Ebersol for NCCS and Gavin Phillips for the Flyers.

Then the second period broke the game open, with Ryley Ahsley and Jaden Grant getting on the board for Norwood-Norfolk while Phillips netted his second of the game.

Peyton Palmer and Winnie Simpson each added a tally to keep the Cougars in the game.

Third-period goals from Marcus Bedard and Ebersol gave Northeastern Clinton its first lead since the first period, 5-4, but the Flyers quickly responded, with Phillips scoring two more goals just 1:08 apart.

Ebersol brought the game even at the 13:23 mark of the third, but Phillips capped his night with his fifth goal of the game 11 seconds later.

Chase Sessions scored an empty-net goal with 47 seconds left to put the game out of reach.

“We will definitely have to be much better come Wednesday against Saranac,” LaFountain said.
