ST. LAWRENCE CENTRAL 5, OT
NORFOLK — Landen Duprey's goal at 3:05 of overtime gave the Chiefs their non-league win.
Duprey finished with two goals, while Adrian Barnes, Ashtyn Catlin, Ethan Barnes and Evan Patrie also scored for Saranac. It was the first-career high school goals for Adrian Barnes and Catlin.
The Chiefs scored twice early on in the third period to take a 5-2 advantage, but St. Lawrence Central rallied for three goals by Ashton Adams, Derrick Lamay and Kade Hayes to force overtime.
Saranac held a 46-29 shot advantage. Shawn McLane (20) and Mason Patnode (4) combined for 24 saves for the Chiefs.
“We really had good energy out of the gate and controlled the pace of play in the first two periods,” Saranac coach Robby Knowles said. “We need to do a better job of playing with the lead. Our poor puck management in the third cost us and allowed them to draw even.
“The thing we ask from our goalies is to give us a chance to win, and I feel that McLane did that tonight. We hung him out to dry a couple times and that is part of the puck management we need to work on.”
