BEEKMANTOWN RALLIES TWICE TO BEAT ALBANY, WIN VII TITLE

After the two teams tied both regular season games, Beekmantown and Albany Academy played to a 3-3 tie into the fourth overtime period, before a desperation shot by Kirsten Villemaire found its way through a maze of players and into the net for a 4-3 sudden victory in the Section VII Girls Ice Hockey Championship. Beekmantown struck first at 11:04 for the only goal of the first period when Conner LaPierre tucked home a rebound on an initial shot from Katie Matott. Albany Academy tied the game 1-1 at 12:37 of the second period, when eighth-grader Anika Flik banged in a loose puck at the side of the net for the lone goal in the middle frame. The final seven minutes of of the game turned into a frantic scoring barrage. Albany’s Natalie Tulchinsky blasted a shot from the slot, the puck changed direction and hit the back of the net, giving the Bears a 2-1 edge with 8:30 remaining. Beekmantown took advantage of a power-play opportunity with 3:53 left when Bailey Carter unleashed a one-timer just outside the circle to knot the game at 2-2. Tulchinsky put the Bears back in the lead when she absorbed a pass in front of the net, swept the puck from backhand to forehand to score the go-ahead marker with 2:07 to go. Beekmantown Coach Ray Guay then pulled goalie Taylor Laurin for an extra attacker, but the Eagles caught a break with a penalty against Albany with 48.8 seconds remaining to set up a 6-on-4 advantage. With just 21 seconds left, Katie Matott tallied the equalizer. Late in the first overtime, Villemaire slipped a shot behind Bears’ goalie Rachel Peterson, but as it trickled toward the goal line, it was swooped away by a defenseman in the nick of time. As the teams braced for a fourth overtime, there were players even laying on the ice, hoping to wave off exhaustion. Villemaire put the issue to rest at 3:37 in the period, propelling the Eagles to the Section VII title and a state semifinal berth. Beekmantown outshot Albany 57-47, including 21-18 in the four extra periods.

ALEX BAY WINS SECTION III TITLE 2-0 OVER SKANEATELES

ALEXANDRIA WINS FIRST-EVER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP 3-2


The Thousand Islands-Alexandria Islanders captured their first-ever New York State Girls Ice Hockey Championship with a 3-2 win over Kenmore-Grand Island in the title game on Saturday.  (Team champions photo provided)
 

By Bob LaRue, North Country SportsNet
In their first eight seasons, the Purple Ghosts/Islanders state title hopes had been an apparition. However in 2016, after three Final Fours and one unsuccessful appearance in the upstate championship in 2010, the ghosts of close finishes that haunted them in the past faded away. The Islanders were on an island all their own – as New York State Girls Ice Hockey Champions! The Islanders battled back twice to tie in the title game against Kenmore-Grand Island. The Bulldogs took the first lead with 3:37 remaining in the first period when Taylor Story converted a Lina Mirabella pass and chucked it past Islanders’ goalie Kayla McCabe. Alexandria evened the game at 1-1 just 36 seconds into the second period when Emily Rose slapped home a pass from Keely Rose on a 15-footer. Kenmore regained the lead less than three minutes later when Olivia Smith tucked home a rebound off the initial shot from Abigail Blair. Miranda Kolb tied the game again at 9:07 of the period on a high wraparound backhand that beat Klopp to the glove side. Through two periods, Alexandria had outshot Kenmore 26-5, but had been kept at bay primarily by the sharp glove work of the Bulldog netminder. But at 3:50 of the final period, Kelly Bannister skated in from the left corner and decided instead to go low, and tucked the puck between the pads of Kenmore keeper Cara Klopp for the lone goal of the period, snapping a 2-2 deadlock and providing what proved to be the game winner and girls hockey history for Alexandria Bay and Thousand Islands region. McCabe finished with 11 saves for the Islanders.

ALEX BAY WINS, CANTON FALLS IN CLOSE BATTLE IN STATES

After Kenmore-Grand Island built a 4-0 lead in the first two periods, the Canton Lady Bears rallied for three third-period goals, but were unable to produce the equalizer in a 4-3 final in the New York State Girls Hockey semifinals in Albany. Blake Orosz put Canton on the scoreboard at 3:32 of the third period, while Mary Kait Mace scored twice in just over a three-minute span to draw the Bears within a goal with 4:46 still remaining. Liza Collins provided two assists. Canton keeper Elizabeth Burke made seven saves. Alexandria Bay’s Emily Rose netted two goals and the Ghosts scored three times on power plays in forging a 4-1 win over Beekmantown in the other state semifinal.

Canton wins first ever section x championship 3-2

Massena’s Molly O’Connell (5) battles past two Canton defenders to chip a shot on goal.  However, the close-range shot was blocked by Golden Bears' goalie Elizabeth Burke (30). O’Connell and Brittany Streeter each drove home goals in the third period for the Red Raiders.
 

A three-goal spark at the end of the first period played out to be just enough for the first-ever Section X Girls Ice Hockey Championship for the Canton Golden Bears, and proved to be the undoing for the defending Section X and New York State champion Massena Red Raiders. After weathering Raiders’ barrage without even a countering shot on goal for the first seven minutes of the game, the Bears fashioned three straight goals in the final six minutes of the opening period to suddenly drop Massena into a 3-0 hole. Liza Collins fired a shot from the slot that rebounded to the right where Mimi Husinec flipped a low wrister from a sharp angle an into the net at 9:11. Just over two minutes later with the Bears continuing to attack, Collins fed a pass in front of the net, then slipped across to the opposite side where she took a feed from Liz Christy and one-timed the puck into the net for a 2-0 lead. With just 14 seconds left in the period, Canton eighth-grader Rose Jeneault rushed up ice and fired a shot toward net from outside the left circle. The puck tipped slightly off Collins stick with a perfect redirection to find the hole between the goalie pads of Massena's Krysten Stone (16 saves). After a sometimes-lackluster second period, the defending champion Raiders would not go down without a fight. Massena outshot Canton 9-4 in the third period and got a quick goal at 2:37 to revive hope. From behind the net, KC Herne deflected a centering pass off teammate Molly O’Connell and past goalie Elizabeth Burke (24 saves). Five minutes later, Brittany Streeter prevented a Canton clearing pass at the blue line and blasted a slapshot that found its way through a wild scrum in front of the net and dented the mesh. The Raiders then got a chance for to tie on a power play late in the game, but the Bears tightened defensive ranks close to the net and denied Massena the equalizer. When the final horn sounded, the Canton bench came unglued in celebration. The Golden Bears had captured their first Section X championship, and had done so in the absence of their senior captain and top scorer Blake Orosz. They will regain her services in the New York State Final Four next weekend in Albany.

Potsdam’s Alana McDonald (9) assists teammate Erica Sloan (14) in putting the puck past the Canton goalie to earn the second goal for the Sandstoners to give them a 2-1 lead late in the first period.
 

Canton’s Liza Collins snapped a wrister through a screen and into the mesh at 2:32 of overtime to end an exciting seesaw battle, lifting the Golden Bears to a 5-4 win over Potsdam in the Section X semifinals. The sudden-victory goal propelled Canton into the sectional final against top-seeded and host Massena on Saturday at 12:15 p.m. Collins also assisted on Canton’s first goal when she broke behind the Potsdam defense and planted a shot on goal. Blake Orosz tipped home the rebound just 36 seconds into the contest. Potsdam’s Erica Sloan netted the next two goals, less than two minutes apart, giving the Sandstoners a 2-1 lead entering the first intermission. Collins quickly tied the game at 3:33 of the middle frame, before Husinec restored Canton’s lead at 7:06 mark, with Orosz assisting. Ali McFadden then tied the game with a goal for Potsdam with 1:11 remaining in the period. In the third period, Orosz picked up a turnover, raced alone up ice and buried the puck to put Canton ahead 4-3, but Potsdam countered with 3:49 left in regulation when Alana McDonald intercepted a clearing pass and lit the lamp for a 4-4 tie. Potsdam had just killed off a penalty early in overtime, when Mary Kait Mace fed a pass to Collins who struck the game-winner from the slot. Potsdam goalie Taylor Razis made 33 saves, while Canton’s Elizabeth Burke stopped 14 shots. Potsdam ended its season at 10-8 overall.
