Beekmantown's DJ Gonyo (27) celebrates with his team as he scores his first career high school goal. It would be the start of the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference playoffs and we would have a treat as it would be the crosstown rivalry. It would be the #4 Beekmantown Eagles going against the #5 Plattsburgh Hornets with the winner having a matchup against the #1 Saranac Lake/Lake Placid Lakers in Saranac Lake on February 27th. The game would start off good for the Eagles as they would get the opening goal of the game at the 4:14 mark of the first period on the powerplay from Alex Breizna for the 1-0 lead. That is where the game would stay through the rest of the period and throughout the second. In the third period though the Eagles would cement there lead on the DJ Gonyo goal at the 5:15 mark for his first career high school goal to make it 2-0. That would be all that the Eagles would need as they would hold on for the 2-0 win. In the winning effort Riley Hansen would make 24 saves for the shutout as they go to 9-10-2 on the season and now play the Saranac Lake/Lake Placid Lakers in the semi-finals. As for the Hornets, John Dublanyk would make 34 saves although it wouldn't be enough as the season comes to an end at 6-11-4 on the season. Gallery
