It would finally be the return of Boy's High School Hockey as the start of the season was delayed by about three months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The opening night game of the season would see the Beekmantown Eagles playing the Saranac Chiefs at Ameri-Can North Arena. The game would take some feeling out as there would be no scoring through the first period of the game. The lamp would finally get lit for the first time of the season at the 3:11 mark on the Saranac Chiefs goal by Nik Hamel for the 1-0 lead. The Eagles would keep fighting and at the 8:55 mark of the period, they would get the tying goal from Reid Fessette and would end the period tied at one. When the team hit the ice for the third period the tight contest would continue and the Chiefs would regain the 2-1 lead at the 353 marks on Nik Hamel's second goal of the night. Although the lead would be short-lived as Zach Lapier would tie the game back up at two under a minute later on the first high school goal of his career and the game would head to overtime tied at two. In that overtime frame, the Beekmantown Eagles would get their first lead of the game and it was the most important one as it would be a game-winner by DJ Gonyo to give them the 3-2 victory. In the winning effort, Riley Hansen would make 39 saves on the night as the Eagles start the season 1-0 and the Chiefs fall to 0-1 on a 35 save night by Macen Mero. They are back in action Saturday night for the rematch at Amer-Can North at 630. Gallery.

The Northeastern Clinton boys hockey team kicked off its season in winning fashion, taking down Plattsburgh High School 8-0 Wednesday at the Rouses Point Civic Center. The way the game started from the Cougars certainly didn't foreshadow the victory to come, as sophomore forward Ryan Racine has assessed a cross-checking penalty just 47 seconds into the game. Northeastern Clinton killed the penalty, but it set the tone for a period in which they struggled to generate consistent offense. Plattsburgh nearly opened the scoring just before the midpoint of the second period on a 2-on-1 rush, junior Hayden Colburn looked to make the pass to senior Brandt Clarke across the crease. Cougars goaltender Ethan Garrand was able to cover the puck to end the opportunity. The scoreboard did change shortly after the ensuing faceoff, as the Cougars pushed up the ice and forward Sam Bulson found the back of the net with 8:01 remaining in the first period. That lead was doubled in the final minute of the period, as Lucas Bedard stole the puck in the neutral zone and skated in alone on goal. With only a two-minute break between periods, Northeastern Clinton was able to ride the momentum of that late goal into the second period. Reid LaValley scored 49 seconds into the period to bring the score to 3-0. It was far from the last, as the Cougars scored five times in the second. Thomas Richard stopped the clock at the 6:42 mark of the period with a shot from the left hash marks off a feed from below the goal line by Noah Gonyo. The Cougar's next two goals came within a single minute on the game clock, though the gap in real-time was much larger, as Lucas and Marcus Bedard scored on either side of a mid-period intermission for the only ice cut of the game. Lucas Bedard carried the puck into the zone through the right faceoff circle and appeared to be looking to pass it across before surprising Hornets goaltender Ty Calkins with a no-look shot up high. After the break, Marcus Bedard scored on a low shot through traffic from the blue line to reach an emphatic 6-0 margin. Owen Roberts scored in the final minute of the period before Marcus Bedard notched the only tally of the third. The shutout was put to the test late, as a pair of roughing penalties put the home team down 5-on-3 in the dying minutes of the game, but Garrand held his ground. Garrand stopped all 29 shots he faced in the game, with Calkins stopped 30 in the loss for the Hornets. The two Bedard's led with two goals each in the game, while LaValley recorded a goal and two assists, and Winnie Simpson was credited with three assists. Gallery.

Junior Rhett Sarrah beats goaltender Blake Powers for his second goal in the NYSPHSAA boys’ ice hockey regional Saturday at the Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena. The Section VII Champion Saranac Lake/Lake Placid boys’ hockey team’s inaugural season ended Saturday with a 6-4 loss to Queensbury in the NYSPHSAA Regionals at the Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena. SLP, playing without leading goalscorer Dylan Amell for the game, opened the scoring just 3:55 into the game with a goal from junior forward Rhett Darrah, only to see junior Devon Salone equalize for the visitors at the 11:13 mark of the first period. Queensbury nearly gained the lead in the final minute of the opening frame, when senior forward Brendan Duffy danced his way through the SLP defense for a close-range shot, forcing a save from goaltender Anders Stanton. The second period was an active one for goalscorers, with five goals in the period. Less than a minute after the intermission, Darrah netted his second of the game off the rebound to go-ahead 2-1, but that lead lasted a little more than a minute before senior defenseman Josh DeMattos again tied the score for Queensbury. SLP nudged in front again at the 5:15 mark when senior Camden Reilley found twine, and the host team reached the midpoint of the game having never trailed on the scoreboard. Queensbury’s freshman defenseman Jared Chamberlain worked his way into the low slot before beating Stanton at the 9:45 mark of the second period, again tying the game. That was when the momentum shifted. DeMattos got his second tally of the contest off a defensive turnover by SLP, giving Queensbury its first lead of the day. SLP senior Hunter Wilmot had a golden opportunity to answer that in the dying moments of the second period when he got his stick to bouncing puck inches above the goal line in front of an open net with Queensbury goaltender Blake Powers well out of the crease. Disrupted by DeMattos, Wilmot couldn’t find the leverage to direct the puck, and it sailed past the far post. Queensbury extended their lead to three goals in the third, with tallies from Paul Wright and Salone. Sophomore defenseman Carter Sturgeon beat Powers with a wrist shot from just inside the blue line at 13:27, but Queensbury held on for the 6-4 victory to advance to the NYSPHSAA Semifinals at Buffalo’s Harborcenter. Powers made 19 saves in the win, while Stanton stopped 40 shots in net for SLP. Gallery
