Round Robin Recap



The SCHSHL took Saugerties by storm on day one of the NYSAHA tournament with three of the four winners on Friday hailing from Suffolk County. 

The East Islip Chiefs and Smithtown Hauppauge Bulls clinched the top two seeds in Division I ahead of Sunday’s semifinals. The St. Anthony’s Friars defeated the hometown Saugerties Mustangs in the first of two games in Division II on Friday. 

The Chenango Forks Blue Devils, who recently completed a three-peat of their own in Broome County, secured the lone victory for upstate New York in a thriller against the Kings Park Commack Knights. One final note, there is an ice cut between the 2nd period and 3rd period for all NYSAHA games here in Saugerties. So without further ado, let’s dive right in! 

Ryan Anatra Nets Natural Hat-Trick To Lift EI to 4-2 Comeback Win Over Arlington 

Dylan Boenig opened the scoring in the first game of this tournament to give the Arlington Admirals a 1-0 lead in the opening frame. Netminder Kevin Ahern Jr was tremendous throughout the game for the Admirals. Goaltender Brody Dickson backstopped EI to victory. 

Bryan Slattery put the East Islip Chiefs on the board to tie the game in the second stanza. The Arlington Admirals jumped back out to a one goal lead courtesy of Jacob Meyers. Ryan Anatra potted his first of the tourney to tie it 2-2 for EI heading into the intermission. 

Ryan Anatra scored twice in the 3rd period to complete the natural hat-trick. Thomas Ivers and Luke LaFata finished the game with two assists apiece.

Bobby Trites Nets 1st Period Hat-Trick In Smithtown Hauppauge’s Statement Win Against Elmira 

The Bulls first line was lights out in game one. Captain Bobby Trites led all skaters with six points. Jackson Cantalupo lit the lamp three times in a five point performance. Michael Arnoni scored once in a five point outing. Max Campo scored twice in what wound up being a very productive day one for the Smithtown Hauppauge winger. Patrick Ryan made 15 saves in the shutout victory. Trevor Reidy made 38 stops in a strong showing for Elmira. 

Ten Smithtown Hauppauge skaters scored in game one with eight of those players tallying two points in the contest. Defenseman C.J. Guglielmo and Ray Sherwood tallied two assists apiece to give the Bulls ten multi-point scorers in the game. Fifteen total players were credited points.

James Schendorf Stars In St. Anthony’s Win Over Saugerties 

James Schendorf potted a hat-trick in a six point performance as defenseman Cormac Terry completed his first career hat-trick in a 14-0 victory over the Saugerties Mustangs. James Aspromonti and Zack Sirel both scored two goals in three point outings for the Friars. Ryan Leon found the back of the net and added two helpers. Louis Cutalo IV picked up three assists. Captain Brady Monteleone added one gino and one apple.

Eight Friars lit the lamp and 14 tallied a point in their lone game of day one. T.J. Ulmscneider made seven saves and Shane Ryan made two stops in a split shutout for the Friars netminders. Jude Signore started in net for Saugerties. The Mustangs goaltender made six saves on thirteen shots against before being relieved in the second stanza by Ryan Haberski, who made fifteen stops on twenty-two shots against. 

Brody Polacek’s 6 Point Performance Powers Chenango Forks Comeback Victory Over KPC

Brody Polacek led the comeback in a six point performance for the Chenago Forks Blue Devils star. Colin O’Flanagan made 17 stops in a winning performance for the Blue Devils. Colin Caputo made 19 stops on 23 shots against for the Knights before being relieved by Jayson Krauthamer who made 7 saves on ten shots against.  

The Kings Park Commack Knights jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening frame as John Coyle, Tyler Granelli and Jesse Lemza scored for KPC. Colin Caputo made 8 saves on as many shots in the opening frame for the Knights. 

The Chenango Forks Blue Devils came roaring back in the second stanza. Simon Kasmarcik scored the first of two goals on the power play to cut the KPC lead to 3-1. Anthony Sergi found the back of the net to make it a one score game. Brody Polacek netted the equalizer on the power play. Blue Devils captain John Maus scored the go-ahead goal to put the Blue Devils up 4-3. Brody Polacek scored the fifth unanswered goal for Chenango Forks to close out the frame. 

Years from now, scholars will debate when Brody Polacek completed the hat-trick. Our very own Travis Quigley told yours truly that the Blue Devils star had completed it while calling the game in the second frame, but I was led astray. It appeared Polacek scored the eventual game winner that was credited to Simon Kasmarcik. Polacek wound up scoring the seventh unanswered goal to complete the hat-trick on the scoresheet. All jokes aside, the scorekeepers did a terrific job this weekend. Jesse Lemza netted his second of the game to cut the Blue Devils lead to 7-4. Ryan Walsh potted a power play goal to make it 7-5. Donovin Perhach sealed the deal with an empty net dagger as the Blue Devils pulled away with an 8-5 win. 

Anthony Marazzito Lights The Lamp Five Times For EI In 10-1 Win Over Elmira 

Anthony Marazzito finished the regular season having scoted fourteen of EI’s one-hundred and thirty-one goals. Yet somehow it always felt like EI’s fourth leading scorer, who finished tied for fourteenth amongst all Varsity skaters, should have had even more gino’s on the campaign. Marazzito showed us exactly why that is against Elmira. The Chiefs winger completed the 1st period hat-trick in a five goal performance for EI. 

The SCHSHL’s leader in assists and points, Thomas Ivers, picked up six helpers in the Chiefs win. Ryan Anatra and Evan LaFata potted two goals apiece in three point performances. Anthony Pepe scored once for EI. Corey McGovern made nine saves on ten shots against. 

Brayden Sincock scored Elmira’s first goal of the tournament. Trevor Reidy picked up another 22 stops in a solid outing for Elmira. 

David Wetzel And The Bulls Roll On 

David Wetzel scored once in a three point performance as the Smithtown Hauppauge Bulls cruised to an 8-0 victory over the Arlington Admirals. Aidan Halliday pitched a thirteen save shutout for the Bulls. Kevin Ahern Jr made 29 stops on 38 shots for the Admirals.   

Max Campo netted two gino’s to extend his multi-goal game streak to two in a three point outing. Campo was one of six Bulls including Jackson Cantalupo, Victor D’Errico, Timmy Sellito and Ray Sherwood to extend their multi-point game streak to two. Jackson Cantalupo, Victor D’Errico, R.J. Pfister, Shane Reidy and Bobby Trites lit the lamp for Smithtown Hauppauge
