Mamaroneck knocks off Little Red boys in hockey



The Ithaca High boys hockey team lost its sixth straight game on Saturday, as Trey Herlitz-Ferguson scored four goals to propel Mamaroneck to a 5-2 victory.

Junior forwards Sunghyun Won and Chandler Pfaff had the goals for Ithaca (9-9-0), while starting goalie Brandon Kasel made 24 saves in two periods of action.

He was replaced in the third by Dylan Riker after being injured at the end of the second period on a collision in the crease.

“I think we were kind of deflated after Brandon got hurt,” Ithaca coach Paul Zarach said.

“He was making the first, second and third saves and really keeping us in the game. But Dylan did a good job of stepping in in a tough situation.”

Michael Abdulky had two assists and Scott Partington had one for Ithaca, which has two more regular-season games before state regionals begin on March 2.

Mamaroneck is ranked No. 14 in Division I in the latest NYSSWA poll.
