BETHLEHEM: Eagles ride roller coaster

It might have been worse had Adam Nye not stepped up. The senior made 20 saves to help Bethlehem fend off Colonie.

Other seniors have been contributing at the offensive end. Matt Johnson raised his team-leading point total to 41 points with several big performances in the past week, including a five-goal effort against Schenectady and a four-goal, four-assist day against Colonie. Carlos Mancilla also had big games in the past week, tallying four goals against Schenectady and Queensbury, and junior Matt DiFrancesco had an eight-point day (four goals, four assists) against Queensbury.

The Eagles are going to need more of those types of performances in the coming weeks. They have cross-divisional games coming up against Saratoga, Shaker, Niskayuna and Guilder-land, as well as a rematch with a Columbia team that beat them 15-14 the first time they played.

"We're disappointed in our 4-3 record, but we haven't been dominated by anyone yet," said Rounds. "If we can correct some of the mistakes that we've made, we can turn this around."

Bethlehem was scheduled to travel to Saratoga Tuesday if weather permitted it. The Eagles are scheduled to host Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Thursday.""
