BURNT HILLS: Spartans unseat Spartans

BH/SG made the game interesting by tallying two goals two minutes apart. Ron Beardsley scored with a shot from the blue line off a face-off win, and Nichols picked up his second goal off a Beardsley assist to cut Queensbury's lead to 4-3 with 8:43 left.

BH/SG nearly got the tying goal in the late stages of the third, but couldn't finish on several chances. Lipinski then added an empty net goal with 28 seconds left to seal Queensbury's win.

"We had some great chances on breakaways " (Bobby) Choquette went in alone, (Chad) Overbaugh and Tommy Barnes " but we weren't able to convert those chances," Peretti said. "Even at 4-1, we were creating chances all over the ice, but we weren't converting."

BH/SG will have 19 players returning next season and should make another title run.

"We have a young team, and I was proud that they never sniped on the bench. They remained positive, and they wanted to win," Peretti said. "They held themselves together well, and I'm really impressed with their maturity and the way they supported each other.""
