The Garnet Raiders bounced back from an early Ballston Spa goal by applying steady pressure on the Scotties' defense. That pressure paid off in the second half when Tom Isipitan scored off a feed from Tom Plowinske to tie the game at 1. Brad Schlude then put Colonie ahead for good in overtime when he tallied off a Will Plowinske assist.
"The majority of the game, we had the better of the play," said Trimarchi. "They scored on a breakaway (in the first half), and their goaltender did a great job of keeping us off the (score)board."
Colonie earned two standings points for the cross-divisional game to increase its season total to nine and forge a tie for second place with Bethlehem. Unbeaten Guilderland leads the South Division with 12 standings points entering Thursday's game against the Garnet Raiders.
"We're really looking forward to seeing them again," Trimarchi said of Guilderland, which defeated Colonie 3-2 Sept. 8. "We match up really well with them.""
