But if the offense comes around, Trimarchi said his team will be in good shape for a run at the Suburban Council South Division title.
"We feel we're in a good position right now," he said.
Ups and downs
Shaker (2-3-0) has been riding a roller coaster lately. First, the Blue Bison experienced the high of beating formerly undefeated Bethlehem 3-1 last Tuesday. Then, they fell to defending Section II, Class AA champion Guilderland 1-0 last Thursday.
Alex Stopera, Caleb Mellon and Brandon Risler scored for Shaker in its victory over Bethlehem, and goaltender Joe Scarchelli made several key saves down the stretch to preserve the two-goal lead. Scarchelli did another solid job in Thursday's game against Guilderland, but Mike Crupi scored late in the second half to give the Dutchmen (3-1-1) the win.
The Blue Bison looked to rebound from last Thursday's loss when they hosted Columbia Tuesday.
King leads Eagles
One team that is rolling right along is Loudonville Christian, and Dillon King is leading the way.
King recorded two hat tricks to help the Eagles (3-0 league, 5-1 overall) defeat Doane Stuart 3-1 last Thursday and down Heatly 7-1 Monday in a pair of Central Hudson Valley League games.
King increased his season total to 13 goals, tops in Section II. He also contributed a pair of assists in Loudonville Christian's six-goal victory over Heatly Monday.
Eric Hudspath, Ryan Walsh, Sam Freda and Koury Deeb added goals against Heatly, which is still searching for its first CHVL win of the season.
