Talented Yorktown senior attack Alexandra Scialdone (L), who is quickly approaching 200 career goals, came bearing arms last Thursday when the Clemson-bound prep bagged a hat trick.

The Mahopac Indians defeated the Brewster Bears in a lopsided 15-5 victory.

In the first half, Brewster scored first at 21:18 with a goal from Makenzie Tucker, but Mahopac answered quickly with a goal from junior Juliana Mangione to tie the game at 1-1. Brewster would then take the lead back at 17:56 from senior Juliet Arroyo to make it 2-1, however, Mahopac responded with six unanswered goals. The Indians scored two quick goals at 16:11 and 16:00 from Mangione and senior Katie Watts, who scored her 1st of 7 of the day. Freshman Ahsley Koch then netted one for the Indians, followed by three straight goals from Watts to make it 7-2 with less than three minutes remaining in the first half. With 1:19, the Bears ended their drought and senior Alescia Nitti added one, but Watts scored again along with Koch before the end of the half and it was 9-3 Mahopac.

The second half was more of the same for Mahopac, as Watts scored the first goal at 15:55 to make it 10-3. At 14:46, Brewster would score with a goal from senior Moe Poley and made it a 10-4 game. For the rest of the half, the Indians continued their scoring with Watts netting her sixth and seventh, along with a goal from Mangione and senior Riley Masset, and two from senior Hannah Harney. The Bears would also add one from Anna Nitti halfway through the half, but Mahopac dominated them and cruised to a 15-5 win.

Hendrick Hudson Sailors (5-4) @ Yorktown Huskers (7-3)

Thursday, April 27 at Yorktown High School

Yorktown M Annie Cunneen (1G) and Hen Hud M Paige Montgomery (5G) get after 50-50 ball in draw box during host Huskers’ 11-9 win over Sailors Thursday.

The Yorktown Huskers defeated the Henrick Hudson Sailors in a close 11-9 victory.

Yorktown started things off early three minutes into the game at 22:45 of the first half, with sophomore Brienna Gaccino scoring her first of five for the game’s opening goal and the 1-0 lead. Hen Hud would strike the next, including two penalty shots from sophomore Paige Montgomery at 15:54 and 13:34 to take the early 2-1 lead. The Huskers would then score three unanswered from Gaccino and senior Gianna Altimari off penalty shots and Clemson-bound senior Alexandra Scialdone. Hen Hud would then respond with a goal from a penalty shot from senior Caroline Clark, before Yorktown would net one with 2:00 remaining in the first half after great ball movement upfield, with Scialdone finishing off the play for her second of the game. At the end of the first half, Yorktown led Hen Hud 5-3.

“Today we talked about how we just wanted to play with heart and hustle. And every second of that game they brought that they played together as a team and really turned things around, which is what we wanted today.” Yorktown Coach Heather Raniolo said.

In the second half, Hen Hud scored first at 23:16 from Montgomery for the hat trick to cut the lead to within one, but Yorktown answered with a goal at 20:39 from Altimari for her second of the game and the 6-4 lead off a penalty shot. At 17:19, the Sailors would cut the lead again to within one after Montgomery scored off a penalty shot for a hat trick. However, the Huskers would respond only 16 seconds after Gaccino shot one past the goalie to make it 7-5.

Pleasantville 8th-grader Faith Brown (L) continued to sweeten the deal in the Panthers’ 17-9 win when she showered the nets with six goals.

The teams would continue to trade goals back and forth for the next several minutes starting at 14:43, with two goals from Hen Hud sophomore Kayla Mccarthy to tie the game 7-7, with the second coming at 10:20. The game wouldn’t be tied for long though as less than a minute later at 9:36, Gaccino would put the Huskers back on top with a goal to take the 8-7 lead. Gaccino would then net another at 8:05, and Yorktown would lead 9-7. The teams would continue to battle it out for the next couple of minutes, but eighth-grader Annie Cuneen of Yorktown scored off a penalty shot at 4:38 to add to the Huskers lead and Scialdone added another at 3:46 to make it 11-7 Yorktown. In the final minutes, Hen Hud would not make it easy on the Huskers and made things interesting as they had two goals with one from McCarthy, and another from Montgomery for her fifth off a penalty shot to cut the Huskers lead down to 11-9. The Sailors also had multiple penalty shots, including one with 1.6 seconds remaining, but junior goalkeeper Maggie Appelle came up big with huge stops to help Yorktown defeat Hendrick Hudson 11-9.

“Maggie has been really great for us this year. She’s been stepping up as a leader on the defensive end. Our defenders have been doing a really great job to also help her out and coming up with those saves help us out a ton so we’re really happy with Maggie this year.” Raniolo said.


Fox Lane freshman Michaela Kaltsas is about to score one of her six goals in Thursday afternoon’s 16-9 road win over the Byram Hills Bobcats.
