Quick Dan Kauth Tourney results

The locals fared reasonably well at the conclusion of the2007 Don Kauth Memorial High School Hockey Tournament Saturday afternoon at the Weibel Ave. Rink.

Shenendehowa posted a 2-2 tie against Section III's Liverpool, but Plainsmen coach Juan de la Rocha was visibly disappointed in the tie.

Shenendehowa came up empty during a five-minute power play and then wasted Joe Macaluso's go-ahead backhanded goal with 5:25 left in the third. The Plainsmen then took two consecutive penalties, a tripping and charging infraction. Liverpool's Ryan Duffy scored his second goal of the game with 4:14 left.

Shenendehowa pressured the Warriors goaltender, Matt Miller, throughout the five-minute overtime period, but came up empty.

The pressure didn't sit well with Miller, who came up swinging, literally, in the closing second of the contest after a slew of Plainsmen players crashed the net looking for a rebound tally. His infraction coast him a four-minute major and a game misconduct.

Liverpool was playing without top player, Josh LaRose, who was forced to sit out Saturday's contest for an infraction stemming from Friday's contest versus LaSalle Institute.

Saratoga Springs was powered by sophomore goaltender T.J. Delaney who turned back all 20 shots he faced in goal, earning his first varsity win and shutout with a 3-0 win over Clarkstown North.

Blue Streak coach Tim McGuiggan made several changes to get through to his young squad.

He went casual behind the bench, in jeans and a Blue Streaks baseball cap. He received permission from Clarkstown North to wear its home colors and bench, moving Saratoga into a visitors locker room, skating in their road blue jerseys and went with a different goaltender minutes before the teams came out for warm-ups.

It worked as Saratoga went 2-for-4 on their power play, a far cry from the 0-for-6 outing Friday versus Orchard Park and 1-for-18 season estimate by assistant coach Mike Ricupero.

Senior forward Greg Jacot put back two rebounds for goals, both on the power play as the Blue Streaks appeared headed in the right direction.
