John Jay edges
Pelham in
section title


Senior captain Jack Browne scored two of his team-high 18 goals John Jay goalie Nick Petrella
in the rst period of a 3-2 win over Pelham on Tuesday, Jan. 14, at
the Ice Hutch in Mount Vernon. FILE PHOTO/ROB DIANTONIO

It was the seventh straight victory for John Jay, who looks again
like a team beat in Section 1.

Scoring on a power-play goal with 5:17 to go in the opening pe-
riod, Browne and the Indians drew rst blood against the Pelicans
(5-5-2), the team they beat in last year’s section nals. Less than
three minutes later, Browne took advantage of another power play,
putting John Jay up 2-0.

Pelham cut into the lead early in the second, but John Jay an-
swered right back. With 11 minutes to go in the period, freshman
Kyle Petschek scored his 10th goal of the season, putting the Indi-
ans up 3-1.

“He’s Johnny on the spot,” Coach Alex Smith said of the fresh-
man goal scorer. “He’s got a good shot and he’s always in the right
spot. e puck always seems to nd guys who are in the right spot.”

e Pelicans added another goal with a minute to go, but John Jay
held on for the 3-2 win.

“It was good to win down at the Ice Hutch,” Smith said. “I think
that’s the rst time we’ve won down at the Ice Hutch in all the years
we’ve gone to play them. It was a one-goal game. e puck bounces
the wrong way, they could have won.”

It was another strong game for John Jay goalie Nick Petrella, a se-
nior, who stopped 21 of 23 shots. He improved to 9-1-1 with a 1.37
GAA (goals-against average) and a .933 save percentage.

“He’s been really steady,” Smith said. “His positioning has been
very strong. Sometimes that leads you to believe he’s not making
the acrobatic saves. But he’s in good position 97 percent of the time.”

As of ursday, Jan. 16, John Jay had outscored their opponents
this year 62-17 (38-11 during the seven-game winning streak). e
Indians had two weekend games scheduled against Clarkstown ( Jan.
17) and North Rockland ( Jan. 18), after this paper went to press.

Browne has led the way o ensively for John Jay, scoring 18 goals
and 9 assists. His linemate, sophomore Tyler Wishart, has also been
a force to be reckoned with, scoring 15 goals and 8 assists. ough
he doesn’t show up in the box score as often has his linemates, soph-
omore Doug Styles sets the table for Browne and Wishart, Smith

“ at top line is really producing for us,” the coach said.
Anchoring things on the defensive end have been players like cap-
tain Charlie Oestreicher and assistant captains Tyler Petschek and
Jacob Silva.
“One of our strengths is our defensive core,” Smith said. “Guys
who score goals get a lot of attention and they deserve it. But the
defense is really the backbone of your team.”
Despite the strong start, the back-to-back section champions
aren’t allowing themselves to think about the postseason.
“ ere’s so much that can happen between now and the end of
the season,” Smith said. “I don’t think that we’re sneaking up on
anybody like we did last year. We just want to be ready for the next
game. You can’t really look too far down the road.”
John Jay will come up against some sti competition in their ef-
fort to win a third-straight section title. Smith said the goal is to
take it one game at a time and secure home-ice advantage in the
playo s.
“We need to continue to play our structure and we need to play
our system,” he said “Even though we’re 10-1-1, we don’t have a lot
of margin for error. If we don’t play the way we’re supposed to play,
anyone can knock us o .”
