Another game was on the verge of getting away until Okie Bernabo went looking to make something happen for Mahopac. He was able to break down the Calhoun defense and set up Tyler Perrelle for a couple of easy goals that locked down a needed win for the Indians.
Getting the ball to move has apparently taken some begging and pleading, and there were opportunities yesterday when the extra pass was made.
“We had a good week in practice,” Mahopac co-coach Mike Haddeland said. “We stressed good possessions, and today was a positive step forward.”
Perrelle finished with six goals. John Brandofino had the other two. Bernabo had three assists.
“We had been leading most of the way,” Haddeland said. “They came out shooting and it was tied, 4-4, heading into the fourth. We just told them, somebody has to step up and make some plays. Okie played an outstanding game and hit Tyler backside for two quick goals.”
Next up is a Tuesday showdown against Yorktown, and be prepared for a time change. They want to play at 7 p.m. instead of 6 p.m. I’ll put up a post when that gets settled.
