Varsity Ice Hockey Defeats Manhasset, Rematch Friday

On Friday, January 15th, the Garden City Varsity Wings Ice Hockey team defeated a tough Manhasset team 3-2 behind the strong goaltending by David Wax. The Wings top line of Spiros Markopoulos, Albert Markopoulos and Pat Donahue scored the game’s first goal in the middle of the first period. After some strong forechecking, Spiros took a pass from his brother Albert and buried a shot from the slot into the top right corner of the net. Manhasset answered back late in the first period to tie the game. Goalie David Wax was outstanding in the first period, and the Wings were lucky to escape the first period with a 1-1 tie.

Manhasset jumped to a 2-1 lead late in the second period, and the Wings went into third period trailing by a goal. Outstanding hustle by Senior Steven Lanciotti tied the game midway in the third period as he crashed the net and was able to get a loose puck by the Manhasset goaltender. The game winner goal, his second game winner of the season, was knocked in by Freshman PJ Volz late in the third period with help from linemates Steven Lanciotti and Bill Barbaro.

Tim Moynihan Defensemen Tim Moynihan, Sam Bartels and Beau Lardner each had great games and logged about 30 minutes of ice time. Forwards Matthew Cotter, Bill Tranfaglia and John Wein also contributed to the win.
