Mahopac led by only 4-2 at intermission before two quick scores by Brandofino and one by Perrelle early in the third period increased the lIndians’ lead to 7-2.
“Johnny (McGuigan) played extremely well for us, especially in that second quarter (five saves) ,” said Mahopac co-coach Mike Haddeland. “He started for us as a sophomore and we’re looking for even bigger things from him this season.
Jacob. Armstrong had 10 ground balls for Mahopac and Chase Thompson and Okie Bernabo each contributed two assists.
First-half goals by Dennis Unrien and Connor Brown helped keep Fordham Prep close.
“We had some great opportunities in that second quarter,” said Fordham coach Len DeLucia. “We just couldn’t capitalize. Mahopac’s goalie played well.
