Pelham ice hockey moves on to sectional championship; girls basketball secures spot in semifinals


The PMHS ice hockey and the girls basketball teams both made progress in the sectional tournaments during the winter break for the schools.

Hockey had a bye in the quarterfinal round after receiving the number one ranking. In the Division II semifinals, the Pelicans beat Rye 3-1 on Thursday, their third win over their rivals this season. Senior Griffin Evans had 2 goals, and junior Owen Duffy added another. Freshman goalie Luke Fear had 21 saves.

“It’s great,” said Pelham Head Coach Mike Cambria. “I mean we had to play these guys 3 times this year. They’re a great team; they are well coached. I knew it would be tough to beat them 3 times in a row, let alone in a playoff game, but our guys rose the occasion like they have all year.”

Pelham will play for the Division II section title against Byram Hills on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Brewster Ice Arena.

The girls basketball team, which went into the playoffs ranked number four in Class AA, defeated out-bracket winner Horace Greeley 50-32 at home on Feb. 16.

With home-court advantage in the quarterfinal, the Pelicans overwhelmed Somers 53-28 on Thursday, sending them to the semifinals at the County Center on Feb. 27. Their opponent is still to be decided.
