PMHS varsity hockey season ends with defeat in section championship

Pelham Varsity Puck’s graduating seniors.

PMHS varsity hockey, the defending Section 1 champions and #1 seed, fell to the #3 seed Byram Hills 4-3 in the New York State Division II Section 1 championship on Sunday.

Pelham dominated the opening period of the game, scoring a shorthanded goal and keeping pressure on the opposing goalie. Pelham tallied another goal in the second period; however, Byram Hills followed up with three unanswered goals to close the second period. The third period was a thriller, featuring another goal by the Pelham to tie the game 3-3. Despite Pelham’s unwavering efforts, a strong Byram Hills offense was able to get one last goal by Pelham’s goaltender, sealing the game 4-3 in favor of the Bobcats.

Regardless of the loss, the season must be considered a success for the PMHS squad. Pelham finished with an impressive final record of 18-4 and earned a huge win against the defending New York State DII Champions, Skaneateles. Pelham will graduate 10 seniors, but a resilient young squad will look to continue the program’s dominant track record in the 2024-2025 season.
