After a 2-1 victory on Friday vs West Islip on Senior Night the T-Birds begin the Second Season. Friday Night had a great playoff feel, and getting the team ready for tonight’s Playoff Matchup with Kings Park/Commack – a repeat of last season’s 1st round match up.
Playoff game one is tonight, Feb 12th at 9:20pm. Tickets are available for purchase at the Rinx starting at 8:45pm. You show School ID and the cost is $5. This is a match up of the #3 Seed KPC v #6 Seed T-Birds. An epic game last season with T-Birds winning in a shootout contest 2-0 after 4 Scoreless periods of hockey. Tonight expect to be more of the same, with both teams rostering the best two goalies in the Suffolk County League. We hope yo see you wearing your RED tonight!
As far as the Senior Night, it took an healthy effort from all to achieve the 2-1 win. Goals by Senior Brent Brdey and Freshman Joe Villani on the powerplays in the 2nd period gave the T-Birds after being down 1-0 after a period of hockey. Alex Clark was excellent in net for the Win and the T-Birds showed the sign of a good team to win when not playing it’s best game.
Thank you to the Mom’s, and dads, for their involvement with the Senior night, and throughout the seasons of High School Hockey. They all went home happy with the win and ceremony.
