The Sachems (6-2-2) handled the Red Devils (5-5-1), the lone remaining Freedom Division team in the draw, in convincing fashion. Junior Alec O’Connor’s penalty shot conversion stood as the game-winner. Sophomore Michael Nigro expanded the lead to 3-0 with a pair of goals and senior Colin Van Stry capped the Sachems’ scoring. Senior keeper Robert DiVincenzo earned the shutout.

Belmont 1, Arlington o (OT/SO)

Shut out twice in three days by Arlington last week, the Marauders (7-3-2) worked extra hard to turn the tables and snap the Spy Ponders (6-5-1) five-game winning streak. Scoreless through regulation and a 3v3 five-minute overtime, brothers Ben Fici, a senior captain, and Cam Fici, a sophomore, delivered shootout goals while sophomore Ryan Griffin notched the shutout.

The championship game is set for Saturday at O’Brien Rink (12:30). Belmont – a declared D1 State co-champion last season – defeated, 2-0, and tied, 2-2, Winchester during a five-day stretch in mid-January. The Sachems were the 2019 D1 North Sectional champion and State finalists.
