NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — At New Rochelle High School, Scarsdale (6-10) outlasted the Huguenots, 9-8, in a four-overtime marathon.
Nehan Sheth scored the game-winning goal on an extra-man opportunity with 18 seconds left in the fourth overtime period off an assist from Spencer Repp.
Repp — the Raiders' leading scorer — lived up to his title, registering a team-high four goals to pace the offense. The senior middie buried two first-quarter goals to help Scarsdale build an early 2-1 lead. Repp then ripped back-to-back goals in the third quarter to stretch the Raiders' advantage to 7-3 heading into the fourth.
Jake Levine also had a big game for Scarsdale, notching a goal and two assists. He scored just 39 seconds into the fourth quarter to boost the lead to 8-3. Teammates Jake Dorf (1G, 1A), James Felix (1G) and Tim Leone (1G) rounded out the offensive production.
Raiders goalie Connor Wolfe was spectacular with 17 saves, holding New Rochelle scoreless over the final 18 minutes and 49 seconds of action.
New Rochelle (6-10) — which trailed by five goals with 11:21 left in regulation — closed out the fourth quarter on a spirited 5-0 run. Jason Ceneus (2G, 1A) sparked the offensive blitzkrieg at the 8:13 mark and capped it with the game-tying goal at 3:07. Dennis Spencer (2G, 1A), Matt Junious (1G) and Jonathan Stokes (1G) each added a goal during the furious comeback.
Ryan Walker and Isai Morgado rounded the scoring for the Huguenots with one goal apiece. Goalie Mario Diaz made 12 saves. Prior to Scarsdale's game-winning goal, New Rochelle had held the Raiders scoreless for 27 minutes and three seconds.
Scarsdale swept the season series against the Huguenots, winning the first matchup, 6-5, back on April 25.
It marked the regular-season finale for both squads. They will now prepare for the upcoming Section 1 playoffs, which get underway with the opening round on May 18.
