KATONAH, N.Y. -- The Harvey School boys ice hockey team went 2-1 in the White Plains Thanksgiving Tournament.
Harvey lost on Sunday to White Plains, 9-3. Theo Rattner, Curtis Rattner and Keith Lambert scored for Harvey. Lambert scored six goals in three games.
Harvey beat Stepinac, 5-1 in the first game, and Sleepy Hollow, Irvington and Dobbs Ferry, 10-1, in its second game.
Despite the loss on Sunday, Harvey coach Tim Halewicz believes the team is poised for a strong season.
“Being able to play three games over the weekend really jump started the season,'' Halewicz said. "Our team was very hungry for games after three weeks of practice. Hopefully the team recognized our strengths and weaknesses highlighted over the weekend and we improve throughout the year.”
Halewicz singled out players that made key contributions to the team’s success over the weekend, calling freshman Alex Appel “an instant catalyst to our defensive unit, making big, timely hits and moving the puck well.” He also saluted Keith Lambert, Rob Van Raamsdonk and the Rattner brothers “for having three good games and providing the kind of consistency the team is looking for.”
White Plains went 3-0 in the tournament, while Horace Greeley was 2-1-1. Harvey and Clarkston went 2-1. Monroe-Woodbury was 1-1-1, and Archbishop Stepinac was 1-2 while both Sleepy Hollow/Irvington/Dobbs Ferry and Eastchester/Tuckahoe/Bronxville finished at 0-3.
