Leading off today:
Michael MacInnis redirected a shot from the point with 2:14 remaining and Ben Hurd scored into an empty net in the closing seconds to lift Pelham to a 4-2 win over Mamaroneck in a clash of the state's top-ranked boys hockey teams Monday.
"I wasn't focused on the sound, but I'm sure it was loud when that puck went in," MacInnis said. "I'm probably going to remember this game for the rest of my life. It was huge."
MacInnis was skating with the team's top line because Stefan Miklakos suffered a wrist injury early in the first period and was unable to return. "I crashed hard and I just happened to get my stick on it," he said of the go-ahead goal.
Mamaroneck is ranked No. 1 in Division I and Pelham is top-rated in Division II according to the New York State Sportswriters Association.
Mamaroneck, saddled with penalties in a scoreless first period, had fought back from two goals down to tie the game in the second period.
"Mamaroneck has always been an amazing program and the fact that my seniors are going to graduate without ever losing to them is a pretty neat thing for them," Pelham coach Ed Witz told The Journal News.
Girls hockey: Five-time defending Section 6 champion Kenmore/Grand Island upset top-seeded Williamsville 4-2 to advance to the sectional final on Wednesday against Frontier/Lancaster/Orchard Park.
Senior Olivia Smith paced the winners with three goals and an assist. Seventh-grader Ellie Simmons stopped 40 of 42 shots, including everything in the third period when Kenmore/Grand Island was outshot 23-1.
Williamsville had gone through the WNY Federation regular season with a 15-0-3 record. Kenmore/Grand Island was 8-10-0 and lost all three contests with Williamsville.
"It was a huge win for us," coach Jeff Orlowski told The Buffalo News. "Nobody expected that one."

Ludden rallied from a 17-4 first-period deficit with the help of Adams-Wood, who finished with 14 points. Ed Walser added 13.
Leading scorer off team: Point guard and leading scorer Luke Hicks is no longer a member of the Shenendehowa boys basketball team, AD Chris Culnan confirmed to Section 2 media.
