SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. >> So of­ten dur­ing the pre-sea­son or rough starts into a cam­paign coaches will say “It’s not how you start, its how you fin­ish.”

Saratoga’s ice hockey team along with Shenen­de­howa put that to the test Wed­nes­day

night as the Plains­men put their best foot for­ward in the first pe­riod, but it was the Blue Streaks who had the skate on the prover­bial throat of its ri­val at the end of three pe­ri­ods, win­ning hand­ily, 6-1.

“I think I think Shen was out­play­ing us in the first pe­riod there and our se­nior goalie re­ally was our leader and it kept us in it, you know, and we needed them,” Saratoga

Springs coach Tim Horst said. “He made some big saves there and kept us in it.

“Then we were able to kind of get a late one there on the power play that kind of changed the tide. But you know, when we needed him Brad Blake was in there and mak­ing big saves for us.”

The se­nior net­min­der came up with 27 saves on the night
