It was exciting as it gets for Harvey’s hockey team Saturday when the Cavaliers advanced to the championship game of the Scarsdale Raiders Ice Hockey Tournament with a 2-1 victory over Monroe-Woodbury High School. But the thrill of a last seconds victory faded 24 hours later when Harvey could not keep up with a torrid scoring pace of Scarsdale who won the weekend tournament with a 9-1 victory over the Cavaliers in the championship game at E.J. Murray’s Ice Rink in Yonkers.

Harvey could not stop Scarsdale’s Devon Schell who racked up six goals. James Nicholas added two goals and collected three assists for the Raiders while Matt Blakely had five assists. Harvey avoided a shutout loss when senior forward Robbie Van Raamsdonk scored in the third period.

It was single goals from each of Harvey’s two Rattner brothers of Waccabuc that had helped propel the Cavaliers into the title game. Sophomore forward Theo Rattner got the game winner with 19 seconds left in regulation. His older brother Curtis, a senior, had scored Harvey‘s first goal.

The Raiders had reached the title game with an opening round 5-2 win Saturday against Clarkstown North who went on to lose the consolation game 4-2 Sunday to Monroe-Woodbury.

For Harvey this week, it’s back to the regular season schedule as the Cavaliers gear up for an important game Thursday at home against league rival Rye Country Day. In their first meeting of the season last week, Harvey and RCD battled to a 4-4 tie.
