Cadets matched

Greece Athena/Odyssey (Section V, 27-0) became the second New York state ice hockey team to complete an untied and unbeaten season when it defeated Mamaroneck, 3-2, in the Division I championship game last weekend at the Utica Memorial Auditorium.

Albany Academy was the first team to run the table in 1991, going 27-0 after a 3-1 Division I title-game win over Oswego. That team was sparked by its DDT line of Craig Darby — who set a Section II record with 99 points (37-62) — Keith Darby and David Tessitore.

J.T. Stenglein scored the game-winner for Greece Athena/Odyssey with 4:12 left after his team had falled behind, 2-0. Mamaroneck (Section I, 26-3-1) had won 24 straight games.

Streaking CBA

The boys’ basketball team from Christian Brothers Academy reached the 20-win (21-4) mark for the sixth straight season, advanced to its seventh consecutive Section II large-school championship game and gave the Big 10 its ninth straight title-game victory by topping Albany Academy.

Coach Dave Doemel’s Brothers lost to CBA of Syracuse in a Class AA regional final Saturday, 50-45, ending a streak of three straight wins for Section II in that state quarterfinal contest.

What they’re doing

Former Schenectady High School basketball star Andy Robinson had five points and four rebounds for the University of Buffalo in a 65-53 loss to Akron in the Mid-American Conference championship game.

The 6-foot-1 guard became the 15th Buffalo player to reached 1,000 career points, totaling 1,015 in his four years.

Robinson led Schenectady to a pair of Big 10 championships and a 57-12 record in three varsity seasons, and after his last, was named to the Gazette’s All-Area first team.
