Sophomore Trey Swingruber scored a pair of goals, and junior goalie Austin Clark made 42 saves to lift Burnt Hills/Ballston Spa to a 6-3 victory over Niskayuna/
Schenectady in a Capital District High School Hockey League game Saturday night at the Schen-ectady County Recreational Facility.
Burnt Hills/Ballston Spa was outshot, 35-19, in the first two periods, but scored two goals in the third period to thwart the Mohawks.
Sophomore forward Ian Speck scored just 14 seconds after the first puck dropped to give Burnt Hills a 1-0 lead, but Niskayuna/Schenectady knotted the score just before the period ended when Jake Miller tallied on a five-on-three power play.
Swingruber’s first goal came on a two-on-one rush, and his wrister put Burnt Hills on top,
2-1, but the Mohawks responded 38 seconds later when Joshua Kim connected.
With Mohawks’ leading scorer Lucas Maloney in the penalty box, Burnt Hills went ahead, 3-2, on a goal by Nick Hart. Burnt Hills padded its lead to 4-2 on Nick Van Lieuw’s breakaway goal.
Maloney then scored his seventh goal of the year, a short-handed tally, to pull the Mohawks within a goal at 4-3.
Burnt Hills clinched the game in the final period with goals by Swingruber and Brady Campbell.
Burnt Hills improved to 5-2 in the league and 5-3-1 overall.
The 1-4, 1-7-1 Mohawks got 22 saves from Spencer Moran.
