Hockey And Hoops Success For the Nighthawks



Text Size

Newtown High School's hockey and basketball teams earned victories in January 31 action. The hockey team edged Brookfield-Bethel-Danbury 3-2, and the girls' and boys' cagers both toppled Stratford.

In the hockey team's victory, James Celentano, Tyler DiMartino, and Jack Stanton each had goals. It was DiMartino's first varsity net-finder. Jack O'Connell, Celentano, and Phil Makris recorded assists. Goaltender Markus Paltauf made 35 saves.

On the basketball hardwood, the boys rolled to a 65-41 triumph. The highlight of the night was Tyson Mobley's lob to Jack Petersen for an alley-oop dunk. Mobley had 19 points, Joe McCray 15, Riley Ward a baker's dozen, and Petersen ten.

Big game coming up for the boys as they host Immaculate of Danbury on Tuesday, February 4 at 7 pm. The NHS boys have won seven straight and the Immaculate Mustangs carry an 11-game winning streak into a visit to Joel Barlow of Redding on February 1; game starts at 3 pm.

Check back and see the print edition of The Bee for more coverage of the girls and boys.
