It was Avery Gennaro’s stick who broke the ice for the Eagles of Rocky Point in the quarterfinal field hockey playoff opener at home, where they squared off against East Hampton April 17.
Protecting a one goal lead 11 minutes into the 3rd quarter it was Reagan Lane who punched in the insurance goal on a penalty shot to put her team up by two. But the Bonacker’s wouldn’t go quietly when Malina Sarlo rocked the box for East Hampton with 11:02 left in regulation to erase Lane’s insurance goal.
A yellow card against the East Hampton coach 2 minutes later didn’t help East Hampton’s rally and the Eagles held on to win the opening round of the Class B title chase 2-1.
Jenika Cuocco had four saves in net as Lilia Schafer stopped 3 for the Bonacker’s.
