When Cold Spring Harbor plays Manhasset it is always a game to watch. On Wednesday, April 4, Cold Spring Harbor (4-2) visited Manhasset (3-1) and Manhasset came away with a respectable victory.
As the sun waned the lights on the field became bright and one of the most unusual things happened. Evan Molloy exited the goal, running purposefully when he crossed midfield. Molloy ran up to about the 40-yard line of the opposing defense and fired a shot on target. The goal was at the 10:11 mark of the game. What a great way to start off the scoring for Manhasset.
Molloy also made nine great saves that night and as he was making the saves, Bobby Duvnjak and the defense were making key stops.
Coach Cherry asked for a lot from Duvnjak—to contain Cold Spring Harbor’s Sean Doyle who came into the game with 15 goals. Not a problem for Duvnjak who did not allow Doyle to do anything, completely shutting him down.
As Duvnjak and Molloy played defense, Quinn Moroney played solid offense. As the offense started rolling Moroney was distributing and scoring. He led the attack with 3 goals and 2 assists. The offense was scoring easily as Ryan Matthews, Patrick Fahey, Tommy Wenk, and Bobby Young checked in with one goal each.
Manhasset won 8-5 with stellar defense, a great offensive attack, and good goal keeping.

The Indians' regular season came to a close recently, but not before the boys locked up several more post-season honors to complete a highly successful campaign that brought an undefeated season as well as Division and Conference Championships.
