ALEXANDRIA BAY - OFA took the methodical route to down Plattsburgh High School 5-1 in the first round of the Alexandria Bay-Thousand Islands Islanders Holiday Hockey Tournament on Monday.

The Devils played the host Islanders, who outscored St. Lawrence Central 8-4 on Monday, in the second day of the tournament today and will begin 2022 play on Wednesday, Jan. 5 hosting Massena in the Golden Dome.

The Blue Devils outshot PHS 31-8 in second and third period to pull away from a 1-0 first period lead.

Drew Costello, who was honored as an All-Tournament selection at the Salmon River Tournament last week, scored two goals in the second period to spark the pull-away which overcame a 40-save effort by Plattsburgh goaltender Brandon Wilkins.

Ty Jacobs stopped 17 shots making his first start for OFA.

“We had a slow start in the first period and picked it up a notch in the second and third period. We outshot them 14-2 in the second period and 17-6 in the third period,” said OFA Coach Jon Frederick.

“It was a physical, fast game. Ty Jacobs played well in his first varsity start.”

In one other NAC game Monday Tupper Lake outscored the LaSalle Institute 7-4.
