After topping Guilford in relatively easy fashion earlier this season, one may have expected the same once again when the two teams met Saturday afternoon in West Haven. The Indians never got that memo.
Playing the Westie Sharks tough throughout, Guilford gave West Haven/Sacred Heart Academy a battle, but it was not enough as the Westie Sharks used Brooke McNabola’s late goal to prevail, 3-1, at the Edward L. Bennett Rink. WH/SHA improved to 13-2 with its fifth straight win.
“Guilford is a good team,” WH/SHA coach Erin Blake said. “We had to dig deep for the win. We came together as a team.”
McNabola scored the eventual winning goal with 1:02 remaining in the third period off an assist from Taylor Nowak, before Nowak iced the contest with one second remaining off an assist from Francesca Criscuolo.
Kyleen Crowe was the star of the contest as she stopped 30 of 31 shots she faced. Nowak scored twice for the second straight contest and inched closer to the 100-point mark, notching her 99th career point with two goals and one assist.
“Kyleen (Crowe) was great,” Blake said. “She stood on her head with some of the saves she made. We are coming to end of the season and we will need to dig deep to get all the big wins we are looking for.”
Nowak gave WH/SHA a 1-0 lead in the first period when she scored off an assist from Megan Froehlich. The goal by Nowak was all the Westie Sharks mustered until the third period as Guilford held a 31-23 shot advantage and scored the equalizer with 3:25 remaining in regulation.
Prior to the victory over Guilford, the West Haven/Sacred Heart Academy train kept rolling along. Behind two goals apiece from Nowak and Mia Celentano, the Westie Sharks won their fourth straight contest and improved to 12-2 with a 5-1 decision over Amity/North Haven/Cheshire last Monday evening at the Edward L. Bennett Rink in West Haven.
Crowe was stellar in goal, stopping 32 shots, including 12 in the first period when the Westie Sharks grabbed a 2-0 lead. Crowe then stopped 10 shots in each of the final two periods to preserve the team’s fourth straight win.
Jenna Hunt and Meghan Dupre also contributed offensively as Hunt had three assists and Dupre added a pair of helpers.
The Westie Sharks grabbed an early lead and never looked back as Nowak opened the scoring 4:20 into the game off assists from Jianna Cohrs and Megan Froehlich. Just 1:15 later, McNabola increased the advantage to 2-1 off an assist from Hunt.
WH/SHA took a 3-1 lead in the middle period when Nowak scored the only goal off an assist from Dupre. When Celentano scored her first goal, off an assist from Hunt, 3:56 into the third, WH/SHA built a 4-0 advantage.
Leading 4-1, the Westie Sharks added a goal in the final 14 seconds when Celentano scored off assists from Dupre and Hunt.

Basketball sweeps week, including win at the buzzer against Hillhouse, Christian Fillion becomes first wrestler to get 100 victories, indoor track places sixth at SCC Championship Meet, hockey splits the week, and swimming fell in their lone meet of the week in a busy late January week of Notre Dame sports.
Wrestling — It’s hard to do something for the first time in school history, especially at a school like Notre Dame, whose rich athletic tradition dates back to the 1950’s. However, Christian Fillion did exactly that as he notched three wins at the Foran duals, which increased his win total to 101 for his career. In addition to being the first four-year wrestler in school history, Fillion etches his name into the wrestling record books becoming the first to reach the 100-win plateau.
As a team, the Green Knights beat Stratford and Oxford while falling to Killingly in three separate dual matches. Earlier in the week, the four Notre Dame wrestling seniors (Fillion, Jeff Bracale, Khorbin Kern, and Ron Quagliani, each won their final home match on Senior Night but the Green Knights eventually lost the SCC Division II match to Amity 38-24 on Jan. 29.
Basketball — Coach Shea’s squad moved to 16-0 with a three-win week, including a buzzer-beating win over Hillhouse on Friday, when Zach Laput found Connor Raines for a layup and 42-40 come-from-behind win. Raines and Laput then combined for 22 first-quarter points in an 85-33 win over East Haven the following afternoon. The week started with a 77-52 win over Shelton where the Green Knights seized control with a 15-0 run in the first quarter, where Notre Dame held Shelton to six points.
Indoor Track — Led by four third-place finishes, the Notre Dame indoor track team placed sixth at the SCC Championship Meet held on Friday at the New Haven Athletic Center. This was an eight-team jump from the Green Knights 14th-place finish last February. Notre Dame scored 36 points during the meet. Hillhouse won the meet with 78 points. Cross and Xavier rounded out the top three teams.
Head Coach Glenn Xavier received third-place finishers from the following: Warren Murphy in the 300-meter dash; Jason Sawicki in the high jump; Johan Klein-Robbenhaar in the shot put; and the 4×400 relay team (Murphy, Daniel Range, Neel Agir, and Christian Panagrossi.
Swimming — Bill Hinckley and Alex Ozonoff won two individual events, however, the swim team fell 95-73 in an SCC Meet with Shelton on Jan. 28 at the Shelton Community Pool. Ozonoff, swimming against his hometown team, won the 200 freestyle in 1:57.77 and the 500 freestyle in 5:14.82. Meanwhile, Hinckley won his two specialties as well touching the wall first in the 50 freestyle (24.39) and 100 freestyle (53.17). The Green Knights, now 2-5 on the season, also won the 100 breaststroke and 400 freestyle relay.
Hockey — The hockey team finally returned to the ice following an 11-day layoff when they hosted Greenwich and Hamden in the span of 48 hours. The result was a split, beating Greenwich, 4-1, while falling to Hamden, 5-2.
Two goals in a 90-second span late in the second period led to an eventual 4-1 non-league win over Greenwich at the Bennett Rink on Thursday.
Charlie Andriole and Jack Luzzi scored to give the Green Knights a 3-1 with 52 seconds left in the second period. Luzzi added an empty netter to finalize the win. Justin Childs and John D’Errico gave Notre Dame a 2-1 lead over Hamden early in the second period but Hamden erupted for four goals over the final 10 minutes to earn a 5-2 win and split the season series between the two teams.

Special to the Voice
A colorful array of people plunged into the icy Long Island Sound on Saturday morning to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program.
About 175 participants of all ages, many of them sporting anything and everything pink, charged in and out of the 35-degree water at Savin Rock Beach during the 19th annual Icy Plunge for the Cure, a benefit for breast cancer.
Among the brave souls were Mayor Nancy R. Rossi’s predecessors from the past two decades, former Mayors Edward M. O’Brien, John M. Picard and H. Richard Borer Jr., who dashed into the frigid surf for the worthy cause.
As pledges continue to roll in, the plunge, presented by the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Committee, has raised more than $800,000 for breast cancer research and education, including $33,000 and counting for this year, buoyed by top individual fundraiser Anthony Cordone’s $7,000 and $2,100 collected by the West Haven High School boys hockey team, the top group fundraiser. The team raised the money in honor of two hockey moms who are breast cancer survivors.
Ruby Melton and Gail McAvay, the top fundraisers for non-plungers, raised $10,000 in honor of breast cancer survivors Susan Rodriguez and Lynne Cohen.
Cordone, a local contractor who is the committee’s newest member, has raised about $200,000 for the cause since the inaugural plunge on Jan. 13, 2001, said city Human Resources Commissioner Beth A. Sabo, a founding committee member.
Joining Sabo on the committee are founders Maureen Blake, Jennifer Cavallaro, Kathy Lucibello, Ronald M. Quagliani, Susan See, Colleen Smullen and Lorie Tamaro.
Proceeds from the plunge have previously gone to the Smilow Breast Center at Yale New Haven Hospital and Looking Forward, an education and wellness program for cancer patients at Smilow.
After the event, as plungers thawed out inside the Savin Rock Conference Center, Rossi and the ex-mayors recognized the platinum anniversary of the Breast Cancer Awareness Program, taking turns showering committee members with words of praise and inspiration.
Rossi thanked and commended “the champions of our breast cancer awareness crusade” and presented the committee with a citation for “serving a cause greater than yourself.”
Reading the citation, she said: “Each of you has worked tirelessly to encourage and support breast cancer awareness and has given hope and help to countless individuals and families who have been affected by breast cancer. Your legacy of excellence and selflessness will live on in West Haven!”
The frosty dip was spearheaded by city and police officials under Borer’s administration to increase breast cancer awareness. Their initial meeting, on Sept. 28, 2000, led to the creation of the Breast Cancer Awareness Committee and a series of fundraisers, including the plunge, in support of breast cancer research and education.
The benefits, which included a duckpin bowling tournament, bake sale, pizza taste-off, walkathon and candlelight vigil, were held in memory of Susan A. Ruickoldt, a third-grade Savin Rock Community School teacher who died of breast cancer in 1997. Her sons, Douglas J. Ruickoldt and Councilman Nicholas W. Ruickoldt, D-2, attended this year’s plunge.
In 2003, the committee established the Susan A. Ruickoldt Scholarship Fund, which awards $2,000 to a female high school senior from West Haven who plans to continue her education.
Today, the scholarship fund and plunge are the committee’s remaining initiatives, Sabo said.
The plunge is a celebration of survivors and a remembrance of loved ones who have died of the disease, she said.
