New York Islanders - Fifth Annual Lighthouse International Tournament
New York Islanders - Lighthouse Tournament, Day 2

Day 2 of the Lighthouse International Youth Hockey tournament was rough for some of the local teams, as both teams from Finland and Japan brought big offensive games.

After the action on the ice, the teams from Finland and Japan took a tour of CitiField, home of the New York Mets.

Game 1: Finland II: 10 – Nassau Lions: 1
Finland followed up a dominant first game against Suffolk with a 10-1 win over the Nassau Lions. In a Finnish Flash, the European squad was up 4-0 and top forward Jere Toronen scored a hat trick and added three assists for six points. Toronen now has 14 points (9g/5a) in two games. Santeri Tahuanainen scored four points (2g/2a) giving him 10 points (4g/6a) in the tournament. Michael Saleme broke the shutout with a goal for the Lions.

Game 2: Japan: 18 – Westchester: 0
Japan’s offense was on display again, but this time, they secured the win with stingy defense as well. After letting Finland score seven goals Wednesday, the Japanese team recorded the first shutout of the tournament. Up front, Nakamichi lit the lamp with six goals, adding one assist, and Yasuno hit double-digits, scoring 10 points (4g/6a).

Game 3: Finland I: 15 – The Rinx: 1
After tying Japan in their tournament opener, Finland I responded by convincingly beating The Rinx. Valtien Koivuna scored two hat tricks and added two assists. Justus Kunnusmaki, who scored the tying goal against Japan, had a five-point game, scoring a hat trick of his own and also adding two assists. Peter Caputo scored the Rinx only goal. 

Game 4: Nassau Lions: 3 – Suffolk: 1
Daniel Gelabert flashed the leather on a late breakaway to preserve the win for the Nassau Lions. Jason Latin of Roslyn scored the game-winner in the second period, with the puck deflecting off of a Suffolk stick and into the net. Gelabert’s save kept the score at 2-1 before an empty-netter sealed the deal in the closest game of day two. Joseph Zirkel and Joseph Dunn rounded out Nassau’s offense while Billy MacQuarrie scored Suffolk’s lone goal. 

Game 5: The Rinx: 4 – Westchester: 1
John Forlenza had a hand in all four Rinx goals, netting a hat trick and adding an assist. Westchester’s Luke Matthison opened the scoring before Rinx answered back with four straight. Peter Caputo scored the Rinx third goal and Marc Rohrbacker had three assists. The Rinx finished the day 1-1 while Westchester dropped to 0-2. Both teams are back in action on Friday.
