SHEFFIELD -- Harrison Rapant scored a pair of first-period goals as Taconic beat Mount Everett 4-2 at Berkshire School on Wednesday night.

"It was a solid game for the guys who played," said Taconic coach Stephen Terpak.

The Braves scored the game’s first four goals. Brian Bonacquisti assisted on both of Rapant’s goals. The first one came at 3:26 of the first period and the second one came just about five minutes later.

Taconic goalie Brendan Leary had five saves, splitting the time with backup Nolan Plouffe. Plouffe gave up both of Everett’s goals, but made 10 saves.

Eagles goalie Sam Riva had 28 saves against the Braves (4-4).

"He did a good job," Terpak said of Riva. "He stopped every breakaway. He played solid."
