Two Saturday night high school hockey contests are slated for the town’s Ice Skating Center in Bethpage.

The two games are part of the town's "High School Hockey Night in Oyster Bay" series. The games, which offer free admission, are held at the town's rink on Stewart Avenue in Bethpage

Starting off the series will be the Massapequa Chiefs taking on the Syosset Braves on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. The second contest, featuring the Cold Spring Harbor Seahawks and the Bethpage Golden Eagles, is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 1, at 8 p.m.

“These events, which are free to all Town residents, feature high school teams that are among the finest in Nassau County,” Supervisor John Venditto said. “The players really look forward to competing at the Town of Oyster Bay’s state of the art rink and we are always pleased to have them here.”
