The same four teams that played last year met again Sunday at Clarkson University's Cheel Arena to determine Section 10's hockey championships.

Norwood-Norfolk, which lost the Division II title a year ago, avenged that defeat by knocking off St. Lawrence Central 3-2 in the Division II game. It was the first title for the school since 1998.

Massena claimed a third-straight title with a 10-1 rout of Potsdam in the Division I championship.

Both games featured big early leads. Norwood-Norfolk was up 3-0 after one period and Massena led 4-0 after the opening period.

Here are some video highlights from today's contests:
