Gordon Conference

Delbarton 3, No. 1 CBA 2

The Colts (6-1-1) twice fought back to tie the score but Delbarton's Trip Pendy scored on a 5-on-3 at 13:12 of the third period to take the lead for good and hand the No. 1 team in New Jersey its first loss of the season.

A goal by Nick Faccone staked Delbarton (2-0) to a 1-0 lead after the first intermission before CBA tied the score in the final minute of the second period on a goal by sophomore defenseman Patrick Reilly.

Delbarton took a 2-1 lead at 4:06 of the third period on a power-play goal by Kayetan Berezniak and CBA netted the equalizer at 11:54 of the third when sophomore Leighton Biesiadecki scored off a setup from Robert Setteducati.

North Division

No. 10 Catholic (St. Rose/RBC/Donovan) 4, No. 3 Middletown South 1

Sophomore defenseman Ryan Butchko notched two goals and one assist and freshman goalie John Inderwies made 32 saves as the Frozen Roses (1-1, 1-1) upset the Eagles (3-1, 1-1).

The Catholic tri-op was playing in just its second game of the season because of a prior pause due to COVID-19 exposure while Middletown South had just resumed its season on Friday and was coming off a 3-2 victory over No. 2 St. John Vianney. St. Rose jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second period, starting with a power-play goal by Butchko at 3;26. Aidan Grant made it 2-0 at 4:37 and Ben Meyer extended the lead to 3-0 at 10:53.

Junior forward Nate Block got Middletown South on the board at 11:58 of the second period but that was as close as the Eagles would get. Butchko added a short-handed goal off an assist from William Hambsch at 11:48 of the third period to seal the victory.

Grant finished with a goal and an assist and freshman Connor Harms chipped in with two assists.

Jack Collings made 18 saves for Middletown South.

 

No. 4 Rumson-Fair Haven 3, Westfield 2

Senior forward Michael Kuras scored with 5:42 left in regulation off assists from Connor Spagnuola and Andrew Croddick to snap a two-all tie and send the Bulldogs (1-0-1) to their first win of the season.

Ryan Croddick, James Danielczyk and Kuras each scored goals and Ronan Hickey made 14 saves to lead Rumson past the Blue Devils (4-1-1), who entered the game unbeaten and ranked No. 19 in the state by NJ Advance Media. Rumson was playing in just its second game of the season and first since Jan. 25.
