Gordon Cup Quarterfinals

Seton Hall Prep 4, CBA 2

Sophomore forward Leighton Biesiadecki scored the game-tying goal for the Colts midway through the third period but a short-handed goal by Kent Bishop with 6:20 left in regulation sent the Pirates to victory in the opening round of the Gordon Cup.

It is Seton Hall Prep's first win over CBA since 2006 and the first time the Pirates have reached the Gordon Cup semifinals since 2007. CBA was the reigning Gordon Cup champion.

CBA took a 1-0 lead on a goal by sophomore defenseman Patrick Reilly early in the second period but Seton Hall tied the game 1:01 later when Aidan D'Urso flipped an alley-oop pass to Brenden Waivada, who scored on a breakaway. The Pirates took a 2-1 lead just 31 seconds later on a goal by D'Urso.

Biesiadecki's power-play goal pulled the Colts even and they had the chance to take the lead on a power-play shortly thereafter, but Bishop blocked a point shot and skated in on a breakaway where he scored the go-ahead goal. Seton Hall added an empty-net goal with 26 seconds left.
