  • At Mennen Arena, No. 18 Morristown-Beard took over the Mennen Division lead with a hard-fought 3-1 win over No. 14 Chatham. The Crimson led 2-0 on a pair of goals from Dan Shurts, one in each period, before a late Jeff Chatterton goal brought the Cougars back from the dead. But John Yanchek, who made it look easy all night, got his pad out to stop a Pat Coyne backhander with 26 seconds left, and Corey Schneider added a power play empty-net goal to seal the win. Beard (5-1), which beat No. 5 Bergen Catholic on Monday, wore down Chatham (4-2) by skating three lines all night to counter the Cougars’ physical forecheck.
  • Jake Kornblatt hit for the hat trick and Eric Ely had four assists as Rumson/Fair Haven (3-2-1) breezed past West Windsor-Plainsboro South (3-2-1) 5-0 at IceLand. RFH had a 37-13 shot advantage.
  • In the Central Red Division, Kevin Tino had a hat trick as No. 13 Bridgewater-Raritan cruised past Montclair 8-3 at Clary Anderson Arena. At the Woodbridge Community Center, Ridge got a goal on a deflected point shot with 36 seconds remaining and its net empty to tie St. Joseph Metuchen for the second time on the young season, this time by a 4-4 score.
  • Several Morris County powers also won on the night, though in different fashions. No. 11 Randolph cruised past NBIAL favorite Indian Hills 6-1 at Aspen Ice in Randolph, while No. 2 Delbarton beat Bishop Hendricken, a Rhode Island state finalist last year, 3-2 at Thayer Arena in Warwick, R.I.
  • In other action, No. 3 Pope John scored an impressive 4-1 win over Malvern Prep of Pennsylvania, and No. 7 CBA topped its combined goal total from its first five games with a 6-0 rout of No. 17 Monsignor Donovan at Wall Sports Arena. In a non-league game in Vineland, No. 9 St. Augustine Prep dismissed Notre Dame‘s challenge by a 7-3 margin, although the Irish outshot the Hermits.
