quarterfinal times

March 9, 2006 on 3:54 pm | In breaking news | 8 Comments

through a bit of sleuthing this afternoon while watching the Dominican Republic hammer Italy in baseball, I believe I have figured out the schedule for this weekend’s quarterfinals:

Saturday – South Mountain
4:15 pm (11) Notre Dame vs. (3) Pope John
6:15 pm (10) St. Augustine Prep vs. (2) Delbarton
Sunday – South Mountain
5:30 pm (5) Morristown-Beard vs. (4) Don Bosco Prep
7:30 pm (8) Bishop Eustace vs. (1) Seton Hall Prep
Sunday – Mennen Arena
6:00 pm (13) Clifton vs. (5) Montgomery
8:00 pm (9) Ridge vs. (1) Morris Knolls
Monday – Mennen Arena
6:00 pm (6) Bridgewater-Raritan vs. (3) Toms River North
8:00 pm (10) Indian Hills vs. (2) Randolph

Additionally, I am leaving the state tomorrow and moving to take a broadcasting job with the Alexandria Aces, an independent minor-league team in Alexandria, Louisiana. The timing is not great, since I will not be able to cover any of the 14 remaining hockey games, but I will try to keep results as up-to-date as possible and, internet connection permitting, will put together final rankings after the state title games.

I want to thank all the people who have asked about my job situation and wished me well or offered advice and suggestions, and maybe some of you will listen in this summer when our season gets underway May 16. As for next year, I cannot promise anything. I hope to continue hosting scores and standings at www.njhockey.org, as I did in college, but I imagine rankings and more detailed coverage will be beyond me.

  2. You will be sorely missed. Your analysis has been sent to friends in England, California and lots of other places where hockey is a sport played on grass with curved sticks. I wish you luck and only hope that the local reporters step up and give deeper coverage.

  7. Jon –
    I have followed your site for 5 years now – my son was the Randolph captain in 2003 when they won the state publics. I have printed and kept numerous articles of yours – in a treasured scrapbook. I have always been impressed by the fair yet enthusiastic coverage you have always presented. Your love of the game is so evident. I wish you the best – LA better appreciate what they are getting. Thank you for all you have done. RHS Mom (Booster Club officer)
