Bergen Catholic 6, Pope John 5
Pope John saw a four-goal lead in the second period evaporate in a 6-5 loss to Bergen Catholic at the Ice House in Hackensack.
Jack Jarosiewicz had two goals and two assists for Pope John, which led 5-1 in the second period before Bergen Catholic scored five unanswered goals. Emporio Iencio had two goals and an assist, while Jack Kelmer had a goal and an assist in the loss.
Pope John fell to 6-7-6 with the loss.
Northern Highlands 3, Morristown-Beard 2
Noah Jones and Billy Moloney each had a goal and an assist in Morristown-Beard’s 3-2 loss to Northern Highlands at Sport-O-Rama in Monsey, N.Y.
Moloney gave Morristown-Beard the lead in the first period, before Northern Highlands struck for two second period goals. Jones tied it up early in the third, but Collin Prugh broke through for the game-winner just minutes later for Northern Highlands.
Morristown-Beard is now winless in its last five games and has dropped to 8-11-1. It has three regular season games remaining, and will need to win at least one in order to remain eligible for an at-large state tournament bid. If it wins all three against St. Peter’s Prep, Chatham, and Livingston, it would finish .500 and would automatically qualify.
