Livingston Hockey Lose Final Regular Season Game To MKA

February 12, 2013 at 12:52 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Lancers hockey team traveled to Montclair for their final regular season game against Montclair Kimberly Academy.

Like MKA, the Lancers had many seniors see their final game minutes in the regular season. However, in the end, MKA was too much to handle, defeating Livingston by the score of 6-2.

Early in the game, MKA's Devin Pepe scored an easy goal in front of the net to go up one on their home ice. But the Lancers came right back with one of their own, about a minute a later, as Adam Lanel found the puck in front of an empty net and put it through to tie it up.

MKA had taken control of the game after Lanel's goal, scoring two more goals from Robert Jaworski and Pepe to go out in front 3-1 after one period of play.

Into the second, Livingston looked to try to get back in the game, however, all signs of a comeback vanished when Conor Nolan scored for MKA to make the score 4-1.

Later in the second period, the Lancers and MKA skated four-on-four. Livingston's Tal Finberg was the first to come out of the box. Staying on the ice after the penalty, Finberg got the puck on the left side of the net, and  saw an opening around Ike Osbon, MKA's goalie who only saw 15 shots on the day. Finberg made the score 4-2 on the power play goal, however, that would be the final goal scored by the Lancers.

MKA added a goal in the second period and one more in the third period to beat Livingston 6-2 in an uneven battle.

With the regular season behind them, Livingston finishes with a 13-5-4 record, good enough to place third in the conference tournament, trailing only Nutley and MKA. 

"This season has been pretty good for us," senior forward Seth Crockett said. "Everyone's working hard and we're all playing together as a team. We played well and won a lot of games so far. The regular season is over meaning were looking ahead to conference and states. The seniors, or really the whole team are gonna give everything they can for us to win it all."

The Lancers will begin tournament play as a No. 3 seed, playing against No. 6 Millburn in the first round of the tournament at the Codey Arena of South Mountain. The two teams split the season series in 2012-1, but the Lancers believe Millburn hasn't seen the best of thier ability just yet.

"It's a conference game and our goal is to win the conference playoffs," Crockett said. "We're going to come out fired up and ready to go. We're going to be very prepared against them and were not gonna take them lightly. Millburn hasnt seen our best yet."
