Livingston's 42 shots Not Enough as They Tie Pascack Valley

January 30, 2013 at 11:46 PM

WEST ORANGE, N.J. - Looking for revenge following a state tournament defeat, the Livingston Lancer ice hockey team skated to a 3-3 tie with Pascack Valley on Wednesday at Codey Arena.

In the first period, it started to look ugly for the Lancers. Within the first eight minutes of the game, Pascack Valley caught two breaks that were both costly, as Pascack Valley's John Scarano and Devon Palmieri each scored a goal.

However, the Lancers picked up momentum after a slashing penalty was called on the Indians. Although the Lancers didn't score on the power play, they continued to keep it in the offensive zone even when both teams were at full strength. Finally, junior forward Tal Finberg found the back of the net to cut Pascack Valley's lead in the half.
In the second and third periods, Livingston controlled most of the game, out shooting the Indians by a large margin, thanks to bullets shot by Jonny Garfinkel and Mike Koval.

Livingston's Cameron Friedfertig found the net early in the second period, however, Pascack Valley got a goal of their own on a breakaway that was helped out when Garfinkel, the lone man back fell while trying to move backwards on the ice.

The score was 3-2 going into the third period, but again, early in the period, Livingston fought back and scored another goal, this time it was Cameron's brother, Cole Friedfertig. That goal became the tying and final goal of the game as the result was a 3-3 tie.

Despite the tie, Livingston put 42 shots on net, scoring on only three attempts.

"We knew they had a great goalie," defenseman Mike Koval explained. "We wanted to get as many shots off that we could."

Last year, the Lancers ended the season with 12 wins on the year. Livingston tried to surpass last year's win column, however, they came up short today.

"Next game (we play), we need to get that 13th win," captain Ben Arden said.
