SOMERSET, NJ -- Jamie Zimmerman scored four goals to lead Ridge to a 6-1 ice hockey victory over Pope John Thursday at ProTec Ponds.
Zimmerman scored three goals in the second period and one in the third for Ridge (7-1-2). The Red Devils had taken a 1-0 lead on a goal by Ty Ebeling less than two minutes into the game, with assists from Colin Kirkwood and Grant Loges.
