UNION, NJ - The Gov. Livingston Highlanders (3-2) suffered a 5-0 loss to the Summit Hilltoppers (4-2) at Union Sports Arena on Saturday after being shut out by Millburn, 3-0, on Friday.

"5-0 doesn't give it justice," said Coach Matt Anderson. "It was a very even game. We had many, if not more, higher quality scoring chances." The Highlanders registered 17 shots compared to Summit's 21.

The difference, Summit capitalized on their scoring chances when the Highlanders could not.

"Compared to what we have done in the past against Summit, they had a lot less shots, the shots were lower quality," said Anderson. "They capitalized on their best chances."

"All of Summit's goals were how you score goals on a good goalie. Shoot the puck low, to the corners with traffic in front," said Anderson.

Thomas Shung's bookend goals in the first and third powered Summit past GL. Will Vitton, Charlie Collins and Dan Hicks registered the other goals for the Hilltoppers. Danny Kane picked up two assists, while Owen McLaughlin, Hicks, and J.P. Jacobello also had assists. 

GL had their opportunites by freshman Carson Wahlers and multiple shots by sophomore Billy Alexander and junior Danny Kramer

"They came out strong, as soon as we had chances they shot over the net," said Anderson. "When you get the chances and don't put it in and then Summit had a chance and put it in," results in the lopsided score.

Gov. Livingston will have one day off before they face Cranford (1-3-1) on Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Warinanco Park.

Dear Editor:

As a 26-year-old Scotch Plains resident who cares more about the well-being of our town than about local politics, I am extremely disappointed that the Scotch Plains Democratic Committee leadership has decided to abandon Colleen Mahr in her run for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee.
