BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ—The Gov. Livingston Ice Hockey Team fell short to Millburn, 3-0, on Friday Night at the Union Sports Arena.

A quick pace was set on both sides of the ice as the teams attempted to take control. The beginning of the game marked a period of opportunity for the Highlanders as GL was presented with many chances to score in the first few minutes—but failed to finiish.

Danny Kramer ‘17, captain of the GL squad, was a key player in controlling the ice and creating plays for the Highlanders.

 “We have been working on getting more scoring chances,” Kramer said, “This showed during the first period when we out-shot Millburn.”

Many of those opportunities for Gov. Livingston came short in putting points on the scoreboard. Momentum was behind the Highlanders for the majority of the first period as the players found gaps and executed plays.

“In the first period, it was the penalties that killed the momentum,” Kramer added.

The Millburn team took its chances after the switch in momentum and effectively put the puck in the net with 1:44 in the first. Just a mere 40 seconds later, Millburn was able to add another score to the game, positioning Millburn up 2-0 at the end of the first.

After a Millburn shot connected with the net from far out in the second period, GL remained down 3-0. The Highlanders fought back with physical and mental toughness, but were unable to make up for the deficit.

“Tonight we learned that you can never beat a team by taking a lot of penalties. These penalties caused a decrease in shots on net for us which is crucial in our style of play,” Kramer said, “Going forward we will learn to play our style and not fall into the other team’s game plan. We are going to learn from our mistakes last night and use it against Summit.”

The GL squad looks to improve its record on Saturday versus Summit at the Union Sports Arena, puck drops at 6:20 p.m.
