WEST ORANGE, NJ- The Highlanders fell 8-2 to Livingston Saturday afternoon at Codey Arena. The game slipped away from GL during the second period when the Lancers scored four consecutive goals in the final six minutes of the period. GL took to the ice without their leading scorer, Carson Wahlers.
The Highlanders had a 100 percent success rate on the power play scoring both of their goals a man up. Kyle Wahlers scored the first GL goal four minutes into the second period, and Brian Gray buried a slap shot from the left circle off a feed from Drew Skotarczak three minutes later.
GL head coach Matt Anderson said the team is still working on their game. "We're just trying to start playing a new game where we try to hold on to the puck a little bit longer and make smarter plays and get used to playing against stronger teams," Anderson said, "Some of the younger guys who are getting more time now are starting to come along."
The Highlanders next host Watchung Hills on Sunday, Jan. 28th at 8:15 p.m. on a night dedicated to William Coyle who will drop the puck.
