MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Morristown-Beard varsity ice hockey team continued their hot start Monday night as the, Crimson edged Chatham 2-1 at Mennen Arena.

Chatham dominated early with numerous scoring chances, peppered Crimson goaltender Peter Alevras with 12 shots in the first period. However, the senior goaltender turned away all 12 shots to keep the Cougars off the scoreboard. Morristown-Beard took advantage of the few opportunities it got when junior Josh Schappel streaked down the left side and fed the puck across the crease to sophomore Chris Brunner-Grande to break the tie with 1:53 remaining in the period.

The second period was much more frantic than the first as both teams came out firing. The Crimson got their first power play opportunity of the game very early when Chatham junior Robert Graziano was called for a tripling penalty. Morristown-Beard extended their lead during the ensuing  power play when Schappel fed Alex Borowiec for a slap shot with 13:51 left in the period.

Crimson head coach Randy Velischek had a lot of confidence going into the game in his special teams unit.

“We take a good amount of time practicing these situations,” he said.  “It proved vital to our victory tonight.”

The Cougars caught a break with 10:35 left in the second period when they received a five-on-three power play after Thomas Rago and Matt Sauder were called for cross checking and hooking penalties. The Cougars capitalized on the situation as Graziano found Austin Pierce across the crease to get Chatham on the board and cut the deficit to 2-1.

The third period continued to be tight as both teams had scoring opportunities early. Chatham’s best attempt came when a shot went whistling off the right post with 7:50 remaining in the game. Just minutes later, the Crimson worked a two-on-one, however, the shot was turned away by Chatham goalie C.J. Albanese. The Cougars provided one last push with 38 seconds left, however the shot went wide and the Crimson held on for the victory.

The Crimson improve to 3-0, while the Cougars fell to 1-2 on the young season.

Velischek was happy to escape with the win.

“We didn’t deserve the win tonight, as they outshot, outhit, and flat out outplayed us tonight,” Velischek said. “We had eight days off and we came out flat and it showed.”
