“I was really impressed with the way the team played today,” said Coach Russell Berner. “They dominated most of the game. The guys stuck with our game plan and things all came together in the 3rd period.”

The game started off slowly with both teams remaining scoreless after the 1st period. Then towards the end of the 2nd period Edison began to build momentum. By the 3rd period there was no stopping Edison.

Nikolas Cheng scored his first goal at 6:42 into the 3rd period followed up by Chance Berry with his first goal at the 10 minute mark.

Robert Distefano scored two goals a little over a minute later, both within 23 seconds only to be followed by Daniel Naraine 12 seconds later with a goal.

Two more goals by Distefano to end the game, 7-0 against Morris Hills.

“I am hoping that we can keep the momentum built up from our last 3 games and get on a bit of a roll as we head into the new year,” said Berner. “Games like today show what our team is capable of.”

Edison plays their next game on Saturday, 6 p.m. at the Woodbridge Community Center against Oratory Prep.
