WEST ORANGE, NJ — Livingston varsity ice hockey's Chase Friedfertig earned his 100th career point in the first round of the NJSIAA Public A state tournament on Monday, leading the fifth-seeded Lancers to a 5-1 victory over No. 28 Lawrence at Codey Arena.

Friedfertig scored his 99th career goal in the first period to add to Connor Flaherty’s goal for a 2-0 lead heading into the second. His 100th goal came in the second period with help from Max Solomon and Ronan Tattersall.

Max Solomon also scored in the second off an assist from Friedfertig, bringing the score to a solid 4-0 heading into the third. Lawrence answered back with a goal from Nicholas Giaramita in the third, but a fifth goal from Livingston’s Jacob Fuhrman secured the victory for the Lancers.

Lancers goalie Matthew Delseni contributed to the victory with 19 saves throughout the game, only allowing one through. Assists also came from Ted Lee and Minkyu Yang.

With their highest ranking in more the 35 years, the No. 5 Lancers are considered a strong contender in this tournament and will take on No. 12 Morristown on Friday.

Despite being the defending champions, Morristown has had a rocky season thus far and was ultimately seeded at No. 12. Should Livingston get past the Colonials on Friday at Codey Arena, there is potential for the Lancers to skate their way into the semifinals and a new champion will be named this year.

Top-seeded Morris Knolls is currently the most likely to make it to the final and the Lancers hope to meet them there.
