WEST ORANGE, NJ — The latest chapter in an athletic rivalry that stretches across multiple years and sports seasons ended in a draw on Wednesday, as Millburn and Livingston played to a 3-3 tie, with each team scoring one goal per period.
Livingston got two goals from Michael Mumm (1:27 left in period one, assisted by Dylan Flaherty and Cade Pendergast) (3:11 left in period three, assisted by Dylan Foley) and one from Flaherty (9:27 left in period two, assisted by Mumm).
Millburn's goals came from Lucas Skolnick (0:14 left in period one, assisted by Fyodor Brylin and Ryan Potechin), Ben Hayum (4:47 left in period two, assisted by Vladislav Ragozin) and Vladislav Ragozin (5:32 left in period three, unassisted).
Neither team could get more than a goal ahead of the other, and when one team scored, the other responded within a short time to draw even.
Livingston head coach Dave Conklin said that he was happy with his team's ability to score the tying goal, but that they also left some opportunities out on the ice.
"We had a tremendous amount of offensive zone time," Conklin said, "and we've got to take advantage of our opportunities. Their goalie played very well. We were able to come back and score in the end, but we had a tremendous amount of good chances, and we need to capitalize if we're going to be successful."
