(9) Madison Falls to (8) Summit 2-0 in Second Round of the State Tournament


UNION, NJ – The Summit Hilltoppers got the best of the Madison Dodgers on Friday evening, winning 2-0 in the second round of the NJSIAA Public B Tournament.  Summit will play top-seeded Glen Rock in the quarterfinals on Monday, February 27th.

After heading into the second period tied, 0-0, the Dodgers had a chance to take the lead after a Summit penalty.  Unfortunately, they could not convert on the opportunity and all game struggled to get good chances.

Credit the Summit defense for blocking the Dodgers shots, and really made the Madison offense work hard just to get the puck on net.

With 5:27 remaining in the third period, Summit found the back of the net on a one-timer to break up the tie. Just a couple minutes later, the Hilltoppers again found the back of the net, which would seal the victory to send them into the next round.

Despite letting up two goals, Dodger goalie Matt Ubertaccio played a great game, recording 35 saves on 37 shots.

For Madison, it’s a tough loss to swallow, as they played their hearts out the whole season and really thought they could make a run in the tournament.
