Madison Dodgers Ice Hockey Comes Back to Beat West Morris 2-1


MORRISTOWN — The Madison Dodger hockey team came back from a 1-0 deficit to beat the West Morris Wolfpack 2-1 on Thursday evening.  The Dodgers get their second win of the season.

In the first period, Madison came out a little sluggish and was not able to convert on their two power play opportunities. Both teams could not find the back of the net in the first and went into the second period tied 0-0.

“I thought we were a little bit tired to start out,” Madison Forward Charlie Cleaves said. “Maybe it was a hangover from our first win of the season."

West Morris scored the first goal of the game from the stick of Kieran Gruby with 9:14 remaining in the second period.  However, Madison would respond with a goal from Cleaves from Matt DeBoer just four minutes after to make it 1-1.

“These guys have really good leadership,” Head coach Dave Hansen said. “I think getting that quick goal after they scored was what got that fire going."

Cleaves would score his second goal of the game in the beginning of the third period to give Madison a 2-1 lead.

“I expect a lot out of Charlie,” Hansen said. “He gives his all for all 45 minutes and really puts the team before himself."

Defensemen Will Scavone made a great play by stopping a West Morris two on one attack. The Wolfpack would end up pulling their goalie with 1:30 remaining but could not find the back of the net to tie it up.

The Dodgers will try to stay hot when they play Chatham on Saturday, December 3rd at 4:15 PM.
