 NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Behind nine goals between Joey D’Anna and Tyler Lawton, with a strong effort in net by senior Pat Trezza, the Pioneers were able to blow past Johnson on their way to their 7th straight victory on Senior Day.

Chas Cadmus, Josh Cohen, Joe Crisafi, Michael Garrity, Tyler Lawton, Tyler Palmieri, Pat Trezza, Chris Vass, and Billy Vignali were all honored before the game for their efforts and dedication towards their team over the years.

After the festivities took place, the Pioneers jumped out to a 5-2 halftime lead and never looked back, exploding for eight second half goals, while holding the Crusaders to only two tallies.

The leading force behind that strong second half effort was Trezza, who for the 5th time in the past six games allowed five goals or less, as he’s been the backbone of this red-hot Pioneer team.  “I do my best to lead the defense and the bottom line is I need to make saves,” said Trezza, who stopped 12 of 16 shots he faced.  “My defense has been solid all year and we work off each other to get the job done.”

Up front on offense, he was padded with a comfortable lead, as Joey D’Anna rattled off five goals and Tyler Lawton added four more to propel New Providence to victory.

With this mid-season success the Pioneers have been enjoying, Trezza isn’t looking too far ahead to the ultimate goal, which is claiming a state title.  “We haven’t even thought about going to states yet,” said Trezza.  “With two huge conference games and county games coming up, we all know the most important day is the next one.”

That next game is on Tuesday, when New Providence takes on Scotch Plains-Fanwood at Lieder Field at 4 pm, with their seven-game winning streak on the line.

And Over Here is the Dining Hall 2

My very first job in admissions was while I was still an undergraduate myself as a tour guide.  Very early on they indoctrinated us with some tricks of the trade.  It’s a dining hall, not a cafeteria.  A residence hall, not a dorm.  If you have to divulge some negative bit of information, sandwich it between two positives.  There were instructions for glossing over ...
