LITTLE FALLS - When they met in December, it was Passaic Valley/Cedar Grove who walked away wit the win, but this time the Hornets could not hold back the Clifton Mustangs who won the match up at Floyd Arena Friday night 4-1.
A big crowd showed up at Floyd Arena to cheer on their teams. Clifton struck first when Nick Petriella found the back of the net with assistance from James Fusaro in the first period. The Hornets answered early in the second period with a goal by Dan Lapinski aided by Alex LoPresti.
However, Fusaro struck three more times, one in the second with Petriella and two more in the third with Shawn Meneghin and Petriella to win the game.
Nick Dinardo had 23 saves for the Hornets, while Tyler Gibson saved 26 for Clifton.
