LITTLE FALLS, NJ - Though they were leading throughout the game, Passaic Valley/Cedar Grove tied Fair Lawn 4-4 at Floyd Hall Friday night.

The Hornets were on the board first when Alex Lopresti scored on an assist from Joe Kubu during a power play in the first minutes of the game. PV's Matt Nelson followed that up with a goal assisted by LoPresti and Shane McGuire with just 2:58 left in the period giving the Hornets a 2-0 lead. However, Fair Lawn's Thomas Arena found the back of the net with less than six seconds left in the first to put his team on the board.
