ROSELLE, NJ - Trailing in a game by multiple goals for the only the second time all season, the Summit High School Boys Varsity Ice Hockey Team fought back to earn a 3-3 tie with Ridge at Warinanco Skating Center.

Freshman Aidan Wiseman scored on the Power Play with just one second remaining in the second period to tie the game at three. Wiseman's tally was the Hilltoppers' third goal over the period's final 10 minutes after Summit had fallen behind 3-0.

Ridge's Alex Knonvalov, who had a goal and two assists on the night, opened the scoring just over a minute into the game with an unassisted goal. Four minutes later, he set up Luke Rich and it was 2-0.

The same tandem collaborated again just 1:14 into the second period and Summit was in trouble, down 3-0, however there were still nearly two full periods of hockey to play.

Summit got going and Tom Pryymak was finally able to put a puck past Ridge's Chris Ambrozy at the 9:53 mark to make it 3-1. Assists went to senior captain David Sharpe and junior alternate captain Greg Moller.

The Maroon and White got their second 'oh brother' goal in as many games when sophomore Jake Puskar set up senior captain Johnny Puskar. There was 2:32 to go in the second period, and Summit now trailed by just a goal, 3-2.

The Hilltoppers then went to work on the man advantage and Pryymak located senior captain Will Vitton who found Wiseman in front with a half a net to shoot at but not a lot of time to do it. The freshman beat the clock and Ambrozy to tie the game.

Energized, Summit pressed for a third goal but could not put the winner past Ambrozy, who finished with 39 saves. Sophomore Nikita Pryymak had 23 saves as Summit handily outshot Ridge 42-26.

Summit, now 17-2-2 on the season, returns to the Union Sports Arena ice to face Princeton High School February 9. Opening puck drop is set for 4:10 p.m.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
