SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Girls Ice Hockey Team came from behind to beat their rival -- and only other public school foe -- Princeton High School, 5-4.
Cecily Stabler had two goals, including the game-winner with 3:05 left on a power play, dynamic defenseman Teia Ross added two goals, Shannon Groskoph scored and assisted on another, and Delaney O'Dowd contributed two assists to pace Summit.
The Hilltoppers trailed 2-0 at the end of the first period on Princeton goals from Alexa Zammit at 8:28 and Maggie Herring at 5:57.
Summit got on the scoreboard at the 11:50 mark of the second period when O'Dowd fed Groskoph, but Isabelle Sohn answered just over four minutes later to restore the Tigers two-goal advantage at 3-1.
The Hilltoppers responded by scoring the next three goals of the game, two of which came in the second period. Ross and Stabler each got their first goals of the game 13 seconds apart -- both coming unassited at 5:32 and 5:19, respectively -- to tie the game at three heading to the final period.
Ross scored her second of the night, assisted by Groskoph and O'Dowd, at the lucky 13:13 mark of the third, to put Summit up 4-3.
Sydney Rubin tied it back up again for Princeton, however, finding the back of the net at the 11:48 mark, before Stabler won it with just over three minutes to go.
