WEST ORANGE, NJ - Will Vitton scored at 7:45 of overtime, and the Summit High School Boys Varsity Hockey Team defeated Livingston 3-2 to win the McInnis Cup at Richard J. Codey Arena.

Vitton channeled his inner Bryce Harper and swatted the rebound of a Tom Pryymak shot out of the air and past Lancers goaltender Matthew Delseni.

Wilson Lees in goal for Summit stopped 35 out of 37 Livingston shots -- including several big saves in the overtime period -- as The Maroon & White captured the New Jersey Interscholastic Ice Hockey League Cup in just their first season in the League and competition.

The Hilltoppers appeared set to claim the Cup in regulation, holding a 2-1 entering the game's final minutes, however Livingston -- with Delseni pulled for an extra attacker -- tied the game on a goal by Ronan Tattersall with 1:03 remaining.

The Lancers took a 1-0 lead at the 10:48 mark of the first period when Chase Friedfertig scored on a power play.

Summit leveled the score less than a minute later when a Johnny Puskar stretch pass sent Pryymak in alone on a breakaway. The freshman buried the puck upper right top shelf -- where grandma keeps the cookie jar -- and it was 1-1 at 10:02.

Pryymak fed captain Corey McManus with 7:38 left in the second period, and Summit took a 2-1 lead.

Lees held the fort all the way until the final minute and, after Livingston scored, the game headed to a fourth, 'sudden victory period.

After several Lees saves in the extra session, Pryymak's laser from the high left face-off circle was stopped by Delseni, but Vitton -- steaming in from the right side -- was first to the puck and swatted it home to cue the Summit celebration.

The eighth-seeded Hilltoppers next begin NJSIAA Public B State Tournament play when they take on 25th-seeded Hopewell Valley February 21 at Warinanco Skating Center. The puck drops at 6 p.m.
