SUMMIT, NJ - Getting the first and last word in on the Hilltopper scoresheet, Summit's Morgen Shung scored the opening and final goals of the game for The Maroon & White, part of a three-goal, Hat Trick Performance that powered the Summit High School Girls Ice Hockey team to an 8-5 victory over Princeton at the Warinaco Skating Center.
Shung opened the scoring at the 11:28 mark of the first period as Summit took command of the game with 4-0 first frame blitz. Cecily Stabler, Amanda Michaels and Blakely McCann all scored in the onslaught.
It was 7-0 Hilltoppers -- as Sydney Cornell, Shung, and Lily Neilan found the back of the net -- before Princeton finally broke through with 3:05 remaining.
Despite getting outscored 4-1 in the third period, Shung got her Hat Trick goal at 11:15 and Summit cruised home to improve their record to 12-4.
Julia Oppici stopped 31 shots between the pipes for the Hilltoppers, and Emily Sharpe, Grace Donohue, Stabler (2), and Neilan all tallied assists.
Summit next faces Oak Knoll February 3 at the Bridgewater Sports Arena. Face-off is set for 8 p.m.
