SUMMIT, NJ – Nick Kilkowski scored five goals and had three assists and Sonny Round added a goal and seven assists to lead the Summit Hilltoppers past West Morris Central 13-4 on Monday afternoon at Tatlock Field.

Round assisted on all three Summit goals in the first quarter.  He found teammate Terry McKenna in front who scored on the man advantage after a West Morris Central penalty to give Summit the early 1-0 advantage.

On Summit’s next two goals, Round earned two more assists on feeds to Kilkowski.  The first of those scores came when Kilkowski made a nice move to the front of the goal before scoring off of Round’s centering pass.  Kilkowski also scored from the center slot with just nine seconds remaining in the opening period to put Summit up 3-1.

“A lot of guys were finishing today.  We were moving the ball quick and rotating their (West Morris Central’s) zone and the looks were there,” Round said of the first quarter.

The second quarter also went in Summit’s favor.  Round once again found Kilkowski cutting in front of the oppositions net as they widened their lead to three goals.  After a West Morris Central penalty, McKenna scored his second of the game off a pass from Round.

Summit was up 5-1 at that point and the Hilltoppers were still hungry for more.  For the fourth time in the game, Round assisted on a Kilkowski goal when he found him all alone near the left side of the West Morris Central goal at the 7:49 mark of the second quarter.

“It’s getting stronger every game.  There’s guys on him and I’ll just feed him the ball,” Round said after the game of the chemistry between him and Kilkowski.  “He’s just so good at keeping his stick to his body and burying (shots),” he continued.

Tim Yager struck for Summit just fifteen seconds before halftime to give Summit a commanding 8-1 lead at the break.

Coming out of the halftime gate, McKenna scored his third goal of the contest on a strong drive down the left side of the field before firing a shot into the back of the cage.

Midway through the third period, Summit took a couple of penalties to allow West Morris Central to score the next three goals of the game. 

Their three scores came in a span of just two minutes and ten seconds.

After that, Summit took back control and scored the last two goals of the third quarter.  McKenna assisted on Michael Ford’s goal at the 6:42 mark and then Kilkowski found teammate Ryan Bringewatt in front of the West Morris Central goal before he buried in a shot.  Summit was up 11-4 heading into the final quarter of play.

“I think we’re moving the ball better.  I just thought that a lot of the guys distributed the ball,” Summit Head Coach Jim Davidson told The Alternative Press.  “I think a lot of guys were looking to get shot opportunities,” he continued about the offense.

The Summit defense was also strong on Monday afternoon.  They allowed only fifteen shots throughout the contest and forced several turnovers when West Morris Central had their few possessions.  Goaltender Peter Badgley finished with three saves.

“I thought the defense did a good job.  We had a good solid effort.  We just got to keep working,” Coach Davidson commented about his defense.

Kilkowski netted his fifth score of the game in the fourth quarter and then Round added a goal with just over four minutes left in the game.

Summit is now 8-0 on their season and remains the number one ranked team in the Star Ledger Top Twenty.  They will next host New Caanan High School on Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m.
