SUMMIT, NJ - The chance of a post-Union County Championship game letdown for any Jim Davidson-coached team is about on par with the probability that the Morris Avenue Bridge will re-open any day now.


No, while the celebratory memories were still wafting about in the light breeze at Investors Bank Field, it was back to business for the Maroon and White as they faced Ridgewood in another edition of the 'Maroon Derby'. And business is exactly what the boys from the 07901 took care of the day, assuming control with a powerful first quarter and then steadily finishing the job en route to a 9-3 victory over the visitors.

The victory, their fourth straight after two consecutive defeats, improves Summit's season record to 11-2.

Senior captain Harry Kilkowski and classmeate Tom Fishcetti both scored twice, and senior captain Will Vitton made nine saves before being spelled late in the final quarter by senior Julian Rupkey, who had two stops of his own.

The Hilltoppers jumped on Ridgewood in a four-goal first quarter that saw goals from Kilkowski, junior Jackson Tyler and two from Fischetti -- the last of which came with 48.7 seconds left in the frame.

Senior FOGO Joe Persche set the tone and the table by going five-for-five from 'the X', and Summit dominated both shots (9-3) and ground balls (12-4).

The Hilltoppers' second stanza was far less impressive than their opening 12 minutes however, after surrendering a goal to make it 4-1, they got a big boost heading into halftime when senior Eamon McTernan took a feed from classmate Nick Thomson and rifled home with just 4.6 seconds left before halftime.

Up 5-1 to begin the third quarter, Summit scored the next two goals -- an underhand whip from junior Greg Moller and a junior Skyler Schluter to Thomson connection -- which pretty much put the contest on ice. Kilkowski notched his second of the day to make it 8-2 early in the final quarter, then turned provider for freshman Luke Dinola at the 7:32 mark, further cementing the outcome.

The tough tests keep coming for Summit, as they will next take on Moorestown May 12 at Investors Bank Field. Face-off is set for 11 a.m.
