WEST ORANGE, NJ - Four different players found the back of the net to lead Verona-Glen Ridge ice hockey to a 4-1 victory over Scotch Plains-Fanwood at Codey Arena on Sunday.

Chandler Otterbein capitalized on a power play to put Verona on the board, assisted by Noah Martinez and Alec Vecchione.  Verona-Glen Ridge followed that up with a goal from Rowan Brennan with help from Martinez to give the Hillbillies a 2-0 advantage at the end of the first period.

Scotch Plains-Fanwood's William Mauer delivered a goal early in the second period, but it wouldn't be enough to get passed Verona-Glen Ridge.  Rowan Brennan scored early in the third period with help from Martinez and Aidan Brennan added a final goal with just under two minutes left in regulation, assisted by Nolan Campbell.
