Middletown South 5 Middletown North 3

Ryan Lambert scored two goals and two assists as the Eagles hold off a comeback attempt from the Lions to win the Middletown Mayors Cup.  Lambert got the scoring started just 1:45 into the game.  Travis Yawger and Mike Racioppi gave Middletown South a commanding 3-0 lead.  Brad Heuer scored a pair of goals, one in the 2nd and one early in the 3rd, to get the Lions within 3-2.  Lambert’s second goal of the night put the lead back to two at 4-2, but Middletown North had one more surge as John Hallard cut the deficit to 4-3.  A Deven Ralph empty net goal sealed the win.  Tempers flared in the third period as North’s John Dinnocenzo and South’s Craig Bahrs received disqualifications for fighting.  Watch the highlights of a great Shore Conference battle in our US Army Hockey Game of the Week:
