Playoff hockey does not disappoint!  Southern Regional gets a 4-3 win over Hunterdon Central in the second round of the Public “A” hockey playoffs.  Watch all the highlights and post-game reaction from Winding River Rink in Toms River

Southern Regional 4  Hunterdon Central 3 (OT)

Matt Scalvino’s skate deflected a shot from the point 4:14 into overtime to give the Rams a 4-3 overtime win over Hunterdon Central and a spot in the Public “A” quarterfinals.  Southern built a 3-1 lead on a Hunter Bello goal and a pair of Nick Godfrey scores, but Hunterdon Central scored a pair of goals a minute apart to force overtime.  Southern will face the winner of Manalapan and Randolph on Monday.
