Two champions are crowned at Codey Arena on Thursday night as the NJIIHL cup championship season comes to a close. We’ve got highlights from the highly-coveted Gordon Cup as well as an upset in the McInnis Cup final.
Christian Brothers 2 Don Bosco 0 | Gordon Cup Final
John Donohoe’s impressive 33 save shutout was key to the Colts topping the Ironmen to win yet another Gordon Cup trophy. CBA (23-0-3) played without Evan Brown and Christian Chouha but didn’t miss a beat against Don Bosco (18-6-1). Aidan Guinnessey opened the scoring for CBA in the first period and Leighton Biesiadecki closed it out with an insurance goal in the third.

After falling behind 1-0 to begin the first period, Westfield tied the game and would take the lead on back to back goals from Thomas Conrod.
