The high school hockey playoffs are down to the quarterfinals following Friday’s action on the ice. JSZ has a pair of first round match-ups with Gloucester Catholic hosting Saint Rose and Rumson-Fair Haven battling Halvorsen Cup champ Mendham.
Rumson-Fair Haven 6 Mendham 0 | Public “C” First Round
The Bulldogs busted open a 2-0 game with four third period goals to earn a spot in the state quarterfinals and a much-anticipated showdown with fellow Shore Conference rival Manasquan. RFH got first period goals from Ryan Croddick and Sam Catalano to take a 2-0 lead. Ronan Hickey had a 16 save shutout and kept Mendham off the board setting the stage for four more RFH players to score in the third. JSZ’s Rich Chrampanis has the highlights from the Red Bank Armory:
