Team 1 2 3 Final
Vernon 1 0 0 1
Madison 0 3 1 4

In what is sure to be a preview of the Halvorsen Cup match-up, the Madison Dodgers hosted the Vernon Vikings last night in a barn burner.  Vernon drew first blood with an early Cole Brennan (TJ Santaita) score in the first period.  Then it was a back-and-forth battle as these two heavy weights slugged it out till the final buzzer.

Madison rang the bell with goals by Jacob Erickson and Jett Tom, Tom with the hat a hat trick on the night.  Matt Gero, Kyle Pruzick and Dave Renzulli all had assists.  Although the final score shows a three-point differential, that was not an indication of how close it was.

Madison goal keeper Matt Ubertaccio was masterful as he saved 26 of Vernon 27 barrage of shots.  The Vikings’ big defender Steven Gay was an enforcer, fending off the Dodgers like it was his job.

Watch Morris Sussex Sports commentators Ryan Sudol and Derek DePascale break it all down.
