Both the Manalapan High School and the Jackson Liberty/Point Pleasant Borough co-op ice hockey teams were in search of their first victories of the season when they faced off against each other on Dec. 6 at the Howell Ice Arena.

Tied going into the third period, Jackson Liberty was the club that pushed through in the final period of play with three goals to defeat Manalapan, 4-1.

“Our team played a great game,” said Jackson Liberty coach Kyle Weise. “We did what we wanted to do by getting the punk north-south and hustling all around the ice. This was a step in the right direction for us moving forward this season.”

Zach D’Andrea registered an assist and a goal scored in the third period to help Jackson Liberty get the victory. Will Herington scored the go-ahead goal for Jackson Liberty with 7:25 left to play.

Joe Mazza scored the only Manalapan goal, which came in the first minute of the first period.

Jackson Liberty is at 1-1 on the season, while Manalapan dropped to 0-2 to start the year.
