Revenge is sweet.
As if a shot at the Public B ice hockey title game wasn’t enough, Morristown High School faced Chatham – the team that beat the Colonials for the championship last year – Thursday night in what would become an instant classic.
All tied up three minutes into the final period, Colonial Bradly Greik put one past Chatham goalie C.J. Albanese to give Morristown a 2-1 lead, and one that would remain true for the win, according to nj.com.
A scoreless first period led to an early score in the second frame when Morristown’s Randy Terhune netted a goal with 13:28 remaining. He was assisted by Justin Leifer.
Chatham answered back with 5:52 left in the game, as Mark McNally pushed one past Morristown goalie Shane Brown. Tied at one, Greik stole the show – and the win – with a goal and 3:44 left on the clock.
Morristown, ranked No. 4 in the tournament, had lost to the top-seed Chatham twice during the regular season.
Morristown will go on to face Ramsey in the Public B championship game on Sunday, March 9 at 5 p.m. at the Prudential Center in Newark. It's Morristown's second consecutive appearance in the title game.
