The MBS boys ice hockey team’s outstanding season came to a close on Monday, March 2nd as the Crimson were edged by top-seeded Christian Brothers Academy, 3-1, in the State Tournament quarterfinals. Despite the loss, the Crimson finished with a 20-5-1 record — the second best record in School history.
The Crimson team started the year 0-2 before going on a 14-game unbeaten streak. Highlights of the season included a 5-2 win over Bergen Catholic (ranked #1 in the state at the time) and two victories against Randolph (ranked #9 in the state) including a 5-1 win to capture the 2020 Mennen Cup championship.
This year’s record of 20-5-1 ranks second only to the team’s mark of 21-5-2 in 2013-14 — the year Morristown-Beard School skated to a State Championship.
On Monday night, the Crimson’s lone goal came in the third period when sophomore Billy Moloney ’22 scored off an assist from senior Tommy Matthews ’20. Goalie Luke McManus ’21 stopped 18 shots for MBS.
Congratulations to Head Coach Scott Green and the entire team on an outstanding year. Go Crimson!
