December 10th, 2017
On Sunday night at the Ice Vault in Wayne, NJ, the Ramapo Raiders vs the West Milford Highlanders took place with Ramapo winning with a score of 3-2.
Pierce Fogarty and William Neal both helped the Ramapo Ice Hockey team out by beginning the 2nd period off with a rousing goal.
Along with Jake Trabattoni and Ben Surat achieving two more goals.
As for the West Milford team, Jared Miller and Ryan Psych, having helped with the first goal and then managed another goal later on,
scored the team’s first and second goals of the game during the 3rd period.
During an interview after the game with the head coach, Mike McLachlan, we asked him how he felt that it was his team’s first win of the season.
He brought along one of his chosen captain’s of the Ramapo team, Ben Suat.
Here is what McLachlan said:
“Their goaltender was superb and stopped a lot of shots and we kept on pressing. The attitude from this team in the beginning during the summer
training has been ‘never give up, play hard all three periods, break it down to one period and one game at a time. We started out the season with some rough games,
but we’ve been improving steadily and the players, Ben’s leadership, and the captains and team, they’ve really been buying into our system and it’s great to finally get the win.”
Ben Suat (Team Captain) :
“The biggest thing was shots, not a lot of games were getting quality shots. That was the biggest thing for us. We were moving the puck well and getting
it in on that and we played well as a team tonight.”
