Princeton 3 Southern 2 (OT)

Aidan Trainor’s goal with 1:30 left in overtime propelled #9 seed Princeton into the Public “A” quarterfinals.  Southern Regional got goals from Jack Conrad and Nolan Ruff.  Conrad’s goal in the first period off a great feed from Paul Keyes gave Southern a 1-0 lead at the end of one period.  There were three goals in a span of 1:48 early in the second period.  Ruff’s goal was sandwiched in between Princeton scores by Justin Joyce and Brendon McCormick.   We were 90 seconds away from a shootout, but McCormick fed Trainor’s who’s shot was able to navigate through traffic and give the Tigers a second round win.  Watch great playoff highlights from Toms River:

Three Shore Conference teams punched tickets to the quarterfinals on Thursday highlighted by Wall and Middletown North scoring upset wins on the road.  Six more teams are in action this Friday night and SSZ will have more state hockey highlights.
