Doug Nevins says the game showed a lot about them and laid out what had to be worked on and improved. “To go 2-2 with the #1 team in Nj until there were 7 minutes left is incredible.” West Orange started strong with the first goal of the game scored by Jack Dvorin off of an assist from Arthur Rosu’s throw-in. Mason Bashkoff evened the score out in the second half with a goal assisted by Jared Charles. Justin Scavalla had 3 great saves in goal. The game brought out quite a crowd and was an enjoyable night.

They scored a beautiful goal on us with 15 minutes to go. We fought back trying to tie it but just missed.”
