Randolph Boys Ice Hockey Pummels Morristown in Season Opener with Hat Trick from Crisafulli

Junior Jacob Campbell charges toward the Morristown goal on the way to a Rams victory, 6-2, on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023, at Mennen Arena.

Randolph Boys Ice Hockey beat Morristown 6-2 at their season opener on Thursday, Dec. 7, at Mennen Arena.

“It feels great to be back on the ice with the team,” Crisafulli explained. “We were determined to win.”

Randolph came onto the ice aggressively, immediately moving the puck down the ice to Morristown’s side. Sophomore Vincent Crisafulli promptly scored the first goal of the season, starting the momentum of the game.

The Rams defense prevented Morristown from getting close to the goal in the first period. Randolph capitalized on this opportunity as sophomore Shane Melly scored, followed by another goal from junior captain Jase Zangara one minute later on a power play.

Randolph came off the ice with high spirits after the first period.

“We felt electrified that we were able to gain such a big lead to start the game, but we knew we could still play better,” senior goalie John Krynicki explained.

The second period started strong for Randolph, as Crisafulli impressively shot the puck past the goalie and into the pocket.

Crisafulli struck again minutes later, assisted by junior Jacob Campbell, extending the lead to 5-0.

“One goal we had as a team was to win,” Crisafulli continued. “That’s the biggest thing that matters; we just have to grind and want it.”

After a conflict on the ice, Morristown was able to score on a 4-3 power play. The Colonials scored again minutes after on a 5-3 power play, ending the second period with a score of 5-2.

Randolph quickly got their momentum back in the third period with a final goal from sophomore Keegan Melly, ending the game with a score of 6-2.

“We really just wanted to take it one step at a time,” Krynicki concluded. “Getting that first win out of the way was very important to us. So now our focus shifts to Morris Knolls.”

Randolph takes the ice again on Monday, Dec. 11, against Morris Knolls at Mennen Arena.
