Boys Ice Hockey celebrates the team’s victory against Morristown Beard on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2024, with the Rams remaining undefeated at 12-0-1.

The Rams kept their undefeated, 12-0-1 streak alive with a 4-2 victory over the Crimson on Wednesday evening, Jan. 17, at Mennen Arena.

“It’s another great game for us, and we have to keep the energy at a high level as we head into the end of the season,” junior captain Brian Cislo said.

Randolph entered the evening as the No. 1 ranked public school ice hockey team in the state. The game started off uncharacteristically for the Rams as they surrendered the first tally and trailed 1-0 halfway through the first. Just under two minutes later, the Rams roared back with an immediate answer to tie the contest as sophomore Vincent Crisafulli potted home a rebound on the doorstep.

“The team needed a spark, and I think getting that goal ignited our fire for the rest of the night,” Crisafulli said.

The second-period Rams looked like a team shot out of a cannon as they allowed only one shot against them and spent most of the period in the offensive zone. The continued pressure paid off as Randolph was rewarded with yet another goal from Crisafulli to give the Rams a 2-1 lead.

A quick goal in the final frame off the stick of junior captain Jase Zangara brought Randolph to a 3-1 lead. The Rams continued to fend off the Crimson attack for the rest of the game, despite giving up one more goal late in the game, before junior Andrew George deposited his 15th of the season into an empty net, sealing the deal at 4-2.

“We love beating Beard,” George said.

The unbeaten Rams will look to continue their dominance on Saturday evening, Jan. 20, when they face off against Bernards, at 8:15 p.m. at Mennen Arena in Morristown.
