The 2018-19 Season Has Begun...

    Welcome back for another fun filled season of high school hockey.  There is so much to say about changes in our league.  First, we bid goodbye to Pequannock HS who chose to leave the MCSSIHL to co-op with West Milford HS in the Big North League.  Next, Morris Hills HS, one of the first schools in New Jersey to sponsor an ice hockey team has joined with their sister school, Morris Knolls HS to become the Morris Knolls/Hills Co-op.  The word is that Morris Hills will remain as a co-op for one more season after which the program will be dropped.  Third, with the loss of Pequannock and Morris Hills, the Charrette Division has again been merged into the Halvorsen Division.  
Stay tuned for more news in the future.  Until then, LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!

Halvorsen Cup is Around the Corner!

    The Halvorsen Cup is finally set.  On Thursday, 2/13/2020, the first round of the Halvorsen Cup begins as #4 Vernon takes on #5  Sparta/Jefferson at 3:50 at the Skylands Ice rink.  Later that evening at 6:15 at Mennen, #3 Mendham will host #6 Kinnelon.  
    The winner of the Vernon v Sparta/Jefferson game will return to Mennen to play #1 Roxbury.  The other semifinal matchup will be the winner of the Mendham v Kinnelon game against #2 Montville.
     The Halvorsen Cup Final will be played on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at 4:15pm at Mennen.  
Good luck to all teams!  


Haas Cup Championship Coming Soon!

    The Haas Cup

 #3 Knolls Upset by Madison!

    The competition for the Mennen Cup began as the only Mennen Division Co-op team,  #3 Morris Knolls/Hills,  hosted #6 Madison, last year's Mennen Cup Champs.  In an exciting game in which the Madison goalie, Tom Keaton, stood on his head receiving 43  shots and making  43 saves (that means it was a shut out) and a single goal by Madison's Liam Frye  on an assist by Tyler Shannon, Morris Knolls/Hills was eliminated by #6 Madison 1-0.  This was the first win this year for Madison against any Mennen Division team and the  victory gives the Dodgers a record on 9-12-1 which is within the NJSIAA limit for qualification for entry into the State Tournament. #4 Chatham will host #5 Morristown on Tuesday, 2/18/2020 at 8pm. 
     In the Halvorsen Division, Vernon shutout Sparta/Jefferson 6-0 to advance to the Semifinals where they will face #1 Roxbury next Wednesday, 2/19/20 at 7:45.  In the other  Halvorsen First Round game, #3 Mendham defeated  #6 Kinnelon by the same score, 6-0.  Mendham will play #2 Montville at Mennen on Thursday, 2/20/20 at 4:15p.
     In the Haas Division, #1 Park Regional scored a 7-1 victory over Parsippany Regional.  In the 4v5 game, Gil St. Bernard upset West Morris Central 4-1.    The two victors will meet in the Haas Semifinal on Wednesday, 2/19/20 at 4:15pm.  On the other side,  MO-HO-HA aka the triple co-op Mt Olive/Hopatcong/Hackettstown shut out HighPt/WallkillValley 10-0.  #2 MtLakes/Boonton defeated #7 Newton/Lenape 6-1.  MO-HO-HA will meet MtLakes/Boonton next Wednesday, 2/19/2020 at 5;45pm.

Good luck to all teams as they prepare for the next round or the NJ States.
