WAYNE – In one of the most physical games of the season, between two of the State’s top programs, Don Bosco prevailed 2-1 to win their 4th straight Bergen County Tournament, becoming the only champion that the tournament has ever seen. Billed as a battle of Ramsey, before a standing room only crowd, the game did not disappoint. Evenly matched up and down the lineups, Ramsey outshot Bosco 33-32, but could only muster a single goal on DBP Goalie Alexei Masanko.
Bosco entered the game having defeated Mahwah 7-0 and rival Bergen Catholic 3-2, while Ramsey’s road to the final included an 8-0 win over Indian Hills and an overtime victory over Glen Rock, 2-1.
Bosco senior, Joe Verboys, whose 2 goal performance against Bergen Catholic, propelled the Ironmen into their fourth straight finals appearance, was again the hero. Up 1-0 but facing an onslaught from the Ramsey power play, senior, Michael Jordan’s clearing attempt came right off the boards to Verboys, who got behind the Ramsey defenders and buried what turned out to be the game winner.
Next up, the Ironmen take on The Hun School, Sunday January 25, 6:15 pm @ Ice Vault.
