Joseph Decker opened the scoring in the first before Adam Glod doubled it in the second while Dalton Tango turned aside every shot he faced as Scotch Plains-Fanwood skated past Parsippany Hills, 4-0, in the Essex County Holiday Tournament at Codey Arena in West Orange.
After Glod sent Scotch Plains into the second intermission up 2-0, Jonny Scheer and Jack White scored eighr minutes apart in the third period to cap the scoring.
Scotch Plains-Fanwood wins its third straight game to improve to 7-1-3 this season. It will look to keep the ball rolling against Pequannock today at 5:15 p.m. as the Essex County Holiday Tournament ensues.
Parsippany Hills-Parsippany, meanwhile, falls for the fourth straight game to stand 2-7. It will attempt to right the ship against Oratory Prep this afternoon at 2:15 p.m.
Controlling the play from the drop of the puck, Decker tipped a shot from the point 7:51 into the game to put Scotch Plains on the board 1-0. William Mauer and Thomas Bruckman assisted on the play.
The goal stood until 10:41 of the second period when Glod scored shorthanded off an end-to-end rush, sneaking it through Parsippany goalie Justin Wellman, five-hole, to put Scotch Plains up by two.
Despite the best of efforts from Wellman, who finished with 67 saves on 71 shots, Scotch Plains scored twice in the third frame to blow it open.
Scheer scored, unassisted, on a wrap-around 6:11 into the third before White’s snapshot from the right circle beat Wellman high, glove-side in the final minute of regulation.
