Brooklyn Hosts Weekend Ice Matches At Aviator Arena
The Jersey Rockhoppers, who are a distant second place to the Aces, did find a way to hand Brooklyn only their third loss of the season.
Jersey held off a late third period rally and won 7-5 last Saturday night at the Essex County Richard J. Codey Arena at South Mountain.
Trailing 6-2 into the third period, Jeese Felten, CJ Tozzo and Kyle Mc- Cullough scored goals for Brooklyn to cut the Jersey lead.
