Clash of the Titans
Two of New Jersey's Best Battle to 2-2 Tie

February 14th, 2013

Our Varsity Rams, ranked #8 in New Jersey, earned a hard-fought tie with #7 ranked St. Joseph's Metuchen at the Ice Vault Arena on Tuesday night.  St. Joe's, fresh off a big 2-1 win against #3 Don Bosco, dominated most of the play at the outset.  However, the Rams persevered and took a 2-0 lead late into the second period.  St Joe's cut the lead with 16 seconds left in the second, and then scored the equalizer with a little more than 3 minutes left in the game.  The final minutes were filled with end-to-end action and glorious scoring chances for both teams with Ramsey Freshman goaltender, Tyler Harmon, making several key saves on point blank shots.  Thanks to the extraordinary effort of Sophomore Alex Whelan, the Rams had a glorious chance for the game winner at the buzzer.  Battling the lone St Joe's defensemen for the loose puck from center ice to deep into St. Joe's zone, Alex made an incredible diving effort to chip the puck across to Sophomore line-mate Nick Botta who was streaking hard toward the net with his sites on the winning tally with about a second to go.  However, the St. Joe's defender, who was sprawled on the ice with Whelan, made an equally extraordinary play by knocking the puck away from Botta with a desperate swing of his stick just as Nick was about to fire the potential game winner. 

It was a great effort by two of New Jersey's best teams and, perhaps, apropos that the game ended without a loser.
