last three years and had been playing together since their elementary days.
Babicz netted eight goals and three assists and Bell fired in four goals and added one assist.
“He was quite versatile and could play outside or center midfielder or on defense,” said Breznitsky of Babicz. “And Bell’s size helped bolster our defense and shut down the opponents.”
Bushinger netted six goals and four assists and Sigmon had two goals and eight assists while Franzone, who played left midfielder and left back, played a major role on defense.
“Bushinger was one of the most improved players on the team and Sigmon was a good field general,”
pointed out Breznitsky. And Franzone, “As a leftsided player, he did very well at midfield or in the backfield.”
The Raiders also got some fine offense from sophomore Jeff Hensal, who scored eight goals and had two assist but also got great assistance from defensive “Steel Curtain” backs senior Jim Cooney and sophomore Dwight Simms. Also providing depth were: seniors James Annese, Dan Gaetano, Matt Metzgar, Patrick Meredith and Brian O’Neil; juniors Matt Vanderheyden and Mike Kobliska; sophomores Mike Miller, Rick Fleissner and Ray DiNizo; and freshmen Ryan Breznitsky and Ricardo Arocha.

The Westfield High School Ice Hockey team kicked off the 20002001 season on November 22, with an exciting, 54, loss to the alumni. The alumni were stacked with big time scorers Ronnie Kashlak, Josh Falcone and Matt Gaultieri as well as skilled defensemen like Brad Schwarz and Brendan Hickey. The alumni’s goalies, Chad Puschel and John Diorio, were on fire, playing one of the best games of their careers. This is only the second time in the history of Westfield Ice Hockey that the alumni has taken the glory.
This year’s varsity team has high hopes. After last seasons disappointing record the team is working hard to regain the glory and status of past years. The Blue Devils have been practicing and conditioning almost four days a week during the preseason, spending time both on the ice and off to have what it takes to be winners.
The varsity looked and played better than last year; however, all the preseason training was not enough to defeat the Ice Hockey legends. Pressure was even from both teams with the puck spending equal time at both ends. It was not until the middle of the first period that the seasoned alumni took control with two goals.
Varsity captain Brandon Kape charged up the team by sinking the
puck at the end of the first period. Two scores by Chris Schwarz and one by Brian Luck brought the varsity score to four. Goals by Ronnie Kashlak, Matt Gaultieri, and Josh Falcone brought the alumni total to five.
Even with six players on the ice in the waning minutes the varsity was not able to defeat the alumni.
The Blue Devil’s Ice Hockey team is anxious to see all its fans out this season and will work hard to make it a winning season.
Wyckoff ‘Y’ Girls Sink FSPY Swimmers, 11197
With many besttime swims, the FanwoodScotch Plains Girls “B” swim team, rallied from a 26point deficit but fell short against Wyckoff, 11197, on November 25.
In the individual medleys, Janene Senofonte, Casey Griffin and Kate Gousman all posted best times to take third place for their respective age groups while Diane Fitzpatrick and Theresa Son turned in their fastest efforts to clinch first and second in the 1314 200. In freestyle, 1112 Christine Colon and 1314 Jesse Foster won their events with besttime swims while Lindsay Hauptman posted her fastest taking second for the 910s.
Although the Piranhas could not clinch a first in breaststroke, 910 Kim berly Many had her best time, and
there were two sets of secondand thirdplace finishes: for the 1112s, Nina Williams and Cecilia Della Peruti, and for the 1314s, J. Foster and Sarah Schwartz.
Melissa Desnoyers, Elizabeth Peach and Ariana Lyons combined to sweep the 910 backstroke event while C. Colon and N. Williams followed with a onetwo finish for the 1112s. Allyson Salisbury won for the 1314s and K. Gousman posted a besttime swim for the 1518s, taking second. Eightandunder Emma Nagle opened the butterfly events with a firstplace touch, C. Griffin flew to a besttime win for the 1112s, and A. Salisbury won the 100 fly for the 1314s. 15yard TD. Andy Lessner’s PAT kick
was no good, and PHS led 76. MacKay recovered a fumble by Cardinal quarterback Amar Dixon which set up a 39yard WHS TD march. Mroz accounted for 28 of those yards, including the final 7 for the TD. Jenkins ran the twopoint conversion.
The Cardinals drew within 1413 by the end of the opening period, as Dixon had a 19yard run and a 15yard pass to Bobby Holloman to set up his own oneyard sneak. Andzell blocked the PAT.
Westfield’s next drive saw Jenkins rip off an 11yard gain and Daly go
for 15 more, setting up MacDonald’s 31yard TD pass to a wideopen Mitchell. The Cardinals responded as Dixon connected with Holloman for a 60yard touchdown to narrow the score to 2119 (King broke up the conversion pass).
Plainfield recovered a MacDonald fumble on the next series, but the WHS defense came up big, with MacKay stopping Dixon on a fourthand4 at the Westfield 13. But on second down, Reavis fumbled on the nine and Cardinal Leslie Collins picked it up and ran in for the touchdown. The PAT run by Dixon was stuffed by King and McKeon, but the Cardinals were back on top 2521.
Westfield kept its composure, as Mroz and MacDonald both ran for 10, MacDonald hit Mroz for 11, then Mroz went for 11 up the middle. With 28 seconds left in the half, MacDonald hit Reavis on a screen and the junior was escorted into the
end zone by a slew of blockers. Lessner’s kick made it 2825.
The Cardinals engineered a drive to the WHS 10, but a penalty stalled the drive and Mitchell and Jenkins broke up passes as the Devils defense held. After a series of punts, McKeon came up with his big play.
On first down from their 29, the Cardinals sent Joshua Belle in motion to the same side of the field as Hollomon, whose job was to sprint downfield and take the defenders with him, while Dixon hit Belle. But Plainfield had tried the play earlier, and McKeon sensed the play and was
there to steal the ball from Belle. Eight plays later, Mroz got blocks from Johnston and Young and scored his second touchdown for a 3525 lead.
The wildest play of the game came at the end of Plainfield’s next series. After the Cardinals penetrated to the Westfield 43, two incomplete passes and two penalties forced a punt. Mroz disdained the fair catch but fumbled around the Westfield 45 and a highlight film ensued, with players from both teams picking up, then dropping the ball, before Mitchell recovered at the WHS 6! A faircatch interference penalty against Plainfield brought the whole play back and the next punt rolled quietly dead at Westfield’s 48.
The alljunior backfield of Daly (12 yards), Reavis (23) and Jenkins (14) needed just three plays to reach the PHS three, where Daly went in for his second TD, finalizing the score.
