PITTSTON, Pa. – Jake Kaplan (Bowie, Md.) notched the only two Mustang goals to give Morrisville their second win of the season on Friday afternoon.


  • Final Score: Morrisville 2, King’s 1
  • Location: Pittston, Pa.
  • Records: Morrisville 2-5-1, King’s 2-6-0


  • Morrisville dominated King’s offensively throughout the contest, but it wasn’t until they went on the power play early in the second period that they were able to capitalize on their opportunities.
  • Kaplan found the back of the net at the 1:14 mark in the middle period.  James Boisvert (Mansfield, Tex.) assisted on the tally.
  • The Mustangs held the 1-0 lead throughout most of the second period, but a power play goal of their own got the Monarchs back into the contest with 37 seconds remaining in the second.
  • The deadlock would not last long into the third period as Kaplan notched his second of the game at the 4:15 mark.  The goal was unassisted.
  • Morrisville was able to lock down defensively in the back half of the third period, including shutting the Monarchs down with their penalty kill units.
  • Owen Liskiewicz (Redbank, N.J.) picked up the win for the Mustangs, collecting 26 saves, 12 of which occurred during the third period.


The Mustangs will return to their home ice tomorrow evening to close out their non-conference series against the Monarchs.  Puck drop is set for 5 PM.
