|VIDEO: Don Bosco beats Glen Rock for another Bergen County title|
Don Bosco Prep is still the undisputed king of ice hockey in Bergen County.
The Ironmen won the Bergen County Tournament for the sixth consecutive year by pulling away from Glen Rock in the final. Don Bosco controlled much of the game, played at the Ice Vault in Wayne, to record a 6-1 triumph.
Ryan McLinskey scored two goals in the championship game and was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. McLinskey scored just 1:03 into the game to give Don Bosco a strong start.
Glen Rock responded midway through the first period, as Patrick Smith set up John LaMacchia for a tying goal. But the Ironmen struck back late in the first on a tip-in by Tyler Sedlak, and led the rest of the way.
Liam McLinskey had a goal and an assist for Don Bosco. Tristan Frese and Seiho Jin also scored for the Ironmen. Thomas Schweighardt recorded three assists and C.J. McGee had a pair of helpers.
Goalie Alexei Masanko didn't see a great deal of action in the first two periods, but made several key saves as he stopped 15 of 16 shots overall.
Ryan McAuley had 28 saves for Glen Rock, the third seed. This was the first appearance in the county final for the Panthers, who are 10-3-2 this season.
Don Bosco is 11-3-1 and ranked #5 in the state of New Jersey. The Ironmen have never lost a game in the county tournament, winning it each time since its inception in 2012.
