Quin Peene notched two goals and an assist for Ridgewood, while Wylie Sherman had a goal and two helpers. Jack Kiernan, Dylan Peabody and Dan Gioia also had Maroon goals.
Ted Murphy and Ben Pounds combined to make 11 saves, with Pounds allowing just one goal in the second half.
Shane Fable scored twice for Bergen Catholic. Brett Zabransky recorded a goal and an assist for the Crusaders and Anthony Scozzafava also found the net.
Dennis Priestner had 16 saves in the defeat, as Bergen Catholic slipped to 3-3.
