After finishing in second place last year in the Hudson Valley ice Hockey League, the Kittatinny Ice Hockey Club is off to a solid 2014 season with a 3-2 win over Arlington. 

Kittatinny took the lead during the first period with a goal from captain Tim Johnson.  During the second period captain Daniel Snape scored to further Kittatinny's lead to 2-0.  Arlington rallied to come from behind and tied the score, 22, at the end of the second period. 

Kittatinny was determined to secure the win and did that with another goal from Tim Johnson, bringing the score to 3-2 in the third period.  During all three period there was a strong net held by goalie Nick Fallon.

The team next meets FDR Saturday at 4 p.m. at Skylands Ice World in 2765 State Route 23, in Stockholm.

The club was founded as a way for the kids to be able to continue to play ice hockey throughout their high school years.  It is run totally by volunteers, including head coach Tim Doyle.  Currently, the team is comprised mostly of students from Kittatinny and Hopatcong.   Iced out of the school based ice hockey team systen, these kids travel to the Hudson Valley in New York State weekly to be able to play a sport that they love.  The league consists of teams from Washingtonville/Warwick, Orange County West, FDR, Arlington, Cornwall and John Jay.
