Crusaders blow out Bosco, 10-0

The best ice hockey team in the state was at the top of its game.

Bishop Eustace Prep scored eight goals in a 10-minute blitz in the second period en route to a 10-0, mercy-rule-shortened win over Don Bosco Prep yesterday in a Gordon Conference game at the Flyers Skate Zone in Pennsauken.

"We're improving every game," said Bishop Eustace senior defenseman Sam Gerulsky, whose goal ended the game with 7 minutes, 52 seconds remaining in the third period.

Sophomore forward Andrew Tegeler scored three goals, all in a 4:30 span of the second period.

Senior forward Chris Gentile and junior forward Jamie Hill each added a goal and two assists, and senior goalie Nick Casella made 20 saves for Bishop Eustace (13-1, 10-0 conference), the No. 1 team in New Jersey, according to

Don Bosco Prep (6-9-3, 5-8-1), which had won two in a row, stayed even in a scoreless first period and had some good scoring chances on a five-on-three power play.

"My defense really came through," Casella said.

Junior Matthew Toy broke the scoreless tie four minutes into the second period, and the Crusaders quickly rolled to their 13th consecutive victory.

"We picked up our intensity," Eustace senior defenseman Zach Green said.
