While their cross-town brethren at Morristown High are celebrating their first hockey championship, puck-chasers at the Morristown-Beard School are not so thrilled with their own victory.

That’s because they must share top honors in the state non-public school division with the Christian Brothers Academy, after skating to a 4-4 tie on Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark.

Randy Velischek, the former New Jersey Devil who coaches at the Morris Township school, has plenty to say in our video.

His counterpart at CBA apparently feels the same way.

As the video suggests, there is a proper way to settle this…but it may take some time.

And that's how a state championship shall be remembered: 4 to 4 after 4 periods, for Morristown-Beard and Christian Brothers. Photo by Kevin Coughlin
